Hello all! I've been reading and reading this thread and it seems like a great group. I'm 41, so I think I fit the age requirement!
I have four kids, my oldest boy is 21 and then three girls (God help me) 19, 13 and 11. I was raised in the US as a Navy brat, never had horses, never around horses and never thought of horses. My eldest daughter was horse crazy from the day she was born, it seems.
Long story short, marriage at 18, two kids, divorce, second marriage and two more kids later. I own a Clydesdale!!!
My daughter bought a horse in April to take with her to University, she's studying equine management. Super cool she has her horse on campus!! She boarded her horse before school and something in me clicked and fell in love with everything there!! The barn, the horses, the fresh air, the atmosphere....just everything.
So, March of this year I buy my Clydesdale mare. Her name is Shiloh, she's 11 and 16.2hh. The amusing thing is I'm only 5'2". I was also on a medication that made me gain about 70lbs, so getting on and getting off of her is quite a thing to see!!! Not very graceful in the least!
I've never owned a horse before and I've only been riding as long as I've had Shiloh, so if you are patient......I might have quite a few questions to ask at some point!
Hope to get to know you all!
