Brand New Here

Good morning,

My name is Lacey and I've be rebitten by the horse bug!

I haven't ridden horses in over 20 years, but now my kids are grown and I find myself feeling like a little girl who wants a pony all over again. Although at 5'9" I'll fit much better on a horse!!!

I was blessed by a friend the other night to take a few laps around her ring on a gorgeous western pleasure gelding ... I was amazed by my ability to not only NOT fall off, but to actually remember what I was supposed to do up there! Now I will admit to being a bit sore, but in the best way possible!!!

I am currently reading The Smart Woman's Guide to Midlife Horses and possibly spending too much time on the internet while I'm supposed to be working googling all things "horsey".

Thanks for letting me introduce myself and I look forward to this forum.

Welcome to the forum!

You'll find there are a lot of us older riders here, and quite a few just getting back into riding after time off.

Looking forward to reading more posts from you, and pictures! We love pictures here
