starstrider: DO NOT TAKE (Me -- Itolocus)
[personal profile] starstrider posting in [community profile] equidae
 Hello Equidae! I'm following [personal profile] sabr 's lead with an intro post. =)
([personal profile] sabr or [personal profile] sundog , let me know if I tagged anything wrong!)

I'm a 23-year-old Wisconsinite, and the two-legger counterpart of an 18.1-hand Hanoverian/TB gelding named Itolocus ("Toler"). Toler is 11, and we do mostly dressage these days as well as some jumping. We used to be more into jumping with hopes of doing some mini-events someday, but we had a jumping accident two years ago that has derailed that train of thought. We're making our comeback from that as well as some other injuries, so while we used to be showing at second level and schooling third, we are back schooling first level again. I sometimes think it would be fun to find a giant cart to hook him up to. (I think he'd enjoy combined driving, personally.)  XD  Fun facts: Toler is also a registered Canadian Sporthorse and Canadian Warmblood, as he was bred in Manitoba near Winnipeg.

Toler is my only horse, but the place I board him at breeds and trains Arabian Sporthorses (and Half-Arabian Sporthorses), as well as some OTT rescues. I occasionally do some training myself.

I also do equine sports massage, equine trigger point therapy, equine acupressure, joint yoga therapy, and a little equine chiropractic work. I'm not a professional or certified, but I know enough to work on my own horse quite comfortably, and he does see a professional massage therapist and chiropractor when we can afford it.

I am also an equine photographer, like sabr and sundog. I run a photoblog for my "imprint" TolHorse Studios. I also have a training blog for my journey with Toler, but I admit I haven't posted there recently...If anyone's interested, there are feeds for both here on DW: [syndicated profile] tolhorsestudios_feed  & [syndicated profile] notquitehercules_feed .

It's no problem :) I was waiting for you to give me the okay - I'd already made the banner, and was just waiting to hit 'post' :)
