    Agreed! I've met a few folks in real life, talked on the phone with a few, can say that I have made a lot of new horse friends through the forum. Even the ones I've not truly met, they still feel like friends. There are a lot of folks on here that I would love to have a bonfire and a few drinks with. We wouldn't run out of things to talk about, that's for sure!

    I came across it by accident when looking for answers for my horsie questions. Did a lot of reading before joining. I love how helpful everyone is!

    Had to look up my first threads so I could remember! I was twelve at the time, and looking for answers regarding my Paso's gaits. Looking back at those posts, I can't even believe it was me! I wouldn't have known what an English saddle was if it hit me in the head.

I know this site and the people on it, I know who's advice to trust and who's to ignore and, even though we have our rough spots, it really does feel a lot like a family here.
    I'm in the same boat, smrobs. I'm a member of a few other equine forums that just don't hold my interest, so I primarily use them for the classifieds sections. I try to socialize and get to know the members on other forums, but it's not the same.

    Plus, the color scheme here is brighter and happier than other horse forums.
    Wallaby, smrobs and Cinder like this.

    I googled "good horse stories and poems" and the story "dandilions" came up. I read the stories for a couple weeks untill I noticed the rest of the forum because I had only that section saved in my favorites. I didnt join for awhile after that.

    I think I joined about something with Dreamer... maybe her thrush? I can't remember. At all. But I have had fun here, I mainly lurk here since I'm a beginner, but I've learned way too much about grooming products and whatnot.. I still use my personal trainer for training/riding critiques tho XD
