Default Horse lovers?

I love horses, and was wondering if anyone else does too!

I ride english, and take lessons once a week, but unfortunately don't own my own horse

I love to jump.

I do love horses very very much!

I don't have one.. or ride much.. or take lessons.. There just isn't much of an option for either around here..
But some day I will have one.. oh yes! I will !

I've been around horses since I was 5. I've got my own QH, he's a big lug, LOL.

I don't take lessons anymore (I should though LOL), I teach 2 lessons a week to people who have bought horses from me.

I take it you ride hunter/jumper?

Yeah. I don't compete in big shows yet, only in the school shows my barn hosts.

You're so lucky you own a horse!

Squidbert, I'm going to make sure I have one someday too!

My aunt owns five in Arizona, I just actually got back from visiting her! Riding western for a week was interesting, considering I was the only one with my heels down while riding

Another horse person here. I did hunter/jumpers throughout high school, and into college until I got Tristan, my Hanoverian. As a youngster, he jumped about as well as my truck, so I gave up and started doing dressage with him. Now, I'm hooked on the dressage, and he's learned to jump like a star. Go figure. Here he is looking like his usual beautiful self - he's currently a few months into a suspensory rehab, and those hard-earned muscles have evaporated

A few more weeks of handwalking and more vet bills, and I may let you have him!

BostonBaker, what a lovely boy! What level of dressage were you at?

I've been around horses for nearly 40 years (and owned them for almost 35) and have been told I've been horse-crazy since around the age of three.
I lost my old Morgan, Rocket J. Squirrel, three years ago, after 23 years (used to event, compete in lower level dressage and drive him) and now I have a rescue. He's a Morgan, too, his name is Chance and he's a bay gelding with one white sock and a star. Probably won't do more than trail ride with him, once I get him rideable.
This was Rocket:


This was Chance when he first arrived, mid-March:
