I figure an introduction is in order!
I'm creating a blog in order to talk about my horses, horse experiences, what I've learned, and to hopefully be able to look back and remember things I learned.
I'm Marissa. I'm currently 20 years old, and only started riding about a year ago. I grew up doing gymnastics, and caught on to riding super quickly. In the short year that I have been riding, I started with lessons and quickly moved onto leasing and showing. I have ridden many different breeds of horses, dealt with all sorts of temperaments, etc. I have so much more to learn! I hope to be able to pass on the silly tidbits I've learned to other people!
I live in central california, and I completely caught the horse bug. I love everything about them! I really believe that how much effort you put into horses, is how quickly you will learn and grow as a horse person. I think that good horsemanship is the most important thing to learning and growing!
I ride western, but have dabbled in english and I think I am going to continue dipping my toes into the shark infested waters of prissy english riders. (No offense to cool english riders, I simply hate when they have that stigma of being better than a western rider, simply because we have a different seat or way of riding.)
Hope that gives you a little insight into me!
