Talking Hello Internet World!

Hi! You can call me Dlilly. That is just a nick-name I go by online. I prefer to keep personal info to myself. I will first tell you about the horsey stuff, then I'll start talking about my pets. I'll try to keep this short, but I'm making no promises!

When I lived in the suburbs, I was horse crazy. I had like over 50 model horses, and really wanted to take lessons! I probably wasn't as nutty as some horse lovers though. I was pretty sane. (I know I know, I'll get on with the story!) There were no places for me to ride there. Once I moved into the country, I was sure I would be able to ride horses since they were everywhere! It took us a few months to actually finally find a close equestrian center. T.T

We found an equestrian center that was only 5/10ish minutes away! What I really loved about it was that it is casual. You didn't need to buy any special clothing or anything. The instructor was awesome too! She always made sure I felt safe. After my first lesson, she asked me if I wanted to help with the therapy riding. I wasn't too sure what I would be doing, and I was a bit worried I would mess up.

That was 2 years ago. I have gone to Special Olympics twice with them, and I volunteer weekly with therapy riding. I have taken an unplanned 3 month break from riding though. I'm on a drill team now, so I will be riding much more. I still feel like a beginner even though I've been riding for 2 years now. I can walk and trot on my own. I will keep on trying to improve my riding skills. I'm in no rush.

My family has 3 goats, 3 dogs, 3 cats, 4 turkeys, 1 bunny and a bunch of chickens. I only own my bunny and one of the dogs. I am seriously addicted to dog agility! I'm starting agility classes in December with the family dog. I'm doing carting foundation training with my dog. I also have a foster Beagle. We are soon going to get some dairy goats. It is pretty crazy at my house!

I joined this forum because I would like to buy my own horse. I want to do extra extra research, and talk to other horse owners while I plan everything out. I think this should be a great place to start!

your life sounds pretty darn nice. I wanted animals all my young life, but we had only cats and dogs. So, now that I am old, I get to ride regularly. Dreams do come true!
