The Very Beginning

I am Katie.

I'm 17 and I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I have a gorgeous chesnut thoroughbred call Red (whoever gave him that name had no imagination). Hes 17 too, and is farrr away from retirement. He is the 2nd grumpiest horse I have ever met. The first is my best friends eventer Toby who has a vendetta against me and regularly tries to kill me but thats a story for another time. Red and I do low level eventing at Intro level (when I said low I meant it) through Pony Club. I've had him for about three years now and we have done 1 complete season at PC. I have learnt much in that one season and have made some incredible friends along the way. We've done about 4 One Day Events (ODE's) in that season and basically we had little success. Looking back on it, entering those events was not the smartest thing to do as I had noooo idea what was involved and we were no where ready to compete but they were great learning experiences. And so here starts our story... our journey to become the best we can be.
