Hello from Northern Virginia!!
Hi! I've been lurking around the forum for some time now admiring everyone's horses and soaking in the advice given. So, I figured it was time for me to say hi. :-)

I currently own a 4 year old OTTB gelding, Eddie (JC Name: Weigh Station Show Name: Edward Teach). He is my first horse, however, I've been around and ridden horses for a long time. I purchased Eddie off track at the end of May and since then he's come a LONG way. We schooled him for the first time cross country last friday and he has natural talent!

I also run Second Chance Sporthorses, and also have an account for my company here with the same name. I am the same person, but rather use that account when it comes to business. Eddie is Second Chance's first resale, and I am excited about whats to come with the company. I do have plans to expand to therapeutic riding in a few years.

So once again, Hello! I have plans to stay for a while. :D

Hi guys, since my account, OTTB Love, has been banned, I will reply with this one. :/

I am in the Leesburg area, but...long story-my horse lives in NY, where I am a lot of the time, one of which is actually a therapy horse.

I love Leesburg. When I was living in Herndon for a year, I enjoyed making trips to Leesburg. We also head your way for an Event that we regularly take our horses too. :)

Did you move to NoVa for business reasons?

No-that is where hubby and kids work, so go see them. Long story. Did bring one of my guys to Berryville for the winter a couple years ago, and enjoyed it, but frankly this year I know I won't ride all that much anyway with other stuff on my plate, and it is a LOT cheaper here in NY, as well as my guy is at a friends farm, so when I do ride I have someone to ride with, PLUS, she has enough hay for this winter-plenty-which I believe will be a concern some places. That alone was enough to get me to leave him here and not worry about it.
