Hi. My name’s Roberta and for most of my life, I’ve wanted to be able to ride a horse. There were times when I’d give it a shot, but didn’t invest the time and effort necessary to learn to walk, trot and canter competently. Often, life and family matters intervened and the riding ambition had to be set aside.
After several false starts, I was terribly frustrated and figured I must simply be a horse dork. I just couldn’t get it… until April 2010 when I got amazingly lucky, found a wonderful trainer and patient lesson horse who guided me out of my fear and taught me more than I dreamed I could do.
This blog contains posts about some of the significant milestones on my journey to finally becoming a horse owner. The road I took to get here is probably very different from the one you’ve taken, and we’re most likely very different people. But now I’ve realized that a mutual love of horses can bring together people of all ages and backgrounds. You’re never too young or too old to start. If you want to ride, find the right trainer, and just do it!
