Riding

When I was 9 years old, I became a rider.

I remember always begging my mom about wanting to take ballet lessons until the day came that she saw an ad in the local paper about a new riding stable opening up.  She asked me if I would be interested in trying riding lessons and I said ‘sure’. After that first lesson, I was hooked.

I rode many horses/ponies over the years…

Sam I Am – aka. Sam

Hope For A Breeze – aka. Shear-ra

Forget Me Not – aka. Snuffy/aka. my true pony love

Franklin (first pony training project)

The Unsinkable Molly Brown – aka. Molly

French Counsel – aka.Counsel (first horse training project)

Reckless Dreamer – aka. Dreamer

Gailee’s Painted Cover – aka. Gailee (almost bought her)

And then one day, in the summer of 2000, something amazing happened. My parents decided it was time to buy me my own horse.  I tried out a few, but it wasn’t long until Chelsea was mine.

July 27, 2000 I became a horse owner.

My Lady Chelsea, the 4 y/o registered thoroughbred mare, was all mine.

11 years later, she’s still my girl.

I try to get out and ride Chelsea at least 3-4 times a week and definitely don’t see myself stopping any time soon.
