- Hello everybody-Cyneswith here.
Collette recently approached me to join the EQ group
and I am very happy and excited to do so. I was
fortunate enough to take some riding lessons from
Collette a few years back and found her to be a
wonderful instructor and a sincerely nice person.
I know quite a few of the other names on this list
already, but look forward to meeting the rest of you
soon (or I might already know you and just not
recognize your name-I'm really bad aobut
I have some previous experience with horses, but most
of it is from my childhood, which is longer ago than I
care to admit. I spent a lot of summers on my
Grandpa's spread in Minnesota riding my aunt's Quarter
Horses and Arabians. I learned basic Western-style
riding from her. I also spent some time riding in Utah
when I lived there as a pre-teen where I traded some
riding time at the local stable for my manual labor
(schlepping out stalls-eewww). I am excited about
reawakening those old memories by returning to my old
sport with my new friends.
With Collette's permission, I've also asked (my guy)
Sir Thorfinn to join me in this endeavor. Thorfinn's
horse experience is pretty far in his past too. When
he was a child he actually had his own horse, but he
hasn't done any riding in recent years to my
OK, now I need a small favor. I accidently deleted one
EQ post - I think it was from a gentleman named Justin
(though I could be mistaken)about a riding center in
South San Jose where he was taking classes??? I would
like to look into signing myself and Thorfinn up for
some lessons there, but need the contact info again.
Thanks heaps. See you all soon.

I'm Evaine ni MacGreger, I currently live in San Jose and play with Bella
Luna Caravan. I moved here from the East (Glenn Linn) and prior to that was
in Atlantia. I've been in the SCA for about 14 years. In the East I was
responsible for autocratting events with Equestrian games in them, and it
was a blast - it was also something that was pretty much expected at Kingdom
level events - I'd love to see that happen here.
I've been riding horses since I was about 4 - seriously since I was about
13. I was trained on an English saddle, though as a non-horse-owner, I've
learned to ride Western over the years.
