Question What motivated you to join the Horse Forum?

Curious to hear the many reasons fellow forumers decided to join. Also, if you want, share how long you checked out the forum before joining. I'll share mine later.

I'm on a forum for great danes, so when I started taking riding lessons, I knew I'd learn a lot from a horse forum. And I have! I really love the discussion aspect - it's a great way to learn, when paired with individual research and taking lessons with a good instructor.

Joined the day I found it.

Belong to quite a few horse forums, some breed specific, some general, but use this one and one other the most.

Didn't look around at all, just jumped in.

I stumbled upon HF while looking something up quite some time ago. I just joined for snaps and giggles, lol.

You mean what motivated me to walk the miles and miles to the computer center through a howling blizzard, to fill out more questions and boxes than an application for a Green Card, to brave the ridiicule of millions while selecting a name with "Tiny" in it?

Oh, just got bored, I guess.

Well, I've had horses since I was 5. I always had mares, and I never had any sort of support with my horse hobby. My parents considered softball "my life". I went through more horses than a dealer. I hated it. I never had a horse that was good for me. That all changed this past Christmas. I hadn't had my own horse in almost three years, because the last one was wilder than a hair on a hog. But my boyfriend(fiancÚ now) talked my parents into surprising me with a horse for Christmas. I'll never forget that boy. He was my heart horse, my first gelding. We clicked instantly. I was in college 3 hours away, and I was NOT about to spend a day without Pie. So I loaded him up and took him to school with me :) I don't know what I'd have done without him!! Anyway, I didn't have anyone who supported me riding. So I found this forum where everyone loves horses! I could post pictures of my Pie, and I could be happy showing him off to people who wanted to see!.... I brought Pie home the weekend before I started to move things home from my dorm room so I wouldn't have to haul him with all my dorm stuff. When I brought all of my stuff home only a week later, I couldn't find Pie. I looked all over for him, looked for 3 hours. And when I found him he was dead. It killed me.. But having this forum, I've been able to recover from it a little bit at a time. And now I have a new gelding to post pictures of. Things are getting better, and I owe it to the people on this forum who post pictures and love their horses the way they do!

I forgot that I had even joined until this last fall when I got an email notification from here.

I logged on and then I got addicted..lol!
I have tried a couple other forums, this one is my favorite, everyone is pretty respuctful even during heated discussions. I had been another where folks would get right down nasty with one another.

I have also learned a lot from being on here, especially about other disciplines.

I initially joined to read & compare training methods. How many places can you talk horses (without someone saying "can't you talk about something else?) with people from so many walks of life and spread across the globe.
