Thanks for joining me! Let me start by telling you a little about myself.
Like many young girls, I grew up begging for a pony. My father had a friend that owned 2 Shetlands, so after wearing him down, he took me to see them. I begged and begged to ride and proceeded to fall off this ornery pony 3 times before the day was done. According to my dad, he knew he had a problem when I climbed back on each time.
Fast forward many years of riding lessons and eating dirt countless times and we arrive here. As I sit here reflecting on the many adventures this sport has allowed, I find myself smiling and remembering everything I’ve learned. Whether it be from a trainer, friend, or one of the many horses I’ve been lucky enough to experience. Each lesson has brought me to where I am today and I wouldn’t be the person I am without them.
I hope to share these lessons with you and also plan to share some of the valuable knowledge I’ve learned along the way!
“You’re making the transition from being students and learning to being able to teach your horse. Before, you needed the education and a way to develop your skills. Now, you’re going to need to be responsible and the horse’s career is going to become the most important part of your program. You’re still going to develop your skills, but the development of your horse’s skills is going to become more important.”
