Taylor Felger Loves Her Horses

Taylor Felger Loves Her Horses

Taylor Felger is a senior at David Anderson. She is 18 years old and loves to ride horses. Taylor has two male horses that are named T and Cochise who live at her grandma’s, where there is a huge pasture. Taylor started riding when she was only 10 years old but had to stop at the age of 12 because she moved to Columbiana. The horses could not come with Taylor so they just stayed at her grandma’s. Taylor picked up riding again at the age of 15 when she moved to Lisbon, which is much closer to the horses.

T is ten years old and Cochise is six. They are both American Bashkir Curlies. T cost $5000 because of his breed and his age at the time he was purchased. Cochise was $7000 because he was younger and when she bought him he was in his prime and his strongest.

When Taylor is on the farm, the first thing she does is feed and water the horses. She then unlocks the gate and lets them run wild until she is done cleaning up their stalls. After the job is done, Taylor goes out to the field with T and Cochise and rides them until they are tired. Now that it has been a few years since she started riding again, she wants to start competing sometime in the near future.
