About

An Equestrian Life is a blog about horses, the horse lifestyle, and horse culture. My name is Courtney, and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by!

I started this blog in 2014 as a personal blog on WordPress, and since my life revolves around horses, the content became almost entirely about horses. In 2016 I made the official switch to my own URL, naming my blog An Equestrian Life to encompass all aspects of my horse life – from the horses themselves, to maintaining a farm property, riding lessons, events, travel, family, and living life with the horses. I also like to explore the culture of horses – from different disciplines to horsekeeping to the history of horses.

I also love photography, whether photographing horses, people, or landscapes. I have a not-so-secret ambition to be a fine art photographer. Follow me on instagram

The nitty gritty of my horses:

I have 4 horses.

Vintage is my horse from my childhood, who would still be going strong if not for a lingering fetlock joint issue (which she caused herself, by jumping out her stall window, banged it up good).

Berry is my primary riding horse, and we’ve had some good times together. My blog has mainly followed what Berry and I have done together.

Pony Man, my pony, was bought and trained for my future child, who is finally here, and he will be getting into shape to be ridden by her.  

Stu is my baby horse, who acts like a baby horse, and is currently driving me crazy by breaking through fences and playing with anything he has access to. Hopefully with training and maturity he will grow out of these things.
