Really glad I found this site. Im new to the site. I've not owned horses in a long time. I have ridden throughout the years, mainly friends that laid there horses up for the winter and then need me to come ride them for a few days to calm them down.. A few months ago went to Gatlinburg and went horse back riding, and it clicked that I am missing one of my all time favorite things in the world. So here I am looking at horses and debating on how I can make it work.
Grew up a Quarter Horse guy and is the breed I owned in the past. However, when I was younger I use to ride Mtn. Horse's that I guess are now officially Rocky Mtns, Ky Mtns etc. Back when I rode them everyone had em in the Mtns of Ky. I look back fondly on the all day trail rides on the racking, walking horses and have figured out that if/when I get a horse Im going to the gaited horses. Love to find a good racking TWH with Gears. Prob. Need to get a good "husband" horse .. cause I aint no spring chicken anymore...LOL
Anyway thanks for having me I am really enjoying reading the posts and learning about new things. Anyone near Louisville with horses that has one needing a rider for a day, let me know, I would gladly fill a saddle.
