I don't know if too many people generally browse this section from experience with other forums, but I figure it's a good idea to start with a post here.
Hi, I'm Dominique. I'm 14 years old and I live in the wonderful land called New Jersey, USA. I don't have a lot of experience with horses so I'm here to learn what I can. Last summer I went to horseback riding camp for a week and I loved every minute of it. I have plans to return next summer for twice as long and whenever my schedule opens up (lol) take a few lessons at a stable I managed to locate nearby. All I can do right now is trot in Western.
I have an obsession with horses and really all other critters. Animals are my life. My dream is to some day have a small ranch in Kentucky and work as a veterinarian. My dad makes fun of me sometimes... he can't believe that I would want to stick my hand up cows' butts for a living.
He doesn't understand how serious I am. Right now I enjoy the company of a beagle and a guinea pig, although I enjoy owning bettas. (My poor Jack Frost Pancake unfortunately died from dropsy recently. Once I have the tank disinfected and cycled I'll have another.) I think that's all you need to know about me right now.
