Learning to ride horses

Recommended Posts

Ever since I was little I have wanted to ride horses. My folks were always afraid to let me. I found a wonderful trainer that is willing to work with me and I have been riding for a month now. I went on my first trail ride yesterday into the vast wilderness. Horse sure do act differently when there are no fences around. It was gorgeous and for the first time I was really free. I went places that I have never been before.

My horse was a throw-away. After years on the show circuit and been a brood-mare, her owners didn't have use for her anymore. She was bred hard every single year--she throws wonderful sweet-natured babies, and that's why they bred her so much.

Then they had no use for her so they GAVE her to me. That's when I realised that I better figure out how to ride. We are a perfect match, she is real patient with me, and I just love her. I think we have alot in common. This is one of the happiest times in my life. Thanks for letting me share. -sw :)
