Hello! I'm Meghan Christianson, I was born and raised in Oregon but have recently moved to Colorado to attend college. I have ridden and shown hunter jumpers for the majority of my riding career. Along with hunter jumpers I have also participated in polo, polocrosse, western (all around), dressage, jumpers and even mounted shooting! I currently own Wilson, a ten year old paint gelding that I use for every discipline that I ride. Along with riding my own horse I help people with their "problem" horses of all disciplines.
I don't have an extensive show record, but take pride in everyday progress that my horse Wilson and I make. I spend a majority of my time out at the barn with Wilson and my friends, but I also snowboard, hike and wake surf. I have a passion for traveling and seeing what I can not see in the United States. I recently returned from an international equine internship that involved working with andalusian horses in Conil de la Frontera, Spain.
I created Ride: The Pony Blog with the goal of connecting riders of all disciplines.

Hello! My name is Andie Pratt. I am 17 years old and I am from a small town in Northeast Arkansas. I have been riding reining and ranch riding for the past 5 years, but before that I rode western pleasure and eve tried my hand at a little bit or barrels (it wasn’t for me, but it was really fun!). I currently have four show horses and am riding two three year olds that will hopefully be mine for the futurity next year. (Gold and Smart- raymond, fs pale face gunner- henry, lil kid whiz- tater tot, and charismatic chrome- zeke are my show horses). Two of my horses are currently in the process of rehabilitation due to Tater tot having an old injury when he was very young and Henry having mineral deposits found after I got him. I look forward to sharing my experiences with people through this blog!

Hello! My name is Piper Morrison. I am 17 years old and I live in
Southwest Virginia in a small little town called Bristol. I ride mostly
reiners, but before I knew about reining my dream was to become a
professional barrel racer. I own a bay mare, I'll Take A Rein Check, or
Stormy - of which has just acquired a stifle and arthritis issue,
resulting in a lack of riding. When I'm not riding her, I am riding my
neighbors horse, Tank. He is a three year old gelding by Ima
Bartender Two and out of a gunner mare. He shows great promise
and I will be writing a few blogs about how I train and or ride
most of my horses! My life outside of horses has never been too
eventful, but can be when I try to avoid it. Before horses, I played
lots of sports! Growing up it was mostly soccer or cross country,
but I thought I would branch out this upcoming year since I no
longer have a show horse aside from Tank. I decided to try track
and volleyball this upcoming year, I'll let you know how that goes.
As for my lifelong goals, I would love to become an NRHA million
dollar rider as well as have a great reputation. I am hoping that
dream becomes a little closer as I have decided I will be breeding
my mare this upcoming May. I will be announcing the stallion on
my instagram which I will link for you to see. I look forward to
sharing my experiences, tips, and tricks with you all and if you have any suggestions, my social medias' are linked above!
I’m Abby Budd. I’m thirteen years old and in eighth grade. I live in southern Colorado and when I’m not showing or being with my horses, I’m playing volleyball or am busy with school! I can’t ever remember being without horses in my life. One of my first memories is cantering for the first time ever on my faithful horse cinnamon (aka cinnamon frosty). I show in reining and ranch riding and also do IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association). My horse, Cromed Up aka Dreamer is a five year old bay mare. I got her when she was three, and have had her for almost two years! She was my first reiner and she’s such a good horse for me. Dreamer and I have competed nationally and locally in NRHA and AQHA. I love to write and being creative. With this website, I can take two things I love doing and combine them! I’m looking forward to being a part of this blog!
Hi, my name is Peyton! I am ecstatic to be apart of Ride: The Pony Blog. I am from Illinois. I have done everything from dressage to barrels. At the moment I own five horses. My main show horse, Dunit For Sugar- known on Instagram as "Hot Rod", is a 2006 AQHA gelding by Reminic N Dunit out of Ready Sugar Surprise. Together, we show nationwide AQHA and NRHA shows. I love to work hard for what I get and I have a very driven personality. I am an entrepreneur. From starting my own businesses at age 6, I have always had a 'sales-person' attitude. I was raised to set dreams and achieve them. My first reining horse was very hard to get through the pen. At the beginning, we were consistently last. I worked hard and set small goals to achieve my big goal - a clean, winning pattern. Sure enough, we did it. Through the years I have learned that everything happens for a purpose. At the beginning of 2017, I was blessed with Hot Rod and it has all gone up from there. I can't wait to share my experiences and lessons I have learned with the readers on here!
I’m Randus Price, and I’m so excited to be apart of Ride: The Pony Blog! I’m a 20-year-old horse and rodeo enthusiast from Southern Alberta, Canada. I come from a rodeo family, so I have been around horses my entire life. I got my start in barrel racing when I was just 5 years old going to races with my mom. Later I began high school rodeo and began pole bending, breakaway roping, team roping and goat tying as well. My current main mount is Frosty a 18 year old, 15.2 hh, grade, bay gelding. He has been apart of my life for 5 years and I can compete competitively in every event on him. I attended Lethbridge College for 2 years and received my Marketing Diploma in which I also competed in college rodeos. I enjoy building my own horses and playing with young horses, my current project is a 5 year old, quarter horse mare named Fancy.
Ashton Rein Williams
Hi! I am Ashton Rein Williams. I am 21 years old and a junior at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. I grew up on 50 acres in Cabot, Arkansas and always had my horses in our backyard. I have been showing since I was 8 years old. Horses have always been a family affair for me, and I was born into the lifestyle. I am an only child, and I would consider my horses and other animals to be siblings. My parents chose my middle name in honor of the event they both love, reining. We have 6 reining trained Quarter Horses, but they are all shown in multiple disciplines: reining, horsemanship, ranch riding, and cow work. My parents and I pretty much share horses. I have competitively shown our 4 main horses for many years, and I credit them for making me the horsewoman I am today.
My freshman year of college, a ranch horse team was started at the University of Arkansas. I am an inaugural member of that team and it has completely changed my life. I am looking forward to this new adventure of blogging!

Hi, I’m Hannah Zanin and I am a sophomore at a small high school in Colorado. I have been riding horses for as long as I can remember. I began taking lessons on my hunter jumper pony and then made the change to cowhorse and reining horses. I started competitively showing reining horses about 5 years ago. I have competed at regional, and national levels with my 11 year old gelding Chickee. I am so excited to be a part of this blog and can’t wait tell you more about me!

My name is Mackenzie Taylor, I am 16, I come from a long line of family who have trained and showed horses, so I have been riding horses since before I could walk. I started out on Tennessee Walking Horses, and made my first show deput riding my very first horse, a gelding named ‘dusty’.
At the age of 11, I began taking lessons for Jumping and Dressage at a little eventing barn down the road from my house. After about four years, I never really stuck to it and always found myself drifting back to my main breed (twh). I even got the chance to work with a few barrel racing ponies at one point in time, and actually had a great time with it, and did a little bit of pole work also.
But, now I’m still showing and training Tennessee Walking Horses to this day, and love it more than ever. I strive to put out a better name for the breed and all of the industry as a whole. I am so excited to be a part of Ride: The Pony Blog!
My name is Kaylee Sutton, I’m 15 years old, am from California and have owned my Paso Fino Quarter Horse mix for three years. I have one horse named Major and he’s 15 as well. my dream my whole life has been to barrel race and rodeo. I’ve been to a couple rodeos and got money every time but i’m trying to expand it. I’m currently an FFA chapter officer at my school and am extremely involved. My horse and I love to trail ride, ride in lakes, dead run as fast as we can in a pasture, and just goof around together. In my free time I love to read books and go on hikes (when i’m not riding of course). I would love to share my journey with you guys and all of my silly times with my horse. I like to add a quote at each end of my post just to boost everyone’s day! I’m so excited to be apart of this blog!
