Howdy from Texas

Hey y'all!
I am a newbie here, but not to the horse world. I have been riding and working with horses for about 10 years now. I started working as a horse trainer and barn manager for a non-profit animal assisted therapy center about a year and a half ago and I have loved every minute of it.

I am only 19, but I try my hardest at my job and am hoping to expand my knowledge through college and stay working in the horse business as long as I can. I was told in high school that I should keep horses as a hobby and there was no way that I would succeed trying to live my dream of working in the horse world. Which means I am striving my hardest to prove everyone wrong. Haha

I train mostly natural horsemanship because most of our horses are rescues and respond better to it. I don't train driving, but I do drive horse and cart when I get the chance.

I am so excited about joining and can't wait to get started

Howdy and welcome from another fellow Texan .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yep that is Miss Molly the mule with her wild mane. She is one of two mules we have and both can be well... as stubborn as a mule.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone

Ok well here you go... You asked for them lol


Here is my 15.2hh Curly Paint named Buddy next to the newest rescue almost 18hh Jack Daniels.


Here are the Old Ladies lol all 3 are rescues. The Paint in the back is Abby, the Sorrel in the middle is Lady Belle, and lase one is Francis our other mule.


Another current rescue is this little Cremello named Shadowfax. He is skinny, but gaining weight and loving being out of the hell hole he was in.


Here is a better picture of Miss Molly after her spring haircut.
