My name is Hillary and I am a 20 something girl making my way in the real world. I have been riding on and off since I was 8 years old when my parents finally caved in and gave me riding lessons for my birthday. However, I have been horse crazy as long as I can remember.
When I was 16yo I got my first horse. I sold him in January 2012 and in March of 2012 I purchased a lovely Belgian Warmblood from Bannockburn Farm. He spent Nov 2014 through Feb 2016 exploring jumper land with someone else but he is back with me now and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds for us.
In early July of 2015 another star joined the show. Annie is a 2012 model Thoroughbred that I purchased off the track. I found her by pure chance and I can’t believe how lucky I got! We compete in the jumper ring and eventing land and she is proving to be really talented so far!
In addition to riding I also have three dogs. I affectionately refer to them as the gremlin, the crack head, and the baby bear… That is what happens when you have a French Bulldog, an Australian Shepherd, and a German Shepherd though! They keep us on our toes and provide non stop entertainment.
I am also married to the man of my dreams and there will certainly be unrelated posts about our life and adventures together.
This blog typically serves no rhyme or reason but will be a place to track my riding progress, share reviews on various horse related items (tack ho in the house), and often times share bits about our life. 🙂
