Hi! New here. Have ridden all of my life until about 12 years ago and recently started again. Mom to three kiddos, one of which is horse crazy like her mother, so we've begun a new horsey life.
Gastric bypass surgery recently brought me down 160, yes, 160 lbs and put my butt back in the saddle.
We rescued a little mare earlier this year, my daughters girl, Flicka. She's a 14.3 (but still growing a bit b/c of malnutrition) quarter/paint girl. Registered but we don't have her papers, nor do we have a need for them really. She came to us HORRID but has come along very nicely. She had been started western, but with my help and the help of our trainer (Sarah lessons at a local barn) she is coming along nicely English retraining wise.
Personally, I ride a horse named George, a Percheron thoroughbred cross that boards at our barn and is owned by a friend. He's my bestest buddy, and we just trail ride and play around, he needs me and I him.
So..that's my introduction. Glad to be here.
Here's a before and after of my girls:
when we got her, in January:
and last month some time, first time Sarah had ridden her:
