I love warmblood inspections. First off, the foals are so dang cute, and watching their baby antics is such a joy. It makes me wish I had foals running around my farm (thank goodness I come back to reality before that happens. Then, there’s such great information shared by the inspectors. It’s really insightful and […]
One of the best feelings in the world? Acomplishment. Getting things done. Feeling like the time was well spent. That’s how the weekend felt for me. It’s hard for me to get things done outside because I’m frequently watching the baby. My husband works from home, and his job has no set hours, so he […]
I had just fed my horses, turned them out, and was preparing to leave. Pony usually always waits with me for Stu to finish eating. Stu is the biggest horse, has the biggest ration, and makes the biggest mess. He always takes the longest. Pony is the smallest, eats a handful of pity grain, and […]

It’s now been about a year since the last time I rode. I cannot believe it has been that long. I am dying to go riding again. Unfortunately, as it often happens, I am out of the habit of riding, which makes it difficult to start up again. I didn’t ride while I was pregnant, […]
I see this question all over the internet. “What do I do to become a horse professional?” usually coming from a teenager or someone very early in their career. I understand – you love horses and want to have a lifetime with them. Working with horses would be so fulfilling, and you know you’d love […]
Did you know there’s a museum devoted to the sport and culture of equestrianism? Okay, so it does include other things, but there’s a lot of horse going on here. It’s called the National Sporting Library and Museum, and it’s located in hunt country/horse country, Middleburg Virginia. They offer exhibitions, educational programs, and family activities throughout […]
