Loving this thread

I got my first pony when I was 8 and have had 3 horses of my own and 2 loaners since then. I currently loan a 100% purebred Oldenburg (is that the word?). Big black horsie which is gentle as a lamb, but sometimes can act a bit silly even though he's turning 21 this month.
I'm a dressage rider, have always done dressage and do compete when I have the chance. I do enjoy a bit of jumping as well, but mostly to shake up the daily training a bit. Hopefully in a few years I will be able to get a horse of my own again. I have a goal of getting to ride some of the higher levels within dressage (Have no idea what they're called in english), so hopefully I will achieve that one day.
