My adventures into the equestrian world started when I was 5. My cousin put me up on her big Thoroughred mare, taught me to sit properly and how to hold my reins and I was hooked. Years of hunt seat lessons, numerous injuries (myself & my horses), shows, late nights & early mornings at the barn, foals, boarding barns, farriers, trainers (both good & bad), having my horse on my property, having horses scare me so badly I almost quit and equine related jobs … horses have put me thru the wringer, so to speak.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have had many knowledgable people willing to help me over the years and haven’t had to learn everything the hard way. Not everyone has that kind of help. In my blog I’m paying it forward. Whether you’re just starting or have been with horses for years, I’m hoping all of you can learn something or view a situation from a new perspective.
I’ve recently combined this site with my other blog Equineinsanity to give our readers a wider range of topics.
If there’s any topics you’d like to see covered, please ask.
