I'm Becky, and along with a few others (as I've noticed) am from the land down under :) I'm 18 and just finished school, attending university next year.
As far as horses go, I've never had my own horse (unfortunately *sobs*) but am convinced that my time WILL come eventually! Haha. In saying that, although I havent owned my own horse, I have been riding for almost 7 years now. For the first 5 years I was riding for pleasure with little instruction. A little 13.3hh grey mixed bred mare taught me the basics and showed me how to do the fundamentals. For the past 2 years though I have been taking my riding seriously (well, for fun too, but you know what I mean!) and have taken a real liking to showing and dressage.
At the moment I am riding my instructors new pony 'Morning Mist' (you guessed it: aka Misty) who is a 7y/o, 14.1hh Grey Welsh B Mare. At the moment she is competing prelim but training novice. She's going super well and I am quite proud of her! Her laterals are going well, and she is just learning to do gridwork. She does have long feet which are in the process of being fixed, and needs some more muscle tone and top line, but hopefully she will be ready for the spring show season! Exciting!
So yeah, that's pretty much the basics of MEEE. Other than being a horse freak, my other passions are reading (twilight.. weeeeeeeeeeee!!), interwebzing, art/sewing/creative stuff and model horse collecting on and off.
Hope to see you all around! This place looks pretty cool!
