Now on to horses, I do not own a horse but here is my story:
I picked up English riding last November. Before That I had a few western lessons, except now, I'm all English. I had a love of horses since I was a young girl, but I had to wait till I could pay for lessons for myself before I could pick up riding. So a few weeks before my 16th birthday I officially started riding! I received my certificate the other day and am now Equine Canada Learn to Ride LV1 certified. That is fancy for I passed Kindergarten. My parents arn't in a financial situation to buy me a horse, but after about 6 months into me riding they accepted it's not a phase, and told me they wish they could buy me a horse or help me pay for things. So now I count down the days and am creating a fund that hopefully by the time I finish school and pay of loans, I'll have enough in my fund for a good horse, and will be making enough for proper care and for showing.
I am looking into going into massage for dogs and horses once I graduate highschool (which will be this year). If anyone knows anything about it, I'd like to hear from you!
