Yes, your article was very ironic? I just turned 26 and am aiming on taking lessons this year or next. My uncle actually bought me a horse when I was little, which stayed at his place, but I was too little to ride it yet. I loved going to the barn and feeding it apples though and I have gone on several trail rides through the years with experienced horses but am wanting to take real lessons and learn all the groundwork. My daughter has shown an interest and my husband and I hought it might be nice for us all to get involved, especially since we (my husband and I) have always liked horses.

"Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must."

Great article, Hoofprints! And thanks for sharing the 'horse junkies' site; I know I'll be spending waaay too much time on there, lol. As someone who was away from the world of horses for a dozen years (and thought I was 'cured'), I can attest to the fact that the addiction is indeed lifelong. And, as I described in probably too much detail in my 'introduction to the community', it seems to be a genetic affliction :)

Your story was bittersweet for me because I had to part with my soulmate horse, Jamie, and I haven't had another since. But hopefully one day, when I'm sure it will be 'forever', I'll find another, and we'll have an ending as happy as yours and Sandie's!

Whatever you think you can do or believe you can do, begin it. Action has magic, grace, and power in it. Goethe

It absolutely warms my heart when I hear of yet another newbie adult, I want the whole world in a saddle & on a horse! I started riding when I was 2 yrs old with my brother, I was truly blessed to have horses in all of my life. Everyone can benefit from this wholesome activity!
