Hello, My name is Trevor. I am from a small town in Dover, Pennsylvania. The first time I was ever on the back of a horse was when I was 2 years old. From that moment on I was with them from the age of 2-19. Sadly, with a family fall out I had to move out. I still have gone on paid trail rides and such but it's not the same as horse ownership. I longed for the days that I could once again share my life with a horse of my own. FINALLY after a long 10 years I am ready emotionally and financially.
We (my partner and I) plan on breaking ground on our new barn in Spring of 2014. Decided it would be a good idea to get on the forums and see what all has changed in the horse world and reeducate myself on them.
Welcome to the forum! 10 years is a long time of waiting, I bet you're very excited to finally get your own horse again! Are you already looking?
Thank you for the welcome.
YES! I am very excited. I can hardly control myself. I have been looking here and there to get an idea of prices and what not. To answer the question more directly, No, not seriously looking right now ONLY because we don't have the barn fully built yet. The frame work is up but that's about it. We are guessing that we will have it completed by early/mid spring of this year. (Hoping for a mild winter here in pa.)
I learned many things through horse forums. Some of that knowledge changed the way I do things with my horses. Hope you'll share your horse adventures with us, from getting the stable organized to finding the right horses.
