Hi There! Today I’m relaunching this blog with the intentions of cataloging my training journey, and chronicling the stories of the horsewomen and men who create our riding community.
In 2012 I started this blog after a friend suggested that it would be a good way to track the progress I was making while training my off the track thoroughbred. So I started Chetak Horses, the old title was ‘Warrior Horses in The Making’ and the first thing I wrote is something I still believe today and hold in my heart.
“Horses are the warriors of my heart. They keep me true and honest with myself. Forcing me to confront my strengths and weaknesses, and pushing me to find the next level of success that I’m looking for. That’s why I’m starting this blog. To keep track of each one of my warriors. The progress they make, their victories, setbacks and breakthroughs. More than anything this blog is going to be a daily reminder of where I have been and where I want to go. Setting me and my warrior in the right direction no matter what the future may hold.”
This along with all of my older posts can found in the archive section of this site. While I’m excited to continue sharing my training journey on this blog, I’m really looking forward to sharing the stories of my fellow riders. Hearing and reading other rider’s stories, how they have achieved their goals, and where their journey has led them, has always been a huge motivating factor that has pushed me forward in my riding career. And I think it’s important to know and realize that success, especially for riders, comes in many shapes and forms, and that there is no one size fits all.
So that’s why I’m relaunching this blog. Because I believe every rider has a story, and that each and every one of those stories deserves to be heard.
