  1. Hi, I’m interested in joining the association as an “Associate” member as I do not currently own a horse but may get on in a few years. I’ve been riding horses for over 25 years and have extensive experience caring for them. I grew up in Pony Club and am C-3 rated. I worked at barns throughout high school and college caring for horses, managing and teaching at a riding school, and as a working student for various trainers. I’m comfortable riding all types of horses and have a lot of experience with green horses. I’m very competent at handling horses, providing basic veterinary care (treating minor wounds, worming, wrapping, etc). I’ve owned two horses in my life and sadly had to sell my second horse in 2008 when I moved to SF to attend graduate school. Since 2012 I’ve been sponsoring horses at local barns. I’m currently riding at Halt Halt Farms in Briones and got back into eventing last year.

    I’ve recently realized that I’m not interested in competitive riding anymore and really just want to trail ride. I sponsored a horse at Grizzly peak stables from 2012-2014 and loved riding in Tilden! The horse moved to Bay Laurel for a brief period and I remember hearing about OHA then. I moved to Orinda last year and would love to join the association. Are you currently accepting associate members? If so, I’ll submit an application. I’m happy to do all the volunteer work required and more.
