Finally after 1 1/2 years of not riding because of mare pregnancy, my fear, etc. I have hired a 20 year old to try them out first and then work with me and the mares. THEY AND I ARE DOING GREAT! She is an awesome teacher. Has me try things but if I say I'm not ready, doesn't rush. Calm with me and horses, but the leader. Suggestions for EVERY concern I have. I love her. And I feel soooo good about getting more confident. I am soo happy. I know this is not reproduction but it is after baby and I've developed such a rapport with so many of you I wanted you to know my progress.

Kay, that is fantastic!!! I'm so happy for you. I haven't had a rideable horse either; now have a rideable horse that I will, with luck, be riding this coming week. In my case, I'm taking a riding class. I see all the other students riding and can hardely wait! It's been years for me.
I'm really happy for you Kay. Your love of riding and being back in the saddle came through loud and clear! And congrats on finding an awesome teacher!
Great news Kay, I know exactly how you feel. I haven't riden in quite some time and I have the same reservations. The other day I rode and had a blast, sore now, but what fun!
I'm very happy for you Kay! Now keep it up and enjoy!!
