New member from the Midwest

Hi everyone! I'm new to this site.

I stumbled acrossed it today and decided to join. I do believe I've stumbled on this site once or twice before.

About my horse life:
I've grown up around horses all my life. I can't remember a time where horses weren't a part of my life. I spent a lot of my time on horse ranches, camps and even a breeding farm run by family members.

I was given the chance to own horses for many years. I sadly made the decision to sell my 3 horses 2 years ago, to try and pay for college. It was a heartbreaking decision, and I kind of regret it.

After selling, I got the chance to lease a horse for a few months, until money was an issue for a struggling college student.

I've since put my horse life on hold for the moment, until I am able to save for a trailer, boarding, vet, farrier, horse, upkeep and put away money incase of emergencies.

I'm hoping and praying that I can own a horse again one day.

I'm in the same boat you are.
