my dad bought my horses and he buys the grain but I pay for everything else, hay, vet, and any other stuff. i get my shoeing done for free by the guy i work for, he pays me to clean stalls so that pays for some stuff and i do odd jobs like mowing grass or whatever they need done for everything else

Hello there!
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. :)

Has anyone ever switched instructors/trainers before? I'm thinking about it (It will still be the same barn) and was wondering how you would go about doing it? Do you talk to the BO or one of the instructors?

I've changed barns twice because of my instructor.

I think the best course of action would be to talk to the BO.

I've left about four barns, but I've always lest the barn AND the instructor, not just the instructor. I would have a little talk with hour current and tell them you're switching or something.

Thanks! I'm going to try one more lesson with my current instructor, and then decide. I liked the other instructor a lot better when she taught my lesson because the other instructor was on vacation. The thing is, I need to ask if the other one can teach me eventing... GAHHHHHHHHH I HATE MAKING DECISIONS.

I've never had a trainer/instructor, so I can't help you with that one! I've also never boarded my horse anywhere... Good luck!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.
