Hello from Northern Indiana!
Hey everyone! So here's my story...
I am 23 years old and just graduated from Ball State University with my Bachelor's degree. I've always had horses growing up but my parents sold them before I left for school. As a graduation present to myself I decided to get back into horses. We were in the process of putting up a fence and cleaning up the barn when I decided to go to a horse auction (just to look ;). I didn't want to get another horse until spring time, but then I came across "Gia" and couldn't pass her up. She is an 8 year old retired Standardbred who has spent her retired life as an Amish buggy horse. When I came across her she was in the "kill pen". If I wouldn't have bought her I'm scared to know where she would have been sent. I've had her home a week now and she is by far the SWEETEST mare I have ever met! However, I do not think she is broke to ride and so that was a main reason I joined this forum. I have never trained a horse before, so I want to make sure I do it right. I'm excited to visit with many of you and have people to ask questions that actually know what they are talking about! I love any and all advice people have and I will make sure to keep everyone updated about our process!
