My name is Megan. I've been riding for 8 years now and I just bought my second horse. I started riding was I was 9 at an Arabian horse farm. I had a change of discipline when I was 14 and started riding at a barn called Fox Field Farm. I love it there. I bought my first horse, his name is Made You Look (aka Murray) about two years ago(15.09.10). He is a registered Canadian Sport horse. I owned him for two years and sold him in July of 2012. I loved him, but we just weren't the right match and I knew it would be better for the both of us. I just bought another horse (29.11.12) and his name is Coel. I love him so much and I can't wait for our partnership to grow. :) Message me anytime you wanna chat. :)
