Hey! Thanks for visiting my little site, I am so glad you stopped by.
I’m Katie and I’m an 30 year old amateur eventer living, working and riding in Taranaki, New Zealand.
I’ve become something I never thought I’d be – an adult returning to riding. I was always sure horses would be a constant part of my life after I discovered the addiction of riding in my early teens but my early 20s threw me a couple of curveballs and I took a break for a few years. I finally bit the bullet and decided to jump back in the deep end and buy trucks and trucks of horse gear and a brand new pony – read more about her below.
Birdie (formerly Bea) is a 15.2hh 8 year old grey thoroughbred mare born and bred in Hawera, Taranaki. When she came into my life, she had been off the track for a year and spent her time chilling in a paddock before she came in for a month of schooling.
Birdie enjoys popping jumps, standing at the fence with her best friend Buddy and doing the dinner dance while gobbling her food.
