    Question Learning the Basics

    Ok, so I've been taking riding lessons for a few years, and since I'm approaching my 18th birthday and collage, I want to start learning about actual horse care. The problem is, all the horse places I can find only offer riding lessons. I do have an aunt who owns a horse, but she's usually gone all day and doesn't have time to teach me anything. Any suggestions?

    I took a lot of riding lessons as well. It's kind of a crash course imo. I've been on this forum trying to learn and i've been reading a few books. I had an injury a month after I got my horses so that was a crash course as well.

    Hey, theres endless amounts of info online from basic tips to advice on serious issues, invest in some good books and if you really want some pratical experience for your life with horses voluenteering at your local vets even 1or2 days a week, no vetinary pratice would turn away a voluenteer that has experience around large animals and is willing to get stuck in and help wherever they can, this could be really helpful and interesting especailly if its an equine vet .. if not you could maybe see if you were able to go out on calls with the vets that are going to see large animals.
    Good luck
