Hi everyone,

My name is Lisetta and I'm new to this community, nice to meet you all.

I live on a 200 acre horse stud in NSW, Australia and I have roughly 32 horses on my property at the moment.

I have ridden both dressage and hacking since I was a very small child and have had extensive wins in both dressage competitions and royal shows.

I have recently started giving riding lessons and occasionally training clients horses.

Sadly I've lost some of my motivation since my main competition/pleasure pony passed away from colic, I still love horses with all my heart and it hurts me badly that I can't have the fun that I used to.. it feels like it's all just work now and I'm hoping that if I associate myself with people who still have the passion and fun that I used to.. that maybe I can get some of it back.

I have many, many photos of my horses; I have mainly warmbloods now but my previous show pony was a Riding Pony x Welshie.

Above and below: Sovereign Min Pin (Robbie)
*Now sadly passed away.

Photos from Sydney Royal Easter Show (Not sure which year, but quite a few ago as I was rather young)

Apptrak Sabrina
This fiery girl runs the stud, she's got the strongest personality I've ever seen in a horse and she isn't afraid to show it.
She has a rather odd liking of having her belly scratched and lifts her back leg up and out like a dog.

Apptrak Kryptic Dream
Kryptic is the newest member of our equine family, he's spunky, adorable and hopefully in time he will be my new dressage star.

My home doubles as a business and my mother and I offer both rider and horse training.

We also offer agistment and a unique barnstay experience (visitors are welcome to bring their horses for the weekend/duration of their stay and we have some lovely bush trails)

If anyone is ever in the Hunter Valley region of Australia we'd love for you to stop by.

Our website is located at http://apptrak.org/

We always welcome visitors, people seeking information or people interested in linking websites.

If you'd like to hear more about any of my horses, like to share stories of your own or just want to chat horse-talk I'd love for you to contact me.. It's very rare I get to chat with horsey people on a casual basis, it's much more fun when it's just chit-chat and not business talk. :)

Look forward to getting to know some of the riders and horse lovers out there.

I'm a college student in Minnesota and I'm trying to figure out a really cheap way to do something fun and horse related during Spring Break. (My tuition is $36,000 a year!) And though I realize this is a long shot in the dark, I figured I'd ask around and see whether or not there would be someone (or someone who knew someone) who would be willing to let me stay with them and maybe ride every now and then in exchange for maybe... I dunno, some chores (I've worked with horses before, I'm a horseback counselor during the summers) or a small fee or something. I'm so poor but I don't think it's that far fetched of an idea. I'd work out the plane ticket.

My logic was that if somebody asked me, I'd do it (it's like an exchange student, sort of) as long as I knew their background wasn't creepy. Which mines isn't! :]

I guess just let me know.
It would make my LIFE to be able to do something like that.

We used to get work exchange students who stayed with us for free on the condition that they helped my mum with all the horse related work.

My mum is very over worked and we can't afford to employ anyone at the moment, so it's actually a rather decent idea.

I'll have a talk to her about it and get back to you. :D

Oh my God!

I didn't actually expect you to reply to my comment.

Of course, it wouldn't be for a very long time - my spring recess lasts from March 31, 2oo7 - April 1o, 2oo7, but I figure that if I had to stay a little longer or leave a little earlier I could make arrangements.

I just realized that I haven't told you anything about myself.
I'm this wonderfully mysterious girl asking to come stay with you!

If you or your mother have any other questions - just let me know.
I check my Live Journal frequently throughout the day.

And my name is pronounced like the season and the flower.
