Cool Member's Bios (Please Add Yours!)

Here is a place where we can put all of our Biographies in one easily accessible area. That way the new members can easily become a part of our Horse Forum family and make things smoother. It's just an idea though, so I'm ok if it fails. If it goes well, Sticky maybe?

Anyway, here are some questions I thought we could all answer that just tell about ourselves so we can learn about each other with out going to everyone's profiles or making new threads. Hopefully there aren't too many questions! Feel free to copy this and past it for your own use!

Mlkarel2010's Bio

Username: Mlkarel2010

Why you chose it and what it means:

it's easy to remember and simple because it's the same as my email. Everyone was choosing that for their email (initials and name then an important year)

How you came across the HF:

I got bored one day and remembered I liked a forum I was on many years back. So I googled "Horse Forum" and found this and it's stuck since.

What sections to you go to the most:


I'm partial to the Training, Critique, Tack and Equipment, Western Riding, Riding, Pictures, Horse Chat, and all the Off topics.

How did you gain your horsey knowledge (books, DVDs, lessons, ect):


I've gained my knowledge in many ways: magazines, lessons, DVDs, TV shows, books, apprenticing, personal experience and of course the internet

Currently, what do you do with horses:

Right now I ride and train other people's horses and show a little bit.

What is your past with horses (how you fell in love, previous horses, ect):

When I was two the pony rides game to town. I fell in love then (it's even on video). Then later when I was 6 I took lessons until I was 8 and we couldn't afford to drive an hour and a half every Saturday and pay for lessons because we bought a new house. Then I rode and worked with a few horses a local had. Finally, my horsey low was over and a year and a half ago I began working with a horse trainer. I haven't owned any horses, but my childhood favorites were Prince (the first pony I rode) and Luke (the coolest lesson horse and he loved me).

What do you do that is horse related when you aren't around horses:


Get on here, obviously. I also am making "Horse Binders" that have all the horse stuff I know about in them so I can reference them easily when I need to. I make tack of my own as well.

What are your future plans/dreams with horses:

I really want to own my own horse. Right now I want to get my Degree in Animal Science with an Equine Science focus. I'd really love to open my own horse business someday.

If you could breed anyone breed of horses it would be:

Fresians

The Name(s) of your favorite horse(s):

At the moment it would be Jimmy and Red (he's technically a mule)

Other (anything else you want to share):

I have a soft spot for mules and donkeys

Username: TralissaAndalusians

Why you chose it and what it means: Because I think NiNo was taken, which is the username I use on all forums I'm a member of, but obviously they don't use it (Bothers me quite a bit, hehe)

How you came across the HF: I can't actually remember... I think it was from a friend on another horse forum I am a member of.

What sections to you go to the most: I don't exactly post all that much, but I lurk. I do visit most of the forums though.

How did you gain your horsey knowledge (books, DVDs, lessons, ect): My mum had owned horses when she was younger, so she helped me out load's, and I spent most of my time reading books on horsecare and so on, and then before I got my first 2 horses together, I was looking after next doors pony because their daughter couldn't be bothered to see to him, so I did him for her. So that was my expierience in learning about them.

Currently, what do you do with horses: Riding wise? I havn't been riding at all that much, but when I do, I only trail ride, basically because there's hardly anything else to do around here.

What is your past with horses (how you fell in love, previous horses, ect): My mum got me into horses. She used to stop on roadsides and take me to see the horses and so on, and just taught me about them as we went along. And she used to buy me all horse toy's and books and so on, and I just fell in love with them.

What do you do that is horse related when you aren't around horses: Hehe, basically go online horses forums and talk to friends about horses or teach some people about them if their interested, I also draw equines and so on, and I love reading up on Equine photography, as I am very much into that.

What are your future plans/dreams with horses: Well, I breed horses with my mum, which is my dream, but I'm also interested in becoming an Equine photographer, since everyone thinks I'm a natural with it all.

If you could breed anyone breed of horses it would be: I already breed my dream horse, and they are Andalusians.

The Name(s) of your favorite horse(s): What? My own horses? I can't choose a favourite out of them :o Their all my favourite, hehe.

Other (anything else you want to share): Not that I can think of, hehe.

Username: Britt

Why you chose it and what it means: My first name is Brittany, I have never liked the 'any' part of it and have been trying to shorten it down to 'Britt' for a few years now... I'm called 'Britt' by a lot of people, and figured that it'd be simple and easy to remember on here.

How you came across the HF: I was looking on the Google search engine for another horse forum to join and it was the first one that popped up.

What sections to you go to the most: I'm partial to the Grooming section, the general Riding section, and the Breeds section.

How did you gain your horsey knowledge (books, DVDs, lessons, ect): I'm basically a self taught person who was lucky to have horses in the blood and a great friend who lives right down the road breeds my favorite breed of horses and gives me training advice and helps when I ask for it... I also learned a lot through magazines and horse books I've acquired through the years and from RFD-TV, though we've only had cable for a year now.

Currently, what do you do with horses: I'm currently training my coming 3 year old gelding and I trail ride and pleasure ride for my own fun and benefit with my 15 year old mare.

What is your past with horses (how you fell in love, previous horses, ect): I was born into a horsey family, but we didn't have many horses until I was about nine-ish... and even then we only rode about twice a year. My first ride was when I was just a few months old with my mum and favorite (deceased) great uncle holding me on my great uncles old horse and leading me around the Lot. I only began trail riding a lot like I do now when I was about eleven. I rode my other great uncles horse Mo, and in all senses of the word, he was my 'first' horse... He was the horse I really learned to ride on. I got my mare when I was between twelve and thirteen. She was only greenbroke, very stubborn, bucky, gun-shy, hated men, and had learned that if she didn't want to work, all she had to do was intimidate her riders and they'd get off. I did all her training and now she's the best horse out of the five we have in the pasture. For my sixteenth birthday... while most sixteen year olds would get a car, my uncle bred my mare for me for my 'big birthday present' and she foaled just five days before I turned sixteen. I fell in love with Dakota as soon as I saw him... I even had him named before I ever saw him or knew what color he was, or even knew what gender he was. My uncle who bred my mare died the day before Dakota turned a year old, and he always had a running bet with the rest of the family on how Dakota would never willingly disobey or hurt me, and now it's become somewhat of my responsibility to ensure that he doesn't lose his bet, even though he's dead... in my eyes, by making sure that Dakota turns out to be the best horse I can ask for, I'm honoring my uncles name, because it was him who bred my mare for me to even get Dakota, even though everyone in our family was against it.

What do you do that is horse related when you aren't around horses: I read horse magazines and books, watch RFD-TV, and chat online with my horse friens (aka, I'm on the two forums I'm a member of).

What are your future plans/dreams with horses: I want to eventually get a horse I can show and learn to show in Western Pleasure, and maybe Showjumping... if I can ever learn how to jump with an english saddle, lol... I also wouldn't mind rescueing horses if I was sure that I could provide the best care for them, and I'd like to eventually show Tennessee Walkers, as they are my favorite breed.

If you could breed anyone breed of horses it would be: It would most definitely be Tennessee Walkers... but I'm not adverse to Quarterhorses.

The Name(s) of your favorite horse(s): Currently, my favorite horses are my two; Gypsie and Dakota.

Other (anything else you want to share): I'm extremely partial to bay horses...

Username: RusticWildFire

Why you chose it and what it means:
I don't really know lol. It was just some words.

How you came across the HF:
Google search for a horse forum

What sections to you go to the most:
I just go to new posts. But I like the pictures the most.

How did you gain your horsey knowledge (books, DVDs, lessons, ect):
4-H (leader, other members), books, lessons

Currently, what do you do with horses: Just trail ride and ride for fun. No more shows. I don't like competition.

What is your past with horses (how you fell in love, previous horses, ect):
I've loved them since I was little. Always wanted one. I joined a brand new 4-H group for animals in 6th grade and in 7th grade I started taking lessons from a lady who worked with my mom as our 4-H group had grown so much there wasn't enough time for our leader to teach us all about horse riding. (We had cows, chickens, sheep etc there too) My mom mentioned to the lady who was giving me lessons that we wanted to get a horse in the next year or so and the next week she came up with Scooter for us. He sounded wonderful so we went to look at him and couldn't pass him up. So, I got him a couple of weeks later and boarded him there until we were ready for him at my house. I had him alone for a few years..did a lot of showing and trail riding. I advanced a lot on him and was ready for a bit more of a challenge. There was a horse at our 4-H barn who didn't have anyone to ride him (he was 3). The kid who bought him bought him to get closer to a girl who had just bought a young paint horse as well and after he found out it wouldn't work out with the girl (she wanted nothing to do with the guy) he abandoned him pretty much. He needed a lot of work and I just adored him from afar so I was given the chance to work with him. I did and he came a really long way and turned from a wild-hard to handle-spunky young horse into a super calm, friendly horse. We had a great connection so she let me lease him. A couple of years later when I got too busy for 4-H we bought him from her so he's mine forever now! (That's Hunter)

What do you do that is horse related when you aren't around horses:
surf the forum!!! Oh yeah, and read horse books and magazines too.

What are your future plans/dreams with horses:
After school I want to make some money, get some land and have a couple of horses. A little hobby farm.

If you could breed anyone breed of horses it would be:
Ooh probably paints. They're so pretty.

The Name(s) of your favorite horse(s):
Scooter and Hunter, of course!

Other (anything else you want to share):
I don't think I have anything else! I guess I could add that I have (along with my 2 horses) 4 sheep, 3 cats, 1 rabbit and 1 pet steer.

Username: Andi

Why you chose it and what it means: Its my real name, I am not really into internet nicknames.

How you came across the HF: Bored one day and googled for a forum for horses. I wanted an Australian one but there were no good ones, so I used this and I like it now.

What sections to you go to the most: Training, English Riding, Critique, General Off Topic, and others.

How did you gain your horsey knowledge (books, DVDs, lessons, ect): I started horse riding lessons at a school, read heaps of books, got my own, pony club, more books, more lessons

Currently, what do you do with horses: I'm training mine and want to break her myself in the next few months.

What is your past with horses (how you fell in love, previous horses, ect): I always liked horses, you know at the Easter show I would go on the pony ride. My parents said they wanted me to do one extra curricular activity. I broke my finger in gymnastics and they said why don't you try horse riding. My first lesson was on a Shetland called Sam, he was so old and had a broken tail bone. I loved horses ever since then. I did one lesson a week, then two and was going to do three and my mum thought it would be cheaper to buy a horse. She was wrong. My first horse taught me how to "really" ride, in a way that no riding school horse could teach. He was too much for me, would throw me off his shoulder every other week, refuse jumps, bolt, not move etc, till I learnt how to stay and how to ride and then it was all good. Did pony club, competed in heaps of gymkanas. Then I discovered how good jumping way. I actually remember my first jump ever. It was on a riding school pony called Gaye who was black and maybe 14 hands. It was a little step up, maybe 30cm, and she jumped it big and I remember it felt like flying. Once I knew my first horse, Billi, would always hate jumping, I bought a TB who was trained at jumping and who taught me to jump properly. He was well trained but I hated him. Competed in some jumping, got heaps of lessons. Bought a rising two year old Clydie who was brilliant, but then got out of horses and sold her.

What do you do that is horse related when you aren't around horses:
Nothing.

What are your future plans/dreams with horses:
I would really like a career training horses or something. I don't know how feasible it is. I would love to be a top level eventer. I love cross country and showjumping.

If you could breed anyone breed of horses it would be: Clydesdale crosses. I love them to pieces. I wouldn't mind a couple of Anglo's on the side. And just one Gypsy Vanner, just because they are pretty.

The Name(s) of your favorite horse(s):
My horse has no name, but I call her "Girl". She's a 3 year old Anglo. My favourite horse of all time is my old one Jezabella, who is now 6 going on 7, and in 1/4 Clydie cross TB.

Other (anything else you want to share): Not really. :)
