Hi. I am Ann Sampson. Started out with love of horses at around the age of 5 or so and jumped on a horse at Grandma and Grandpa’s down in southern Missouri when we would visit in the summer. Long story in between but continued to be involved with riding and horses on and off through the years. Finally bought our acreage almost 16 years ago and within the first year, had a barn and corral build and horses came shortly afterward.
With experiencing many bumps, bruises and confidence issues, persisted in lessons and clinics, but just this last 1-1/2 years finally got ‘back’ to the riding after a long lay off from fear issues. Anyway, everything is good and have two awesome gaited horses. PJ, my 18 year old Kentucky Mountain gelding that I’ve had for going on 11 years and Bert, my 11 year old Peruvian Paso gelding who is super sweet and fun. They are going to get some nice, long needed exercise this upcoming 2013. I am not going to set a goal of miles, per se, but start with 1 mile and add to it. It will be more incentive rather than competition for me to ride.
