Fan Spotlight: Lisa-Marie and Claire
Meet Lisa-Marie and her TB, “Claire”
My name is Lisa and this is Claire (Clearly A Southern Lady). She is a 16.3h un-raced TB who is about 8 years old. I have been riding for about 17 years and have always been the girl in the 18″ saddle! I primarily rode in hunter shows as a child an just recently started exploring other disciplines. That led to the purchase of Claire, I had been riding in the 15.2h range most my life and after starting sidesaddle lessons and then seeing photos of us I said “we have to upgrade!” I searched for a year for “the horse” and then met Claire, a rescue and now project horse who needed a home and who was way too big for the people who rescued her. Since then she’s come home, gotten fit and we are now ready to make our debut in Side Saddle and Eventing. We also compete in American Competitive Trail Horse Association Rides in Virginia. She is my best friend who is moody, prissy and a treat hound that loves a good head scratch. We’re excited to be part of the 18 hands community!
Glad to have you in the Big Girl Cowgirl Club, Lisa!!!
