First off, I really think we need to appreciate #equestrianlife tanlines for a moment... I think there was one year that I wore shorts right out of the gate and thought I'd never see my legs this fluorescent again. Well hello there pale skin! Brantley and I had a pretty incredible clinic with Allison Springer… Continue reading Singing and Eventing…
Being the winner of the warm-up is a real thing. I always laughed when I heard people say it but then, that's exactly what we've become. The key has been to only give myself about 15 minutes to warm-up that way I don't psych myself out and Brantley doesn't think his job is done. Of… Continue reading Course Brook 5.27.18 – Dressage
Why do I keep letting it go this long? Instagram to the rescue if you've been following along. We've been kicking butt in the arena minus some saddle fit issues and last weekend was our first schooling trial. And this guy was totally ready to kick some ass. I was mostly worried about dressage but… Continue reading What is this? A Blog Post?
Oh the weather outside is frightful. Actually, up until yesterday, it has been absolutely gorgeous! 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. Lots of power outages but luckily not at any of the houses that I'm… Continue reading And the World Turns…

Your level of success is based on the amount of time and work you put in right? Sometimes it takes a few months. Sometimes a… Continue reading The Pet-Sitting Life
We used to adventure on a consistent basis but for some reason I've lost that. Same walks. Same neighborhoods... Over and over again. So on Saturday we went to the beach. I forget how lucky we are that we have just about everything in this tiny state within a 20-30 minute radius. It was cold… Continue reading All Work, No Play
The last couple weeks were full of late night rides alone and with friends... Okay... Just one friend - Amanda and Red! Luckily we got in enough rides for me not to feel bad about lack of ride time this week. I truly can't believe January is just about over, but I'm glad because with… Continue reading Goodbye January
Sometimes I just like to spend time in the dirt with my own thoughts listening to the wind howl through the cracks in the indoor. Safest place to sit? Probably not. But there's something incredibly comforting knowing that even though there are scary monsters out there this time of year... he'd rather just sit… Continue reading And We’re Back!
First off, I wanted to put a shout out to my Blogger Secret Santa Emilie from Because Pony. I'm always amazed how talented this group of bloggers are. Thank you so much for this! I can't wait to see what else you have in store! Right now she is having a sale to support some… Continue reading Catching Zzzz in Negative Temps
