In my most recent job with horses, I have fed horses, caught them from the fields, groomed, tacked, lunged, schooled, trained youngsters on the ground, retrained horses, taught children (5+) and adults as well as disabled individuals and lead trails.
I have an inborn love for horses. My first horse was a TB mare. She taught me everything in regards to equine first aid. I know how to pultice, wrap legs, clean wounds soak feet, and rehab a horse with a broken hock. Since then, Ive worked with a yearling, on the ground and restarted a mustang pony mare undersaddle as well as schooling our trail horses for "tune ups".
I am very confident in my skills with handling horses of all ages and temperaments. However, I know I have much to learn and love to take in as much as possible. I'm friendly and motivated and always have a goal in mind for myself and any horse I work with. Seeing their progress in training and how well they are taken care of is what I live for. Problem solving is a specialty of mine and I will use my down time to research different ways to go about training if one way does not quite click.
I have ridden English since I was 7 years old. I grew up doing the local "C" show circut. My heart was not into showing and was more into being with horses, so I stopped competitive riding at 17. I had an older mare who could no longer jump and we trained in dressage and ended up doing western pleasure as well. Since then I have ridden primarily western, but still ride English occasionally. I have learned how to barrel race and start horses under saddle.
During my years of showing locally, I have received many champion ribbons and reserve as well. One of the "A" rated shows I completed in, I got called back in all of my jumping classes as well as won 3rd in the hack against 30 or so horses. With an older TB mare I had, we competed in everything from hunters and equitation to western pleasure and trail classes. I trained her from English to Western pleasure myself and we won champion in our first show.
