Hey everyone,
I have started sharing a horse on part-loan in Slindon/ West Sussex near some amazing long and short hacking areas, Im looking for people who would like to go hacking 1/2 times a week or whenever. Im sharing a 15.3 hand cob gelding and he is an angel with other horse however a bit spooky hacking alone and as Im a novice rider I would prefer to hack with others until I gain more experience. I am 17 however don't mind hacking with people older. If you think you are nearby and would be interested please let me know as I am unable to trailer him as I don't have a trailer available. He is not good with dogs but fine with any other animal.
Many thanks,
Lauren.

Hi :) this forum is pretty widespread, mostly people all over the Uk and some overseas too, you may have more luck getting onto local horse facebook groups and asking there, best bet though is to ask around at your yard if you could join someone who is going out sometime :)

Yeah was just trying to see if there is anyone here as there is no facebook groups for my area, and my yard is very small 2 other people, One has a stallion and can't ride with other horses and the other doos not really do hacks, S o I'm a bit stuck XD.

I found a couple of groups around there on FB;

Not specific to your exact location but more specific than this forum and a good place to start looking for leads, you can ask people to point you to more local groups or post about people to ride with in your area :) or do like I did 3 years ago and set up your own group for your specific area, I have over 300 members now :)
Don't feel unwelcome on the forum, we are unlikely to be able to help in person but it's a good cyber community here :)
