Right, so I had been journaling kind of in my insomnia thread, but figure that it is better to just start a journal here.
Where to begin... I am horseless currently. Have been since 2005. Since then I have trained 4 horses independently, and worked under a woman from Philadelphia training for a few months. I worked at a camp last summer as a Therapeutic Riding Instructor for folks with disabilities. Camp started this year three days ago, and I am a little heartbroken not to be there, despite the disaster it was as far as the horses we were sent.
I was born and raised in Oregon, USA - went to college there briefly after some time off, hated it, and left. Now I owe the school a ridiculous amount of money for dropping out (nevermind that they had already been paid by the govt), and I owe back my Federal Aid loans. Sigh. I dropped and moved cross country, and now reside in the Mid-Atlantic region with my SO.
Currently having problems sleeping; so working on getting better with that. So far only sporadic luck..
Not sure when I will start riding again; have many more things to work out before taking on that luxury.
Anyway, welcome to my journal. Let's begin!
