Greetings from Washington!
Hello there Horse Forum community! : ) I'm Katie, and I'm from Matlock, Washington. I'm seventeen, and have been around horses for most of my life, but I didn't start riding until seven years ago, and started taking lesson around that time. I've spent most of my time since then devoted to learning as much as I can about horses, training, riding, and just about everything else! I have a few other hobbies aside from horses, which include writing((I never finish anything I start though, haha!)), making money, and cooking. Horses are my favorite of these though, and you can bet most of my time is spent with my horse. : )
I have one horse, a quarter horse gelding named Missile. He's my 'first' horse, though I had a few other horses I cared for and rode prior to him. He is six years old, and I was lucky enough to find my perfect horse so early in both of our lives. Even if he is a knuckle head sometimes and tries to pull my shoulder out of it's socket or get away with cheating through a training session, haha!
Well, that's about me in a nutshell! Haha, I'm quite glad to have found a horse community that is active and friendly, and I'm looking forward to getting to know the place and the people better! : )
