I have been involved with the Walking Horse since 2000 and have never regretted a day! In probably less than six months from owning my first TWH I found myself showing in a Gaited Horse Show in Santa Rosa. I was hooked. I now have three Walking Horses, all spotted, and enjoy more than just horse shows with them. We trail ride and horse camp all over the Mother Lode area, ride in the local parade for years now, and represented the TWH/SSH at the Horse Expo. I have ridden my TWH Sundance in the Ride4MS, doing the 20 mile ride at Folsom Lake Trails to raise funds for MS; this mare is in her 20's! Not only do I promote the sound, versatile TWH/SSH, I am also a trails advocate, member and past President of Meadow Vista Trails Association, helping to clear & maintain trails, work with County Parks supporting equestrian trails and lobby at the county level for new equestrian trails. Every chance I get, I introduce a new person to the joys of owning a TWH and SSH! As an NCWHA Board Member, I enjoy putting together the California Walk'N Newsletter and posting pictures to the NCWHA Facebook page!
