So I should probably introduce myself....

Hello there all, my names Sam. I'm eighteen, been in Florida all of my life, and been obsessed with horses for about as long (the story goes I was initially afraid of them, and then made myself go up and pet one!) I've been riding since I was thirteen, and my first time in the saddle I was trotting, I think that's what got me addicted to going fast. I leased an 11 y/o rescued Tennessee Walker for a bit, and he was a stubborn ass of an "old man", but I loved him. Then I was mostly just riding two or three different horses around the barn, till I fell off one of the owners newer rescues after she spooked and took off on me. So I took a break from riding for a bit, got a job, etc.,etc....and then some things happened in my life and I decided that I really needed to get back to horses, because they were kind of a lost love for me. So what do I do? I go and buy and 11 y/o OTTB. It really was love at first sight, everyone told me that I shouldn't do it, but I did and even if he doesn't like me all of the time, I love him. I'm currently in the process of re-training him (if he would just stop getting hurt....) and have learned a lot, definitely more than I think he's learned at this point. At this point I don't know whether horses will be a continued pursuit in my life or just a one time thing, but I definitely know its something that's going to change me!

Welcome! yeah, everyone has bad accidents, but the one thing to point out, if you love something enough to keep doing even after you get scared, it should always be an important thing in your life. Trust me, i know from expirence.

welcome from another Floridian!
