Hi, I’m Terisé.

I’m a 20-something equestrian living in New England and trying to survive the adult amateur life with my Oldenburg gelding, Axcent. Formerly the author of Breeches and Boat Shoes, blogging has been in my life since 2013. Now, The Working Amateur acts as a more mature but equally equestrian space to bring my creativity and thoughts to the internet.

Outside the barn, my full-time communications job in the equine industry keeps me busy, as well as my side hustle at Terisé M. Cole Photography. When I’m not at the barn, at work, or behind the camera, you can find me blogging away at my desk or anywhere else, phone and coffee in hand.
