    Iv been waiting for some one to start this thread but I thought the "teen talk" had it coverd.
    Im shanda and im 17. I have to lovley grade mares. I got into horses because my family are horse traders, ( the good kind though). Im definitely not one of them) Iv been riding about 7 years now and ill never be without a horse!
    I have another question: how did yall get your first horse? Tell us about him/her?

    I got my first horse christmas 2005 he was a 5 day old colt... we kept the mare 8 months.. she tought me to ride, when the colt was weaned she had to go and I begged for her for 2 years and got her for my 13th birthday ( I consider her my first horse)

    Alli is my first horse (well technically I don't own her, but she's on loan to me for three years and I own her in every way that matters XD ) I first met her in November 2010 when I was shareing lifts with her owner so I could do my Stage 1. I was offered to ride Allis Dam and get her back into work. I did but what I really wanted to do was back the crazy filly :) So that's what I did!

    Started leading + lunging and getting to know her. Got her saddled and bridled but didn't know where to go from there so I officially got her on loan in july 2011, took her to a trainer where I could do the work with her too and that's when her riding career started!! A year later, she is my heart horse and I seriously can't imagine life with out her <3

    Country Boy, you say your horse bolts as soon as her sees the pipe come out. Could you leave it out for a few das so he gets used to its presence? Just leave it in a coil in the corner, feed him, groom him etc next to it. Then get him used to you touching it, then desensitize him once he realises it isnt a coiled snake or something. Don't try using water until he is happy being around it.
    Or you could lead him back and forth past it, each time he should get closer and closer. When he's pratically walking on it,do the same thing with someone holding it, then with someone holding it and a gentle trickle coming from it. Get him to walk through a stream and go from his feet up from there. These are what I would try :)

    I got my first horse bullet when I was 6. My dad and sister's horses had bred and Bullet was born. He has my birthday present from
    My sister who had the mare. I'd ridden before many times with my dad and sister but this was my first horse. I've raised and trained him ever since.

    Hey guys!
    I've been riding horses since I was 3, so for about 10 and a half years now.
    I grew up around cattle and horses and my love for both as since grown. My grandpa owns a ranch, so if I wanted to help I had to ride. My first horse was the sweetest balck QH gelding. I learned all I know about horses while atop him.
    I've never taken formal lessons and have never ownedva horse of my own, though I consider my grandpas horse's my horses too.

    At the beginning of one of my riding lessons back in September (I think..) My riding instructor told me that she knew of a black and white pinto gaming horse for sale. Well, that's all I thought of during my lesson, and on the ride home all I talked about was this horse and how I wanted to see it.

    Both of my parents thought they were going to have to put up with me for a few weeks, and then I would shut up about getting a horse. I can't remember exactly why, but somehow I was able to peak their interest. My mom called the owner and we found out he was boarded 5 minutes away from our house, and that we could keep boarding him there! And the place was right next to the fairgrounds (that's where I ride, actually) so we wouldn't need a trailer to get to shows! The board was reasonably priced, and I had just gotten a job a couple months before so I could afford him! And now, he's mine

    How many of you guys have to pay for your horse(s) on your own?

    Kittersrox - if I ever get my own horse, I have to pay for everything. The horse, the vet, the food, the tack, the boarding fee, and I have to pay for gas so I can go see my horse.

    Welcome QhCowKid!

    I don't pay for my horses because I don't have a job. I work on the ranch and help my dad when he goes to visit his clients. He's an equine vet!!!

    I try to pay for Alli's stuff, but my job isn't exactly reliable :/ Over summer I do ok as my job needs summer workers and allis feed costs about a tenner a month, by the end of winter I have no money again and mum ends up paying for her. I try to pay her back when I can... I really need a regular job!!

    What kind of jobs do you guys do that pay for the ponies, as well as leaving time for school and riding?? I need some ideas!
