Thanks! I ride about 4 times a week but know that Im on summer break, I can ride more often. And yes I am very lucky that I can ride for free! Here is the story I got to ride for free. I started riding there a long time ago and took lessons from the owner of the ranch and we spent alot of time together. Then she let me lease one of her other horses, Sugar for really cheap (only $75 a month). Then she sold Sugar to another girl at the ranch. (she still stayed at the ranch). The new owner let me lease her still but she rode at the same time I wanted to so the hours didnt work out. So I stopped leasing her. Later I ran into the ranch owner in the library and she offered for me to ride Cowboy for free! And its so cool cause she hardly lets anyone ride Cowboy cause he is her BABY and she only let me cause she has seen me ride and she knows how I ride. All the other adults wonder why they cant ride and the owner says that they jerk too hard on the reins.
