    Hello from NY

    Hey there! I recently joined this forum because I am soon going to get a horse. Now to let you all know I am 15 years old and have been taking horse riding lessons since I was 5. My parents did not have a lot of money so I was never able to get a horse but now the stable owners decided to let me work there to earn a horse. On Saturday me and my sister (who has also been taking lessons) will pick out two horses from the stable and work for their keep.
    My parents are making more money than they were before so they can help pay for vet bills and such. I cannot explain to you how excited I am! If there is any information or tips that any of you want to give me on picking out my first horse go ahead and post!

    Don't rush into buying the first one you see :)

    There's also a great book out there called "buying your first horse"

    Welcome to the forum. There is a TON of information here as well as very helpful people.

    My advice would be to not underestimate the ugly horses. Sometimes that pretty horse is a few sandwiches shy of a picnic and the ugly fella in the corner is rock solid! Of course try before you buy, and let the BO help you in your decision. They usually know the horses better than most. Umm...... Just take your time. You'll know if you go in with an open mind and heart which horse is right.

    Best of luck to you!
