Smile Hello from California!

Hello everyone! My name is Jessenia (Jessie for short), and I'm a 16 year old from California (duh! lol) I've always had a passion for horses, and ever since I was little I've had a need to be around them. I used to ask to go horse back riding for my birthday when I was young, but eventually my mom said it was about time I stopped being so obsessed with such things. I still have a passion for horses, and animals in general. I currently own one sun conure and four budgies. They are very entertaining, and I love them to bits! I still feel the need to be around horses though! Well my family might be moving to a new house (It'll be around 2-4 acres) and my dad said I could get a horse if it was free! Well I know that most people wouldnt willingly rehome their beloved horse with a novice rider like me for free, so I've decided to start saving money and have gotten a job. I really cant wait until I can get a horse! Whenever I go to my friends house I always bug them to ride theirs (I think they get tired of it sometimes :P) I've been researching horses for years (ever since I had a computer available, which is when I was about 6 years old). I really want to get a horse that is good for running long distance, and being able to jump very well. I know its dependent on the horses, but are there any breeds that you guys could recommend? Well to be more clear, these are the traits I want in a horse: Able to jump Can run long distance Not really a draft type horse (I'm only 112 pounds and chances are my older sister will be riding my horse. She is only 90 pounds :P) A breed known for being spirited I would like to have a horse in some kind of paint color Also I would like one that looks somewhat regal I'm not looking for a purebred, but breeds to go off of, using these traits, would be really helpful :) Also Any horse I will be getting, my dad has decided I have to learn to ride on my own. (We will be living really far out away from horse centers so it would be torturous and unfair to haul a horse through the desert every week like that.) I will be graduating high school this year and will be commuting to college or possibly even take online classes. So any horse I get will most likely be with me for the rest of its life (I have never given away any of my animals and probably never will :) ) Sorry for rambling so much, I hope I get to know you all! Any advise is well appreciated :)

Welcome to a fellow Californian! Hope you find all the help you need here!

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
