    Smile Say Hi to the Newbie!

    Hey everyone!

    I'm Misfit, 17 from Ontario (that's in Canada for those of you who are geographically challenged). Found out about this board from a friend, who pm-ed me a link (we both post on another board as well).

    I'm not currently riding, due to school running my life. But, I JUST graduated grade 12 (as in, graduated on Wednesday), so I'm looking forward to riding a bit this summer before I head off to uni in the fall (taking a BA honours degree in Psych, eventual plan is to get my masters and PhD and become a child psychologist).

    When I AM riding, I ride at an A-circuit hunter/jumper barn about an hour from where I live. It's a long trip, but my coach is the best, and the entire barn makes it worth it. The people are SUPER friendly, the horses are ridiculously well cared for and happy, and every time you go you are reminded about WHY you ride (you also end up running an hour late because you get caught up talking with someone). I don't show (too neurotic/broke), but I groom for those who do.

    I'm a huge nerd, but love to chat. So pm me anytime! I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!

    ^^ Ha ha welcome:)
    Glad you decided to join..I think you will be able to help these boards a LOT--considering you are probably one of the smartiest horse ppls I know.

    <And to everybody on here> [BELOW]
    Don't take offence to Misfit in any way--If she sounds offencing it's probably just her style of writing. She means what she writes and you all need to understand that. She's not trying to be rude and such--she's just down-to-earth. She's one of the smartest horse-related people I have "met"--so a good idea would be to LISTEN and LEARN from her rather than getting all offensive. I haven't really noticed anybody getting real offensive because of something someone said, but I expect it shouldn't be too much of a problem...We are all horse-people and we are all on here because we love one thing--horses. We are NOT on here to try and start fights and to prove others are wrong. We are all on here to HELP each other and our horses. The sooner people get that in their thick heads the better.

    I'm 17 (turning 18 this year) and been riding since I was 9. Only get to ride 2X/week when I'm riding though, which really sucks.

    Sunny: I love how you feel I need to come with a warning label. I'm not that bad.

    ^^ Ha ha. I was considering not doing it because it might be offensive to you, but I figured probably EVERYONE needs a "warning label". Nope. You are not bad at all..I really only did it because there are not many blunt-styled writers here so I thought I'd give them a heads-up..Lol:) You are awesome. When I first "met" you at HC I was scared of you! LOL! On my TT bit thread when I said the idiotic words " TWH gait being in the mouth", and you replyed "Pardon?", it freaked me out! Haha..def not the answer I was expecting...You aren't
