Red face Hi there!

Hi there! My name is Mia, I own one horse who's name is, Spencer. I am 18 years old and I am currently studying to take my test to become a certified riding instructor. I live in California. I have been riding for 9 years now. For the first 4 years, I rode western, now I am strictly a hunter/jumper. Nothing against western, just wasn't my thing haha. I've had Spencer for 2 1/2 years. My birthday is our 3rd anniversary together. He was actually a birthday present to me, from me. I paid for him with my own money! I got him when he was 7, he just turned 10 this March (what a big boy)! Spencer is sadly taking a break from jumping as for he has had farrier issues in the past. I say farrier issues because they were shoeing him incorrectly for 10 years. His feet are looking much better now (yay for Spence)!

Well, that's basically all about me! And my horse haha! If you have any questions just ask. I would love to get to know you all so post a short biography about you and your horse(s) just like I did!

Happy riding everyone!!!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you should compare yourself with is you

Hi! I ride both English and Western on my Quarter Horse, I drive a mini, and do dressage with a surcingle and long reins with another mini!

If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort, you will not get either comfort or truth; only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair. -C.S. Lewis
