    The moment when you might get a new horse.

    I am so happy! I might get my first horse soon! He is a absolute gentleman. Anyone else have stories about getting there first horse? Advice would be appreciated.

    Pictures!

    And ask advice all the time. Horses can be pretty tricky to own!

    I tend to not jump in the saddle right away but take time to get to know them on the ground first. I do groundwork in hand and in the round pen and sometimes work on join up.

    My first horse was given to me because my friend couldn't afford him on her feed bill anymore and I had essentially retrained him from the ground to saddle after his previous owners ruined him. He wasn't what I would have picked for myself (a 14.2hh bright bay Arab/saddlebred cross gelding with almost every bad habit you can imagine), but he was my heart horse. He would do things for me he wouldn't for anyone else. He was a booger most of the time, but loved kids and, once you gained his trust, he wanted to please. I still miss him immensely.

    As Copperhead said, don't be afraid to ask questions and advice.

    Note: Don't wait til the night before you get your boy to run to tack shop and buy a boatload of things....creates more stress!

    Read everything you can and ask questions. Horses are never ending learning. Congrats!

    I have a halter and a lead rope. Brushes I am getting soon. Still not completely confirmed but getting there. Anyone want to take a guess on his breed? Was told he is either a Missouri fox trotter or a peruvian but he doesn't gait like one so most probably a fox trotter.
