It's official! I'm not touching a penny of my money until I have enough to buy a horse and supplies. My best friend said she would help me out with equipment and other stuff, and I'd be keeping the horse at her place. I'm just so excited! It may take about a year, but I'm extremely determined to get there. I mean, who wouldn't be excited to get their first, very own horse?!
I remember getting my first horse, a free thoroughbred gelding with all his tack. He was gorgeous bad had some vices that no sane person should have ever tackled as a novice, but with a trainer I managed. I even kept my cool when we fell in a HUGE sinkhole that sucked us both in. He just climbed out like a much younger horse couldn't have. Posted via Mobile Device
That's awesome! :) I would like to get an older horse that's been broke. I don't think I'd be ready to break and train a horse considering where I'm at now with my skill level and such. How did you fall in a sinkhole?
We were just walking around the riding arena, it was all sand, and suddenly it just crumbled away into a hole! It was like quicksand, and the people around us were pretty hysterical, but I didn't realize what exactly happened until he climbed out, not a bad feat for a 16 year old! Posted via Mobile Device
Board at the barn I ride and work at is $525 for in stall, $425 for paddock and $325 for pasture. And there are not many other barns around where I live..I would of course want it to be at the barn I take lessons and work at, that would be nice.
