    Familiar with Jill (Gill?) Henselwood?



    My daughter starts working with her in 2 weeks. I know that I brag about my children too much, but I single-handedly raised them, so their accomplishments always give me a sense of pride.

    She will be traveling with the team to care for/groom/assist in training the horses. The money isn't awesome, but what it adds to her resume, which is already stellar (hence why she got the job) - is unbelievable. Room and board and travel expenses covered. The team does a lot of traveling that she will be joining them on for shows - she leaves for California on the 27th, then out west a few months later. Brooke has her mom's sense of "wander-lust", so she is VERY excited about that aspect as well.

    I'm going to miss her greatly - but I am VERY proud of her and the direction her life is heading. :cheer:

    I do have to take her cat for her - but mine is gone anyways so I can deal with that.

    Good idea breaking your daughter's hymen with a horse before Chriza gets to her.

    I don't ride. My parents couldn't afford the riding lessons she's been in since she was 5.

    I grew up on a horse farm. Rode since I was a toddler. Went to pony camp etc.

    I grew up to be a fuck up. So save your money.

    She's a show rider, not a western rider Matthew. She does dressage and jumping - not rodeo wrangling!

    :lo5: If you find out Vybette has horses in her soul like Brooke does - tough it out, as rough as it gets. She has shattered her arm, broken both collarbones, had 3 concussions, had her pelvis and hip broken in 3 spots - I tried to make her stop numerous times. But it was like telling her that I was going to reach down her throat and rip out her soul.
