    Newbie from Florida!

    Hey! My name is Janelle. I'm 20 years young and I live in South Florida. I have been around horses since I was a baby, but have been riding and working with horses on a regular basis since I was 8. My first horse was an arabian, my second horse was an arabian, and my current horse is an arabian, see the trend? I have helped in many rescue projects that weren't arabians but they also weren't really my horses sooo. My current horse Faji (fashee) is a 16 year old arabian mare who I kind of rescued. She was a western pleasure champion at three, then retired at four and sat in a pasture for ten years as a lawn ornament. That's where I came in. I re-trained her with natural horsemanship techniques and she went from a crazy green and spooky little mare, to an awesome partner. We have done so many things including week-long camping trips to Live Oak, FL, parades, South Florida Fair demos, fun shows, local shows, and distance riding in local management areas. We are also learning and working on dressage Although I haven't competed much in the past, I am hoping to get her to regionals next year! She is the love of my life, so much that I have a tattoo that represents her on my lower back, explaining my avatar!

    Other than horses, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful boyfriend Russell and lounging on the couch with my Rat Terrier/Italian Greyhound mix named Lady. (She's my other baby) I also like graphic and web design and love bulding websites. I love the beach and I am very lucky to live in South Florida and have the privlidge of having a permit to ride my horse on a few local beaches (talk about fun!).

    I am going to the University of Florida next fall when I finish my AA here for Equine Management including (but not limited to) equine nutrition, riding theory, breeding techniques, basic vet skills, etc. and I am also interested in equine massage as well.

    Well that's pretty much me in a nutshell! I am exited to meeting and seeing everyone around the forums!!

    Lol wicked go you! I'm only 16 (17 in June) so they still kinda have a parental obsession over me! Thing is, they are all protective n stuff over me bout stuff like that but then I go horse riding n jumping n out hacking n stuff n it aint exactly the safest sport on earth so they should have some respect for my indipendance eh lol. Oh well... :roll: so what other things you into part from ur arabians? Xx

    I also like shopping, spending money, doing girl stuff like getting pedicures and my hair done up and stuff.

    I also like four-wheeling, mud wrestling, partying, and I'm slowly but surely learning about mechanics. My boyfriend has two mustangs and drag races with them so I go to car meets with him and stuff.

    I like just about everything .. and if I've never done it .. I'm always willing to try (I'm a bit dare-devilish)
