    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.

    Mason, I've been out of the saddle for some time too. I recently took a friends thoroughbred on loan because she doesn't have time for both of her horses. If the 72 in your nickname means you're 40 then you're in company. The thing with me though is I forget I'm no spring chicken!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Welcome! Be careful of the winter rest horses. They will not be easy rides most likely, especially if their owners are seeking people to ride them to "calm down" :P

    Hope you learn lots!
