Riding - almost 2 decades! And lots and lots of books and DVDs.
Currently, what do you do with horses:
Right now, we're just working on the basics. He's off the track as of Sept '08, and so we're just working on getting off of "track mode." Eventually he'll be my hunter, hopefully 3' - 3'6"
What is your past with horses (how you fell in love, previous horses, ect):
I fell in love when I was 3 when I watched Black Beauty... I begged my (non-horsey) parents for a year before they got me into riding (almost nobody would take a kid that young) and I've been riding ever since.
My background is as a Hunter rider.... my second love is Dressage... and I've dabbled in nearly everything (showing) - from western pleasure to driving to barrels....
What do you do that is horse related when you aren't around horses:
I work at a tack shop... so I talk horses a LOT! I also frequent this forum... a LOT.. haha. I read, watch videos, and talk...
What are your future plans/dreams with horses:
I hope that Denny will take me far in the hunter ring... other than that, I want to own a barn in the near future and build my name up as a trainer.
If you could breed anyone breed of horses it would be:
Andalusians, Friesians, Fjords, or (if they weren't so common...maybe) Thoroughbreds.
