I joined COTH a couple of years ago but literally posted once, I think. I had an Arab and a QH pony then. I still have the Arab and have since sold the pony ( ) to a great family, acquired a young QH that didn't suit me, and traded him for a 7yo TBx mare named Tuesday. She is my little dressage prospect and I am enjoying her immensely. The hunter jumper barn I was at for nearly eight years sold this spring, and I am now at a dressage/eventing barn and finally at the age of 25 learning how to RIDE. It was a huge epiphany that riding is not merely staying on the horse and coping. Or maybe the epiphany is that that was what I have been doing. So I am trying to reinvent myself as a rider. There are a few things I am having a hard time overcoming, such as a bad right shoulder which causes a lot of crookedness, haha. The Arab is my best buddy and due to my last barn going out of business, he is retired from being a schoolie...which is great, because he appears to have found a new lease on life and has turned into a hoodlum. He is a dork.
