Hello, from Canada
You may call me Ateaz. I took the name after a famous Scythian chiefton. They were nomads who mastered horse riding. I am not new to riding horses, however, I need to relearn a lot after a long time of not riding. I've gained a few work-related injuries and concussions, so it's like starting over again.
I'll be doing what I was familiar with, which is riding using only a shabraque and the reigns. I may go on to learn to use a Scythian or Roman-style saddle later on. I'll be riding a horse for regular transportation, hunting, and potentially some mounted martial arts.
Anyways, I guess I'm here because, despite being a once experienced rider, I'll be asking for advice due to the nature of my injuries. I know there are lots of experienced people here, so I'd like to gain some of your insight.
