That's great Almond!

I'm really happy right now. :))) I took a riding test at NHR (the therapeutic riding center for the disabled that I volunteer at), and passed in about 10 minutes. I was the only one who could get the horse in training to lope on the left lead I guess. So now I am the official Monday-Thursday exercise rider for Baby! (the horse)

Hope that doesn't sound like I'm bragging, because I really am not meaning to--I'm just happy!

I really want to get a job now:/.. Im at home 24/7 and my mom says that I can get a job where she works, at the hotel cleaning rooms, but that does not sound fun. I really am not a cleaner, nor a people person.. BUT I really want to get a job so I can buy my own stuff for my horse. I DONT want to work at mcdonalds in town.. but maybe at the local market.. THE ONLY DOWNFALL.. my dad will not let my mom take me to work.. or anything. Id have to find a way to get there.. and he wont let people take me. and he wont take me and wont let my mom take me either.. and he wont let me get my permit..:/ soo idk..

I have always wanted a job. My parents would be the ones giving me rides since I can't drive yet. I am hopefully gonna take driver's ed this year though.
But my parent's would always be the one giving me rides to places. I signed up for volunteering at our animal shelter and then my dad said I won't be able to do it because we have to travel a lot. HA! This is a first I have heard from him!
But I mean, I don't know. Maybe try having a friend give you a ride or something?? If it isn't too far away then maybe you could ride your bike there! (or your horse!!)

I'm on summer!! Finally. I'm looking for a better student working position. I seriously need to get my riding in gear.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

Honestly, if you're under sixteen it's hard to find a job. I tried looking everywhere in my town but nope, I had to wait until I was sixteen. Now I work at Sonic. You have a lot of restrictions on what hours and how many hours you can work when you're 15 as well.

Hi guys! I'm new to this website. (well, newly active...) I'm Ellie! I'm 18. (:
I'm sorry to barge in and interrupt the previous conversation, and this may have already been asked, but as teens, do you ride alone?
I'm afraid to because, well, horses always have their safety risks. But with my schedule it seems like the best time to ride this summer would be either alone or alone with a 10 year old... I still have to ask her dad about the rules on riding with her when the parents aren't home.
Anyway, pretend the little kid part isn't an option, and please share your thoughts on riding alone and with everyone either asleep or nobody home.
Also, do you ride with a helmet? I personally do, at least 98% of the time.

I ride alone sometimes, but somebody has to be home. Most of the time my Dad rides with me. And I always wear my helmet, the only time I didn't wear my helmet was when I rode Duke but with the horses I have now I always wear one. :)

I'm so sorry BB. :(

I ride alone almost every single day, granted, there are people living in the house on property, but i'll leave the property and hack down the road and do trails and stuff. I usually ALWAYS ride with a helmet, but if i just hop on Karma to go ride around the pastures at a walk bareback i'll wear a baseball cap...it's headgear (; haha

Also, hey everyone! Just kinda jumping into this post here...lol
