    Hello! I'm coming to you guys from lovely, currently burning hot, sunny southern California. I guess you could call me a late starter when it comes to horses- I've only been riding about 2 years now, and I'm a college student. That's made it a lot harder getting into, since sometimes it's hard for me to afford it, especially compared to most of the people I know, but it makes me work harder than I would otherwise, and it's made it so rewarding.

    I ride a big, old, gorgeous school horse named Nate. He's not mine, and probably never will be, but I absolutely adore him and I love him to death either way (though I have heard a number of times things like, "your horse got out today", and "your horse needs to be clipped"). He's a Dutch Warmblood, somewhere in his 20's but acts way younger. He's teaching me to jump and we love it.

    I've been stalking this place for so long, I figured it was time to join and say hi.

    I completely understand how you feel.. Im a college student as well and I started riding about 4 years ago and then I bought my first horse shortly after during my senior year. It does get expensive I've paid for every bit of it myself but I really enjoy spending money on her.. as the saying goes.. "Whoever said money can't buy happiness, didnt know where to buy horses". I enjoy having something to work for. I often regret not being able to start at an early age like most riders as I feel I would know much more and be a much better rider but it is a learning path that never ends. :) Anyways.. welcome
