I LOVE this thread. Everyone has awesome pictures and beautiful horses! I'm an equestrian, since 8 years old! I was brought up riding a mixture of english(hunter/jumper style) and western pleasure, trying to be a well rounded rider. But I've fallen in love with dressage as I've grown up. My college riding career is more geared towards dressage and eventing.
I ride with my university's IHSA and their drill team. We are currently choreographing a production of Around the World in 80 days.. I love drill riding! I compete as an individual too in Combined Training/Eventing shows.
Here are some pics of my competitions and drill:
George & I - Drill Team 2010 (we rode to Mama Mia!)
Skyler Fame & I- Dressage Schooling
Thurston & I - Training this young BIG guy :)
Kirk & I- CT Show Spring 2009 (he's very stylish in zebra print)
George & I - Taking the blue ribbon at Fenridge Dressage
Kirk & I - CT Show Fall 2010
I'm finishing my bachelor's degree in Equine Management this year and getting my certification in Equine Massage. Horses are my life!
