  • I did, until I got pregnant.

    Western and Saddle Seat. (I ride Tennessee Walking Horses, and NO I do NOT put them on those cruel shoes...I want to murder everyone who does that...)
    I also barrel race.

  • I've ridden since I was 5. I have ridden or taken a lesson in almost every discipline at least once, lol.
    Right now I'm just a western trail rider. Up until I got pregnant a few months ago I rode bareback all the time, esp because the horse I was training has rodeo bloodlines of saddle broncs, and when he was younger they used him for about a year. So anytime he had a saddle he would buck a WHOLE lot more than if I rode him bareback. I initially found this out on a dare to ride him bareback after I'd been working with him for about 2 months with gaining little ground. In 6 months of bareback work he went from saddle bronc to intermediate horse.

    I want to get back into SaddleSeat after the baby, but I'm going to miss my FL trainer now that I'm in Kansas.

  • I showed Hunters & Eq. before I got pregnant. Now I only get to ride every once in awhile...usually on a day someone's at the barn to watch the baby for me. Want to get back to showing again at some point....maybe once DS starts preschool.
