HorseLover13 (my first riding experience)

by Tayla


Hi all! My first ever experience with horses was when my second cousin invited me to come to her house for a ride ( because I had never actually been to her house before). I rode her 12 year old son's horse Bomber. He is a gorgeous red chestnut 13hh pony. He was fourteen years of age and is sooooo well behaved.

It was my first ever experience (like I said) so I was really nervous! But I LOVED it! I was so happy when we got off. I absolutely LOVED it my mum was riding my cousins 15hh bay horse but she wasn't so keen but she was happy that I liked it.

Now I attend the local horse riding club and I have made so many friends! One of my friends in particular, she has a horse of her own but is very generous with him. He is a 15hh palomino quarter horse. He is twenty two years of age and is very VERY lazy!

He is the best beginners horse and he has given me the confidence to go riding on my own. So that's my story :) I hope you enjoyed reading this! :)

Western
by: Macy

I ride Wesern, sometimes I feel you can be more free with your horse in western than you can English. But that is my opinion and I have never tried English. Plus do what you enjoy the most. So my advice would be western but please do what you think is best. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ΄

juming or rodeo? quarter horses?
by: WildWhisper

i jump a Quarter Horse, Bizmark. Quarter horses aren't great jumpers since they quite heavily built so bit difficult for them to jump and very very very few would be able to jump high... and why not do both rodeo and jumping? and believe me i am a beginner but i am jumping 1 meter already :) started riding a year and a half ago, jumped for the first time by 2 months. cantered on my 3rd lesson :) you will get there in time just don't give up horse riding is HAAAARD work!! as for the whether you should do jumping or rodeo, why not both? i do jumping, dressage, and i ride western. also do some longer distance riding. By the Way my story is also on here :) With a pic of Bizmark, he would be the palomino :)

Not Sure, Try Both (Haven)
by: HorseLover13

Hi Haven, I'm not really that sure because I am still a beginner and I can even trot yet :/ so yea but I think jumping would be way more fun in my opinion but I would love to give both a try when I gain the confidence. :)

English or Western?
by: Haven

Do you think I should do do jumping, or rodeo? I can't decide. My dad thinks Rodeo, but my mom thinks jumping. And can someone tell me if quarter horses are good jumpers for beginners? Thx, haven.
