I learned to ride at 40 and have been riding 13 years now. We don't own our own horses, just ride what we call the "schoolies". But my husband also rides and we have taken two vacations on horseback, one a 6 day trek on the west coast of Ireland, and the other was a 5 day out of a castle in Tuscany, Italy. Hubby wants to ride in the Black Forest in Germany next. We both have competed on very low levels, just schooling shows, and both jump but we are looking now to just finding a barn that will allow trail riding. I'm getting much too old to be falling off at the jumps. Hubby too, he's 59!!
Wish I had a pic I could post for you.

!!!! Love love love horses! I rode for 13 years until i had my first child. I was in 4H horses, I rode performance (English, jumping, western, trail, gaming) on a AQHA mare that I adored. With that same mare i barrel raced and also won rodeo queen titles:
2006 Silver Spurs Saddle club Queen
2007 Miss Kitsap Fair& Stampede
2008 Miss Teen Rodeo WA

I miss riding SO much, it was the only stable part of my life ;)

I have a horse, but I never get to see her. She's a gorgeous dark bay Arabian/Quarter horse mare named Tango, about 6 years old and the sweetest thing. We board her with my cousins in Oregon (we live in California :c ), since we don't have any property and the closest equestrian center is about three hours away. We just figure that if she's going to be that far away from us anyways, we might as well leave her with someone we know and trust.
She's not really a riding horse, but she won't object to someone getting on her bareback every once in a while (she hates saddles, though!). She's a bit stubborn, though - she'll just trot for a bit in a circle and then when she gets bored, she just stands there and glares at you over her shoulder till you get the heck off of her back and leave her alone.
I love her, though. I'll see if I can get a picture.

My mom has a small horse rescue. I like horses, I think they're nice animals and all, but I'm not real comfortable riding just yet. It just feels weird... that and my short stature makes it difficult for me to get on a saddle.

This is my horse jumping low. Not me though. This was her sale picture almost 2 years ago. I do mostly dressage with her now. Her name is Ring My Bell
