    Teen Self-Learning Girl From Arkansas

    Introducing Myself
    Hi, I am a Christian, Cajun, female, teenager (between the ages 13 - 17) living in Arkansas, US. I joined the site wanting to meet people my age in my area, but mostly because I could use help with horses. I spend most time outdoors doing many things. I'm country... maybe a redneck. I'm in 4H, so I do some fair things. I show crafts, photography, poultry, rabbits and horses. All of which I am pretty new to. I own a toy poodle (not the fluffy weird kind), a horse, a pony, two deer, three rabbits and a cats. Although there are a total of five horses, two ponies, and two cats here. I'm homeschooled so I suppose I am more DJ than a public schooler should be, but I'm working on it. Although I prefer the company of horses rather than people.

    My life story of Horses

    No one in my family (at all) does horses. My sister, my brother and I got horses go Christmas back in 2005 I believe. Well my parents didn't know what they were doing and since I was so young, I wasn't allowed near them on my own. Mother hired three different trainers which game my horses the basics. My brother however lost interest so his horse is doing nothing. Well here eight years or so later, my mom all of a sudden put me in 4H and started letting me ride my horse. I've been riding roughly a year now, totally on my own. I had experience before, but mostly basics. I've showed in a laid back winter series that did all events through October 2013 to March 2014. Also a one 4H show and one barrel and pole club show. There are no upcoming shows so t sister has stopped training/riding for right now. I don't want to stop though, I want to keep training and getting batter. Sadly I have no help and have come to an end. I don't know what to do. I do western events, although I love 'em all I currently and training myself and horse for; Western Pleasure, Trail, Reining and some speed events. My horse knows the basics. I have also trained her to spin (a very poor, slow spin), rollback ( I dot know f I'm doing it right), and other minor maneuvers. All I can do is internet research for the training of my horse. I'm trying to live a life never loved or done in my family.

    I'd enjoying getting messages from anyone who has something in common with me or has questions.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I know I've learned SO much from being on the forum, you probably will too! Just remember: if people ever seem "harsh," it's because they love horses just like you do and they're telling you the straight, honest truth. You sound like you want to learn and that's really really great.
    I'm sure you're going to love it here. :)

    And there's a "Teen Talk" section if you ever want to talk about teenage "stuff," if you're interested in that. :)

    Do you have any pictures of your horses? We love pictures here!!

    I admire you working so hard, trying to learn! Since your mother was wise enough to hire trainers for the horses, I would imagine she would hire a trainer for you to learn from? Have you asked?
    I think you will go far!

    I am 25 in Central AR, I too am kind of self learning so it is something I understand. Mostly what I see here are people who just instruct you to find a trainer. Which isn't always possible for everyone.

    Welcome to horseforum, I wanted to start off by saying how refreshing it was to see a well written post from a young member – on many forums, here aside, a lot of the younger crowd struggle to put together well structured posts.

    I will echo an earlier suggestion to speak to your parents with regards to hiring a coach for some formal training. You seem very positive and excited to learn as well as having supportive parents which is great, but there is no replacement for learning from somebody more experienced than you..and that's essential for success in most show circuits.
