I've been taking riding lessons from time to time for about a year....I used to take Aikido, but for some reason, horses are much more fun....in my opinion and experience....Do you guys ride or own your own? :horsepoo:

I have been riding since I was a baby. No, seriously. The first picture of me on a horse is me at 6 months, held by my mom. Since then I've ridden, trained, and done a bit of showing. The last year or so, do to the requirements of work, school and writing, and needing to recover from some debillitating injuries, I haven't ridden much, but I will get back into it as soon as I can have two of my horses shipped to NC.

Do you ride Western or English?

That is hilarious! :smt081

Mornara, I take lessons, and so far I have only sat on the western saddle maybe twice....I took Hunter/Jumper lessons for a month, and just started up with English. But really, I'm not training to show or anything, I just want to be able to find that ease while on the animal. I absolutely LOVE to canter! And galloping, though I've only done it one time, full speed down a trail, was the most exhilarating elating most dangerous thing I've ever done!:smt017 I loved it!:smt005

May I ask, what kind/color are your two horses? Do you have them boarded somewhere? I bet that is expensive! Can you post pictures?
Well, I hope you are able to be reunited with them, as well as have a speedy recovery from your inguries.

I actually have 6 horses currently, down from the 10 I had about two years ago. Unfortunately, I originally rode western, so I had a bunch of Quarter Horses. Two of the mares, REALLY good stock at that, were poisoned by a neighbor during one of the eternal disputes my grandmother gets into.

Anyways, the two I am bringing to NC are both bay geldings. One is a retired harness racer, a big rangy sweethearted prankster. He's an awesome horse, wonderful jumper, but he has bad knees. So we are looking at having him used as a therapy horse at a camp for chronically ill children, and getting my mom a new horse.

The other is my own, heart, soul and body. I got him when he was 4 months old, a hellion of a stud colt. Couldn't catch, lead, touch or look at the beast. I trained him completely, reining, saddling, and everything else he needed, and now need to finish him. He's half Arab, half Morgan, a smart assed, beautiful little guy that can jump anything.

I'll post pics if I can, don't have many of the boys. I'll get some once we move them though!
