I have always loved horses and spent time learning horse vaulting when I was younger living in California. We moved to Vermont, and I didn't have access to horses. Then I met my husband and his mother has 8 arabs, and she asks me to go riding with her all the time and I just love it. So I don't actually own a horse, but I help her with hers and I ride a 7 year old named Hameed. He is a bay and is just as sweet as pie. It's been so long since I've done anything with horses that I had to learn how to do it all over again, like putting on the saddle/bridle and all the horse terms. Sounds pathetic, but I JUST LEARNED how to tie a quick release knot! Sad huh?
I had a fall a few weeks ago (the horse slipped on a muddy rock and down we both went) but we're both okay now and went riding again last Saturday. I didn't let the fall bother me one bit. We're going again in two weeks on a benefit ride and can't wait.
Glad to be part of the community and hope to become friends with a lot of you.
