Hello From Maryland!!

Hey All!!! My name is Samantha, and I'm from Maryland. Wasn't exactly happy with the previous forum I was on, so I did a google search and this one popped up. I chilled out in the shadows for a bit, and then decided to join.

A little about myself, I'm 28 years old, and currently in Paramedic school. Been training since May of last year, and finally in my field internship part. So if everything goes to plan, I will be graduating in December. Training keeps me pretty busy(40 to 50 hours a week), but when I do have time, I like to spend it with my horses more often than not. I own three, Jewel(13 year old Dutch Warmblood Mare), Dani(5 year old TB that's been inspected and approved Oldenburg), and Levario(Dani's 3 month old Oldenburg colt).

Other than that, I'm pretty simple. Pretty laid back, easy to get along with. Love curling up and watching movies for hours at a time. Anything I can do to allow my nerves to relax after my medic shifts is a good thing. Hope to get to know you all

-Sammie

Welcome, Sammie!

I used to go to EMT Training, so can imagine Paramedics program being 10 times more intense (I decided EMT was enough for me ).

What county are you in? What riding do you do?

Hi Sammie :)
I'm in Maryland too. I was wondering if a thread like this would open up.

Haha you're telling me!!! Took me two months to get my EMT certification. It's going to take me darn near two years to finish up my Paramedic Certification. It's no joke, and definitely not easy. I'm going to school in Delaware, so I'm currently training in two of the counties there(Kent and Sussex). I really really like Sussex, so much so that I'm looking at places to buy there.

I have been training hunters since I was 10, but got into dressage when I lived in Germany. So kind of bouncing back and forth right now. Jewel is my Hunter/Jumper horse, Dani has only been off the track for a year and a half, but will be sending her to a dressage barn to get a good foundation on the flat. I need her to get her balance before I even think about putting her over fences. Her son Levario has some time to prove to me as to what direction I wish to direct him to. But regardless, he will get quite a solid foundation in dressage so his flat is point on.

Hi Sammie! Welcome!

I grew up around EMT's, Paramedics and Firefighters as my mom was an EMT-B for the majority of my childhood. Still have a deep passion for that field, but I know it isn't what I -really- want to do. Fun to have friends who are in the field though!

I am currently in PA, about 3 hours from Delaware. We need a Mid-Atlantic HF get together, it seems!

Welcome!

I have said what I have said. I have not said what I have not said.
