I am Olivia... or Livvie... I have been riding for 5 years, 6 years in July!! I have ridden more than 20 different horses... i stopped riding which is really upsetting but my knee has been killing me and I cant keep my ankles down due to major pain!! I taught a Tennesse Walker horse how to jump... that is when i realized that i wanted to train horses and start my own rescue barn.
I went to my first show last October and receieved 2nd place... it was so not a formal show because the formal show we were going to was cancelled and we found a quick replacement. My trainer tells me i have a 'gift' i can jump on any horse and they listen. She said they like the way i ride them, i am gentle yet stern... i guess you could say riding is like second nature to me... :P
I miss riding... the new trainer that my barn hired well she made me cry... like i said i have been riding for almost six years and the new trainer was acting as if it was the first time i had jumped on a horse... SO that ticked me a little but it made me realize i was ready to move on and get better.
JUMPING is my life.... i love it... that is what i want to do is just jump and jump and jump!!! I love the equitation aspect of english but jumping just kinda speaks to me...
yeah i haven't ridden since i think march or before... its horrib;e!!! i still havent gone to the doctor... ugh./.. i am going to ride as soon i as i can... i am changing barns and i can't wait to ge back in the saddle
