Singing and Eventing…

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…

Course Brook 5.27.18 – Dressage

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

And the World Turns…

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…

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…

Holiday Countdown

When I pack up after a long week of overnights, I always mumble and grumble asking myself why. Why am I doing this? Why did I pick this? Will I ever sleep in my own bed again... Or hell... Will I ever have my own apartment at this point? But I turned around this time… Continue reading Holiday Countdown

Lost…

A little lost... I've definitely ridden Cody more than my own horse. You'd think I could say, "Well at least I'm in the saddle" but mentally, it's not the same. Although having my little shadow with me is a definite plus, it's not the same. I keep burying myself in work and not even purposely.… Continue reading Lost…

Some Saddle Time

Thanksgiving always brings late nights and early mornings... Too late... And too early. I think I averaged about 3.5 hours of sleep from Wednesday through Monday morning. Thanksgiving Day wasn't even the craziest of days... It was more the weekend. You don't really think about how much people travel that time of year but holy… Continue reading Some Saddle Time
