Agreed with Tess, Serg.

Then I had to switch barns which took a long long time and then I took lessons there until eventually my instructor said that I needed to start owning or at least leasing a horse because it would improve my riding SOO much more so she offered my my lesson horse, Cheyenne! At first my parents said no but eventually she offered again and so we took her and I've shown her 3 times so far!! And she was right I've improved SO much more! Cheyenne's owner even offered me to have Cheyenne!!! AHH!! of course my parents said no, but whatever I still get to lease her! Her owner is so nice she's even going to let me take her trailor to pony club if I join and she said that I'll be a professional rider in no time and that I've improved 'so much! SO much. I can't even tell you how much!!' lol that's what she told me on Saturday! I love her!!
I hope to come back here after some time and have a story like this to share. I seen a appaloosa that was 17H and he was beautiful. It was very cheap as well. It was left on the ranch and the owner never came back for him. As cheap as he was I declined because I don't know much about simple care. Hopefully I can find another horse this beautiful the day I am ready.

Im like you cheyanne. I have educated Tess since I was 9 years old. I knew what was involved and what was right and wrong (most of the time) and I am so happy with our progress together.

Serg- That's cool! You should start by leasing a horse. It's great to start with! Get a lease where you can come whenever and ride and take care of the horse. That's what I'm doing with Cheyenne. I'm pretty much training for when we have the money for me to own a horse, and if she's still alive by then, I'm going to get Cheyenne as her owner will give her to me for free!
PintoTess- yeah! That's awesome! I started when I was 9 too. Although I had some pretty stupid ideas. I'd write books and me and my friend would play 'horses' and all that stuff and I found the books a while ago and it's hullarious reading them!! I was just taking lessons then and I didn't have a really good instructor. Until I moved due to the arena freezing and got another instructor. I've been leasing Cheyenne for a year in June! Her owner says that I'm exactly what she needs- one gentil person who she will learn to respect and who will love her and learn on her. she used to be used as a trail horse and then a lesson horse and she had gotten bad habits because she got sick of it so that's pretty much the reason why I'm leasing her too. I need her, and she needs me. Who knows where she'd be without me. Probly on a bucking streak and sold to some random person who uses her as a trail horse at a dude ranch for random people to come and take her out on slow trail rides. No, she deserves better than that! I've been taking her to shows, and I'm hoping to take her into gymcanas once I get better at that stuff. She's SO fast you should've seen her at the gaming part of that show! I just said 'tssssst' and hardly had to kick her to send her galloping like a racehorse across the arena and finnishing first lol! Love that girl she was the oldest and the smallest but did that stop her? NO WAY!! lol now I'm just blabbing on about her lol I could go on forever!!

I looked around and spoke to many good folks that work on the ranch. They then pointed me in the direction of the ranch manager. I asked her if they accept volunteers. After talking for several hours, she made me a deal. I show up and do work around the ranch, and she would teach me about horses. The care, the maintenance, everything. I am very excited. I worked on a cattle ranch for 5 years and loved it. I will keep updates as to my progress. Not that anyone cares.
... I care! I'm happy to see another MALE getting into the life of horses!!!

lol! Well I WAS going to get her, but my parents said no. GRRRR I was so close too! Now we have to pay extra for our lease. It's only a 50$ difference between the boarding and the lease and then there's the farrier and vet but still.
