Turn away 'cause I need you more
Personality>> Andie is;; A bubbly, happy-go-lucky person. Her school reports would say things like: She gets along with others and will go out of her way to help people that need it. And not a lot has changed since then.
Rather than being the type of person to sit on the sidelines, if there is anything happening, work or play, Andie will be right there in the thick of it. Even though her nails always appear perfectly manicured, she isn't afraid of getting her hands dirty.
The colour pink,
playing my acoustic guitar,
quiet nights in front of the fire (I had to add that one).
Not being able to complete a task I have set for myself,
Heights (yeah, I know. I do gymnastics and ride horses, and I’m scared of heights!),
people that treat girls like they are made of glass,
people that take advantage of smaller and/or weaker people and animals.
The smell of freshly cut grass
The sight of blood (ANY blood, not just mine)
To inspire at least one person
To breed her mare
Secrets>>Had a small fling with her boss and got pregnant but miscarried after a fall from a horse.
It’s the way I’m feeling I just can’t deny
Appearance>> Andie could be classed as being short, but she really doesn’t care what anyone else thinks of her. She is slim, but well toned from all the years she has spent, doing martial arts and dance as well as being an assistant-coach for children’s gymnastics and dabbling in modelling. Her dark brown hair is often worn in a high ponytail or two low pony tails.
Markings>> One ear-ring in each ear.
But I’ve gotta let it go
Medical History>> Has broken nearly every bone in her body.
Criminal History>> Nada
Full History>> Andie's birth father died in a car collision a month before she was born. The driver of the other car was horribly drunk and was driving full speed on the wrong side of the road. It didn’t take her mother too long to get over it as she was married again before her only child was even born – the stepfather wasn’t too impressed when his new wife went into labour during their honeymoon, so it didn’t start off very well for Andie – that and the fact that she was the leftovers of her mother’s previous marriage.
Derik saw sport groups as an excellent way to get the girl out of the house, so he talked his wife into signing her up for as many as she could so she would become a “well-rounded individual” Derik just didn’t expect her to be so good at everything she did as she got older. It helped him that her mother was a competitive rider.
For her 8th birthday her mother signed Andie up for Pony club and as luck would have it, one of the members was selling her old pony so Andie got him too. She loved going to PC each month and picked things up very quickly, but asked if she could just grade with the rest of the class, as she had made really good friends with tow other members; Sarah and India.
A year later Andie was standing ringside, watching as her mother tackled a very complicated jumping course, on her beautifully trained mare, when the mare’s feet slipped on take-off and was unable to get over the jump. The mare landed on the jump with a horrible crack before she fell sideways onto my mother! The area was silent, all that could be heard was the groaning from the fallen animal. After what seemed like a lifetime, the paramedics ran into the ring with the vet. The mare was helped to her feet, but the injuries were too horrific that they had to do what was best and put the animal out of her misery.
Her mom? When the mare rolled, she was impaled by one of the broken poles. Andie was assured that she had died instantly, but she had her doubts. She never been near a horse for another eight years.
Andie took up a position as an assistant for my gymnastics coach, to get her away from the sudden affections of Derik. It suddenly seemed that he couldn’t get close enough to her, like he had decided she would just take her mother’s place. He made it very clear that everything that happened between us was her fault and she was never to tell anyone, so she didn’t. He governed everything Andie ate – he wouldn’t let her eat anything that would blemish her complexion - and how much exercise she did – and still it was too never enough. It became his life goal to turn her into the perfect image he had in his head.
Once he found a new wife, Derik couldn’t get rid of his step-daughter fast enough. After looking around at different boarding schools, he found one in Kentucky that was willing to take her on. As he never told Andie anything about the school or let me have any say in what was said to them, she's headed to a school she knew nothing about.
After graduating from BRRA, Andie got a job as a working pupil at a jumper barn. She worked here for a year before she decided to expand her knowledge on breeding and finally returned to the school she had graduated to coach the cheer leaders and work as a barn hand.
We found love in a hopeless place
