Welcome to Horsewrite. We are brought together by horses, and united through our desire to thrive within the equestrian community. Our mission is to support the discovery of each equestrians potential through providing actionable resources.
💫 I thought up Horsewrite while riding in a dressage lesson. I wanted to remember all those moments, tips, and takeaways that are unique to each ride.
Now, I am in love with sharing my journal and helping all riders thrive. I hope you love it as much as I do!
Anna Morton, Founder
Hi, I’m Anna Morton, and I’m the founder of Horsewrite. I’m originally from Northeast Ohio, and am back and forth from Ohio and Germany. My love for horses began at a young age, thanks in large part to my grandmother’s encouragement. I grew up riding bareback on our farm, and taking dressage and jumping lessons. However, after a break from riding to pursue my professinal business career, I found myself feeling unfulfilled and uncertain about how to progress with my riding.
Inspired by the words of Alois Podhajsky (and many others), who wrote “To master a living creature, one must first and foremost master oneself,” I sought out a new challenge for myself and began taking dressage lessons more seriously. Through this experience, I discovered just how much I had yet to learn, and developed a passion for recording and reflecting on my progress through note-taking.
That passion led me to create Horsewrite, the journal. Plus a community and brand that offers resources, tips, and support to equestrians of all levels and disciplines. I share quotes and advice from trainers around the world, connect with riders who are returning to the sport, and celebrate the journey of all horse enthusiasts. My ultimate goal with Horsewrite is to provide global resources for those entering or re-entering the horse community, and to help riders hungry for knowledge continue to improve and enjoy their partnership with these amazing animals.
