I am a re-ginner too(love that one!) and have been back in for two years and have owned for 1.5 years. I board but I do the feed and the chores so that I can learn everything I can suck in.

I'm a total horse newb. :) My 16 year old daughter and I started lessons just last week. It's something I've wanted to do my entire life. I have so much to learn that it's almost daunting, but it's so exciting at the same time! My long-term goal is to own my own horse some day...

Hi to all the newbies! Welcome, and I am so glad the horse forum has a place for questions where people can feel comfy asking whatever. I am not really new, started riding at 7 years old and have ridden and owned pretty consistently my whole life, and am now 39 (egads). There have been a couple of years here and there where I took a break from riding due to personal issues or finance, but I have pretty much always had a horse (even retired pasture pets count).

I have also cared for my horses on my own most of my life, but the past few years decided to go with a full care stable and am having a blast meeting so many new people and not having to do so much work. I am meeting a few newbies there too.

There is *always* something new to learn about horses. They are the ultimate humblers. Just when you think you have them figured out, they will pull something new, behaviorally, or health wise, and you will find youself wondering all over again. So never be afriad to ask questions, and don't forget you will get varying opinions on stuff, but there will usually be some similar general themes running through threads. That is what I would really pay attention to.

Hi! I'm a newbie. My first encounter with a horse is when I tried horseback riding last 2011 together with my friends. It was my very first time and it was totally nerve wracking. All the time, I was just scared and slightly paranoid that the horse will have tantrums. Forgive me, I was a first timer. But then, I tried it again after a few months. I don't know what happened but I felt at ease the second time.

I fell in love with horses. And I've been very eager to buy my own horse. If you can suggest or recommend me a good place to buy, then I would truly appreciate it.

Thanks. :)

When you are on a great horse, you have the best seat you will ever have.

I'm throwing my hat in. :) I'm not totally new to horses, as I was fortunate to have been able to take lessons years ago. Although I've been able to get in the occasional trail ride, a lot of time has passed since then; so, many things do feel new to me. I just bought my first horse this year, and all 4 of my girls are now taking lessons.
