Hi everyone. We are a great group with a common history. Its great to hear all of the stories! I took lessons for 10 years and taught riding at camp as a young person. As a city girl I did not have many options. So as an adult (before kids) I was limited to the occasional trail ride. But, I was always on the lookout for a chance to ride. On my honeymoon in Mexico, I went riding on the beach every day(alone, foolishly). On day I went off the resort property (again, foolishly) and was attacked. A man was calling for help and as I approached he tried to pull me off. Let me tell you if it weren't for that sweet, wonderful horse whisking me away like the wind.... To this day he is the most beautiful horse I have ever been on!
But my fondest memory is running full speed down a hillside in Ireland. I have family in Ireland who are in horses (they've raced at Ascot!!) so it's always fun to go there.
Anyway I can't wait to hear everyone else's stories!
