I'm 16, and I've been riding for something like six years now. I started off at lessons, like most, and got my first pony when I was 12. Now I own an Irish Sports Horse called Bella; she's 16hh, recently turned 8, and an absoulte gem. I've had her for two and a half years now even though she was young and hadn't done much when I got her, she was a real dote and took me from being terrified to jump to competing in 1m classes.
Recently I've been doing GCSEs and Bella's had a long break, but I've started riding again and hoping to get back into show jumping this summer
