Is the thread still around and I am missing it? Otherwise would like to start off once again.
Endless novice in northern NJ looking to trail ride a few times a week. I have back problems so need eventempered smooth gaited horse.
Searched madly to find partial lease on gaited horse but not only didn't find one, money issues may crop up. I'll know more in a few weeks.
The shorter the drive from Newark NJ area the better off I am. Driving harder on me that riding.
Horseless rider in Southern Ontario, east of Toronto. Have ridden for almost 16 years, evented, some h/j school shows, lots of trails. Looking for something to putter around on, do trails, some ring work - low jumps would be nice too!

Life is waiting for you, it's all messed up but we'll survive
Horseless in Alberta, Canada ( Calgary area). Mainly western but have done some limited english. Was a trail ride guide for 2 seasons in the rockies and ridden for 8 years or so but nothing since october.
Will be horseless rider & barnless soul in Northern Baltimore County for June and July. (I am going home on vacation and will be leaving my horse here.)
Have been riding jumpers now for 3 years, but before that mostly hunters. I really love flat work also.
Would love to do any riding/helping out this summer. More than willing to labor for riding privledges.

I've got 2 ponies on my farm that would love riders. I am too busy with work, young baby and another horse going. One is a 13.2 black Morganx that is absolutely adorable and athletic and can easily carry an adult up to about 5'4 or 5'5". Super fun dressage/event type pony. The other is a 12h leadline/short stirrup pony, most precious thing you've ever seen. She'd be happy to just have a kid come groom and love on her. I'm in Lovettsville, VA.
I have lots of horses, and for the right person, there is riding opportunity. The rider would need to contribute though, a combination of partial board contribution and help with farm stuff, but I go to lots of shows, clinics, trail rides and various other things and generally welcome everyone to come along.
What I am not interested in is the person who wants the free pony-ride 2x a week, wants to be the princess who is handed a tacked up horse, doesn't clean up after herself or the horse, and whines that it is a 45 minute drive from her slice of suburbia. I do help with choosing the most appropriate horse from them.
15 year old TB mare, jumps well, decent dressage to 1st level, adores XC.
10 year old QH/App who adores dressage, currently schooling third level, planning on showing 2nd later this year.
5 year old TB mare, OTTB, CANTER mare, probably a hunter type pony, she is a nice ride, not difficult and a snuggle pony.
These are not untrained horses, they get ridden and worked and I still ride & work them.
Horseless rider in pittsburgh, pa. I've been lucky enough to have a horse to ride over the winter, but looks like he's getting sold and I will be back on lesson horses again. I've been riding hunter/jumper for about 9/10 years now and would love any opportunity to ride. I'm willing to help out around the barn or what not. A free lease (I would pay board, vet, etc) would be awesome, but again I'll ride anything. Can provide references and riding history if you're interested.
horseless rider. northern NJ
Suz, yes indeed, I'm on nj-horse boards. I had a bunch of major economic issues pop up, along with some medical issues. I posted about a horse lease there last week and 24 hours later had to pull the post. Am going to re-post as I think I can manage at lease a low-cost lease. Too bad there a zillion of them if I could drive 2 hours, which I cannot. sigh. whine.
Look for me there, if you post as well!
jrrider I'm also in Pittsburgh as just sent my horse back to CA so I will be horseless in the fall. But boy do I have a barn for you to run clear away from, I was a horseless college kid they were willing to let me help out around the barn for lesson and then board when I got a horse, yea after two months I was expected to run a 22 stall barn with no heat by my self for 40 bucks a day or what ended up being about 3 dollars an hour. And I was a bad person and not a team player when I told them that was just no fair because, if she paid me more than the BO could not make the improvements she wanted to the barn. anywhoo pm me if you want the name of the crazy ladies
