Liz Staley's Profile

About

I grew up in Baltimore, and have lived in Arlington, VA, Greenville, NC, and now Greencastle, PA. My mom got me into arts and crafts when I was really little (I wanted to help her paint ceramics when I was a baby, so she'd give me a paintbrush, a cup of water, and a rubber ducky. Took me awhile to figure out that it's supposed to change colors when you paint it though!). Ever since then I've had an interest in art and making crafts. I love to sew, write novels and comics, draw, and publish books.

In 2013 I finally started to realize my dream of working with horses. I've loved horses since I was very small, but growing up in Baltimore City to a pretty poor family, there was no money to spend on riding lessons, and no place nearby with horses around. One day in about March of 2013 I was in a local restaurant and noticed a flyer for a local riding center. I went down to check the place out and…

In 2013 I finally started to realize my dream of working with horses. I've loved horses since I was very small, but growing up in Baltimore City to a pretty poor family, there was no money to spend on riding lessons, and no place nearby with horses around. One day in about March of 2013 I was in a local restaurant and noticed a flyer for a local riding center. I went down to check the place out and asked if I could volunteer during the classes. They agreed to take me on as a volunteer for the day camp in the summer.

After I put the news that I was going to be volunteering with horses up on Facebook, a friend contacted me and asked if I would like to help take care of her horse as well. I am now the proud half-owner of a beautiful 16 year old Morgan horse named Glory, who is one of the best things in my life. I am still volunteering at the riding center too, in exchange I am getting horseback riding lessons for helping out!

Because this year just came together as a gift allowing me to finally do something I've been wanting for the better part of my life, I have decided that I want to give something back to the horse community. Anything horse or pony related in my shop will have 50% of the proceeds donated to the Equus Foundation, as my way of passing on my thanks that I have this amazing opportunity to live my dream!
