Some ways to get involved
 
I have been riding for 3 yrs. and would like to find a way to be involved w/ horses other than just riding in lessons. Any ideas?

Here are a few, at the barn you have lessons at ask if you could do some of the barn chores and such, and maybe ask some of the owners if they need their horses worked out.

Good idea:)! The only problem is that the owner yells alot and kinda scares me!lol

Hehe I understand :) But just keep thinking I want to be around horses and be more involve and just ask her, it won't hurt :) Yeah but I used to be really shy and never asked until my old trainer said I could help around the place and I was more then happy to, then it led to me having a free lease during the summer. Then I move to a new barn and I was going to wait for a couple of months to ask the owner (untill I got to know her) if I could help out but instead I ended up getting my first Hero at the most unexpected time.

So i take that the more courage you muster up, the more good things u get from it?

HeroMyOttb 12-28-2009 08:00 PM

No, not really the more courage but more of the determination to be around horses :)

I volenteer at a thereputic riding stable near my house. It's a very fun way to spend more time around horses and also help out your community.
