Smile New member (from Sweden!)

My name is Elli, I'm from Sweden, which, if I've got this right, makes me one of a handful Europeans in here. I've registered hoping to discovere new views on horse issues, and to meet interesting new people who share my passion. Unlike many of you, I haven't got a horse of my own; however, I spend a considerable number of hours each week grooming and riding a Swedish Warmblood named Rino. His owners, a married couple with small children and admirable knowledge in the field of horses, occassionally give me riding lessons which, after several years riding English, has geared my interest towards western riding.

And by the way, since I assume many of you have English as your native language, which I have not, I would appreciate you being indulgent towards the lingustic mistakes I might do. I'm taking high school in English so I should be quite comfortable with the language, but sometimes I feel lost in an overwhelming forest of nuances...

Rino, last summer.
