Hello From BC, Canada

Hi, Everyone


I'm going to be buying a horse next spring. I've not ridden in the last 25yres except for a few trail rides. I have enough land to have a horse on so I'm concerned with fencing and some type of barn for him/her to be in at night. It's can get to -40 Celsius here so it can be really cold.

I learned to ride English but I'm interested in Trail Riding I live in a rural area and I can just walk out from my yard into the country side. I'm looking forward to learning from everyone's posts.

I'm not ready yet to own a horse because I have to get fencing and a shelter up. I'll be taking some natural horsemanship classes. I think it's a good idea to take some classes to make sure my basic knowledge is sound. I've been watching some Perelli (sp?) work with horses on youtube and I love the connection btw the horses and the riders I see. There is a place about an hour and half from me that teaches on those principles.

I'm thinking Quarter horse five years old about 15hh. I have a four and a five year old who would like to ride to. So the disposition is more important then breed to me.

I'm so excited though I can't wait. We will be doing the fencing this summer, still though I just feel like I should wait till next spring and do some riding between now and then so I'm not so green when I get him/her.

Thanks for the welcomes.

Jamie

Welcome from the Paint mares. Of course I'm biased, but a think QH/Paints have the sweetest dispositions....ours absolutely love kids.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
