Hi, I'm looking forward to being part of a horsey forrum!. I have just purchased a little thoroughbred mare who is a little gem, and plan on training her for a bit of dressage. I have extentsive experience with horse on the ground after working in both harness and thoroughbred racing industries for years, but the riding bit not so much. Ridden for years on and off but just trail riding mostly. Learning dressage is whole different ball game. I have 2 fantastic boys, one is 4yrs the other 1. I also have 5 cats, 2 dogs. Love my animals.
