I came to this forum to learn as much as I can before I step into the horse world. I have been on a weightloss journey for several months and as soon as I'm down to a comfortable weight I will seek riding lessons then go from there.
I have very little experience with horses, but I have wanted one since I was a child. I'm about to be 30 and decided I finally want to pursue my dreams. My goal is to hopefully connect with a horse while I'm taking lessons and possibly lease the horse so I can make sure I truly want the responsibilities that come with full ownership.
Riding was one of my weight loss goals. I lost over 100 pounds before I started riding - I always wanted to try it, but I didn't think I could or should. It's been one of the very best things I've done for myself! I hope you enjoy it!
