Above: Idie is a mare I got when I was 9 yo (and she was 9 yo!) and together we went from her being terrified of human touch and severe anxiety to competing successfully across the west in disciplines including trail, dressage, showmanship, western games, drill team, huntseat, and much more. She was also my Rodeo Queen mount for the Clark County Fair Assoc and we rode in the Portland Rose Parade in addition to dozens of other parades and grand entries for rodeos all across the west. I still have her and she is 27 years old.
