Hello, I'm very new to the equine world, and evidently, this forum. I started riding about two years ago, only participating in lessons every other week or less in the winter and not at all in the summer. Although I thoroughly enjoyed it, I didn't learn much about it through my brief experiences.
In recent times, however, I have changed to a new riding facility that has shaped me into a much more involved rider, and it's really brought out my passion for horses.
Due to financial reasons, I'm not able to keep a horse of my own, however I do have some questions in regards to leasing a horse which I will ask in a separate thread. In fact, I have many questions, and I figured a forum full of experienced, educated, horse lovers would be just the place to build a foundation for my research on horses. Who knows? Maybe one day I'll have a horse of my own. But for now, lessons are all I've got.
Well, that was my little welcome post, I suppose. I'm very excited to be a participant in this forum now!
