Sydney Green, the founder of Trotting On, is a nineteen-year-old multi-discipline rider from Central Indiana who now lives in the bluegrass of Lexington, Kentucky. With a lifelong passion for horses and an insider look to multiple disciplines, including dressage, hunter-jumper, and eventing, she provides unique connections in her writing that other blogs don’t have. Through her major at the University of Kentucky, she hopes to make a career in agriculture working in agricultural education. Her upbringing around agriculture and love of teaching made it a great fit while allowing for her to be able to share her love for horses with others.
Currently, Sydney has three horses in her string and is always looking to add more. Her personal horse, Carina, is a Selle Français mare who is currently enjoying the semi-retired lifestyle as Sydney’s gal pal. Goose, her large Quarter Horse pony, is with her to get a second chance on a happy life after being rescued out of a neglect situation. And finally Phim, her Swedish Warmblood gelding who is an eventer-turned-jumper that she is hoping to show in the high adults this coming season.
Trotting On was originally launched in 2016 as The Preppy Equestrian. It was a more in-depth outlet to talk and interact with her followers. Focused mostly on product reviews and how-to’s, The Preppy Equestrian had great success over the years, but now she is making a shift to a more experience-based content with Trotting On. Speaking with professionals throughout the equestrian community and through her own experiences to create content that is relatable and relevant to everybody. This blog is for those who share a love for horses and the lifestyle that comes with it, no matter the discipline or background.
