2009 14.1hh Welsh Section D mare. What can I say, I liked Ginger so much I brought another Welsh Cob home in September 2014! Bridget came with a bit of driving training, but not much else. Originally bought as a fun project and confidence booster when I was struggling with confidence on Ginger, B has grown on me and is here to stay. We've had success turning her lazy bum into a fun all around pony, and Bridget is now my go to ride for everything from eventing to dressage to western games. Not bad for a pony I bought solely because she was quiet and cute! Bridget is Ginger's opposite in nearly every way, so the two of them compliment each other perfectly. Bridget's aliases include B, Midget and (the) Midge.
Professional in the tech world, living on the west coast. I have a wonderful husband, G, who loves my horses as much as I do, and a cat who probably wouldn't like them at all. I grew up riding ponies with little to no supervision in the middle of nowhere and somehow survived. It was only once I grew up and got a real job that I bought my first horse that I started to try to learn to ride 'properly'. I've mostly learned what I do know via the trials and tribulations of the multiple project horses I bought to fund my hobby. In spring of 2015 I moved for work yet again, and by happy coincidence the barn closest to my new job was an eventing barn with an excellent coach. The learning curve is steep, but I'm having fun! I'm previously known as Happy Pony in the Blogosphere, but that got awkward with two ponies, one of which is kind of angry, so my handle is now my name: Teresa, or T.
Husband. Nicest person I've ever met. Animal lover, and #1 supporter of Team Bridget.
My coach. Previous upper level eventer and eventing coach extraordinaire, who now also rides dressage and is great at riding and coaching that too. I'd be envious if I didn't know how hard she works for it.
My coach's lovely and opinionated upper level dressage prospect. I sometimes take lessons on her to help my own riding and training with Bridget as they're quite similar temperament wise, but Audrey is 'more' : More mare 'tude, further along training wise, and a lot more talented. She has much to teach me.
Infrequently mentioned, a barn friend's gigantic grey 3/4 TB event mare that I exercise once a week when I'm in the area. She's big and bold, but a cuddly sweetheart once you earn her affection. She's also a sometimes subject of my lesson recaps - another one that has much to teach me!
