    Welcome Emily!

    Sometimes I question why I ride. I mean it's hard, it's time consuming, it's expensive and can even put my life in danger. Hell, there are MUCH safer past times out there. Like...shopping. Or playing the piano.

    But no. I love riding and it makes me happy. So bring on the helmets and health insurance because I'm not stopping. I mean I'd ride much more often than once a week if I could!

    Seriously. Equestrians are a little bit on the crazy side.

    I'm grumpy today because my ribs are still sore and I don't like it. Bah humbug.

    Welcome, Emily! Nice to have more 20-somethings here. :)

    For me, riding is more like a hobby that is a part of my lifestyle - general horsemanship, spending time with horses. I just like doing everything that this lifestyle provides.

    Hey everyone! (And Emily, who actually inspired me to say hi!) since I too always just go around reading posts but never write anything haha. By the way y names Wren, I'm 23, and I just moved out to Portland, Oregon... and I have to say it makes me happy that there's a thread just for 20-somethings on here since noone at my new barn is near our age :/

    Welcome new members.

    Lizzy has been put back into work full time. She was perfect yesterday since she worked the last 5 of out of 6 days. No more time off for her.

    We have an endurance training ride on Sunday. There is a lady at my barn who does endurance and she has invited me along so I am super excited.

    And I need to clip Lizzy. She has been sweating way too much during short workouts so the fur needs to go. Right now she still isn't dry after an hour with her cooler on. She's blanketed anyway and I now have a heavy blanket with neck cover so she will be fine.

    Other people question why I ride and have horses all the time. Especially in the military. We work long hours, can be gone for weeks, months, or even a year at a time, and honestly don't make THATTT much money.

    But it is never even a question for me. My babies are my escape. Especially in a stressful job, there is nothing else I'd rather do with what time I do get off than be out at the barn. It calms me down and allows me to think. And that is worth its weight in gold, no matter what other sacrifices I have to make in order to have it.

    I'm sure all of you can completely understand :)

    Oh yes, I know exactly what you mean. I rode for about 15 years but quit riding for 7 after my horse died. I began to struggle with anxiety in my early 20's and started riding again about 2 years ago and what a difference it has made. I think I've always had issues with being anxious, but always had an outlet in the form of horses. Even if I'm not riding, there is something soothing about just being around horses that I can't explain.
