Hello From BC, Canada
 
Hi, Everyone


I'm going to be buying a horse next spring. I've not ridden in the last 25yres except for a few trail rides. I have enough land to have a horse on so I'm concerned with fencing and some type of barn for him/her to be in at night. It's can get to -40 Celsius here so it can be really cold.

I learned to ride English but I'm interested in Trail Riding I live in a rural area and I can just walk out from my yard into the country side. I'm looking forward to learning from everyone's posts.

well first of all welcome!! Are you ready to own a horse on your own? Will you be taking lessons or your just relearning on your own? How exciting!! What breed and age of horse are you getting?

I'm not ready yet to own a horse because I have to get fencing and a shelter up. I'll be taking some natural horsemanship classes. I think it's a good idea to take some classes to make sure my basic knowledge is sound. I've been watching some Perelli (sp?) work with horses on youtube and I love the connection btw the horses and the riders I see. There is a place about an hour and half from me that teaches on those principles.

I'm thinking Quarter horse five years old about 15hh. I have a four and a five year old who would like to ride to. So the disposition is more important then breed to me.

I'm so excited though I can't wait. We will be doing the fencing this summer, still though I just feel like I should wait till next spring and do some riding between now and then so I'm not so green when I get him/her.

Thanks for the welcomes. :D
