About the Blog

This blog is recently new and I have been preparing and working on it since the middle of February 2017, with a lot of mistakes and failed attempts. I’m new to the website making, blogging scene. Biggest tip if you decide to start a website or blog, have back ups and save your articles that you write. People apparently hack websites and delete things… sometimes the whole website. Why I don’t know.

Anyone who wants to read it is more than welcome. This site is created for people who are interested in learning more about horsemanship, want to get started in horseback riding, want to improve in their riding skills, and riders that want to learn more about horse ownership.

What I Hope this Blog Will Do For You.

I hope that this blog will give you  the information you are looking for, inspire you to continue on and progress in your riding, and maybe prepare you for the amazing but big responsibility of horse ownership.

I hope for this blog to be a place of community and belonging, where you can share your questions and experiences. I’m here to make friends and help people out starting or continuing their equestrian journeys.
