Foal
Greetings to all the fellow 20-somethings on this here forum Lakota, my sister is 21 and getting married on November 3 to her boyfriend of 7 years. She gets odd comments as well because she's so young and she openly admits to wanting to start a family so people tend to be a bit "WTF?" about it.

But then again they don't know my sister and haters going to hate.

Your little forum horse grew into a don't-need-momma-no-mo weanling! As in you're used to how the forum operates so now you are considered a non beginner due to your post count. Congrats

If horses could talk, I wonder what they're say!

Haha I know. I frequently think about the poor dude and how awful it must be

Thats why you need to find a man that not only tolerates the horses, but funds them as well. As an equestrian, it is one of many secrets to a happy marriage That was one of my requirements. I needed a man that at least tolerated horses, and understood that some days, I just needed to ride. My husband isn't into horses, but he helps with chores and likes to pet and love on mine.

Turns out my horse actually prefers my husband to me now. Go figure

Haha haters I got the whole "your too young" thing from a lot of people. Everyone was asking me why I wanted to get married so young. My big thing was "why not?" I found the man I knew I wanted to marry, so what would waiting 5 years til it was more "normal age" do?

Same with being preggers. I want a family, always have, and I want to be a young mom. I want to be done having kids by 30. My oldest will be 18 before I even turn 40! Then when they start having kids of their own, maybe I can keep up with them! LOL My husband says the same thing, he's only 22 (going on 23) himself. We're happy with where we are at and that is all that matters.

I got married at 19. It was actually our 9th anniversary yesterday!

My mom almost had a heart attack. She tried so hard to talk me out of it... and I can't blame her, if I had a daughter getting married that young I'd probably freak out too. But when you know, you know!

No kids for us - still happy for those who have them, I've just never wanted any myself.

I know I'm glad my bf is into horses. He won't ever "own" one again, as when he sold his it was left tied to a tree until it died. He's still looking for the guy who did it. But he loves on annie constantly and gives her anything she wants. She knows he's her buddy, and as long as she's not mean, she gets her way (and mommys the big bully with the saddle, but she has treats so eh lol)
We've known eachother since we were thirteen. He was the no good neighbor kid, and my dad used to chase him down the street when he'd come to say hi. I got in so much trouble from 15-17 for sneaking out to hang out with him :) I don't think we would have had anywhere safe to be if it wasn't for smuglys stall.

Congrats!! I too was married at 19, just celebrated my 1st year anniversary earlier this month

I can't say I wouldn't be a little worried if I had a daughter get married that young either. Although my mother was extremely supportive, she got married at 18 herself though.

Funny my dad commented to my mom the other day about how he thought I was too young to be having babies (although he is personally ecstatic about it). And my mama looks at him and said "I was younger than her when you got me pregnant." She said he was all
Nicole and Failbhe like this.

I've been seriously riding since 15 but since horse related injurys, my own health and a group of crappy coaches and not so stellar horses it's only been in the past year I'm really moving up in the ranks in my area showing on the A circuit. My goal is to be a professional: make a profession out of horses. I'm glad there's people here my age . I have made huge sacrifices to ride and I did run a boarding business for 4 years. I have sacrificed friends/ social life ( not an exaggeration trust me..) with friends and no boyfriends. I have tunnel vision on what I want and don't want outside distractions.( that's boys who tend to do that and is why many girls drop out of riding)

That's why I joined to forum, I'm busy all the time but this is my social thing ... Pretty sad eh? Oh well .....

Hope I didn't babble too much!
Hi Mckellar! :) I just wanted to give you some words of encouragement. I also took a year or so off and then started an internship because I wanted to see what I was made of; see if I'd get burned out training horses. It has been the best learning experience of my life thus far. I don't have a social life or a boyfriend and I couldn't care less. However, I do still maintain my friendships and my relationship with my family. They are they important people in my life the rest is all horses! ;)

My boyfriend doesn't get my interest in horses at all... or where it came from... He says it must be a "girl thing." Yet my instructor is a man and half of his students are guys in their 20s/30s. Maybe I just picked a good barn ;) hahaha.

I'm late to the party! Hi! I'm Victoria, 25, from Louisiana but currently a Texas resident. I'm an ex competitive barrel racer that mostly trains now. I have collected a little herd of 5 horses, all Paints and Quarter Horses. =D

Ummm. I went to the University of Louisiana at Monroe and am hoping to finish up my bachelors within 2 semesters. I'm a single mom of a 4 year old and a pretty devoted Horse Forum addict.

I do web design and am getting into making custom tack. Woo sparkles!!

Oh! And I LOVE color genetics. Hoping to one day be as good and know as much as our resident color gurus.
