Hello!

What an nice idea, a hobbies area!

I wondered if there were any fellow equestriennes out there?

I have 4 horses currently, and my young mare foals in April ( I will be a grandmother before I am a mother!)

Look forward to hearing from you!

Not ridden for just under a year due to moving from Gloucester to York to our final place or rest Nottingham but yes been a horsey gal since I could walk - never managed to own my own horse as always found myself looking after other peoples and sharing - mainly because I'm a TTouch fan and animal behaviorist (not qualified I may stress) in spare time as hobby, well for cats, horses and ferrets that is and have helped out a lot of people with their problem animals!

Either of you ladies planning on going to any of the 3 day events this year?

Hi Nikki
I have been promising to take DH to one of the 3 day events for years and we have a caravan now so we could stay on site for the 3 days, maybe it would be a good time for us to meet up, as I don't know about your dp but mine will get bored and will no doubt end up propping up the tent in the nearest beer stand ;D
If you fancy going either for the 3 days (you could stay with us if you wanted, but I know men can be funny about such things) or we can meet up for the day on the
X-country day, if so let me know which one is closer to you and we can try and arrange things nearer the time,
Zoe...I haven't chatted with you before but you are more than welcome to join us if this is up your street.

I'm the same as you, trying to get DP to go to one, think if there's at least another guy who's not too into it then beer tent would suit him just fine - most I go to, big Badminton fan though.  I'm up for it definitely, even if its not the full 3 days DP could hack ( ;) lol no pun intended) it I would drag him to the XC as thats my fav event anyway.

What do you think Zoe?

I know what you mean about the fear factor and age - I used to blast aound a XC with no fear but now I'll put on a body protector and go down a gear - maybe its with age you become more sensible - awful thought I know!!!!

Hiya,
Just spotted this :eek: 
In the last year I have re-discovered my love of horse riding, although my love of horses never left me, my confidence did ;D due to a rather unfortunate parting with me & the horse at a cross country jump nearly 20 years ago, resulting with me in hospital for weeks with a v.badly broken ankle :mad: several opperations, scars, screws & plates later, I was told not to ride for at least a year to allow it to heal :(  Now I just wish I had bitten the bullet & started again years ago ::) I think you have a lot more fears as you get older, but I am getting there  :)
Hope to speak soon

Andrea

Dydie I promise I am not stalking you he he he he ::)

I love everything horsey but stopped riding probably 5 years ago due to finances and taking up another expensive hobby (scuba)

But love Badminton so if there is something arranged let me know  :)

I didn't realise was so soon either.  No idea if DP will come yet - hmmmm poss not, have to find right time to ask.  I however will come to the XC though, even if its alone.  Shall I put word about to non-horsey people on site or do you reckon non horse people would get bored? Then again with the XC is a free for all to walk around, etc

It would not hurt asking, besides even people who are not interested might enjoy the walk and if they get bored they can keep our other halves company in the beer tent  ;D oh well looks like I will be the one driving home again  :-\

Blimey just looked at the prices - gone up me thinks - £10 car parking and £20 at gate - £30 total each  ^scared^ just to get in - hmmmmmm, let me have a nose around at the other horse trial events for this year - one after our weddnig would be better cash wise.  Will get on the case this weekend - put up full info here and around the site - see if we can get a big meet at one of the trials. 

Bummer as I like Badminton too, plus my dad lives near in Gloucester so could have popped in to see him.
