Hi !

Hi Jerseypacer, & Kirsti, thanks for the hello. I really appreciate the replies.
Should we start a conversation in the general topics to give more info on each other ? I really enjoy others and their horses, my family isn't horsey and I don't belong to any clubs anymore so all of my horsey friends are online anyway ! Would love to hear your stories !

you already got mine =pm=again for new guys/girls
54 yr old lady, single (old as dirt heheh) i ride english pleasure-Sonny =buckskin =Percheron X 6 yr gelding=the keg with legs-adore him completely! i am going to my first show in sept-am trying really hard to be the best that i can be! i live with the furry bunch-2 dogs and a cat-have spent many years rescuing German Shepherds that cannot be placed with families due to abuse and or aggression-they get over it and go to a family or they live their life out with me.I manage residential properties and have 300 plus tenants and lots of stress-hence living with animals. back to the horses =i come from a long line of superb horsemen and women-the gene passed me but i got the love, respect and the desire. My grandmother was killed eventing (stepplechasing in the late 40's when women were not recognized as "riders" my oldest brother was a polo player for many years in Europe and did some jumping-which i have never tried! He is gorgeous in the saddle. I have a lot to live up to in this show and am very nervous
. This forum is friendly, informative and sometimes very funny it mostly brightens my day!!!!!

Hi! I'll be 59 in Dec. Got my 1st horse 18 yrs ago. Got my husband into it really good 6 yrs ago that he found his own horse. Up till then he rode one of 3 that he got me. He's 64. Then my sisterinlaw & her hubby got into it (55 & 53) and a friend(64) joined and now we ride,camp together. It's turned into a retirement activity. We ride gaited and have seen some beautiful country that we would never have seen otherways.
We've got 3 horses now, one for my son or the grands should they ride.
I like the forums as you never stop learning new things with horses.

Welcome Tracy

Wow there are more of us here than I thought. I'm 50 for another couple of months.
Like many others rode as a youngster, quit, started up again when I got old and fearless
My husband and I both ride (western/trail), nothing competitive just enjoy sight seeing by horseback.
We love Lake Carl Blackwell near Stillwater Oklahoma. Are you anywhere near there?
