Happy Updates *I'm back!*

Hey everyone!

Okay so you probably don't recognize my new username. Well, that's because I had to make a new account—certain people I know in real life found me on here and on youtube were bothering me and I don't particularly want them seeing all my posts anymore. I'm going to put my old username here with stars in between so nobody can search for it:

ANYWAY. The point is that I'm back and will be posting again. I got pretty busy and had to take a break for a bit. But now I need your help.

My parents finally finally finally said I could have a horse! ... IF the numbers work out. Essentially, I have to find a person to half-lease my horse (so we can afford the board, vet, and farrier fees more easily). I'm currently in the process of finding a person; that's not why I need your help.

This will be my first horse. I've been riding for a little over 9 years, but when it comes to owning a horse there's a lot I don't know. If I can find a trustworthy half-leaser for my horse, I will need your advice on a lot of things!

For those of you who don't remember me, this probably won't be very exciting to you. But for those of you who DO remember me, or those of you who are excited anyway, I would love to have your support and encouragement! I am VERY excited but I want to do everything right. So this is me, reaching out to you, and sharing THE MOST EXCITING NEWS EVER with you!!

OMG! thats exciting! I remember when I got Trooper it took nearly a week for it to sink in. Like I never thought I would get my own horse!

If you are unsure how to take care of your horse a half lease is great. For the first few months I kept Trooper at the original owners barn (she only live about 8or10 min. away). That's how I learnt how to take care of a horse, that and lots of volunteering.

Also read evey horse care book you can, they're great. Also if you find a vetrinary referance book, there great for looking up symtoms when your unsure, they're good for telling you what action is necesary. The making an emergency first aid kit. Would be a great thread for you.

Good luck, and enjoy!

Ooh thank you for the tips! Just to clarify any confusion, I meant I need to find somebody to half-lease the horse that I buy. If I can't find somebody to half-lease my horse, I won't be able to afford the board fee. :(

Ive never done leasing. but its sounds like a half lease would be really good if you found the right person. Like somebody with alot of experience, or atleast somebody sencible, who wont be really hard on the horse etc.

I know what you mean about board being expensive we built a small paddock and shelter for my horse at my house, because boarding was just not in the budget. Although my house isnt ideal (barley any place to ride). Its better than no horse at all! :)

Hey welcome back! I rememeber you. Sorry that happened that sucks. I can't really help you I don't have enough money for a horse of my own either.

somewhere behind the rider you've become the hours of practice you've put in & the coaches that have pushed you is the little girl who fell in love with the sport and never looked back. ride for her.
