Question Hi from Australia!


I'm Toni, 15 years old and live in Perth. But moving to Victoria in 4 days. I can't wait.

I have loved horses all my life but my family has just never had enough money to get one. I used to ride my aunties horses, but that was about 5 years ago. When I move to Victoria I finally get to get some horses.

Anyone else here from Victoria, Australia?
I'd love to meet new people

Anyone have any tips for me for getting my first horse?
I'm a nervous beginner.


Suddenly I forgot how to speak.
Hopeless, breathless, baby can't you see.

Hi and welcome. Hope that you've a horse of your own in some day.

Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Hope you enjoy the forum!

Hi and welcome to the forum! Moving and getting a horse - what a great thrill!

As for tips on getting a horse, I would strongly advise getting acquainted at a stable in your new area. If you can get a job and some lessons there it will give you some great experience as to what discipline you want to follow and what kind of horse you need - as well as learning how to take care of one.

Good luck with your move!

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
