Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself. I'm a re-rider that is currently taking lessons at a local barn close to my university here in NC.
When I was young, and I mean like 10-13 I rode a little bit, a did a few jumps but nothing spectacular, never showed. I'm now in my senior year spring semester at my university and am BORED. My passion for horses has been re-ignited and after looking at a couple of barns in the area, I have settled with a smaller barn with a very passionate teacher that offers lessons at a spectacular price. She is very understanding, and tomorrow is my second lesson with her.... I already have my posting trot, got to work on perfecting it though. Can't wait for my lesson tomorrow!
I went to a local tack shop and got a pair of field boots for $60 and 3 pairs of breeches for 10$ each. Talk about a STEAL! Now here's my only problem--I want more! I think about horses every dang day, and am only taking lessons once a week. I'm only in school in this area for about 3 more months, so I'm not sure that a lease would be very economically smart...right? What can I do to "get out there" more? I don't want to bother my lesson teacher too much by hanging around the barn all the time..but I have so much free time on my hands I don't know what else to do?
Any thoughts or any ideas?
So happy to be a part of this community!
Here's a picture of Levi (the lesson horse) and I at my first lesson!
