This is the COTH thread where I found the opportunity. I can't believe it was only last January.
Horseless Riders and Riderless Horses thread FTW!
Seriously, if you can WTC even halfway decently, there are so many opportunities to ride for free that I would have never known about if I hadn't done some emailing around. Rescues, therapeutic riding centers, timid/busy horse owners, exchanging barn chores for rides...I have found free riding opportunities with all of these situations, and all have gone a long way toward furthering my riding ability.
It's definitely going to be interesting to see how things go now that I will have my "own" horse again. That hasn't been the case since high school. Anyway...I guess you'll all come along on the ride with me!
