Team 8: Griffin
My name is Annette Griffin and I live in Texas with my daughter, our 2 dogs and herd of 8. One thing I can say about myself is that If it's a challenge/competition I'll jump in wholeheartedly! I may not win a thing but I can pretty much guarantee the experience will be interesting and usually fun. I wish I could say I'm an accomplished and knowledgeable horsewoman but I'm not. I'm just your everyday run-of-the-mill trail rider and novice team sorter.
My Paint, Bella, sustained an injury that has her sidelined for at least the first half of 2012 which has forced me to explore partnerships with some of my other horses. My dream horse, Tally, is a Spotted Draft. She is a blast to ride and boy can she cover ground without even trying. My goal is to ride her in at least a "B" (one day) ride at a CTR in the upcoming season. My handsome bay QH, Hank, will see a lot of pleasure trail time and will probably be my main man in the sorting pen but my number one mount is going to be Ginger, a plus-sized Red Roan mare.
Ginger has "tude" and reminds me of Bella in a lot of ways and has a way of making sure her opinion is known so I'm sure 2012 is going to full of "learning experiences" for both of us.
So, come along for the ride, I promise it won't be boring!
