Irish joining

Hello guys My name is Amy Ní Ghairbeith & I'm from Donegal in the little island of Ireland. 15 years young, soon to be 16. I'm still a student but I work as a part time Dance Teacher.

I've been riding for nearly 9 years & my horse Across the Border (or just Border for short) is teaching me new things every day! 14yo, 15.3hh, bay thoroughbred. I got him last July, retired from racing. I've re-trained him myself using Monty Roberts, Parelli & other NH methods He's come from an agressive, dominant & difficult to ride horse to a quiet, calm partner who will happily soar over 1m fences & ride a novice dressage test We still have so much more to discover but this is just the first chapter in our life story! We are members of the North West Donegal Pony Club Branch & have enjoyed the rallys & even went to our first competition together.

I ride 2 other horses for a friend, Polly & Rahanleigh. Polly is a 12yo full Irish Cob that will clear any fence you aim her at & Rahanleigh is a 9yo Irish Sports Horse that loves to giddy about & rides a beautiful dressage test.

Anyway, I hope to make some new friends on here. My inbox is always open for a chat & I look forward to hearing all about your horses
Amy

Howdy, Amy, and welcome to the forum .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Welcome to the forum, its a great place.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Hey, welcome to the Forum! On a completely horse-unrelated note...I love the music of your part of the world. I'm a fiddler and play at a lot of Irish sessions around. Do you teach Irish dance?
