Hello From Virginia!

Hi! I'm new to the Horse Forums, and I would like to introduce myself to the other members around here!

My favorite horse-sport is Thoroughbred racing, and the breed had stolen my heart! I love back-tracking their pedigrees.

Though, lately I've wanted to get to know about the other breeds' history. Especially, influential sires/broodmares, each story I hear always seems to fascinate me.

I live with my family right now, and while I can't take care of a horse. I plan to at least volunteer my time somewhere to a shelter, after I'm finished with school.

I'm still in a teen. So, I probably will have plenty of time to learn my "horses.” Right?

Thanks! I've always pictured VA having a fair string of horse-lovers! (LET THE HORSE-LOVING KIND RULE THE WORLD) LOL!

Another Virginian here. Yes, there are plenty of horses in VA, especially since the Virginia Horse Center is in Lexington, and is a major draw for a lot of breeds and shows.

I have 3 horses at the moment, two Arabians and a TB.

Welcome to the forum. There are a lot of great people here.

I LOVE the Lexington Horse Center, I just went for my first time last month. It was lovely.

Yourgirls, what part of VA are you in? I could recommend some places if you're interested.

I live in Virginia Beach, which is about 3 hours away from that Horse Center.

It does sounds interesting though. Can you please tell me more about it, or other places that are similar/closer?

Oh bummer, you're two hours from me. The Center is very unique and I honestly can't think of anywhere else that is even remotely similar. Beg your parents to take you one day, it's showing heaven!

Agreed!
Luckily I'm only about an hour and 15 minutes away from it! They do clinics and everything else there, it's amazing!
