Full History>> While her family wasn't overly wealthy, they were not by any means poor either. Her childhood was spent being taken to see the ballet where her grandfather worked playing percussion in the pit, going to museums, going to musical productions, and of course riding. She was never able to have a horse at home however because her brother was afraid of them. She rode at a stable in town, where she boarded her one and only horse, Bahir. She has known him since he was born, and helped to train him until she was finally able to buy him for herself when he was 6 years old. Her riding education consisted of riding many push button horses and ponies, which is how she has maintained her reputation for never falling off. Bahir was her only horse that wasn't push button due to his overly eager nature, however Gretchen held on for the ride well enough that she never took a tumble. While mainly riding english now, she learned the basics of ridng in western. After woking well with Bahir for so long, Gretchen's parents finally allowed her to go to school to pursue her dream of becoming a proffesional rider, much to her younger brother's chargin.
We found love in a hopeless place
Pet Name>> Ramin
Registered Name>> N/A
Personality>> Ramin is a generally quiet little light yellow and white bird, who has trouble singing. Every once in a great while when he is in high spirits and no one is near his cage, he manages to sing. However most of the time when someone approaches the cage to talk with him, he will answer with little eeps and peeps while hopping up and down from his perches. Ramin cannot be taken out of the cage or held, however when he is resting in his food dish he will allow people to reach into the cage and stroke his back with 1 finger.
History>> Ramin was given to Gretchen as a Christmas present from her parents 3 years ago. She wanted something living in her bedroom, and also wanted a pet at home since she was unable to have her horse there. Ramin is named after Gretchen's favorite musical actor, Ramin Karimloo.
