I'm assuming that horses count as 'random ramblings...' So let's talk horses, people! I'll start. I've been riding for about 6 years now, and I'll be getting *a* horse soon. I don't know who, what, when, where, why or how, but I am. And now I'm looking at the prices of stuff....wow. NO I AM NOT PAYING $10,000 FOR A NEW SADDLE--a used one will do fine. At least I have the barn/pastureland on our property already!! And now my friend might be having her horse come to my place too, so we'll have multiplying horses!! I'm just wondering if anyone has advice for me?! Because I think that I have a list of everything I'll need....but I want to be sure. Now I just have to wait for the perfect horse... Anyone else here like horses? Anyone else here need riding advice?
