Meet The Mods - Barbwire Stables
 By Barbwire Stables   •   19th May 2010   •   3,121 views   •   8 comments
I'm Barbwire, a 31 year old mother of two. Nevaeh 19 months and Cody 7 years old. I am raising both of them on my own. Ive gone back to school and Im carrying a full load of four classes a semester. I wanted to go for occupational Therapy but having issues finding the school around here that does it so transfered to radiology tech and should graduate in another year if i can pass all of my classes. I'd love to get my degree in occupational therapy and then get certified as a theraputic riding instructor. That is my ultimate goal.

Meet The Mods - Barbwire StablesIve been a mod on the paint server since it opened and am also a moderator on PB3 as well. Ive been asked by many people if Im new to being a moderator and I can deffinatley say no. I had to take a break due to some personal reasons that several people on here know about and during that time so many people left and new members joined. I at one time on the paint server was a very very well known moderator and had some very good paint horses.

I do photo manipulations as well as digital paintings and yes I have a deviantart account at http://dreamer56horses.deviantart.com/. Photography is also another huge passion of mine and if I knew I could make good money where Id prefer to be getting my degree in. Maybe someday. I use a Cannon Rebel XT to take majority of my pictures and have been paid a few times to take them.

I am down to only one fiesty little stud pony he is a welsh/halflinger cross pony. I had eight of them but lost three last year. One to pnemonia, one to severe colic and one to a level four heart murmmor that was the worst year I'd ever had, and the rest I sold off to get me to the one. I have 29 years of horse experience as I started riding when I was only two years old. I have done many different things from breaking out, foaling, breeding, showing, contesting, western pleasure, english pleasure, proffessional show groom, etc. I've also done a lot in my many years with horses. I spent several years as a proffessional groom/show groom, I handled horses that some of you may recognize such as Padrons Psyche, Matoi, Alliance and several more of the top arabians as well as a top morgan stallion named Clearview Commander.

welsh/halflinger cross pony

I was Psyche's personal groom for over a year and was with him when he made his appearance at the scottsdale show way way back in the late 90's. I had to sleep at the stalls close to him and tend to his every need. The year they were going to retire Matoi I was his show groom, I think it was his fourth or fifth national champion Park horse title that i was his groom for. Both in the proffessional class and the amature one. I had a blast that year at nationals.
I've gotten to travel all over the country to go to horse shows. Several of the barns I worked for include LaCabreah Arabians, Park Ridge Arabians and Cedar Ridge Arabians. Each place I worked at was very different and I learned alot at them. Andrew Selleman and Chris Wilson were my favorite two trainers I have worked under and that was during their time at Cedar Ridge Arabians.

I now just do some training on the side as my kids and everything else takes up alot of my time and with this economy not as many are hiring people for horse jobs. For two years I was a barn manager for a summer riding camp called Camp Red Cedar which is a camp for kids with and without disabilities. I had all kinds of fun helping with able bodied and non able bodied lessons.
