Hey Everyone!

I've been riding for several months, taking weekly riding lessons. I love horses and hope to own one someday. Being around horses puts me in a great mood for the whole day. I came to this horse forum, so that I can talk about horses with others that share the same passion. My family and friends never want to talk about them and I don't want to drive them crazy. This looks like a wonderful forum that is full of great, knowledgeable people. I have many questions, being a beginner rider and I hope that I can learn a lot.

Welcome to the forum.

Most of us have probably been there, no one to talk horse with.
Totally understand. My family knows nothing about horses other than they are something I seem to spend way too much money on.

Lessons are a great way to get started with horses. What style riding are you taking?

Welcome to the forum! Fortunately, my sister has horses and we talk to our hearts content. Unfortunately, she lives on the west coast and me on the gulf coast! You'll definitely get a broad spectrum of views, ideas and tips.

Welcome. Plenty of other horse nutz here to converse with. I too, don't have family who like horses, so I have to find outside sources.

Am I the only one who thought of Dr. Nick from the Simpsons when I saw the title of this thread? Hey Everybody! Probably.... I'll go back to my corner now.....

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Thank you! My friends don't seem to get that I'd rather spend money on horses than clothes and makeup. I take Western riding lessons, but I'd like to be able to ride both styles in the future. Western just suits me better than English.

Thanks! You are so lucky to have someone close that shares the same interests. I wish my sisters were into horses, but they'd rather talk about boys.

Thanks! I was just messing around on the internet looking up horse stuff and this forum popped up. Looked through the threads for a couple of days and decided that I should just make an account. So glad I did! You guys sound like nice folks.

Have no clue who Dr. Nick is, but now I'm going to look him up. Haha

Thanks! Yeah I'm really excited about owning a horse, but for now I just want to get as much experience riding all kinds. I probably wont own a horse for a couple of years. I want to finish college and get my life together first.
