My name is Kate, I'm a new (youth) member, and I'm a horseaholic.
I'm a tween growing up on a Quarter Horse ranch in the Rockies. I have three horses of my own (and the ranch has a few too many to keep track of.
): 'Big', a sorrel overo gelding, aka my partner in crime that I do EVERYTHING with, 'Hootie', a "slightly tempermental
" copper-y palomino quarter horse mare, and 'Ivy', my cute new QH weanling who will hopefully be my next reiner.
I've been showing/competing since I was eight, and I love it. I've done a little bit of everything, from reining to hunters, from barrel racing to in-hand, from western pleasure to dressage - you get the picture.
I'm currently mostly involved in western performance, mainly reining. I've only been highly involved in the reining world for about a year, and I think I still have a lot to learn! I also collect Breyer model horses.
Outside of horses, I don't have much of a life, really.
But I do enjoy drawing, painting, photography, and spending time with friends.
Other than horses, I have two big dogs - A HUGE English mastiff x Great Dane cross, and a Rottie mix. Also barn cats and a salt water aquarium. :) Anyway, I'm not too great at introductions, but I love meeting new people so please feel free to strike up a conversation! :)
