Newbie

Hi All,

It has been 30 years since I've owned horses. Instead of going on vacation we stayed home and got a 3 year old mustang/pinto.Tomorrow, a 14 yo mustang is arriving.
We are looking forward to relearning to ride over the fall and winter, getting ready for trail riding and camping next summer.

I'll take any info you want to pass my way. I looking for riding lessons if you know someone just east of Portland, OR.

Oh, I fit in the over 40.

Hello and welcome to the Horseforum.

30 years! You'll be surprised how quickly it all comes back to you. Congratulations on making the decision of getting back in the saddle. Nothing quite like it, ever. :)

Hi

Hello,

Dusty is here. I took pictures, but I guess the resolution is too high.
They won't load.

It was nice to hear form someone close by.

What kind of riding do you do?

Thanks

Welcome!
I am also in the over 40 club and also just got back into horses after nearly 25 years away from them.
We have been back into horses for a few years now and can not imagine ever being without them again.
I know you will really enjoy your horses and I am happy for you.
Welcome to the forum.

Our farm is home to 4 adopted draft horses
Please consider adopting and give a horse back it's life.
