I'm a new member from Washington State. I've been taking lessons and riding friends' horses for about a year now. I just bought a Wintec saddle yesterday, and am still SUPER excited about it. I've been riding English (friends' horses) and Western (lessons) but will probably be doing more English now too. I think I might like to get into competitive trail riding or endurance type stuff eventually, but for now I'm just working on my own basic riding skills and learning how to do things right.
