    It seems like there are a lot of us here. Would love to see some pics of y'all with your horses and learn more about what you do with your horses. This is my horse. She is an OTTB and we just general purpose ride for fun.

    Also, I'd love to know how you all fit riding into your exercise (I count mine as play) and what your favorite weight training exercises are to help with your riding. I need to strengthen my core to ride so do a lot of planks.

    I have two horses, a Belgian and a paint x Percheron. I was a pro harness groom for many years, ran a big lay up and brood farm, can trim and shoe and all kinds of handy stuff.

    Connie- your attachments are pending as well. Elaine- your horses are gorgeous. I wish I could trim and shoe. LOL, I'm jealous of my horse's $80 a month shoe habit.

    I'm currently between horses, but I started volunteering at a theraputic riding barn on their schooling team. I was hoping to shovel stalls and groom horses for class, but they're letting me actually work with the horses! I even got to break a ranch horse to ground-driving. The lady working with me insisted that I wouldn't be given a horse that didn't know how to drive. Pshaw. I know that bug-eyed "You are not supposed to be behind me!" look very well. Worked through it with several horses before this one!

    Their horses have weight limits, so I'm limited to the biggest two. Gee, darn- a 15.2h draft cross that was showing Level 1 dressage in her last life and Levi. *swoony sigh* Big. Sweet. Dressage training. Now I just have to get over the fact that the second-to-last horse I injured myself coming off of was a draft cross.

    I have an AQHA mare coming in May (or June-we're still trying to get shipping figured out). I plan to do some shows and a lot of trail riding.

    Lately I've been doing more weight lifting exercises but I really need to work on my core. I count horse-back riding as exercise

    (I'm also using a thighmaster from the 80s, LOL I have no idea if it will help my seat but.... )

    I had a book- but I lost it- that was exercises for the rider. It had what to do and what it was used for. I think I lost it because I liked to lend it out- it was good!

    Elaine- They're beautiful! Perch cross is my favorite draft cross. She looks a lot like the smaller draft cross I might be riding- just a slightly different paint palette

    I really miss my horses - have had hacks, dressage, harness, bred Arabians an Welsh ponies, but it all stopped in the late 1990s when Mum & I could no longer manage the farm financially. I used to show (we went to Sydney Royal easter show every year from 1960 to 1984) and judge ponies, Arabians, Palominos and hack & riding classes and I use to judge the lower levels of dressage.
