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 about time someone stood up for those things everyone hates.
When the barn feels like a high school clique, what can you do about it?

There’s something that is so beautiful about the equine form, especially when they are highly conditioned for peak performance in their discipline. […]
I follow Noelle Floyd on Instagram and Facebook. I’ve always appreciated the articles, and their design choices have been appealing. When a new shirt from them popped up on my feed, stylized by Instagrammer Milton Menasco, I went over to Noelle Floyd to take a closer look, and it hit me then. It is literally […]
Have you ever noticed that (usually) the older a rider gets, the more fearful they get? They’ll even tell stories of when they were young, jumping wheel barrows or picnic tables, galloping through people’s yards, or doing backflips off their horse?
