Team 7: Christiansen
As a long-time follower of Horsetrailriders website I couldn't let this opportunity pass me by, even though I am re-situated outside of Nebraska now and am not getting the trail miles I would like so far. I brought our two horses, Cooper (in the picture) and Jake (the sub), out to California when we moved here about a year ago and we are slowly getting familiar with the trails. My biggest fear is that I will mistakenly take a switchback trail and, unable to turn around on a narrow drop-off trail, end up having to go over Cougar Rock!!
Although I dabble in various horse activities, I primarily am a trailrider. Horses are a grounding force in my life; feeding, grooming, and doing barn chores are great remedies for stress. I have a plaque that says, "My therapist was born in a barn." So true.
