The Good Rider’s Journal was officially launched with the posting of its first article on August 16, 2012,  “When the Show is Over: Retirement With Dignity.” In this article, Ingrid explores some of the difficulties people must face when retiring their horses, as well as potential solutions for securing a better future for our equine senior citizens.

About Ingrid Kingaard

Ingrid is a commercial and creative writer in San Luis Obispo. She has recently left behind a successful career in the corporate legal field to establish her career as a writer “who can make a difference for animals.” Her writing is dedicated, in part, to a wide range of issues related to the well-being of horses, as well as current trends in dressage throughout San Luis Obispo County. To round out her new career as a writer, Ingrid is working on a novella and several animal related articles for e-publication. She is a founding board member of California Coastal Horse Rescue (CCHR) in Ojai, California, where she continues to be actively engaged in horse rescue and advocacy efforts. Ingrid’s equine companions include a WB/TB cross mare, “Chantilly’s Dance,” and a retired Trakehner gelding, “Irisado.” She trains in Arroyo Grande with Ellen Corob.
