About Me

You found me! I’m excited because the internet is a big place and when we find something we like, it’s worth celebrating! Let me introduce myself. My name is Theresa Rice and I’m a writer, blogger, horseback rider, dog lover and enthusiastic procrastinator.

I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Ten years ago I set off on an adventure that changed the course of my life forever. The adventure? To work 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 there.

Whoops! Ten years later and that story is still not written. But, I am working on it. I started this blog to connect with people who enjoy entertaining, thoughtful, and sometimes funny stories from the barn, the end of a dog leash or wherever else I find inspiration. Yes, there are a lot of horse stories on here, but it’s not 100% a horse blog, maybe like 70%.

If you like what I write about and how I write, then maybe you’ll be interested in my book when it eventually comes to fruition. The book in progress is a work of fiction about a Sam, a female wrangler working at the Broken Hart guest ranch. She is looking forward to a satisfying winter guest season of leading dudes on trail rides. But with Eli Wright as the exasperating general manager, the likelihood of a peaceful season is slipping away. And Sam feels her job, and even her future with the ranch, are threatened.

You can think of me like your witty, sometimes snarky, very entertaining (it’s my About Me section so I’ll be as generous as I want with how entertaining I think I am) who lives far away and who you’ve never met. Really, it should sound like an ideal friendship, I make you laugh, sometimes (rarely) cry, I never ask to borrow money and I’m always here for you when you need me.

Nice to meet you friend, I hope you’ll stick around!
