New to this forum

But not new to horses. I have been riding for 32 years, almost 33. I trained dressage horses in High School, and competed in many 4-H shows and open shows. I was the 1997 Rodeo queen for my home town, because I wanted to try something new.

I am not racist as far as breeds go, I love all horses. I think most disciplines are neato and enjoy them. My main love is eventing though. I haven't had a chance to compete in one yet, but my training is ever continuing.

The mare I have now, I met at the Ritter's dressage barn. She bonded to me, and eventually ended up with her. I taught her a lot of her basics before I bought her, and the Ritters were going to use her as a lesson horse, till they ran out of time to keep up with her training. I introduced her to little pops over 55 gallon drums last summer, and she is very bold, and willing. This year I am going to start her right with the cavaletti, and really work on my form. My form is next to nothing, as I broke my back 3 years ago, and lost most of my muscle. This year should be interesting.

I look forward to 'meeting' like minded people, that are somewhat serious about riding, training and showing; and making friends.
