About The Geek Equestrian
The Geek Equestrian was made to help equestrians, nerds, and foodies connect with companies and learn about topics of interest. TGE was officially born in August of 2016 after months of brainstorming and planning.
TGE started as a blog that wrote about 3 topics: Horses, STEM, and food. In 2017 it has added two new programs and one new topic. The Featured Rider Program is a way for equestrians to share their story and learn more about riders in different disciplines from all over the world. The Equine Charity of the Month lets our reader learn more about one amazing equine charity a month and how hey can give back to our beautiful friends and partners, horses. We added geek entertainment to our list of topics we write about. From books to movies, to events, we cover and write about it all!
At The Geek Equestrian, we believe quality is more important than quantity.
Everything featured on TGE has been tried and tested to make sure we are connecting our readers with only the best. We also make sure our blog posts are helpful and easy to use in our reader’s everyday lives.

Hannah is 17 years old and is the owner of The Geek Equestrian! She started riding when she got lessons as a Christmas present when I was eight. At age 11, Hannah entered her first dressage show and was proud to bring home a second and third place. Her love for horses and competing have grown rapidly ever since.
She then moved to a larger competition barn when I was 13. During that year Hannah gained the titles of horse camp counselor, working student, and horse owner! She became an official barn brat!
The next year Hannah moved her horse to an event barn after trying some hunter/jumper shows and watching cross country. Unfortunately, her first horse, Skid, would not become her first eventing partner. In 2015, Skid went to be a dressage king with Kristina, our lovely guest blogger, and Hannah got Gus who is the main man in many of our early pictures. At the end of 2017, Hannah got her next equine partner. Cash is a 11-year-old, 17 hand Hanoverian gelding. Next year, they will compete in Eventing and Dressage together until Hannah heads to the University of Kentucky to study Computer Science.
Her love for competing and amazing family have allowed Hannah to compete in Eventing, Dressage, and Show Jumping. She takes online college classes that allow her to still be at the barn as much as she likes while keeping up with classes.
Hannah has had the opportunity to be featured in the Paulick Report in an Aftercare Spotlight and in Story Monster’s Ink Magazine for her work in her community and equine industry that earned her a Congressional Gold Medal.
Kristina is a Dressage rider who competes her own paint gelding, Spartan. Though the pair loves their time in the dressage ring, they are planning on making the transition into Eventing with their sights set on Rolex! Kristina is proudly partnered with Kerrits Equestrian and loves representing them both at home and around the state at shows. When not in the saddle, she enjoys art, photography, and model horse collecting. Kristina hopes that her passion for horses and competing will get others out to the barn and in the saddle!
