By the way...I've never actually heard anyone say 'howdy' in a serious way :P
Hi everyone! My name is Laura and I'm a 17 year old rider.
I started in 5th grade, so I think I must have been about 12 or so. I started off riding english because one of our family friends was an instructor at a local barn. Since then, I've ridden at about 5(???) different barns.
Currently, I own a paint gelding named What A Proposal aka Ryan. I bought him as a western pleasure horse a year ago, and am slowly turning him into a hunter jumper :) We've only jumped 2'3" at this point but I'm hoping we'll start to progress a lot faster in the near-future.
^This is Ryan and I :)
It turned out awkwardly large, but I'm technology-challenged and will not attempt to make it smaller...
