I'm an energetic and athletic romanticist and businessman who has always loved horses and rides them whenever the budget allows. For two years, I cared for George, a Morgan who was in his barn in the backyard. I remember going out at 5 a.m. when it was 15 degrees and putting on a heavier blanket, breaking ice off the water, mucking the frozen you-know-what's, and singing the Mr. Ed theme song. (I was so proud when I memorized that song). Favorite was "night out with the guys", when I actually bought George an e-book, "Lady", and read to him aloud. He would sit and stare at me, with more rapt attention than anyone I have ever read to.
Which is a good transition to us. I do love quality time together. If I spent the rest of my life spending time with you, the horse, going to horse-shows I would be a very happy man indeed. I also enjoy art, and founded and manage the Massachusetts Plein Air Artists group (which you can Google). I spend half my week in Central Mass and the other half visiting Mom in Winchester.
Businesswise, no one will ever fault me for lack of ambition. Distraught with the corporate world, I started 3 businesses. The principal one, Performance Business Design, draws on my strength as a Wall Street research analyst and entrepreneur of many years. The other two are on line auction sites for art and antiquities.
Riding, my styles include, in this order: dressage, jumping, and saddleseat. (sorry, no western). I am beginner/intermediate, able to canter in 2-point, jump low fences. This year I am investing in my businesses, not riding, and so this year will be relegated to - if there is such a word - Horse-Husbandry.
Thank you for reading, and good luck with your riding, as well as searching for that special man who, like myself, loves horses.
