My name is Andrea Thill. I graduated in May of 2016 from CSUSM with a Bachelors of Science in Business with an emphasis in Marketing Management. I was on the Dean's List every semester and was awarded Marketing Student of the year 2015-2016.
I have many interests, which include: fashion, design, crafting, horseback riding, animals, traveling, writing and reading. I am almost consistently listening to music.
In the summer of 2017, I decided to fulfill a lifelong dream of mine, which was learning about horses, and how to ride them. I currently take horseback riding lessons at an amazing equestrian center in Bonsall California, Sundance Hills Equestrian Center. Where I learn horsemanship, gymkhana skills, as well as grooming and tacking up horses:
After riding for about a year, I decided to compete in Gymkhana, about 2 years after that, in 2020 I decided to make a big decision and purchase my very own horse! I have been competing on Ruby after a short break due to Covid 19. I also started working at SHEC as a Lead Wrangler to teach beginning and returning riders about equine safety, and how to tack up their horses.
Falling in love with the sport of Gymkhana, and the non-profit Mudslingers club, I was able to join the board, first as the Social Media and Website manager, and then graduating to Vice President. The CGA Mudslingers board consists of 4 volunteer board members, and we work on raising funds in order to host horseback riding competitions. We also raise money to provide prizes to the winning riders on the day of the competition, and at the end of the season, also known as "Year End Awards". Our goal is to award the first place club members with Coriente saddles as first place prizes. Our volunteer and fund raising efforts, for the last several years, have allowed us to give out saddles to 6 first place winners!
I design clothing, and I also design and make costumes. I love graphic design and I am skilled with the program Adobe Illustrator. I love DIY projects, so if I can make something on my own, I will try my best to do so. I cannot wait to get my own home so that I can decorate it with style, and have as many dogs as my heart desires. I want a nice closet to keep all my clothes in, and an office/craft room where I can get creative! And I want to have a nice quiet place where I can sit down and enjoy a book.
I am multi-talented and am able to quickly learn and easily adapt into many different positions. My many passions and creativity can propel me into success in many different scenarios.
