    Hey y'all, I've been viewing this forum for a while and thought I'd join in! I'm 17 years old and live in Washington. I haven't been in love with horses for very long, but I've always liked them. My great great grandpa, great grandpa, and grandpa were pioneers and ranchers in my area, unfortunately my parents aren't horse people. I've grown up riding with my cousin, and he got me really into horses. I will be starting riding lessons this month and am really excited! And want to take my horsemanship skills to the next level. I don't own a horse, and I'm not really in the situation to own one with college and all that, but I will definitely own horses someday! I'm talking to my local vet and seeing if he has any clients that need their horses exercised and he said he does and he'll get back to me, so that's got me excited too. Besides horses I'm really into hunting and guns. I've been collecting guns for a long time and mainly collect vintage cowboy firearms from the 1800's, and I shoot competition as well. Thinking about getting into some cowboy mounted shooting, so that's me.

    I was brought up in a small town, and that's where I became fond of horses. Ended up getting a job and buying myself a 4 year old Chestnut Thoroughbred. :)

    Umm americancowboy is banned. That was quick. I don't think I am going to get foxy. Financially speaking it doesn't seem like such a good idea. Oh well, I waited before ,i can wait some more.

    I haven't ever seen this thread, but I'll bite.

    I am 16, turning 17 in June and I currently own a quarter horse who is for sale. I raised this horse from a yearling and love him with all my heart, but I am content with my decision to sell because it is absolutely the best decision for the both of is. I really love dressage and ride as often as I can. I have a car now, which is makes being 16 so awesome, and allows me to ride much more, and getting a job last summer as a working student was amazing. Being in the IB program now, I am basically chained to a desk, but I do love it. I basically have just choose school and horses over any social life what so ever. Is anyone else here in IB?

    I may be buying a PSG warmblood gelding and show him 3rd and 4th this year, and then PSG next, and I am ecstatic! It would be incredible.

    I am definitely subbing this thread and keeping track with you guys!

    LMDB, I'm going through something like that too! I have to give up horseback riding for a few weeks until I can reschedule my lesson because I'm doing Crew and I have school :/ It really sucks but I don't own so its ok!

    Yeah! I understand!

    I had to cut back riding a lot for a little while and it was hard to figure out how to manage my time, but it will be really worth it because I won't have to take my freshman year of college, and get to graduate in 3 years

    What discipline do you ride?

    Hey everyone, I haven't posted in a while but I've been lurking!

    Hey DrummerBoy!

    Sorry about that, Almond Joy and Drummer Boy. That really sucks! I hate it when I have to stop riding for a while for whatever reason.

    That's really too bad Horsecrazygirl , I'm sorry. Had kinda the same thing happen to me, recently, kinda. I found a beautiful paint horse for sale in my area, he's 5 years old, trained in team penning and barrel racing, and is $1300. Which isn't too bad of price. My parents acted on board and we went and saw the horse and really loved him. Then after getting me excited pulled out the "Well with college and stuff it inst practical." . I told them I'm willing to get a job and pay for the horse completely myself and they said "If you're goin to get a job then that money needs to go into a college fund." I sick and tired of hearing about college! I know it's important and stuff and I'm going to go, but everytime I want to do something I can't or am limited because of "college"! Anyway Again, sorry to hear that HCG, just keep looking up
