Here is a little about me:
My name is Kirsten. I live in Oregon but I'm going to school in Washington at the moment for dog grooming. I, of course, love horses. At the moment I don't own one but I will be looking in about 2 months when I'm done with school.
I have riding since I was 11, doing lessons and such first english(meh) then western(yeah!). I got a horse in high school. Turns out my trainer/barn owner/breeder of the horse thought it would be great for me to get a crazy 3 year old. I was too uneducated to think differently and trusted her. After a year long fight with the gelding and few hospital visits I sold him. I didn't ride for like 2 years has I tried to scrape the remains of my ego off the floor. My senior year I did gaming on my high school equestrian team which was probably the most fun I had all high school, even if I wasn't that good.
Being in college has put a halt to riding. However I'm almost done and have the time to start lessons again before buying a new horse.
This forum seems very supportive and I am happy to be part of it.
