Hello everyone! Since this blog is still so new, I figured I should introduce myself a bit more! So here are some fun facts about me and my background with horses! I don’t come from a horse family so getting involved in initially wasn’t easy. There were some horses who lived down the road from me, but that was about it!
I’ve always loved horses.
I vividly remember in the summers reading horse magazines. browsing tack magazines, reading horse books, and practice my horse drawing skills. I’ve loved horses for as long as I can remember!
I never owned my own horse until my 30’s.
I took lessons for years, and my sister and I even half leased a horse one summer. I worked at the barn I took lessons at, but I never owned my own horse. So don’t give up fellow horse lovers, sometimes it just takes time.
My Horse is Mud Pony
He also goes by Mr. Man, but neither of those are his real name! I call him Mud Pony due to his love of mud, and the children’s book of the same name.
I have an Animal Science Degree
I went to school so I could work with horses. I have a concentration in Equine Studies. Unfortunately, life happened and those plans had to be put on hold for the most part. My goals still include owning my own barn one day, just a small private riding facility. One day, hopefully.
I took 7 years off from horses.
College happened, then the real world happened, and there was no money for horses, no money for lessons. So I stopped riding. It wasn’t until I got Mud Pony that I was able to ride again. Unfortunately that means I am hideously rusty…and the current separation isn’t doing me any good! I used to be a good rider, I swear!
My life with horses has been fragmented, and I’ve never been able to spend as much time with them as I would have liked. That’s never stopped me though! I’ve always loved them, and always will!
