A woman (owner) is in my circle of horse people and we know a lot of the same people. My name was brought up and people saying I was a really good rider and had started a few horses with good results.. The trainer (actually Rob on HoFo) contacted me and we went back and forth for a week or so, I sent he and Owner videos of me riding and they liked what they saw.. This has been in the works for a month now and I've talked to Owner a lot about it, went and rode with her, she said she loved me and asked if I could even start before Rob moved over from Lousiana at the beginning of February, starting the two small mares.. I just lucked into the job and had good references and riding a lot of disciplines, not just barrels and the fact I've worked at barns and just have a lot of experience in different things. So, I'm super excited about it and really excited about competing in a new discipline, adding that to my belt.. I guess it really shows what a good reputation can do for you.
MHF you know it! I'd love to have you down again and maybe ride a few this time. You can bring Knothead with you and take Hickory home with ya. ;)
