Small Fish in a Big Pond

As many of you know, I kind of went MIA when my job with Don Stewart started. This was for many reasons, mostly lack of time and constant exhaustion, but either way, I’m sure a lot of you have forgotten that I exist. That’s okay! I’m back and a lot of things have changed. To

Day One Done

My journey into the word of professional riders began yesterday with a six hour drive from Atlanta to Ocala, Florida. I arrived to an adorable house on Don Stewart’s farm. The walls were clad with aerial views of the farm and various posters from famous shows, such as Devon and the Kentucky National Horse Show.

Chapter 2

Now that “Chapter 1: The Junior Years” is officially over, it’s time to start the next chapter in my life and riding career. Last you heard from me, I finished my last show as a junior after a very successful weekend competing with Don Stewart. While I didn’t qualify for the Medal or the Maclay,

This is Not the End. This is the Beginning.

These last few weeks have been chaotic, crazy, and filled with a multitude of ups and downs. After we finished Tryon on a high note, we headed to Venice, Florida with Ramsey for the last week of the Foxlea Farm show. We had plenty of good rounds and Rams blew me away with how calm

Tryon Summer Series III- Part 1

Well, we’re back in Tryon this weekend! This time, I already had my braider set and ready to go, but we still managed to not pull into the show grounds until 10:00, in spite of my greatest efforts to get there about 6 hours earlier. Better late than never, right? ¬†Anyway, we unpacked, went to

Big Eq Debut

Last weekend, we took Ramsey to a schooling show, where we entered him in the hunter and eq classes to get him used to those kinds of jumps. At first, we had some very amusing trips, with plenty of snorting, over-jumping, and hesitations, but no stops. But, as the weekend went on, and Baby Rams

Back to the Shows

My life has been quite hectic recently, to say the least. I’ve been riding horses and doing school work (today was the last day of school, woooohoooooo) like a madman, and if I get a sliver of free time, I have used that to run. It’s never to late to work on one’s bikini body!

Happy One Year!

Today is a day of much importance. Not only is it Mother’s Day (you’re awesome, Mom!), but I am also cramming for my AP Biology exam. Putting those two things aside, though, today is a very special day. Today marks the one year anniversary of buying Gus. And what a year it has been! When
