I've been riding consistently about three years, Hunter/Jumper with a little Western background before that. Started volunteering at a therapeutic barn to get a bit more knowledge of horses about a year ago and I love it! It's nice to be there too because 1) I've gotten to work with a variety of horses from crazy pissheads to golden guys who are eager to please and 2) It's been very gratifying knowing that the work I'm doing at the stables is really affecting the horses vs. at my barn we tack up, ride, and untack and I never get to do chores/groundwork!
My goals for my horse future are to join up and form a real bond with a horse, lease or buy my own horse, train a foal, ride bridleless and saddleless, and learn massage/acupressure for horses.
