My name is Amy Latka and I am passionate about horses. I have ridden horses since I was a youngster. I rode my first off-track Thoroughbred (or OTTB) in college. Little did I know at the time that these horses would become the focus of my life long passion.
I purchased my first OTTB in 2003 thinking that I had plenty of skill to retrain her. After all…how hard could it be? As it turns out, the journey has been a very humbling, yet amazing experience. And thanks to her, I’ve gained the skills to help over a dozen exracers find new homes and careers. My initial reasoning for starting this blog was to chronicle my adventures and thoughts on the process of transitioning horses from the track to new careers. Now, many years after starting that retraining journey, I am married with two kids and my focus has shifted. I’ll definitely be chronicling my adventures with training horses, but also talking about adventures of small farm ownership.
Feel free to comment and I hope you enjoy your time here!
