About My Blog
Your comments are greatly appreciated and I will write posts based on the comments my readers leave. If you don't see a topic on my site that you would like to know more about that I may be experienced in, let me know!
I am a Midwestern Christian girl, raised on a farm and taught at a young age how to work. I love animals, especially horses, but also have raised numerous kinds of poultry (learn more on my poultry blog), cattle and a few other miscellaneous animals over the years.
I started riding horse when I was 11 years old as a shy and timid young girl, my mom signed me up for 4-H horse and it all went from there. Then I started training. Zorro was the first horse I enrolled in the 4-H horse training program. This was an excellent experience and in this program I won 3 state trips with Zorro and all three times placed first in our training class. The training program taught me a lot and really encouraged me in my training journey.
I believe training takes time, and building of a relationship. In the show ring or on the trail, you should be able to read your horse and expect his every move. Not only does this make it a safer ride, but it also looks very impressive to your audience, a plus for showing off your skills to your firends or the judge. When you really know your horse, you are able to add those extras in the show ring, those extras that really impress the judge. My blog is open for anyone to read, I also have a free e-mail newsletter you can sign up for.
All around horses are my goal. Currently I own
6 (now 4) horses, all of them are trained or in training to do multiple disciplines. My training branches into many directions, but all stems down to a simple dressage core. My main focus for showing is Western Pleasure and English Pleasure on the flat. I show Quarter Horses now, but have shown and had experience training Arabians too. My horses also do basic low jumps, bareback riding, bridleless when they are ready and much more. The minis (which I have now sold) mainly jump in hand and drive, but occasionally give a little visitor a ride. Many of the horses also know how to work cattle.
I am not a professional horse trainer, if you want professional advice you need to go to them. I am just an avid horse lover that spends many hours studying and training them. I am not responsible for anything that happens because you read my blog.
