:( I don't have a horse either :(
I did once but I had a bad experience with her and only kept her for a week. I don't think I'll be getting another for a while, I've got my exams, 6th form, possibly uni? A member of the male species I realy like but don't go out with and so am trying to persue
I do however work at my stables once a fornight on a Sunday, and I go riding up there every Sunday, so I get plenty of experience with horses.
It's great that you may get to buy Socrates, he looks gorgeous!
I hope you get to lease him next year, that would be ace
The equestrian team? Do you mean big time competing or like a stable team or something? (sorry I'm not very good with competition, the only ones I've been in are local Shire foal shows!
