Lightbulb Hey... I am new...

Hey everyone,
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...

Okay, that's about it

Thanks for readin'

heyy :)
Are you still riding now? or have you stopped.
That would be a bummer about your knee though. Hope it gets better
