Welcome to my dark corner of the web (I do enjoy a good cliché)!
I’m Orla, a 24 year old Marketing Professional from Co. Kildare, Ireland. I’ve been riding since I was 8 years old and having leased a number of horses over those years, I finally came to the conclusion in late 2016 that it was time to buy my own horse. With not a lot of money, I decided I would get a young horse that needed a bit of bringing on and after seeing and trying a few different options I finally met Coco, a stunning Appaloosa mare. I’m still not sure what made me buy her but there was just something about this horse. I’ll be doing a post about Buying Coco soon so you can read the full story there.
In the stable Coco is a sweet, playful and charming mare. In the saddle..not so much. A bit of hot-head, Coco has a lot of fire in her so she keeps me very much on my toes. She’s also incredibly clever and a very fast learner so she’s eager to get the job done. We have a long way to go but I’m excited to see where we end up.
