Just noticed this sticky - d'uh! I'm Amanda, live in beautiful Buckinghamshire, mum of 2 kids aged 3 and 1, and new horse owner. I was a pony-mad teen but didn't ride during my 20s as was living in London and building up a career. Started again in my 30s, with breaks to have babies, and now at the grand old age of 37 I have FINALLY realised the dream I've had since I was 10 and have my own horse, Poppy, a beautiful 10-year old 15.1 black Irish cob. It's pretty hectic juggling motherhood, work and horse ownership, but it's a good sort of hectic. Still getting used to having a horse - turns out riding once or twice a week doesn't prepare you for ANYTHING - but have a supportive yard and husband so count myself very lucky indeed!
