    They do breed a few mares, but they aren't really selling the foals so breeding is stopped for now.
    The owner is starting a Equine Assisted Psychotherapy program and the Teke's are amazing with it! They are super in tune with their handler and that works really well with the therapy.
    Her website is Equine Assisted Therapy Institute
    They have 14 horses, 11 purebreds, 2 half Tekes, and a APHA mare.
    I fell in love with the breed and really want to own my own someday!

    I am loving being back in Saskatchewan! I love the prairies! They speak to me like no other land has! On the other hand, I really don't like the fact that it snowed twice since I've been home.

    I get to see my two horses on Friday! I haven't seen them for about a year. My brother is hauling them down to my friend's place about 30 minutes from here, where I'll be boarding them. I can't wait to ride my gelding and get to know my filly/mare (she's 5, but not trained at all).

    I just got back to Sk on the 3rd of April, so I'm settling in with work (I got my old job back) and living with my sister and brother-in-law. I hope to get my own place this fall.

    Other than that, I am getting my minivan (I need a cooler car than a minivan, but that's what I have) up and running again. New tires, new battery, oil change, etc etc. My credit card is going to love me!

    I am 21 (22 this summer).
    Ooooh that sounds like an awesome internship! Good luck with your visitation. Very sweet of your brother to haul them down for you.

    Yeah, my brother is pretty nice, and according to all the girls, he's cute as well.
    I'll be paying his fuel. They are about 3 1/2 hours north from where I live.
    Unfortunately the roads are supposed to be crappy tomorrow. Lots of snow and wind. My brother said that he'll see what it's like and then make a decision about whether to come down or not.

    What is everyone else's weather like? Here it's been a bit snowy and staying around -2*C in the day time with a fair amount of wind. I am so ready for real spring!

    Foal
    Hi I'm new! I am 24, I got into horses at 19. Sometimes I feel way behind because most people I know have been in the horse thing since they were kids. I went thru a bad breakup so a friend started giving me lessons and then a year later I bought my own horse, a 12 year old paint gelding. Then I met my biological father and turns out he's a big horse guy! It was in my blood all along :)

    Question for everyone, what was it that got you into horses?

    Well it certainly has been a while. I'm very (im)patiently waiting for my mare to foal. She is at 352 days today, 353 if I wait 20 minutes.

    What got me into horses... my older sister in a way. She badly wanted a horse when she was about 7 and I was 4 but she knew she stood a better chance if we were a united front. I wasn't too hard to convince and so my mom, my sister and I took lessons and learned the basics of horsemanship. About a year later we bought our first horse from the stable where we took lessons and I've been riding ever since.

    Congrats on meeting your dad! I got into horses when I was diagnosed with depression and PTSD. I thought it would be great therapy and boy I was right! All I think about while riding, is riding itself. It's a wonderful escape and is so relaxing for me.

    Welcome Peppersonlygirl!

    I got into horses pretty much because I wanted to! Each term my parents would let me take one or two activities, I'd done ballet, gymnastics, soccer, martial arts etc but I thought trying horse riding would be fun. It was the only one that stuck! One lesson a week, then two, then three, then convincing my parents that owning a horse would be cheaper!

    It's funny the different things that have brought us to horses. And I know what you mean Princessa - riding is a HUGE stress relief for me. I work full-time and go to school part-time, so riding helps me decompress.

    Still nothing on the Lilly front. She's at 357 days today. I write my last final tomorrow night, so, really, any time now would be just fine by me.

    Hi! I am new here :)
    I have been riding for all my life, and have had a break from horses. (it wasn't worth it). Tomorrow I am meeting a lady about leasing her horse for a few days a week. I am nervous, and excited. Not sure if I should wear my riding clothes or not, I am not going to ride tomorrow tough..
