    (Yay a thread for 20Somethings!)

    Out of town spending time with my family, so the 4th is dedicated to that.

    But even though I'm supposed to be out of town on vacation I STILL found a way to get a horse ride in. Getting an "intro/taste of endurance riding" lesson tomorrow!

    That is a kickass find, Houston! I wish they had things like that around here. They do have intro to vaulting.. which I want to try. But gotta wait till I know my budgets with my new job first..

    I didn't plan on getting married that young! A lot of girls in my dorm at college were desperate to find boyfriends and I was pretty indifferent. When Kevin came along though we both knew it was right! It hasn't always been easy, that's for sure. A couple years ago we almost split up but we decided that no matter what we were going to work through it and stay together. So we got 'wedding rings' (our initials) tattooed on our fingers instead of actual rings. Since he's working with machinery on the farm, and I'm out with the horses, we hardly ever wore our real rings.

    About getting your husband or bf to ride... it's tough! Kev loves having the horses around, but he is such a marshmallow and they know that and walk all over him. He does want to get a horse of his own though, in a couple years. I hope it works out, I'd love to be able to ride together!

    Ahh at least he's still an instructor. Does he plan to go to the airlines? It's so much better now that he's based here where we live. I moved to another state a year ago away from all my friends and family to move closer to him and then he was based out in California. Commuting was hard but it's finally over.

    We plan on getting married but it just costs to darn much right now. Plus we're not prepared for the tax consequences of double income yet lol. We know what we want for the wedding so we need to save money first.

    Gasp! It seems that I haven't introduced myself here yet!

    My name is Laura (but I actually prefer Saranda), I'm 25 and from Latvia. That would be the basics. I entered the world of horses (lol, sounds epic) just two and a half years ago, soon after that I met my perfect horse, took lessons until I was skilled enough to care for him and now he's all mine - I bought him last December.

    I work as an assitant for the chief of our local municipal police and it helps me cover my equine expenses, but I'd actually like to change my job to something that is closer to my heart. But finding a job is rough here right now, so I'll just stick to what I have for a while.

    I live with two flatmates and three cats in our capital city, spend my time with my horse and also reading, writing poetry and singing in a neo-folk band. I enjoy trekking, sighting wild animals and recovering the ancient traditions and songs of my people. Aaaand, I'm single. Not that it matters.

    How did I not see this thread before? Hi everyone, I'm Allie and I'm 23. I've been riding since I was 10. I recently started at a new barn because of some issues at my old barn. My boyfriend is very supportive of my riding. He comes to all of my shows and some of my lessons and takes pictures of me riding. That's all for now I guess.

    Neo-folk? Interesting - can I find any of your music anywhere?

    Okay so my name Tricia im 21 and I have ridden a gaited horse for the past 4 years. Rode him in English and never received any lessons or anything. So last year I just purchase my 4 year old Swedish warmblood and he's currently in training with a dressage instructor who has serious ambitions for where she sees him in the next 3 years. She wants me to find him a young rider so we can show him in all the classes, but I'm not going to lie I'm a little bummed about it. I financially have no other option but it bums me out that someone else is going to partially take over my horse.. I know this sounds selfish of me.. :( not that I have a big problem learning from someone younger I guess being I own the horse it should be the other way around.. Does this make sense.. Sorry for the ramble but it's really been bothering me!! Am I just over reacting? I feel like I'm going to be loosing a bond with my horse if more people keep entering his life ya know?
