    Aussie Newbie

    Hey, I'm from Brisbane. I ride and work at a local stables - be my dream job if the pay was better!!

    I don't own my own horse - unfortunately i'm too broke for that!

    Up until recently I was leasing a 15hh 18yo bay stockhorse gelding, but he now has to be sold due to his owner not having enough room. (if you're interested, let me know!)

    At work, there's a couple of horses that are pretty special to me - Calypso, who's been through a lot with me and we've taught each other a lot. She's a fairly old 14.3hh palomino with a very big heart. I don't ride her very much anymore due to her not being able to do the work, but we do go for the odd swim or a quiet bareback hack once in a while, and I make sure she gets a decent grooming whenever I can!!

    There's also Trigger. She's been abused in the past, but we're slowly working past her fear of, well, EVERYTHING!! She's also a palomino (no idea what it is about this colour, I just seem to fall in love with them!) but a lot younger than calypso. I've posted a question about her already - i'm having trouble getting her working well in a bridle, so any help is very much wanted! She's a fast learner, and i've had a lot of fun with this girl already =]

    I don't have much of a life other than the horses - well, nothing that COUNTS anyway! Last year of school (finally!). My horses are my life. I can't imagine not having them there.

    Hello Helen,
    I am new also, old gal to young gal-having not much of a life except horses can be a very good thing! I applaud you for helping with an abused animal. Its hard work but worth it all when you finally get the forward momentum going and make a breakthrough. Hopefully you will have many. Best of luck to you.
