It's really fun to watch her with her horse - she's already better than I ever was and more horse crazy too!! Anyway, welcome to the forum!
    Oh my gosh we could be long lost sisters!

    BTW, is that an Arab in your avatar? If it is, then I am really freaked out and my parents frogot to tell me about a twin I have, lol.

    Hey, welcome to the forum! We're a lot a like. I went to college for Equine Studies and thought that was a waste of money too. This was back in '95 and that was the last time I've been around horses. I also have two kids, my daughter is 9 and my son is 11. My daughter picked up on my love for horses, my son not so much. I'm hoping to get us in some lessons soon as I miss being around horses. I keep promising my kids that one day we will have horses because I never had the chance to own one myself. These forums have been filling in the void so to speak and I have had fun learning so much from others.

    Well then it looks like we're twins - LOL!! Yes that is our Arab mare, my daughters best friend. She is absolutely the best horse and it seems like everywhere we go people fall in love with her, even non-Arab people. She has a great personality. I dread the day my daughter out grows her. Of course by then she will be mellowed out and perfect for me . There is another pic or two in my album (profile page) and I will try and post more pictures soon however I'm a bit challenged in that dept.

    Do you have any other pics of your daughter and her horse?

    Hahaha, I graduated from UF with an equine studies degree in 95'. I'm telling you, I am finding more and more family members thanks to this website, lol. As much of a waste of money it was, it was super fun. Where else would one get collect a stallion for AI, stick an arm up a mares butt, and watch 2 yos in a pasture for 24 hrs for a animal behaviors class (well, less watching and more drinking but that's just semantics), lol.

    My daughter keeps asking me to ride with her, but for some reason I keep waving it off. I haven't been on a horse for 15 years and I don't know why I am so nervous about doing it again. I trained, showed, rode most of my life before graduating college. Maybe I'm scared I won't remember how and this picture in my daughters head of what an amazing horsewomen her mom is will be shattered. Silly, right?

    At my daughters barn there is this great group of women who ride once a month as part of their book club. They are in their 40's and 50's. Maybe one day I'll join them. :)

    Hahaha, my mother has some 'splainin' to do!

    When we moved to MI last year, I knew it would be pretty hard on my daughter so I looked around for a barn so she could take lessons. Because I am partial to Saddleseat, I looked for a barn that taught Saddleseat and found this Arab Farm where they do every style from saddleseat to western to huntseat to sidesaddle. And most importantly, they were so very nice and even though they are a bigger barn and do very well at shows, they were not that kind of stuck up competitive place that annoys the heck out of me. So Lilly (my daughter) has fallen in love with Arabs.

    She doesn't have a horse yet. The operative word being "yet", lol. I will say, the fee they charge us for using their horse for shows is ridiculous and I have a feeling it would almost be cheaper to have our own. Here are some other pictures of her at her first show this past June. Our laptop crashed and the only pictures on this computer are ones a friend of mine took at the show.

    You're right - that's too weird! We must be long lost sisters - we have too much in common!! My daughter started with hunt seat but has since found dressage and is totally is hooked!

    Your Lily is a lovely rider! Those pictures are really good. Thanks for sharing!
