    Hey all, so I am new-ish to the forums, I've mostly been lurking around some threads, but love the idea of getting to know my fellow 20 somethings!
    I am 23, I've been riding for 15 years but just bought my first horse, Raven a 8 y/o TB. Love him to death already and we've only been together 2 months. I previously showed Hunter/Jumper but am kind of out of it now. Looking to possibly try some cross country in the future. I've helped train a couple of green horses at my previous stable as well. I live in Toronto, Ontario and although I live in the city I still have my country girl moments. In my spare time when I'm not with Raven I work as an RN at SickKids hospital!

    Hello my name is Victoria, I'm 20 yrs old been rideing horse sense I was born I guess you could say, I live in good ol Sunny/humid Florida. I have 7 horses well some of them belong to my dad but I call them mine and he knows it ;)
    I mostly just ride for the fun of it have trained a few horses with my dad, I did take jumping lessons for 2 yrs till I didnt have the money any more.
    I ride English and Westren but english is where my heart is, but still break out the ol westren saddle when I go rideing with my dad sense he's old cowboy. :)
    I'm married to my bestfriend who loves horses aswell, he rides westren. We have a 4 month old baby Boy who will probably be my little cowboy too if my dad and my hubby have anything to do with it. :)
    Sorry for the long post.

    Hello, Hello. Im new here. Tomorrow is my birthday, Ill be 29. I guess in a year you'll boot me to the 30 somethings thread!

    I have 3 horses. A POA, a QH, and a leopard Appaloosa. And my emergency llama (more on that later). I've been riding since I was 22. And I've had my own place with my own horses for 3 years now. We do mostly trail riding, but also some western gaming stuff.

    Ok... you've got to elaborate on the 'emergency llama'!

    It's been 86 degrees all day (I know the temperatures are higher in many other countries, but this is VERY high for us) and the boarding place where I keep my horse is swarmed with horseflies. Our poor horses hide in the shelters from early morning till late evening, and I really can't do anything much with Snickers until the horseflies go away. Which won't happen until early August. Meh. :(

    At least I can go and give him a bucket of treats, a shower or a swim in the river, and take care of the bug bites.

    Its just a no-way kinda thing. I let my friends choose who they want to be with, they're going to be the ones stuck with them...
    And THAT is why I keep my relationships to myself lol

    That's too bad. The flies have been bad here too, but I tried a different brand of fly spray that seems to be helping. It's not perfect, but better than my old spray was. (UltraShield by Absorbine) Can you spray Snickers? Or make a smudge? When the flies are nasty it's just impossible to do anything - you're twitchy and irritated, they are twitchy and irritated, nobody can concentrate on anything...

    No sprays (and I've tried all kinds that are available here) seem to work for more than 5 minutes on our monster horseflies, so I decided just not to spray him with those chemicals - they don't help anyway. We live by a swamp and a river, so the amount of bugs is natural, just annoying - all horses in our barn get a vacation during July. If I decide to ride, I put a fly mask and a riding flysheet on him, those protect him at least during the ride, but I can't leave them on when I let him out in the pastures, because his herdmates are quick to undress him. :)

    There's really nothing I can do, and at least he is comfortable during the night, when the horseflies sleep and the horses leave the shelters and graze in the pastures. So I'm having a wonderful cantaloupe right now, just to comfort myself. :)
