Cheers. Now if only someone would give me a job. :/ Finding academic jobs sucks.

But yes, I am officially a doctor. :) And my horse has been with me through four degrees. She is a very well educated horse.

I am 25, live in Riga, Latvia, riding for just 2 years but already a proud owner of a horse, fan of NH and natural horsekeeping, also singing, neofolk, fantasy & sci-fi literature, a gamer girl and a devoted dreamer.

This is me:

Pleased to meet you, y'all.

I have 4 days before I'm officially in my 20s, but as of the fall semester I will be an Equine Science major at North Dakota State University. I was a Film Studies major, but it wasn't for me so I switched it to a minor so I am actually a student at Minnesota State University Moorhead also. I love MSUM but NDSU had the equine major. I couldn't think of anything else that sounded appealing, so I figured I'm halfway through this college thing that I would do something I enjoy just to have a piece of paper saying I went through 4 or 5 years of hell (I'm not a huge fan of school..). I have no intention of getting a horsey-related job, though it would be a bonus.

I have had my fatty for 2 years in September. She is an almost 9 year old solid Paint. After I moved for college, I decided I wanted a horse as I work as a wrangler at a summer camp. Not at all a good financial decision, but it's therapeutic. :]

Hoy hoy,
So, I am in my early, mid, late twenties (by which I mean 26). I am currently back at school after getting a psychology degree and deciding that what I really want to do is work at a zoo. This only makes sense as that's sort of what my life is a zoo. I grew up around horses, standardbreds to specific, in New England. I have worked and ridden in Nova Scotia, Wyoming, Colorado and Montana (near Yellowstone). I am currently back in New England. I have my mare (Burt) given to me by my folks and I am putting miles on one, hyperaware 13 year old (Harry) and putting miles on a 4 year old (Mr. Vacation a.k.a The brat and/or Dinkus).
Balancing work, school and equines is a challenge. Sometimes, I don't get out to the barn and I feel guilty but that's life. I also am proudly owned by a cat and a labrador retriever. I am a sometimes fan of natural horsemanship and sometimes a fan of unnatural horsemanship.
The current challenges are to ride my mare Burt just for fun and ignore that when I am riding her I should be riding one of the projects. Harry (the nervous one) his goal for the summer is to calm the hibbitty down. This means learning that the world (which means the lungewhip, the big tree down the path, the riding area or that rabbit next to the trail, etc) is not going to kill him. Mr. Vacation's goal is to turn without sticking his nose out at a strange angle and if possible get a butt, but not be a butt. Then of course their goals are to find nice homes at some point in the future.
that's about all its cool meeting you folks.

Guess I'll join in. My name is Holly, I'm from the state of Utah. I am 25 yrs old, and have been addicted to horses since birth. I come from a non horsey family, so i'm sure mist of you can relate. Horse was practically my first word. I was fortunate enough to have neighbors on all sides of me with horses, so I daydreamed about them all day long. I took riding lessons here and there when I was young. I pretty much just kind of picked it up as I rode my neighbors horses.

When I was 14, my parents gave in and bought me my first horse named Missy. She was a bay tobiano paint, and she was my barrel racer. When I turned 19, I took hunter/jumper lessons and fell in love with English riding. During that time, I purchased my second horse, Bingley. He and I have been together for 6 yrs now. We competed in hunter shows together. He is now retired from jumping, and I purchased my 3rd horse, Belle last year. She is a solid bay paint, and has been my first horse I've been training myself. I'm not real fast with it, but we're getting it. I wish I knew how to post photos with an iPad, cause I'd love to show you all my horses!

I am working on becoming a nurse. I work full time as a nursing assistant. I love my job!!! But I do love coming home so I can be with my horses! Anyway, it's nice to meet you all and hear all about your horses.

So how is everyone doing these days?! I recently got a new job, am looking for an apartment for the mutt n me and trying to find somewhere to keep my horse nearby. The roomie situation has been a bit out of control as of late, and though the free pasture here is nice, it's not enough to keep me here stressed out all the time!
