Hello, I am from Little Britain ( nothing like the comedy)

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.
Regards Lisa.

Hi! Welcome!
I'm fairly new too! I love this forum, as you can see, I keep posting all over the place! LOL!

My Mom tells me I was born loving horses! Hehe I'm 51yrs. Now... My Dad bought me my first horse when I was 12 and taught me how to ride and how to care for the horse. Unfortunately, he also sold them on my 16th birthday.

In Sept. 2005 my Mom bought me a horse. (I have arthritis and fibromalgia so it's difficult to work and have a steady income.) That horse didn't work out well, but I now have Christy! She is my dream horse. And I am lucky enough to be able to keep her in my backyard! We live on 2 1/2 acres, so there is room for a nice corral and run in shelter. I ride western and only do trail riding. I don't enjoy the stress of showing. I like to watch others, just as long as I don't have to do it.

This forum is absolutely totally addicting! LOL!

Hi Desertgal, thankyou for my welcome. You are so fortunate to have your horse stabled so near. I would love that, but alas property like that is much to expensive on our little island, mind you it must be where you are situated too, isn't it?
You lucky lady.
Your horse it beautiful.
Regards Lisa.

Thank you.

Property is terribly expensive right now. :( But when we bought the land and had a house built 12 yrs. Ago, it was very cheap!

12 yrs. Ago no one wanted to live out here, now, everyone wants to live out here! I liked it better before. We wanted to live in the country, away from the city... Now, the city is comming... Houses all over, they are paving the roads, putting in schools... Yuck!

We thought about moving, but can't find a place we like, that we can afford. So, I guess we are stuck here (for a while anyway.) It's very pretty, and I do like it, just not all the people, noise, and paved roads. I ride trail, on the dirt roads. Horses and pavement don't mix well. :( They are supposed to leave equistrian paths along one side of the road, but they arn't. Progress... I'm not crazy about it!

I would love to live where you are. I am one day going to convince my partner to sell up and move to the country too, I only want one little stable.......
Who knows what the future holds? You are right there is to much commercialism now.
Regards Lisa.
