When I was 9 years old I met my childhood best friend and our adventures with horses began. Initially, we had about thirty My Little Pony plastic toys and took care of them as if they were real. The following year we started spending time with her dad’s barely trained Thoroughbreds riding in the foothills of Cochrane, Alberta. The year after that I began working at a barn with over 150 horses and spent as much time as possible at the ranch after school. The owner of the ranch taught me how to barrel race on Codger, a reliable, older Heinz 57 gelding who took care of me and endured my lack of knowledge and experience. On the weekends we would venture from the ranch to EmTe Town, an old western ghost town, to help lead guests on trail rides. (Source)
