Discover The Horse
Hello! My name is Alyssa. I am a lifelong equestrian and adventure lover! I grew up in a small town in northwest Wisconsin. No one in my family was into horses, but I was obsessed! I started riding lessons when I was five and from that point it was difficult to keep me off of a horse. 🙂

I became fascinated with different training methods, riding styles, and meeting new breeds. From pony express re-enactments on a Missouri Fox Trotter, to working with endangered Skyrian Ponies at a therapeutic riding center in Greece, my riding life was an amazing journey. Each horse had their own unique story and there was so much to learn.

The idea to ride every breed was a dream for over a decade. I had ridden over 30 different breeds in a wide variety of disciplines and I wanted to show the world what our amazing horses do for us. In September of 2017 I officially launched DiscoverTheHorse!
