My name is Grace Gorham, and I’m an 18 year old eventer. I currently compete my OTTB, Murphy at the beginner novice level. I am also an active member of Pony Club with my C-2 rating. I have been riding since I was 6 years old, mostly doing hunters until I found eventing. I love the challenge of having to perfect all three phases.
In school, I enjoy English and I also take journalism classes. Since finding out about sites like Eventing Nation and the Chronicle of the Horse magazine, I am interested in pursuing a career in equine media, which is mainly why I started this blog. I hope to share my insights about eventing, but mostly just horses in general, and also be able to see how others can relate to my experiences in the horse world.
When I’m not riding horses, I like to watch TV (some favorites are Parks and Rec and Brooklyn 99) or listen to any type of music as long as it has a good beat that I can dance (badly) to. My friends tell me that I’m very “food driven,” and I can get hangry very easily (Chick-Fil-A and Chipotle are always good options). I’m known for being giggly and making people laugh. When I was younger, I would canter instead of walking places, but I’ve grown out of that now… mostly.
