Hey everyone! I’m Kristin Alexander, your newest COTH blogger. I’ll be chronicling my adventures (and language challenges!) riding and showing in Germany. So how does a regular, office-working, adult amateur end up in the Mecca of dressage? My husband is in the military and we moved here two years ago.The first year I lived the “normal” life; one where I worked, took vacations, and I was generally clean (no helmet hair) and didn’t have mud on any of my shoes. It was a great time, but as much as I loved seeing the sights, I really wanted to be viewing it all from the back of a horse.
