Haha, I know some people who have horses and have actually handeled them, done the grooming when they needed me to ect, but I haven't riden them. I have a neighbor who has horses, and rides them western, but quite frankly, my property and theirs combined till thier driveway, is about a 20 acres and I don't have thier phone number. I wouldn't drive up there just to ask about that either. Maybe next time if they don't decide to sell off the horses.
Then there's always a friend but I don't have her number either and she lives maybe 20-23 miles away from me and has actually offered to let me ride her I forget the breed, but her 16.3hh very light grey gelding, Austin. It would be english but, I'd probaly in some ways prefer that better, but I'd actually like to barrel race, And you can't exactly do that in an english saddle. She has also offered to give me severely reduced lessons, for ten dollars a lesson, one lesson a week.
