    New adult rider

    Hi everyone!

    I never in a million years thought I would end up riding horses much less owning one but 6 months ago we ended up moving suddenly to a rural area and a lady we met offered to teach my girls to ride. So I bought my girls boots and helmets and hauled them on over, to receive a very stern lecture on how I was not to set foot in the barn again in my Crocs! So I bought myself a pair of boots and the next time we went over I was informed that it was MY turn to ride, so despite me protesting that I was too old for this, up I went and I've never looked back.

    When our friend became to busy to continue giving lessons, my sister-in-law offered to train and keep a horse for us. So after several months of searching we bought a Quarter Horse that my girls named Delfina. She's a bit green but is an absolute sweetheart who's learning fast and is even friends with my Sister-in-law's Thoroughbred who hasn't ever gotten along with another horse.
