Theresa Rice Writer Horse Blogger


You found me! I’m excited because the internet is a big┬áplace and when we find something we like (just assuming here), it’s worth celebrating!┬áLet me introduce myself. My name is Theresa Rice and I’m a writer, photographer, blogger, horseback rider, dog lover and enthusiastic procrastinator.

So what am I doing here?

Ten years ago I set off on an adventure that changed the course of my life forever: Working on a guest ranch in the Sonoran desert underneath the baking Arizona sun. I met my future-husband there, reconnected with my love for horses and grew up in a short 7 months. I was also inspired to write a story based on my experiences.

Then life happened. (Finishing college, trying to get a job to pay off debt from said college, trying to earn more money to move beyond the tax bracket that had me eating ramen on the regular).

Finally a good friend gave me a strong poke in the backside and I sat down to write that story. And because writing a novel isn’t daunting enough, I decided to create a blog to share my inner thoughts, humor, complaints, what-have-you. I find inspiration from the barn, the end of a dog leash and sometimes even in other people.

If you like what I write and how I write, then I hope you’ll buy my book when it finally comes out. (Please buy my book??) The story is about a cowgirl working as wrangler at a dude ranch where the other wranglers are all men, the manager is a jerk and our dear cowgirl’s job is in jeopardy. It has horses, picturesque desert scenes and girl power, what more could you want?

I have a regular column with Northwest Horse Source, have been published in Equus magazine and also do freelance content writing. I am happy to license my photos, so whatever your writing or photography needs, please contact me.

I hope you’ll stick around, and if you have something you think I should know, or someone you think I should write about, hit me up.
