    New HERE!

    Hey everybody! I am new to the forum. I am switching over from another forum hoping there are more adults on this one. The last forum I was a member of was mostly visited by teens and it was hard for me to relate to their boyfriend problems. Anyway...

    I am married to a handsome man and we are expecting our first child July 22! She is almost here! Her name is going to be Sydney Elise.

    I have been riding seriously since I was about 9 years old. I have owned the same horse for 13 years. He is a QH, 15 years old, 16hh, red lineback dun. We did western show events (AQHA Trail mostly) for a long time but recently switched to full time English. Last year we competed in our first Dressage show and won our division!! Then I got pregnant...so he has had the last 6 months off for pregnancy leave



    Here is a picture of me and the handsome horse!

    Hi there! My name's Claire - I'm new to riding as well as this forum, and although I'm only nineteen that's technically an adult, so I hope you'll forgive me ;)

    Your horse looks beautiful! In the UK we don't really have any western riding - is it difficult to switch not just yourself but your horse from one style to the other?

    Hi and welcome to the Horseforum.

    There are plenty of adults on here... me included. How exciting expecting your first child! I have two kids, my son has just turned 16 and my daughter is 5.
    Have fun posting, I'm looking forward to seeing you around the threads. :)

    Well it wasn't that hard for me...but I did a lot of emphasis on equitation (or horsemanship as the western riders call it) and trail show events. The trail show stuff focuses a lot on striding and does a lot of work over ground poles like low level hunters. And my horse seemed to immediately love the english saddle more than the western.
