I think my sheer experience is a huge qualification! I also read about horses daily and know quite a bit about things I haven't even done yet.
I rode horses for 12 years previously as both an English and Western discipline rider, though I specialize in rodeo events and rode with a 3-time qualifier for the Great Lakes Circuit Finals Rodeo for many years. I have a vested interest in reining and western pleasure horses as well. I had five horses on my property that I took care of and rode daily, all quarter horses. I had to sell off my horses due to illness but am ready to get back in the saddle!
I prefer to ride Western but can ride either; I feel like I am capable of doing just about anything in or out of the saddle, though the more I can learn the better I'll do!
I've competed in gymkhanas and gaming shows in Barrel Racing and other timed events.
