Childhood Horse Photo Album

My mom recently made me come get a bunch of stuff from her house. Stuff that I’ve left there basically since I left home 11(?) years ago. I suggested she just throw it all in the trash, and asked if I could throw it in her trash, but she told me I can throw it […]

Side Saddle Chase Benefit Gala

Holy smokes, I’m still alive! I feel like I haven’t posted in forever! I’m still kickin’ though… just haven’t been feeling inspired to write anything, despite things happening, and me thinking, “man, I should blog about that.”  Well, I’ll start with my favorite thing to happen recently – I went to a benefit gala!  The […]

Working on Transitions

riding lesson

I had a lesson over the weekend focused on making smooth transitions. It wasn’t so much that it was hard, but just something that isn’t always focused on, so I think it was good to work on it. It had its good points and its bad points. Good point – Berry is holding herself much […]

New York City

In the time of my recent silence, I took a trip to New York City! It’s so close to me, and yet I’ve never actually explored the city. I did pass through one time to get on a cruise ship, but I won’t count that. I didn’t have much of a desire to go before, […]

I haven’t had a lesson for a while, but I can physically […]

The last time I rode was in a lesson at the beginning of December. My goodness, how time flies! I’m definitely looking forward to the longer days of sunshine! And I’ll need to take advantage of every moment I have, as I signed up for two lessons in February through a riding club I joined. They […]

Hay Day

Yesterday, I watched with satisfaction as my hay guy dropped two fresh round bales in with the babies. Then, he dropped a third to be put in storage. We pushed it in next to the remains of a fourth round bale. I don’t have to worry about hay for at least a month. Hay has […]

Weanling Walk

Over the weekend we did Weanling Walk 2: The Reckoning. Weanling Walk 1 is here.  Weanling Walk 2 ended up being much better! Who would have thought a sequel would have been better than the original?!  This time, I stuck a camera similar to a GoPro on my head and recorded the whole thing. The […]
