Gringos With Horses Lakeside? Empty Gringos With Horses Lakeside?

Post by the virginian on Sat Apr 04, 2015 1:48 pm

I plan to buy a horse soon that I can ride on local trails, but have little experience with horses.
I'm hoping to find gringos with horses that are willing to teach me to care for a horse properly. Not looking to ride anyone's horse..just groom, hoof care, become familiar with equipment, or anything else you think I should know, or do, before I get my own.

Thanks, Eric

Eric - is it OK to share your message and email with some of the "horse network" Lakeside? Frank and I aren't at the rancho now but maybe one of that group could assist.

ALWAYS look a gift horse in the mouth.
Unless you want big vet bills. Beer Beer

Done - sent the message out, blind cc'd to a number of horse people Lakeside, and cc'd to you. Have fun! Horses are wonderful to have around. But, they are also big and powerful, spook easily, can cause injuries, and are also somewhat frail health wise. I love them! but they're an avocation, not a vocation...

Just like houses here.  Rent before owning.   See if you really like owning horses.  They are lovely interesting creatures but much work. I would rent  a horse from a stable to start or borrow one in exchange for cleaning out stables for example.

Contact Dr. Carlos Zavala, cell 333-480-6686, he is a local vet. He has his own stable and horses, local people board their horses with him.
