Welcome as well!!! Iíve seen your pics, your mare is just beautiful!
I really am starting from the ground up. I had a friend who had horses when I was younger, and even before that when I was a child, I would always pretend to have a horse. LOL I can still remember riding the LP tank as if it were a horse
I donít plan on getting a horse any time soon. It would be at least a year if not two out. I have a lot to learn, and am willing to put all my effort into doing so. Boarding a horse in a stable is a very good idea, thank you for that. I was at a stable on Friday, it was a ways away from me. I saw a beautiful black draft of some type. Her name was Molly, from what Iíve heard her owner spends little time with her. I have wondered about maybe leasing after getting a few lessons under my belt, it would be nice to lease her.
At this point, Im really just interested in pleasure riding. I think that is only because Im not educated enough about dressage and other disciplines to know otherwise. Maybe after a little time I will change my mind, but for now, pleasure, trail riding and such is what Im most interested in.
I am volunteering at the stable so I can completely understand what kind of work owning a horse entails. Im not afraid of getting my hands dirty. It may turn out that owning a horse isnít for me, and maybe leasing is the way to go? Im not completely sure, which is why starting with ground work is really the most responsible thing to do.
