Team 14 - Messick **
I’m Brenda Messick. I live north of Lincoln, NE. This is my 3rd year in the derby. I’ll be riding 2 Rushcreek mares, Rushcreek Allie and Rushcreek Bonita, in CTR’s and Endurance, pictured above with Rushcreek Frontier, my 3 year old prospect. I'll be trail riding with 1 or 2 QH geldings. I hope to compete in my first 50 mile Endurance ride this year, and may set a goal for a 75 or 100! My horses are featured on my Messick Performance and Endurance Horses Facebook page. You are welcome to visit the page and see what mares and foals, as well as the horses that I have for sale!
I’m breeding and raising Rushcreek bred Arabians for Trail Riding or Endurance. This year, I’ll have 5 or 6 Arabian foals. If you are looking for a trail or endurance prospect, I may have your next horse! I also have a few young QH’s that I’ll be starting.
I’m a Centered Riding Level 1 Instructor. I teach riding lessons, with a focus on Centered Riding Techniques. I’ve had a few Western Dressage lessons, and hope to add more lessons this year. Last year, I was able to ride in a Buck Brannaman clinic, and this year, I hope to focus on more of that style of riding clinics. My focus with the horses this year will be about more quality time with them.
I write about my riding, training, grandchildren, and life around here on my blog, Horses Are Our Lives. I have a Horses Are Our Lives chat group where I talk about riding and training tips, horse health, books and other current topics. Come join in the discussion!
