New here, Texas resident and western rider/trainer =)
Hi! My name is Victoria. I am an upcoming 25 year old single mom to a 4 year old cowgirl in the making. =) I am new here and thought I'd post here to maybe meet some fellow riders!
I have been training since I was given my first horse at age 11. My then riding partner taught me the basics of barrel racing/playday events, and I trained my gelding from there. Ever since, all my horses came to me either green or in the basics of training and I would then train them on the patterns and compete with them. I recently have had about a 3 year break in training/serious riding/and competing.
Last year I came into the opportunity to revive and manage a stable, and have been doing so ever since. I now have a 4 year old AQHA mare and an approx. 10 year old rescue Qh-arab cross gelding.
I ride western and enjoy trails, team penning, training, and light work on the barrel patterns.
Despite how long I've ridden and competed, I know now how hard it can be to get back into riding shape after several years, but it continues to be the love of my life!
