I've been around horses for a long time, heck, I've been around a long time
Started taking lessons when I was 11, old German style riding school, at 15 helped establish a riding stable (which still exists, btw), then I stopped for a few years, at 23 I couldn't stand it any longer, and got my very first horse, an OTTB. He taught me so much and got me hooked on hot-blooded horses. My second horse was also an OTTB, and the others just kept coming
For several years I had a herd of 14, bred Arabians. Leaving Germany, I took only 3 with me, but was quickly up to 5 again
, a rescue here and there.
Now I'm down to two, enjoying it immensely, finally having time to ride.
My favourite subjects are feed(hello PunksTank), hooves and general care, and alternative therapies.
Since I grew up with dressage, im still strongly influenced by it, therefore like Spanish and Vaquero style.
Im more or less constantly on this forum, thanks to having a smartphone, and really enjoy it.
