    Just saw the 30-somethings thread pop up so I figured there had to be one for 20-somethings.

    Don't have anything fun to share at the moment, but I'll definitely be subbing to this one!

    It has been a while since a 20-something has posted in this thread, is it OK if I revive it?

    Was wondering where this thread had gone! Did all the 20-somethings turn 30-something or something?

    I'm just horseless at the moment *sobs* so not much to say!

    The thread went so silent that I eventually stopped posting myself. Many things going on in life, so less time to chat, too! But I hope everyone is well and happy. :)

    Hi all!

    Hope you're all good. Glad to see this thread revived.

    Things are going okay for me. I bought a new horse on Sunday. So now I have two until I sell Harmony. I have no self control :) I tried my saddle on him today and it fitted perfectly!!!! First time that as ever happened, normally for me new horse = new saddle.

    My back has been giving me grief so I've decided to give up "english" riding and do more western/stock style (where the saddles agree with me more).

    What are the updates on you guys?

    I guess the main thing for us was that the barn we spent the summer at shut down and I moved Snickers to a new facility with extremely beautiful surroundings, which has up to now fulfilled my expectations. Snickers is feeling happy and spunky as ever and I've got two more horses to train groundwork to - a 11 years old Trakhener gelding with a big headshyness problem, which is now fading, and a lovely, spoiled 1.5 yo Trakhener filly. Before moving I also trained a 3yo pony mare, belonging to the previous BO, and the mare was later sold to a friend of mine, which I am very happy about, and Snickers & me participated in our first showjumping competition - we didn't place, but we had a clear round and had lots of fun.

    And here I was worried I'd revived a thread that was meant to die! I guess not, so it was a successful thread necromancy!




    Anyway, I am definitely a newbie to the forum. I don't own any horses, but I had my first lesson in ages last night! It went great and I know what I need to work on! I need to get used to communicating with my body again, for example. I'll be taking lessons weekly, each Monday.

    The lad I was riding, a big thoroughbred named Quebec, was a great boy. He and I just have to become comfortable with each other, I need to learn how he is and he needs to get a chance to trust me. Even though he can go fast, he kept his pace nice and easy for me.

    It has been almost ten years since I've been in the saddle. So I am beyond rusty and knew I'd be starting at square one. But I like square one, I need time to either remember or relearn what I've forgotten. Stuff like proper grooming came back to me in an instant, at least!

    Maybe next week I'll get a picture of Quebec to post

    I don't know I ever posted on this thread before, but I rememeber stalking it for a while before it disappeared.

    I've been working on toby for the last 45 days.... after six weeks on pasture, we moved the monsters to a small private barn, and began putting toby through the restart process. He started at picture 1, and most recently looks like picture 2. He put on about 50lbs, and we're slowly building muscle. In south fl, theres not many hills to speak of. So we've been doing lots of long trotting on trails twice a week. Four days a week, we're in the arena, working on cues and balance. Finally have a right lead!!!!

    Haha,I was just thinking the other day that I should wander over here and see where everyone had gone.. :)
    It's been a ridiculously crazy summer for me,a little overwhelming at times,actually.
    But all my girls are doing really well.Lena was turned out to grow up the majority of the summer on some pasture I rent down the road.She's grown like a weed and is turning into a lovely little lady.Sequoya is wonderful as always;haven't been able to be riding her as much as I would have liked over the summer but she's always good to go whenever I hop on.Juno has improved in leaps and bounds,she is now very nice to work with and so affectionate.She is in foal for next spring,so excited! Chica is also in foal,so I will hopefully have two little ones to play with come next summer. :) And,I have a new girl that I picked up a few weeks ago.She's a 4 yr.old American Saddlebred,gorgeous and spunky little mare.She was shown in hand as a yearling and 2 yr.old and did very well,then was started under saddle about 8 months ago.She hasn't had anything done with her since,so she's pretty green,but she seems like she's going to be a blast to ride.Can't wait until we get my leg working properly again and I can start riding her! Here's a pic of her,her name is Legacy's Layla.
