I've been around horses my entire life. I used to ride a LOT when I was little, but I had to move to the city and lost touch with it all.
I'm moving to Georgia soon and I'll have an acre and a half, so I plan to keep my horse with me (:
I volunteered at a stable for about a year and a half and I learned a lot about horse care. How to pic the hooves, properly groom, how to tack up, blanketing, lunging, leading, etcetc.
That stable was also a place for handicapped kids to learn how to ride (as a form of therapy), and learn how to care for the animals. I helped teach riding lessons and horse care, also. (:
