I know first-hand what it is like to struggle being a Horse Dreamer. My dream to own a horse started at a very young age.
While I was on a family trip to see my grandparents in Germany, they took me on a pony ride. Everyone says that since that day at age 5 years old I've had a passion for horses. But the journey to owning a horse was much
harder than I ever thought. As a preteen and teenager, I started learning more about horses and decorating my bedroom full of horse posters. I knew my parents couldn't afford lessons let alone a horse. I learned early on that the only way was to save the money myself. Several years went by and I learned that it was going to take more than just a part-time job while I was in high school. I knew that my dream would only become my reality on my own - as an adult. When I realized no one really cared to help, teach, or let me work with horses, I created my YouTube channel. It started as just an outlet for my feelings but it quickly grew into something more. I started to find that there were other Horse Dreamers just like me in the world. I worked 8-12 hour shifts once I graduated, saving as much as I could.
By the year 2015 I knew it was now or never as I approached my savings goal. In June 2015 I finally found a mentor who helped me find my first
horse, Azlinn, a Grulla quarter horse born in 2007. As I learned my horse's behavior, likes, and dislikes, I felt I could help other dreamers be more prepared for what may come when owning a horse. Originally I started writing a fictional series using a lot of the experiences I had on my Journey. My true passion is to help others, however, so when I came up
with The Horse Dream Journal I
halted writing the fictional book series to create this Journal. There wasn't much out there to help horse dreamers, and I feel like this journal and The Horse Dream will help Dreamers more than the fictional series ever will.
