I'm new here. I just wanted to say howdy! I read a thread, and I am seeing what an awesome forum this is!
I grew up riding Western Pleasure/Trail (not competivly). When I was young my parents and my sister and me would go camping in the mountains and ride trails! Great memories! I quit riding because of the fact that I took having access to horses for granted! There were other (personal) reasons as well! I've been away from riding for about 15 years! I'm hoping to get back into riding and possibly learn some English riding as well as improve my Western riding!
A little advice, from someone who's been there, don't take life for granted; live life to the fullest!

Welcome! Glad you found us! The few times we rode together as a family it was on the beach. I agree great memories.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

Welcome! That sounds awesome. Hope you have a great time.

Do you give the horse its strength or clothe its neck with a flowing mane? Job 39:19

I'm excited to hear of your future, as well as past, horse endeavors!

Learning new disciplines can be frustrating at time but it's mostly quite fun! I wish you luck in your pursuits!
