What is it about girls and horses? That’s what Templeton Thompson wants to know. The country music cowgirl from Texas began horseback riding at a young age and claims she was “country when country wasn’t cool.”
With her latest single, When I Get That Pony Rode, rising in GAC’s Daily Countdown, Templeton is all about horses. In fact, Templeton does all her own horseback riding in the music video When I Get That Pony Rode.
Horse crazy cowgirl Templeton Thompson
“You could say I’ve been ‘horse crazy’ and ‘riding horses’ since before I can even remember, said Thompson. “My Mom rode horses up until she was eight months pregnant with me. A few weeks after I was born, she made a little papoose like sling and we rode all over the ranch in Texas. I’ve been in LOVE with HORSES my whole life.”
Breyer model horses
What horse crazy little girl doesn’t collect Breyer model horses? I can live without my blue ribbons and sterling silver platters from all those horse shows, but I really wish I’d kept my Breyer horses. Fun Fact: Templeton’s horse, “Jane” also achieved celebrity status when Breyer- maker of collectable model horses- created a model of “Jane” which was packaged with Templeton’s music and sold nationwide.
