    America

    So, ever since I was little(well littler) I have adored America! I love the western scene you guys have over there. Here in the capital of Australia we are all pretty ride english. I am at every rodeo around Canberra. One day I hope to take me, my horse and my dog over to live in America. To shorten that all up **** I love you guys!

    Its got pros and cons believe me. Not everyone rides western, tons of english riders everywhere. Depending on what state you live in, you might want to reconsider. Lol. Depending on you. And New York City isn't very western, I've been there a few times. That's where my dad lives. And a friend of mine has a retired champion showjumper from there. I mean, we are the Land of the Brave and Home of the Free.

    I know but you laws seem to be much less strict for example in Australia it's illegal to not vote. I was looking at western saddles the other day, or at least I tried to. All western saddle around Canberra I could find were synthetic. All horses that live around here are just Arabs, TB's and Warmbloods. Like c'mon were are all the barrel racing qh and appys? Hahahaha

    You want barrel racers move to Nevada. But its against the law to talk on your phone here, lol. We've got a bit of a reining buzz, it seems. And we have some crime. I think my favorite part about it all is the states. Such versatility. I like living here, don't get me wrong. But you got to watch where you live.

    It you want rodeos and cowboys and all that. Wyoming is a good place to be.
    Tons of open space.

    Hey now, we have Arabs that barrel race, too! Most can't hold a candle to the QHs, I must concede. I wish we had laws that made it illegal not to vote, so many have died for us to have that right. It can be confusing and down right aggravating to choose one idiot, I mean candidate over another but it is important to get your voice heard. Hope you can make your way over here and ride the open ranges!

    I always wanted to be in the West here, too. I made it. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else now, but it's not always easy.

    I think many places up here would suit you, if you can find work. If you need to work, I guess. My favorites are in northern Nevada and eastern Wyoming.

    We have Arabs, TBs and WBs, and the east coast of the US is primarily English riding. The west and midwest states are where you'll find most of the Western disciplines.

    As far as it being illegal to talk on cellphones, that's only while driving without a hands free device, and only in some states. Texting while driving is illegal in every state, but not talking. It's also not a Federal law, each state has their own laws about cellphones.

    It's illegal NOT to vote in Oz? How the heck do they enforce something like that?
