Just saying Hey!

I'm really hoping this is the proper place for a breif introduction.

Thought I would post a little introduction, I have been a member of another horse forum for the last 8 years but in the last while the new members have become quite rude and disrepectful - so I am hoping to make some new friends and offer solid advice where I can.

I'm from Ontario, Canada. I work as a veterinary technologist in a small animal clinic. I am working very hard to obtain a registered status with the province. I have been riding for at least 10 years now, doing everything from jumpers, dressage, western pleasure and trail rididing. I spent about 7 years working under a local trainer who uses a philosophy developed by the great horseman Ray Hunt. I have an interest in going "back to school" and taking a course to become a certified barefoot trimmer. There is a long story behind that, but that and rehabilitation have become a passion of mine.

I do have a few critters of my own. I have 3 hamsters (2 dwarf, 1 syrian), and my 11 year old Quarter Horse gelding Riley. He's the chestnut in my profile photo. I bought that horse as a 6 year old green broke and he was to be just a project horse - he was rude - trained him and bonded. We're inseperatable and only 4 people can ride him. He and I have been through it all - navicular problems, laminitis, stifle injuries, tendon injuries. He is the reason I am a technologist with a interest in rehabilitation and natural hoof trimming. I couldn't imagine a life without him.

I hope to meet some new people, exchange some helpful information

Welcome! ^.^ Sounds like you've been through a lot!

It's been a long road, but without him, I'd be lost career wise. I'll need to dig out more photo's of him.

Also, not sure how I missed the "Meet the Community" section? Haha, not sure what happened there. My bad!

Glad you found your way here. Do you know the Canadian trianer Jonathan Field? I dont' know if he trained under Ray, probably not becasue he is too young. My trainer also spent time with Ray and one of Ray's students, Harry Whitney. I continue to read and reread "True Horsemanship through Feel" and wish that I had access to a really good trainer on a more regular basis.

I don't recognize the name, what city is he out of?

I love Ray Hunt and I wish I could have attended one of his clinics, I don't have any of his books but I have a wonderful resource of a local trainer who uses his philoosphies and its been the foundation to my riding and ground work with horses.
