Hi there!

I'd like to introduce myself to everyone. I've been taking casual lessons since 2001 but I started serious lessons around 2005. In 2009 I was a working student for a starter type barn in Wisconsin and I absolutely loved it. I ended up leaving to be a working student in Wales, but due to my lack of a visa among other things, I only stayed for six weeks. I liked it there but much preferred the style of riding I was used to. Hunt seat as apposed to show jumping.
I came back home to Illinois in late February and have been searching for a job- any job! So obviously no money and no car since my old rusty Jeep kicked the bucket last December= no riding since. :( I'm heading back to the place I worked at last year in a week though for around two weeks. I have never owned my own horse because of how darn expensive they are, especially in the Chicago area. I started paying for my own lessons when I was 16 and even worked them off as a cleaner of the office/viewing areas/bathrooms for a while when I was in high school. I would love to have a nice Appendix in the future but one step at a time, eh? I also have a weakness for palomino and lots of chrome.

RIP Deacon

I hope you can ride soon! I'm newer too and I'm still trying to figure things out here...

The best remedy for the soul is to sit on the back of a horse.
