Nice. No need to stress about if sunny should go.

Man, we have the same goals in life. I want to be an equine vet and I want my own ranch later down the line. I get to follow around my father who's an equine vet. Sadly A&M is one of the only good vet school in Texas.

That sucks! My ways of not going to A&M are getting smaller and smaller. My dad went to equine vet school at Louisville but, their's no way we could afford to send me and my sister there. Oh well

I want to be an equine vet too!!! I had to take planning this year and it just made me so excited about it!!! But I live in Canada so my choices of schools are slim and it's really hard!! Plus I live in the city soo I can't follow around my local vet :( but some how I promise you I will make it!!!!

Oh and I want my own ranch too, my best friend and boyfriends grandma has one ( I ride her horses) and I got to go up there with them and it was Amazing!!!!!! She has her cattle and hay fields and everything Nd its just my dream! I definitely don't belong where I'm living right now! It's almost stressful to live here right now!!!

OMG!! I want to be an equine vet, too!!! I want to own my own ranch more, though... we'll see how that works out. My aunt AND my mom have always wanted to own a ranch, too, so I might have a little bit of help there... ;) My biggest dream, though, is to make it to the NFR on a horse that I raised and trained. :)))))) I always go by advice that Sue Smith gave me once: "Dream big & ride harder!"

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

When my trainer came in and saw me sit up and look really pale and watery eyed, she knew somthing was wrong. I had a few of my friends try to carry me to a car to take me from the stables to my room as I couldnt walk. Two of them picked me up and I couldn't support my head and neck. I fainted/fitted on the ground. I was laying on the ground with my friends arounf me, trying to get me to respond but I couldn't find the words. I couldn't open my eyes and tears we streaming down my face and I was hyperventilating. Bad! I remember loosing all feeling in my face and hands due to this and freaking out because I didnt know what was happening. This is where I blacked out completely and lost all sense of what was going on around me. My friends carryied me to my trainers car while I was still hyperventilating and crying. So here I was in the front seat of my trainers car, my friend in the seat behind me holding my head up, my trainer holding my hand while driving and my hyperventialting and crying. I arrived at the hospital and waited there for 4 hours. I calmed down after about an hour and got some sense back. I got back to college not long ago and talked to one of my friends. Apparently while I was on the ground, I was screaming for them not to take me to the hospital and wouldnt get my vest on so that I could be warmer. She said that it was the most scariest thing she and my other friends had ever seen and that my trainer was in tears. I can't remember them carrying me to the car, or what happend before I lost it all. I can't belive this happened. It was such a scarey experience and I am so so glad that my friends and my lovely trainer was there to help me when I needed it most. Without them I may not have gotten off as easy.

Sorry about the novel guys

Can't imagine how scary that must've been. Glad to hear that you had some great people by your side to take care of you.

How are you feeling now?

I used to live near the Inland of Australia with my family Friends, A grey pony was left in a paddock to die or just never ridden or fed, so my family friends looked after it and rode it I got to be around it and since than I loved horses. I saw some other horses while in Queensland when I was 10 some old man who lived in a bush hut invited us inside and showed us his tb/stock horse. I've never been afraid of horses and always through my whole life since 8 persisted to ride until I ran out of money and now I have a lease horse who I ride 3 times a week and pay $ 45. Im the only person at my school to do Equine Industry so I get to ride lessons through that every while and than. This week im getting a benefit for money because I live away from home, so $ 200 a week can cover my horse addiction XD and I can buy some nice things for my lease horse.
