2007 15.3hh Welsh Section D mare. I've owned Ginger since I bought her sight unseen as a project in 2011. This blog started as a way to chronicle our training progress and adventures together. I had hoped to event Ginger, but she's an anxious type and so far we both prefer the predictability of dressage together, although we're certainly not averse to the odd trail ride. She's known variously as Ms Gingersnap, Ginny, and Big Mare, but will answer happily to any name provided you have her favorite peppermint treats. She's travelled around Western Canada with me the past few years and is known for her big personality and kind nature.
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. We're working hard to turn her lazy bum into my all around fun (dare I hope, eventing?) pony, since she is naturally steady and bold and always up for a challenge! Bridget is Ginger's opposite in nearly every way, so the two of them compliment each other perfectly! Bridget's aliases include Midget and (the) Midge.
Mid 30's 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 yet again, and by happy coincidence the barn closest to my new job was an eventing barn. I'm doing my best to catch up and learn all the things in hopes of getting out competing in 2016. 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.
