I'm still a newbie to the horse world... Kind of...

Started a weekly lesson this time last year (as an adult with very very few rides as a kid), bought my first horse in Feb this year (lived in suburbia so agisted him in full care), second in July and moved to 25acres so now they live with me...

I had a great instructor where I agisted but am now interstate so no longer have an instructor. I've spent many times on horse forums asking many questions and love the fact that people are so helpful. I've now almost completed a Tafe horse course and have been accepted and enrolled to study a Bachelor of Equine Science next year, and will soon start Equine Asissted Therapy with clients I see.

My life has changed dramatically in one year - being that I now understand the connection with horses and love it! I am very competent with ground work, encourage impecable manners from my boys and treat them well with a good focus on nutition and natural care - still a nervous nelly in the saddle but getting better...

So, you may be a newbie now, but you'll be the one offering assistance to the other newbies in a few months! :)

Congrats on your purchase and new love... :)

I'm a newer member to the world of horses and I also have an Appaloosa. He is a red/white color and he is 10 yrs. old. Don't feel alone!

I just bought my girl in late July/early August. She's a 5 year old Trakhener X. It's been AMAZING so far. I rode for about 15 years on and off prior to making my first purchase. After all that time this purchase wasn't even planned either - wrong time, right deal, so I took a chance and it worked out REALLY REALLY well. I'm still learning as I go, as I think everyone does. Its fun though, and definitely keeps you on your toes!

I'm kinda a newbie. I grew up with horses, we had and still have a couple of them but they're family horses, everyone gets to ride and groom and all that. About almost two years ago I got my first own pony. We sold him a couple of months ago which makes me sad because I loved to ride him. But I'm looking forward to getting my second very own horse. ;)
