Lita on Ziggy
His first trail ride!
Santa Rosa Trails, August 2011

I have worked with horses since I was a child. I supported myself and a horse through college by giving riding lessons. For most of my adult life I have bred, raised, trained and raced TB Racehorses. I have had stakes winners and hope to have some more again soon, as my young ones grow up and hit the track.

I have also ridden English/Western/Jumping/show over the years, but none of it compares to the joy on the trails today!

I have 2 gaited geldings Marley and Ziggy that are a blast to ride. I joined the Temecula Eq-Wine Riders a few years ago and have been trail riding with them monthly. It is great to learn of new trail areas and meet new riders. I am sure I will be in the saddle up until my last day alive!

Happy trail to everyone...If you're feeling down - Saddle up!
