I was about 12 when I got my first horse, an appaloosa mare. Later I bought a 4 1/2 year old quarter horse gelding, which was a great horse, I'll never forget. I enjoyed so much riding horses with my dad. He had an appaloosa leopard stallion, and he also took me to horse shows, riding clinics, etc. We always had a good time. After getting married and having kids, I now finally got another horse, after over 30 years away, never forgetting them. He is also a quarter horse gelding. I thought I would just get on him and take off where I left off. I hadn't thought what 30+ years away would do to me! I'm thankful to have another chance with horses again.
