Journey is going to be started slow...walk, trot, walk trot. If you are starting a new horse (or an old horse) slowly I'd be interested in riding together over the fall and winter months. I just need to make it plain, I have no interest in riding fast. NONE, NADA, ZIP, ZERO. If it can't be done on a loose rein on a relaxed horse I'm not doing it. That said, if you want to finish some slow rides this season, I'm looking for a training partner. It's safer than solo training, and less tedious to pass the time with a like-minded person with similar goals. So! If you want to hook up for rides of 10 miles, then 15 miles, inching up to 25 miles, I'd love to hear from you. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org but please put a comment on this post so I know to check my spam folder so nobody gets lost! If you are already in my address book you can skip that part. (fair warning...I don't talk much, but I'm a good listener, and I smile a lot).
