    Well Countryryder, if you're ever in the Manitoba neck of the woods I'll take you, and I might just have to make a trip out to AB! Lol. I don't have a lot of local horsey friends either. I kind of get the vibe from my farrier that she wouldn't mind a riding buddy, but I feel a little weird approaching her when I know she also offers lessons... I don't want her to feel like I'm trying to mooch a free session off of her or something.

    Ha are vacations ever long enough? That reminds me of when I was in Alaska. Love how remote everything was. And when you just sit around and look at the scenery and all you can hear is nature and not people, it's just wonderful.

    Yeap, someone will have a truck and trailer next year. (either me or another boarder) And we will start going camping and hauling all over. So my Lizzy dear better stop her health issues.

    The two horsey neighbors I would ride with both moved away,and the other horsey neighbor doesn't trail ride. My friend that I rode with all the time moved to Sask. Don't really know anyone else in the area who rides,so I suddenly find myself with no riding buddies,which I'm discovering kinda sucks.

    Wow, it's only been a few hours since I was here last and y'al added a whole page. Someone is quite talkative today.

    I have to comment on the western vs english style. I'm a western guy. Granted I've never tried english, but I've also never had the desire to. To me, it just looks like the rider has a stick up thier butt. It always seemed like "ritzy" riding to me. With the formal attire and everything. I have to wear dress pants and dress shirts for work, I don't want to wear stuff like that when I'm on a horse. Maybe it's just cause all the people who rode english where I grew up were stuck up snobs that thought they, and thier outrageously over priced horses, were better than everyone else. I always pretty much stuck to contesting and trails.

    As for allergies, sucks to be you :) I have slight allergies that result in sneezing now and then. My wife would sympathize with you two though. Hers can get bad. Which means that when I do have a barn of my own, I'll have to do all the hay myself. Poppy, I see an allergy theme among you and your animals. Did you say that Lizzy had an issue with allergies and your dog is allergic to a bunch of stuff? I've heard of pets and thier owners being alike, but that's a bit far don't you think? ;)

    Oh, and I love camping, with or without horses. I'm actually going camping this coming weekend (it's a weekend long birthday party for me :) )

    Haha I know exactly what you mean, WIRider - all the English riders I had ever known definitely had a stick up somewhere. ;) But my farrier is super laid-back, and I don't feel at all put-down or intimidated by her and so I'd like to take some lessons just because it would be fun. I doubt I'll actually "convert"... but it's been nice getting to know some down-to-earth English riders!

    HAHA oh yes the bf keeps saying he's going to put us all down. It is very sad how alike all three of us are :( but my dog has it the worst. If she eats grass her throat closes. But she's so stupid she still eats grass.... so I have to carry little pills for her when I take her anywhere.

    I helped put up over 500 bales this spring and I was wheezing for two days. But since I'm allergic to outside I'm not really going to let that stop me.

    Oh and on the english comment, I paid more for my used synthetic dressage saddle than my horse :) so I'm pretty sure she's not overpriced unless you count her vet bills in there. I had a horse rear and go over on me and if it wasn't for my crash vest the horn would have gone through my ribs so I feel much safer in an english saddle. Plus I can't keep my butt in a western saddle to save my life lol.

    Well, I guess Lizzy isn't overpriced then. I remember people that would show in my hometown that would pay 8 or 9 grand for a yearling that hadn't been messed with because of bloodlines. And then another who knows how much for training. ANd I've had a horn jab me in the gut, it only hurts for a little bit. I rode once with an aussie saddle that had no horn and I felt like I was riding a roller coaster with no lap bar.

    Failbhe, I'm glad to know that there are some not-snooty english riders in the world.

    Oh I could find much better things to spend 8k on. Like the darn vet bills.

    I love english because of jumping. It was my first love and I will get back into it. I've been told I can use my bm's horse who is at least 16hh and bred for jumping. And he's gorgeous. My Lizzy is to old to jump :( so dressage it is.

    Oh and I must add we may explore some team penning. She does an awesome job rounding up the geldings in from pasture :)
