    My name is Chris and I'm from the Naperville/Plainfield area. While I've always loved horses I've only recently wanted to get involved more with them. My interest really kicked up after our first Dude Ranch experience which we now have returned to several times a year for the past 3 years. I would like to eventually own a horse but I'd say thats at least a year or so off.

    In the meantime I'd like to get more involved with horses and get more training in everything from care, tacking, and riding. I'd additionally like to volunteer at a stable or some sort, my schedule as a firefighter/paramedic provides ample opportunity, to stay busy over the summer and help learn more about horses, care, etc. The problem, this is where I hope someone here can provide some direction, is I can't find many programs offering Adult Western lessons.

    Thanks and hope to som
