  1. Riding In New Mexico?

    Hey all! I'm not usually on here much...more so just lurking around reading random things...anyways I figured ya'll could help me out some! I've been living in Germany for the past 2+ years and I am FINALLY moving back to America. I rode for a good year of being out here then things went downhill and I had to sell my horse then stop all together. I'll be moving to Alamogordo, New Mexico and I am in need of horses back in my life once again. Do any of ya'll know of any good stables or anything in that area that you could suggest to me? I mainly do Eventing and Jumpers but at this point I think I would just be content being around horses again... Thank in advance! :)
  2. Dressage Tests In Germany?

    Hello all, I currently live in Germany (from the US). I just bought a horse over here and I am looking at doing some shows with him I just can't find anything about the dressage tests. I know the levels are a bit different and have different names, but are the tests the exact same? Anyone know anything or where to find copies of these? Any help would be wonderful!!! Thank you!
  3. Riding In Germany...

    Hey all! It's been forever since I've been on here but I thought ya'll may be able to help me if you know anything. I am now in the Air Force and I am currently stationed at Spangdahlem in Germany. I am dying to start riding again...it's been wayyy to long. Have any of you been in this area and know of any good places to recommend or know of people that have been out here? I know there are a few places a little ways off the base but I don't want to go there and end up getting screwed over since I'm just an American that doesn't know any German or anything like that. Any advice, comments, anything?!?! :)

    That's awesome! lol. Do you know what AFSC you want or anything?
  5. Which Brand Of Saddle Do You Reccomend?

    I have an older Pessoa and I LOVE it. I bought it used and I don't know how old it is but it was back when they were making them nicer and made to last. I wouldn't get one of the new ones now. They just seem cheap to me. My trainer has a Touluse and I have ridden in it a couple times and it seems pretty nice. I can't realyl say anything bad about it that I have seen
  6. Oldie Coming Back!

    I don't think I am going back, well I'm going to visit for a week or so hopefully soon but not to live. I have my recruiter down here in az along with my jobs so it's kinda like I'm stuck
  7. Oldie Coming Back!

    Hey everyone! So I used to be on here a few years ago, I think I stopped about 2 or so years ago and I have slowly started coming back and "stalking" so I decided to reintroduce myself. I'm Jacquie, I'm now 19 and now live in Arizona. I have just started riding again after not being able to for a while. My horse is still in Michigan but I found a place a mile up the road where I do barn chores in exchange for two horses to ride whenever. It's realyl nice and I'm enjoying it. I'm no longer do the whole school thing, I did it last year up at Northern Arizona Uni. I was studying business and in Air Force ROTC. Let's just say....school isn't for me right now so now I'm enlisting in the AF and I'm waiting to leave for basic. I don't have a leave date or anything, I'm still going through the process. My life is pretty boring right now, I don't have any friends down here since I haven't ever really lived here, all my college friends live in other states or other areas, high school friends are back home in Mich, and I work with all old people lol. So yea it sucks more or less. So that's me in a nuttshell! There is more of course but I'll leave ya'll with that :)

  9. Hey, Kentucky People!

    i believe my friends horse is doing it!!!
  10. Hey, I'm Jacquie. I doubt any of you guys remember me. I haven't been on in over a year...i stalk around sometimes, but never post. I am just in the need of old horsey friends sooo updates now: Horses- I miss riding soooo much. I haven't ridden in the longest time... Last summer I did the most amazing working student position in KY and when i got home i just kinda fell into a riding depression i guess you could call it and i couldnt get myself to go out and ride...I tried selling my horse but it didn't go over to well and couldn't get him sold. So now I'm going to school in Arizona and my horse is still in Michigan...I guess my mom has started riding him and working with one of my previous trainers and they are planning on taking him to a show next month which is wonderful. I just wish I could ride again. It would make me that much more happier even though I am already pretty happy. School- I'm going to school at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. It is absolutly amazingggggg and so incredibly beautiful! I honestly haven't been this happy in quite a long time. I have made some amazing friends already and it's only been a week and a half. I'm majoring in business and I am doing the Air Force ROTC which is actually pretty cool. I am really enjoying that. I have to get up every Mon/Wed/Fri at 0545 for PT at 0630 and that is pretty intense but I like it, and now I'm giong to start going to the ones on tues and thurs, so gooodbyeeee sleeping. lol. I can't go out and party or doing any of that fun stuff but it's worth it. Boys- Ohhh boyss....so the boy that I am honestly in love with is in Iraq right now... we are in a really complicated and strange situation...I don't really even know how to explain it all. He said he wants me to be with him when he gets home in DEC/JAN. Like he wants me to move with him once I finish my first year of school...I would definitly do it but I just don't know if he is being serious or not...it's really hard to tell and its soooo hard waiting for him to come home. I miss him more and more everyday and i worry about him all the time. I just want him to come home so we can figure everything out. ughh so yea there is a little update on me...kudos to you if you read it all...I just kinda needed somewhere to vent and talk to people. ♥

    Thanks guys!!!! :)
  13. College And Horses.

    I will be starting college next year. I am planning on going to Baylor in Texas. I have already been accepted and it was my first choice we just need to figure out a way to pay for it. Anyways, what are your guys opinions on riding while in college especially as a Freshman. I will be coming from Michigan and trying to figure out if I should bring my horse, leave him here, sell him or what to do. Baylor does have an equestrian team so I will join that no matter what. But I just don't know what to do with my horse. I'm afraid of the cost, that I won't be able to afford to move him down and keep up on the board, vet, farrier, everything along with my costs. But then I would like to have my own horse since he is my best friend. And also what about time, like how hard is it to fit in your own horse while attending school and a job and everything? If I don't bring him with would it be best just to sell him, lease him out to someone in MI if I can or what? I just really want to do the right thing and not make the wrong decision either way and I figured you guys would have some opinions and personal experiences with it. Thanks a ton! :)
  14. Texas Peeps!

    I know there is already a thread for Texas People but I think it might be easier if I start a new one for a couple questions that I have. Next year I'll be going to college at Baylor in Waco, Hopefully. I was already accepted and it's my first choice and everything just have to figure out how to pay for it. So I was just wondering, what are the average costs of board, lessons fees, training fees, etc around Tx. I mainly do eventing so that is really what I will be looking for is an event barn and trainer, or if not that Hunter/Jumper or Dressage. I just kind of want a general idea to know what I should be expecting, if I can afford it and whatnot. Also if there is any trainer or barn that you suggest please let me know! Thanks a ton! :)
