Who I Am

As you all know, I am looking for a horse to lease for a few shows so I can qualify for the Maclay Regionals. Gus isn’t quite ready for the 3’6″ and Ramsey won’t be ready for a while. My search for a horse to lease is proving to be impossible for a few very

Money Can’t Buy Happiness

Today was a fantastic day. The sun was shining, a breeze was blowing, and I was surrounded by my favorite thing in this world; horses. Once again, my wonderful equine friends proved to me that money can’t buy happiness. Sure, it helps, but it’s not the price you paid that gives a horse the ability

Back to Reality

It has officially been a week since I left the heavenly world of HITS Ocala and came home. In some ways, it feels almost foreign to be back home. In other ways, it feels like I never left. Whether or not my trip to Ocala actually happened, instead of being just a marvelous dream, it

Ocala 2014: Week 2 Day 4

Well, today was an amusing day, but the last two weeks of showing definitely caught up to us. Both Mac Miller and I were completely exhausted. We did three courses: the second part of the Marshall & Sterling, the USEF Medal, and the WIHS Jumper Phase. The first two courses were actually really good, minus

Ocala 2014: Week 2 Day 3

Today started with a 9 AM hack, where Mac Miller was a doll. I was only on him for about 25 minutes because he was being so good. We walked leisurely back to the barn, Pablo helped me untack, and then the waiting for the WIHS Hunter Phase began. Luckily, this time, instead of being

Ocala 2014: Week 2 Day 2

Today started with a 6:45 am hack. Mac Miller was hot to trot, but settled down nicely by the end of the 45-minute ride. I took him back to the barn, where my new buddy, Pablo, helped me untack and put Miller away. I then ran back to the hotel for a nap so I

Ocala 2014: Week 2 Day 1

Last week, my weekend ended on a great day with an even better text from Don. His entire team was so welcoming to me and made me feel like I had been part of the barn my entire life. No one hesitated to invite me back, and Don made that clear with the text he

Ocala 2014: Day 5

Before I tell you all how today went, I would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who reached out to me yesterday. It felt like a really bad day, but all of your comments and messages really helped me keep things in perspective, release my frustrations, and focus on my riding

Ocala 2014: Day 4

Today was an incredibly frustrating day. We started off in the WHIS Hunter Phase. It was a good course, minus the fact that, once again, Mac didn’t change his hind end. Of course, I was trying to set him up much better for them because of the missed change yesterday, but my attempts seemed to

Ocala 2014: Day 3

I think I started my last post by saying I was exhausted, but I’m too exhausted right now to remember. So, excuse me if I am repeating myself, but I am completely exhausted. Today started with a 6:45 am lesson. With about 25-30 horses in the ring, it was insanity, as you might imagine. As
