I have just recently discovered this forum and I really love it. So far everybody has been so honest, open and friendly. Thankyou.
I remember the first time that I watched a woman riding a horse when I was very young. She was galloping through the mud banks as I gazed at her from the shore. I can even remember the wind blowing my hair in my face and the sand between my toes, I think I was around 7, I can still see it now, almost like it was yesterday. I also remember feeling exhilerated, acknowledging the power, freedom it represented and knowing that someday that would be me. After all it is not an unattainable dream is it, perhaps a grand commitment and a costly one, but not unreachable.
Finally I have reached it, the in time my life when I can spare the pennies and commit myself to such a responsibilty. I have been retaking lessons for just under a year now and have been searching continuously for a compatable horse share, after all I am only a novice rider so I need something rather bombproof. I am sharing intially just to test the waters and learn the ropes so to speak.
It is all so exciting. Well it is nice to meet you all and now that my introduction is over let me hear from you all, tell me when you first knew in your heart when you were definitely going to own your own horse, trust me I really am intrigued.
