My name is Steph, and I'm new to these forums. Ever since I can remember I've loved horses, but unfortunately my family doesn't have the money to own one, although I would love to. When I'm older, I've "vowed" to get one.
My uncle owns a few horses, and he's offered to take me out riding with him someday. One of our close family friends has a couple of horses at his farm that I love to visit in the holidays and on the weekends: Mango (an appaloosa x thoroughbred mare) and Clancy (a sheltland pony). There are also a couple of horses down the road that I like to steal a pat from if I go for a bike ride or take my dog for a walk. Every school holidays I try go on the one day holiday program that's offered by one of our local riding places. They provide us with a whole day of horse riding: some activities in the arena in the morning and a trail ride in the Australian bush the afternoon. It's fantastic!
Seeing I can't have a horse, my goal is to somehow get involved with them. Whether it's riding lessons or getting a job at a stable/riding school, I don't care. I've loved horses for so long and I want to have more to do with them.
My journey starts right here right now, and I hope the people on this forum can help me along the way.
Thanks so much for reading my novel of an introduction. I hope I don't come across as needy, know-it-all or overconfident.
