Jumping back in!

Hi, all!

I made a decision recently to get involved with horses again.

Its been years since I've owned or even ridden!

This post really has no point other than to express my excitement for this new chapter.

Wish me luck!!

Good luck! I know that excitement well since I started back last summer after taking 8 years off to start a family. Have a great ride!

Welcome and good luck. It took me a long while to talk myself into getting back into horses. That was nine years ago and now I can't imagine being without them. I remember the feeling, I'm excited for you.

There will be only one of you for all time. Fearlessly be yourself.

Yay! Glad you found your way back tot he horse world. Good luck!

I'm almost 5 years back into horses after about a 10 year break. I'm really glad I took a few refresher lessons to "bring it all back" since my body doesn't move quite like it did the first go-round, lol.

You'll be amazed how deeply ingrained your muscle memory will be if you rode regularly some time ago. I just took a woman on a trail ride who hadn't ridden for over ten years. Halfway through the ride, she easily packed her camera away into her fanny pack while the horse was trotting, and by the end of the ride, I took her on a full gallop. Take a few lessons, then hit the trails (with a guide or instructor) - it's the best way to regain balance and confidence. You'll be owning three horses by the time summer is over, I'm sure! :)
