Hey yall - I'm new

I just recently started riding again after about 15 years of not touching a horse. I'm almost 30, and no joke - back when I was 15, they were a lot smaller than they are now ;)

We recently added a 9 year old QH to our farm - she's very stout, solid, muscular, beautiful, 15.5hh, she's a big girl. She's wonderfully gentle and has an amazing stride to her. She doesn't neck rein, and hates the split bit ... but those are easy enough to get around.

Anywhoo - I'm a plus-size rider. I'm just under 5'10" and a size 18 ... in the process of losing the weight, want to be back in a size 12, but who knows how long it will take. I won't be riding her much anyway, it's my stepdaughters horse. But I wanted to find a few friends in this forum just to horse-chat with so I can refresh myself of everything that time has erased since I haven't been around horses in so long.

So, hey yall :)

Welcome! You will find just about everything on here, this forum is priceless when it comes to info/advice/conversation/entertainment. Most people are really nice, some are a little too honest, and everyone has their own opinion, but that is what makes it great!

Horse pictures, please! We love horse pictures!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
