11 Signs You're a Horse Girl

by Heartbeat for horses


1. The second you enter the bookstore or library, you head right for the horse books. Your hands begin to fill with The Saddle Club, Thoroughbred, Sandy Lane Stables, Black Beauty, Phantom Stallion, etc.

2. Every report or writing assignment you have for school is about horses. Somehow, you always figure a way to bring in horses. Even in math, you pick counting strides or measuring feeds.

3. In all normal conversations, you find a way to bring up the subject of horses. What on earth does cooking dinner have to do with dressage?

4. When you open up your mailbox and spot a horse magazine, you shriek in joy and race into the house to read it.

5. When someone walks into your room, they think you worship horses. Who's to blame them for thinking that when they see the following: horse posters, Breyer models, books, pillows, signs, ribbons and rosettes?

6. When someone asks you your name, you say the name of your horses, favorite lesson horse, or favorite famous horse. Oh, your name is American Pharaoh?

7. When you draw a GOOD picture of a miniature horse and your parents think its a thoroughbred? First of all, a miniature horse doesn't exceed 34 inches. I have never ever seen a 17 hand tall miniature horse!

8. Whenever you are at the barn, you feel like you're in heaven. Mucking stalls, cleaning tack, sweeping out the barn, hay in your hair, muddy boots, helmet hair... could life get any better?

9. Whenever your parents suggest watching a movie, you instantly yell Black Beauty, Secretariat, Flicka, The man from snowy river!

10. Your wardrobe consists of the following: breeches, polos, nasty t-shirts with carrot stains, jeans with grass stains, horse shirts, horse jackets, riding boots, western boots, even possibly a cowboy hat.

11. You spend your time on the computer watching horse videos, looking at pictures, playing horse games and looking at websites such as Girls Horse Club and of course HORSE CRAZY GIRLS! (My favorite websites!)

A New Perspective

I've never been one of those "pretty girls" who have their little group and only accept the ones who cake their face in makeup and have had boyfriends since they were 10. You could definitely call me a country girl.

When I was around 10, I started getting to that age where you don't feel like you fit in and you start to change yourself. I started stressing over what to wear and how to fix my hair and wear lip gloss and such.

On the outside, I pretended that was who I was but on the inside I didn't like it. It got to the point where I didn't like hanging out with other girls, and at the time, I only had one true friend who is just like me.

A couple months after I turned 11 is when I met Peppy. He gave me a whole new perspective on the world and I stopped stressing 24/7 about fitting in. It taught me how much he means to me and it taught me the love of a horse is far more rewarding than looking pretty.

I started to just be myself and guess what happened? Other girls started to be my friends. I found friends at the barn who were just like me and loved horses just as much as I did.

So remember, always be yourself and let your horse teach you to be you. :)

Hey Arabian girl! Of course you belong here, I'm in the same boat as you. I LOVE horses but I never really get to be around them and I don't own one. This website is for the horse crazy--horseless or not :D

Do I belong here?
by: Arabian girl

This website is awesome but...... do I belong here? I feel like every one else has a horse or at least has experience with horses. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE horses but.

1st of all my parents can’t afford to buy a horse for me.
2nd of all I wouldn’t know how to properly take care of a horse. I have read like every book with anything horse in it but I still don’t have like any real experience with horses.
3rdly unlike all horse books and story’s there aren’t any barns or anything horsey for at least at least an hour away ( trust me I’d know! )

Sorry if I seem whiny I am very blessed I have two great parents, five siblings, were not poor, I have like the best horse crazy girlfriend and most importantly a relationship with my Lord and Savor. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. :) and I would like to know........

Do I belong here?
