Tamara Collins, involved with the Arabian horse industry for over 16 years. It all started at the age of 10 when she was given her first Arabian horse.
“I remember that day as if it were yesterday. My mom had signed me up for a riding lesson and before the lesson was over the trainer had approached my mother and insisted I had a natural ability. A week later I showed up to my second riding lesson and unknowingly my mother guided me to my lesson horse’s stall. As I got closer to the stall door, I realized there was a surprise in store for me. A small sign read ‘Welcome home Misty. We love you Tammy!’ At that same moment a beautiful grey Arabian mare peeked her head over the stall door. I cannot describe the love I felt in that moment, I can only keep it alive by sharing that love with my students and their horses.”
