I always wanted a horse when I was little. I began taking riding lessons when I was 8 and my family got our first horse when I was 9. I have loved working with them ever since. I’ve worked as a side walker or horse leader in therapeutic riding for children with special needs for the past 5 years.
I’ve enjoyed working with my sisters, conditioning our horses for therapeutic riding. Last year, I was blessed to attend a colt-starting clinic for several months and I knew that I wanted to start another horse soon.
I am thrilled to be in the challenge this year and am committed to giving my horse the time, patience, love, and attention it needs to be ready for it’s constant home. I think rescued horses deserve a chance to be someone’s forever friend, not an old castaway.
I’ve been blessed to have many wonderful mentors teaching me along the way. I love the principles behind natural horsemanship and how the lessons also apply to human life. Two of my favorite Parelli quotes are:
“If your horse says ‘no’, you either asked the question wrong, or asked the wrong question.”
“A horse doesn’t care how much you know, until he knows how much you care.”
