I have had horses my entire life. For the first several years growing up, I had no professional training, just the school of hard knocks. I made a lot of mistakes but had some fabulous horses that didn't kill me. I study and love natural horsemanship. I have had lower level dressage training over several years but never had an experienced horse to learn more so that just fizzled out. I own my own small horse farm/boarding business. I have bred, trained and sold a few. Now I just trail ride but still love the big warmbloods and ride my 17+hh Trakehner gelding on the trails. My friends joke that I break the branches for them. This horse is a real challenge for me. I am an equine specialist for a large company and I am very passionate about horse issues and events. I like to get involved.
