My name is Jillian and I am 18 years old. I'm really glad this thread was created as I didn't want to intrude on the 20-somethings thread. I'm glad I'll have some other horse enthusiasts to talk to that are in my age group. :)
How did you get into horses?
I've always had a passion for horses ever since I was young. I collected Breyers, My Little Ponies and any other horse related object I could find. I've always wanted my own pony but when you live in town, you don't exactly have enough room to house a horse. I remember asking my parents for riding lessons when I was eleven and after a few months of begging, they agreed to sign me up for some. However, within two years of riding I was in two very bad horse-related accidents that really knocked my confidence down. My parents discouraged me from riding and would no longer pay for my lessons.
I haven't ridden a horse in about 3 years. But, I just recently got a job at a nearby pet-store so I am hoping to take lessons once again this summer at a new barn. :)
