    Lessons are an hour long at $35 an hour for a one on one lesson. They have 32 acres and at least one indoor arena, maybe two. I talked to the owner/trainer once before and I know he competes in Mounted Shooting and he wants to start hosting shows and clinics for it at the barn.

    Well, I just called and talked to the owner. He said they are getting closer to giving lessons again but not quite there yet. He said once the weather warms up a little more they will start and to call back in a couple of weeks. I'm excited!

    Hi! I see you're in Ashtabula! I'm in Erie! I'm also trying to start lessons soon...there's one on Craigslist with a decent website that I was thinking of calling. They are 35 an hour, or 100 for a pack of four, prepaid lessons.

    Anyways, /wave. I wish I could give you a horsey fix, but all I have here are my two rescue shetlands, not much good to ride hehe. XD My BO is really nice too, but I think it's a little far to board at when you do get horses, if you plan on boarding, didn't see. She's always taken care of my guys. =P

    Good luck finding a place to start lessons!
    No, I don't plan on boarding, I'm going to be keeping my horse with me :)

    Well, it's official. I got my information in the mail yesterday a I leave Thursday to head out to Montana for five months. I'm excited but nervous. I've never been away from home for more than two weeks. But I'm super excited that I get this opportunity. Not to mention that when I come back I'll have enough saved up to get the barn done and get my first horse! :)

    Wow congrats on such a fabulous opportunity! I am green for you lol. I would LOVE to work in Montana for a few months...sounds like heaven. :)

    Best of luck and hope you are able to get some lessons or something while you're there. Keep us all posted of course....with pics! I'm sure you'll have a great time after the initial homesickness/shock gives way.

    Thanks you! I'm definitely going to be taking tons of pictures! And I'm hoping to find a place to take lessons while I'm there. At the very least I'll be taking a few guided rides through the park. I'm hoping to get my cousin over her fear of horses this summer, so maybe I could convince her to come with me. The best part is being an employee of the park you get discounts on attractions like trail rides

    The homesickness is definitely what I'm dreading most. I'm sure it's going to hit me hard. It hasn't really sunk in that I'm leaving yet, but I'm sure in the morning as I'm loading my bags it will hit me. I've never been away from home for so long! But I'm sure it won't take long for me to get over. I mean, I'll be in what I believe is the most beautiful area in the entire country! So it shouldn't take much to distract me.

    Well, everything in Montana is going well. Yesterday I was in the saddle shop in town and I was talking to the woman running it and a couple women who were there shopping. Come to find out the younger woman runs a horse rehab 36 miles up the road. I asked if they were looking for volunteers and she got really excited and gave me her information and I told her I would probably come up sometime next week to start volunteer work! I'm very excited that this opportunity presented itsself. It's going to be a great chance to get some experiance. They also give riding lessons and if all goes well I'll be able to start soon. If anyone is interested the website is montanaawareness.com

    Well, I am unexpectedly back in Ohio again. And had to use all my savings to get back here. I'm currently in the job market and was taking lessons from a friend of mine who competes a lot but she is going in for surgery and won't be able to ride again until early December. My life has basically come to a stand still where horses are concerned. At least until I can find a ob and start lessons at a stable. I know what barn I plan to go to and have talked to the owner, but it's not easy to find work around here, unfortunately. I'm trying hard not to get down about all this, but given the circumstances, it's a little difficult. I'll be sure to give everyone an update when I manage to find work, though!

    Okay, so I just got a call about 30 seconds after that last post. I now have a job, one night a week, 10 pm to 7 am at a gas station. One day a week isn't much, but I'm only about 10 or 15 minutes away from this place, so it won't cost me much in gas. It's not that great, but it's an improvement from 10 minutes ago :)
