Hey everyone - I'm Katie, from Phoenix, Arizona. Have always been horse crazy from the moment I was born, much to the dismay of my parents. Would read anything and everything horse related that I could get my hands on and even would walk a couple miles to go visit neighbors horses when I could get away from classwork. (Procrastinate, rather.) Just recently found myself an owner of a somewhat bratty 3 year old unregistered quarter horse mare, who I named Echo. Her ground manners suck and she is very antsy but I've only had her a week (give or take) and we've already gotten down the personal space and tying nicely - we will be really getting into her training here in a day or two once my ankle heals up. Can't wait to see the wonderful horse I know she can be. Anyway, hi again! Glad to be here among people who share a similar passion.
