Well... Nobody of my most important friends ride. I ride at a local riding stable and ofcourse there are people there but in some reason I haven't made any important friend at the stable. But I'm satisfied with this because (now you become shocked :D) horses are only a hobby to me in these days, not a way to life.
In addition to this, my friends have interest enough to listen me if I turn on talk about horses :D. Or then they want only be polite for me. Oh, and my cousin is a really horse lover. Even if she is a lot of younger than I we agree together brilliant.
