I am a classical dressage trainer/rider/instructor who spent 5 years studying in Germany. I have continued my education over the years and currently ride with Dr. Thomas Ritter. I have an 11-year-old Hanoverian trained to Intermediare I and have several up and coming talented young horses whom I look forward to showing this coming year. I also enjoy doing other things with my horses such as trail riding and schooling cross country.
It is no easy task, what we do. I have cried tears of sorrow and tears of joy. But I would not stop what I am doing as long as there is one horse who needs help. I will check out Craig Stevens. I would say that my work may be easier than actually running a facility. Jerry Finch is the president of Habitat for Horses and I have shared a tear or two with him. He is an amazing person with a heart the size of Texas. I'm sure you are cut out of the same mold as he. Did you have anything to do with the PMU rehomings?
I think you have a tough job being a cruelty investigator! good for you! I ride with Craig Stevens, you can Google his name and his website will come up. If you check my site you will see that I run an Equine Rehab facility here in Canada, and have rescued and rebuilt hundreds of horses in my lifetime! Nice to meet you here on Barnmice! Cheers, Ann.
