A Little Freedom… And an OTTB Story

"Freedom is the open window through which pours the sunlight of the human spirit and human dignity."- Herbert Hoover I finally had a moment of freedom on Saturday. Quick brush job and some orange polos, off we went. Almost a month without a saddle on his back, Brantley was steady and ready to explore. Of… Continue reading A Little Freedom… And an OTTB Story

Holiday Craze

"Winter is a season of recovery and preparation." - Paul Theroux I'd like to think that this is true but as most equestrians right now, seasonal depression is a thing.

Even yesterday wasn't too bad minus the fact that it was so windy that a tractor-trailer rolled over on the Newport Bridge... Just a tad windy.

Keep Calm…

Figured I would do a little blogging while I sip this cup of super hot tea. Anyone else out there tea drinkers? I go through waves where I drink a lot and I'm not quite sure if it helps me sleep or not but it sure doesn't hurt. And it's a little bit better for… Continue reading Keep Calm…
