I do! Been riding for about 20 years! Here is me and my girl Amber, she's a 9 year old percheron/thoroughbred cross!


One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

I miss riding so much! I had been in a couple of shows, and though I only ever got third place, I knew I was hooked. I had to stop after my mom lost her job and everything went to ...well, hell. We're still playing catch up and most of my money goes to bills and my school loans. Someday I hope to take up riding again!

Your horse is gorgeous by the way, MoonShadow!

Oh! Oh! Me! xD I rode for a few years when I was younger, though similar to Saber my family ran into some money troubles and I sadly had to give up riding and my amazing best friend, a Buckskin Morab Mare named Topaz. I think she should be around eighteen or so now, and currently she lives in a beautiful ranch in Oregon where she now does Trail riding, some jumping, and a touch of Dressage from what I hear, though together we rode and showed Hunter/Jumper.
Manage to dig up a couple old pictures of us even!

All of your horses are beautiful! I miss riding so much, I haven't been on horseback since I was ten, five years ago. I got into an accident and nearly broke six bones on the left side of my body, but luckily they were only severely bruised... Anywho, the guy who ran my lessons closed down after my accident and never reopened, and we've never found anywhere else near me :/ But someday I will take it up again!
