Just joined the forum, and wanted to introduce myself.

I'm obviously another horse Dad. About 1.5 years ago, my youngest daughter (13) was able to convince my wife and I to take lessons. I swore we'd never own a horse. After seeing her huge and constant smiles while on, or simply near, horses, we're currently looking for a horse.

I'm looking forward to being a giant sponge as I learn more about horses.

So far it has been a good use of money on a smiles per $ basis.

This is so great of you to join the forum :)
My parents would never even watch me ride a horse, let alone join a forum to learn more!

I agree that it's very commendable for you to learn what you can about horses for your daughter. Knowledge is power, and you'll be better prepared for all the things that are bound to be put in front of you.

It's also definitely something y'all can share together. Riding with my daughter is always the best part of my day, not to you need to ride, but her joy can surely be best enjoyed if you are a part of it.

Hopefully y'all can bond and enjoy this part of her life together.

So, you are looking for a horse for your daughter,or something the family will share? A horse for lessons or trailriding or both?

It will be a horse for her riding English, jumping and local trails.

She would like to do eventing, eventually.

You might as well just start looking for a second the rest of the family can use as well, lol. As soon as my parents were able to start learning with me, they were hooked!!! And my dad was DEAD set on us never getting horses.

They haven't NOT had a horse for themselves in the last 25 years;). Now they get to enjoy the horses with their grandkids.

I waiting for my wife or older daughter to start dropping hints.

Unfortunately, my older daughter seems to be allergic to horses. :(
