Experience with Horses

I have been around horses since I was a little girl. I had riding lessons when I could, when I was 10 I started wanting to ride more often, when I was 11 I got to help out with my dads friends horse she was very old and didn’t have a tail, this meant that I would have to clean her bum every day, I think this was my dads way of testing how committed I was and whether I would stick it out…. I did.  when I was 13 I was lucky enough to find a horse of my own. Even though he wasn’t that suitable, he wasn’t schooled was young and had no experience, its safe to say that there have been tears along the way and lots of hard work, but I can safely say that I am proud of what we have accomplished together from running through cross poles to jumping 1’20 easy. I’ve also attended pony club and my local riding club also receiving my pony club C+ test. I also took GCSE PE in witch I specialised in horse riding where I revived a A grade.  I have looked after other peoples horses when they have been on holiday as well as exercising other horses for them. I’ve had a lot of experience riding other peoples horses. but I’m a quick learner and keen to learn more.

• Is there anything you’d like to improve?

I would love to improve my skills further from someone more experienced, I pick things up quite quickly and would love to improve my riding further.
