Red face Hello from England.

Hello! I'm Lorraine, I'm seventeen years old, soon to be eighteen in June, and as soon as I am eighteen, since I'll be getting quite a bit of money, I am planning on buying a horse! Me, my mother and my brother are going to share it to make things easier.
I have been riding for just over two years now. I don't know if that would class me as a beginner or what-not, but I do know a fair bit about riding and horse management. I loan a horse every Sunday from the stables where I ride. I would have one on loan permanently but there are no available horses for loan which are suitable for me.
The horse in my profile picture is Mindy. She is twelve years old, and is a rescued horse. She suffers from lamanitus and cussions disease. I am not sure if I have spelled them right lol. Other people say she's moody and difficult but I think it's just a matter of learning how to handle her. She doesn't get along well with other horses or many people for that matter, but I guess that's just because of her past. She is my baby, and even though I don't own her, I love her to bits. She has proved the vet wrong on two occasions where he has said the only option was to put her down. But her loving owner tried everything she possibly could before that, and now she is happy and working and loving it.
I would really like some friends who are also interested in horses, so message me :)
Obviously I do English riding as I'm English. I don't really understand Western riding, but I'm curious to learn.
So yeah. That's me :)

Thanks everyone! I would also like to know if there's a way to change my username? It's a very recent decision, as of yesterday, but I would like to be known as Sam from now on please.
I mainly like dressage but I can jump. It just scared me a bit.
The horse we're looking to get just has to be around 15hh. Even though that's a little bit bigger than what I like, but only by a couple of inches. I would love to have a gypsy cob, or any cob for that matter! But not many cobs are good at jumping (That I know of) And my brother would like a horse that's good at jumping.

From what I've heard, you don't get to change your user name. Since I moved, I'm no longer in CA, but I guess I just have to live w/it.

Oh!!!! That's what your username is! I thought it was some sort of bird call or an exotic breed of cow
