Sweet as

I agree with what was mentioned previously, in that 20 somethings are a relative minority in the active horse community. Lots of teens and 40+ but I think the time constraints of study/work/new family requirements phase a lot of our age group out.

Except the super organized and committed ones like us of course

Of course! LOL! I just got back to having my own horse for the first time since 2002 when I graduated HS. The only reason I am able to right now is because I moved to a farm in Montana. My landlord had a horse he didn't have time (or want) to put in to training. As soon as he heard that I knew what I was doing he offered her to me. I pay for her board and feed by training his other horses (I am going to be showing his morgan stallion this summer).

So what are some of the common struggles you guys run into having to care for your horse with all of your other obligations? Do you have friends or family to help you? :)

I just turned 29 and am leasing my first horse, he's a 7 year old gelding. I've only been riding a year and need all the help I can get!

I also have 2 dogs, a Husky mix and a bluetick coonhound.

Well I'm basically by myself. The boy is an airline pilot which means he's gone a lot. The hardest for me is fitting everything in a day. I have a dog that has to go for walks since we live in an apartment and I spend a minimum of an hour a day at the barn. And I also have to make dinner and then lunch for the next day.

When I go back to school it will be busy but I wouldn't change any of it. I love having my own horse and love the fact that she relies on me to feed her all her supplements everyday and just take care of her. But it does leave almost no time during the week for anything else.

How does anyone do it? I leave for work at 6 am and get home around 4:15pm. I need more hours in a day.

Isn't it so exciting?! I just got my first horse a few months ago. It makes everyday better.

Yay! I'm 21, this is my last semester of college. Woohoo! Been riding since I was a baby, taught by my mom. Hoping to get my horse out here ASAP, but first I need a freaking JOB. Crossing my fingers, as a real great opportunity came up and I should know by this week! If I get it, I can definitely save up the money I need for my horse.

I'm 28 and have one horse, who I've had for over twelve years. I just finished a PhD and would really like it if someone in academia gave me a real job.

I should also have a PhD on keeping a horse through about ten years of university.
