I'm Faye, I'm 26. I've owned horses since I was 2 years old.

I studied at Edinburgh university for a bachelors in Chemical Engineering, Whilst doing that I kept 2 horses in competiton fitness (was easier than my A levels where I kept 4 in competition fitness).

I currently work in Research and development at Reckitt Benckiser for 40 hrs a week, I also juggle teaching riding, bringing on my own baby pony (problem child if ever there was one), one Boyfriend, 2 golden retrievers, dance classes, camping out in a wet muddy field (OH does reenactment, I get dragged out to watch) and very occassionaly i get to watch that thing called a TV or go for a night out!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Aye, outside of horses and PhD I try to get in as much climbing, mountaineering, and camping as possible. I also play Irish trad music and go out to sessions once or twice per week on average. Keeps me off the streets.

This is really cool to see all of you! I've been throwing out little bits at a time, but here goes "the whole story" lol!
I am 27 (I'll be 28 at the end of the month), went to school in NC for automotive training and worked for NASCAR the last 7 years on a pit crew. Moved back to WA8 months ago and helped my friend with her 2 rescues and her mare she has had 13 years. They moved to Canada and I moved to Montana. Got my mare a week ago. I live with 2 dogs (my Dozer who is a basenji x and Kaya who is a Dogo Argentinio), 3.5 roomies (3 other adults and an adorable 5 month old). We live on a farm with 40+ chickens, 7 turkeys, 5 goats (4 of whom are preggers), ducks, geese, 3 horses (hopefully my mare will be down here soon too...) and a friend who lives in a cabin at the back of the farm with her two dogs! It can get a little crazy but I love it! We all take care of each other, have a sort of co-op type feel going....
This is a view of part of our little farm from the railroad tracks... I LOVE MONTANA! :)

I am 21, work full time (40-50 hrs per week) attend college full time(night classes and online work) and start colts as a side job. I have been riding horses since I was 13. I worked on the farm for my grandfather till I had enough money to purchase the fence then had to work several more months for him to be able to afford my first horse and he graciously allowed me to put my horse on his property. Little to my knowledge as a 13 year old my grandfather was helping me out early on in understanding that nothing in life is free and if you want something bad enough you have to go out and work for it. A lesson that we should all teach our children in the future. I started breaking in colts when I was 15 and by the time I was 17 I had moved on to a more natural way of doing things and have been honing my skills ever since! I have a full plate ha ha. I am busy from dusk till dawn.

Oh, oh, I'll play. :)
I'm Sarah, I'm 23 - Born and bred Michiganian but I moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana for school. I graduated with my degree in Veterinary Technology in December, and just now finally got a job! Woot!
So as you may have guessed, animals are my life. I never let go of that childhood pony dream, but my parents always told me that riding lessons and horses were for rich people, so I never got the chance to fulfill it - until now. I am a completely self taught rider, assisted by the guiding hand of my best friend and horsey mentor.
I spend all my free time out at her farm, where I board my TWH. I love him dearly... I won't bore you with details, you can see Smoke in my barn.
I have two dogs, two cats, and I'm currently fostering one pregnant cat and another that just had kittens 3 weeks ago. My life is pretty furry, but that's the way I like it...

Also, I am so grateful for the wonderful resource that HorseForum is... I've learned so much, and am thrilled to be part of such a diverse and knowledgeable community.

I am 21 and turning 22 in July. Im am in full-time college to become an SSW (Social Service Worker). I hope to do that for a while and at some point work animals and therapy into that. I own a 7 year old breed stalk paint geldering named Cody. I board him at a small boarding facility were my friend is the barn manager and I ride with her and another girl quite often. its our "wold pack" haha. I also work 2 jobs. its alot, and extreamly stressfull. My pony and my boyfriend are the only things keeping my sane. no joke

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

Ooh...I'll join :)

I'm Bek...I am 22. I have 6 horses. 4 Warmbloods,an Arab, and a Paint/Arab) and 2 dogs (a Yorkie and a Japanese Chin) :) I got my first pony/started riding at 2 and have been riding ever since! My riding has been greatly subdued the last year or 2 by serious health issues,but I am very much hoping to get back into the swing of things by this summer. 2 of my WB mares are pregnant and both due within a couple months which of course I am terribly excited for! And I live in Oregon which I absolutely love! The only other places I would consider moving to would be 1) Washington 2) Ireland ;)

I'm 27 and married but no kids yet. I started riding on a weekly basis at age 9 and finally got my own horse at age 15. By the time I was 17 though, I got into cars and drag racing and gave up everything horsey (including my horse). I met my husband at the racetrack and the rest is history..... until 2 years ago. I decided that something was missing from my life and started riding again. I had never taken actual riding lessons so I started that and re-educated myself on everything since so much has changed!! I purchased a 2 year old quarter horse in December and have been bringing him along (albeit slowly due to weather). When I'm not at work or at the barn with my horse, I'm helping hubby with his chevy truck resto/mod, going to car shows, or going for a motorcycle ride.

I don't really have time for going out of friends; time management when your horse needs you to be consistent is difficult.

I'm turning 23 this year, and I just started riding from scratch 3 years ago! I've recently bought my first horse and I also have 2 aging rabbits in my care. Currently going to university for a bachelor's in science, hopefully to either do veterinary medicine or animal nutrition.

Only recently getting the feel of spending all your time in a barn... and loving it!
