Hello everyone! I am a 20-year-old Texan, agriculture student specializing in equine studies (I'm hoping to get a master's in Animal Science and get a shoeing license). I am also getting my first horse in a few days! My uncle raises quarter horses and is kind enough to loan me a sorrel 8-year-old mare to train on during the second semester of my horsemanship classes. If I like the horse after my classes, ill be able to purchase her. I'm very nervous, yet excited! I've saved up a lot of money for this moment, and do not want to ruin my uncles' gorgeous mare so I'm hoping all of you can give me some advice! I'm happy to be here and hope to learn a lot and meet kind and interesting people who will help me further my passion and knowledge for horses!
