New to horsemanship

Hi there, I don't have a horse and I don't have any riding background. I am a huge newbie.

I've had a love for horses all my life. It is my dream to own and ride. I've finally stopped making excuses and decided to make that dream come true. I plan to own my own horse a year from now and am going to spend the year on riding/horsemanship lessons, research, saving money, etc. so that's why I'm here.

I hope to make some friends, learn as much as I can and be a good mom to my future horse. :)

We did the same thing. We had horses twenty years ago and read everything we could, researched boarding places and finally got our boy this week. Glad your here!

Hey! That sounds like a great plan :). Do you think you will eventually board the horse, or would it be at your property? Do you have any stables near you? English? Western? Both?

Time will go fast and you will have your horse before you know it

Hey, welcome! Glad you've decided to come here. I'm relatively new to horse ownership myself... Never give up the dream.. you'll get there eventually. Trust me, I'm 23 and finally after all these years have managed to find a horse to care for and she's a ton of fun. I wish you the best in your journey. :) If you ever need anything feel free to ask.
