Hi, I'm Sophie.. I am British, but live in Germany with my parents (woohoo for cheap rent!) and I'm 20 years old. I was raised in Germany and taught to ride out here, however my German is somewhat limited to horse-y German.
I started riding at 14, the whole family started. My mum and dad then purchased our first horse, Josie, and we'v ehad her 6 whole, long, vet bill filled years.
I broke my shoulder in 07, and then we bought Belle, a 5yo TBx who was fun and great to get my confidence back, but too much potential so sold her on.
We then bought Do It Again, my old schoolmaster who taught me pretty much everything I know. I sold him in May to a very good friend who is now being taught too.
In June I bought the giraffe-camel-horse Duffy. She's my first young horse that will be trained properly. She's a doll, she's a nightmare, she can be perfect or an absolute pig. At 18.1hh I have fallen off her once, and don't want to relive that if at all possible!
We have three dogs, but one is 'mine' my nutter 3yo English Setter Rufus who wsa BORN cute. No joke.
I have no pictures right now, but there are some on my page. When I finish work I will put some on :)
