Hello. I just thought I'd introduce myself.
I am Marie. I live in the wonderful state of Kentucky, and have Saddlebreds. My family raises, trains, sells, and shows. It is the family business. I work with the broodmares and babies up until the foals are to be saddletrained. I have just started showing yearlings in hand, and I love it.
Any questions about Saddlebreds or Saddleseat riding, I would be glad to help you find the answers.
I haven't ridden in a long time, but am hoping to get back into it. All we have are babies. The only horses I can ride, are in thier 20s and I just wouldn't feel right putting in some serious training hours in on them. I am becoming involved with the Saddlebred Rescue, and have my eye on a few of the horses there. Hopefully, by late summer this year I will be able to adopt. I do greatly enjoy driving though.
I am currently looking for a Standardbred Road Horse as well. I found one prospect that even my dad likes, so he has promise. I have wanted one since I was eight. Maybe this one I have found will work out.
I personally own three dogs. A tri colored sheltie female, a black lab mix male, and a black female pug.
And I'm sure I will be the only one on here who has....Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. I absolutely love them. After an attack by my cat, I now have three females and one male Tiger Hissers. They are such fascinating little creatures. Mine are not fully matured yet, and my females are slightly over two inches long, and my male hasn't reached two yet. The houscat knocked over thier enclosure a couple days ago and killed two of them, a large male and a small immature male. I was extremely upset.
I hope I like it here, and I also hope that I have something to give to this forum.
Have a great day and I look forward to meeting you.
