Hello from Washington State!

I've been a part of the forum for a while now, but have never actually seen the "meet the community" section! So, a little about myself:

I was blessed to grow up surrounded by horses. My grandpa is an avid horseman, and passed his passion on to me. He bred quarter horses while I was growing up, and those horses really kick started my "horse-craziness." I grew up mostly trail riding and attending a few horsemanship clinics. While in college, a worked at two different horseback trail ride operations for the summer as a wrangler- one in Lake Tahoe and one up on White Pass in Washington.

I am now back in Yakima after graduating from WSU with a bachelors in Animal Science. Unfortunately, I have yet to find my "dream job" in the equine industry, so am instead working at my family's trucking company. It's a stable, flexible job that pays the bills, so it works for now. I also got introduced to cutting a couple years ago - my grandpa bought a 2 year old cutting bred filly and got her started in cutting training, so I decided to start taking lessons as well just to try something different. I was HOOKED. I have since purchased my own cutting horse, and we show in mostly local club shows, along with a few NCHA shows, and work with a trainer year round. It is so much fun, and I'm having a blast!

That's about all I can think of, feel free to ask questions! Oh, and here's a few pics, because everyone loves pictures....

Welcome to the forum! Great pictures. You have had lots of great horse experiences. Wasn't Lake Tahoe lovely? I grew up in Sacramento & LT was a great place to go to cool off in the summer.

haha! Gotta love Moxee ;) I actually would not call myself an english rider - that is Albert - I exercised him for a lady for a couple of years, and ended up just using her english tack. I have never had any lessons english, so it was kind of interesting getting used to it! It was kind of fun to switch it up for a little bit though :) And the picture where I am on him is at the boarding stable where he is at. If you are referring to the "mountain" picture, that is actually up on White Pass at the stable I worked at for the summer. The owner still lets us go up there and use the trails heading out of their camp!
