    Yes.. but I still have much to learn. But when they tell me that I don't know anything, when I obviously know enough to rehab a horse, get him trained enough for being handled, ridden both in saddle and bareback.. it pisses me off.

    I'm Nicole (big surprise) and I'm 25. I've been riding for 15 years in lessons and just bought my first horse 3 years ago after leasing her for 4 years. When I was younger, I used to cowboy over 4 ft jumps. Now, I'm back to basics after being committed to the dressage ring for a while. We're just now getting into eventing and have schooled in the field about 4 times now. Having a blast!

    I just recently quit my job as an auditor at a public accounting firm. I'm now working internal audit at large company and I'm trying to figure out what to do with all my extra time to myself!!

    Anyone else going for their CPA, by chance?

    Hey guys! Im 19 years old.. whoops not quite 20 :) I currently have 2 horses, both of which I broke myself, i've been riding for 4 years, and I have been apart of the HF community for a little over 3.

    I am more of a black sheep here, I didn't start off well on the forums, and most people tried to run me completely off from here however I am to thick skinned to care, and I have to much knowledge to not share it all with the wonderful people that are here!

    My favorite is the ones who are like, "I've been riding for a couple years now, I think I can handle it" when you've just told them the horse they're on has a specific issue, then said issue comes up and they get hurt, but its your fault because you put an inexperienced rider on a "bad horse". He doesn't like chickens. I told you not to ride him through the chickens. Doesn't make him bad, makes you look stupid.

    Gilly, I completely sympathize! I used to spend my days browsing the web for OTTBs. You'll get there!

    Riding through chickens is a horrible idea.. why would someone do that in the first place?!

    I just have a mental picture of someone galloping through a small yard with like 100 chickens, and the horse spooking and chickens flying everywhere, please tell me it did not happen like that.
