Favorite show picture

PC: Andres Bergsneider – used with purchase

This wasn’t a successful event for us, but I do love this picture.

Favorite non-show picture

This photo reminds me of how much I actually do enjoy riding Levi. When he’s good, he’s so, so good.

Favorite thing you bought 


I think this wins by a long-shot.

Favorite moment on horseback

I have so much more fun going to random games days than I do showing. Sometimes you have to just get out there and enjoy the horse you have.


Favorite moment out of the saddle

Little horse in a big world

My husband and I spend a lot of time together since we both ride. I love that. But it’s not time out of the saddle – unless you count the hours we spend in the car together. Going to Twin was different though. I wasn’t riding, so I could just concentrate on playing groom and helping him get out there and show off just how amazing little Mustangs can be.

Favorite “between the ears” picture

Damn California really is pretty.

Favorite horse book or article

Technically I read this at the very end of December 2017, but it was my favorite. My husband and I listened to the audiobook together and I highly recommend it. The history of the Oregon trail is really interesting, but the information about mules then and now was the best part. Mules were much more important in American history than you might think. You don’t need to love mules to like this book either. I think any equestrian will enjoy it and any history, travel, or adventure buff will as well

Favorite horse ridden (or groomed/cared for) aside from your own

PC: MGO – used with purchase

Does Eugene count? I think he should as he’s really not mine. He’d be the first one to tell you that too. He really only likes my husband and frequently won’t even let me catch him, despite the fact that I feed him. But he’s an awesome little horse who tries harder than any other horse I’ve ever met. But if he doesn’t count, Devro, my friend’s Mustang – also out of the Carson City prison training program – was a lot of fun to ride too.

Favorite fence that you successfully jumped or movement that you conquered

Not the best shot, but if you read my post about the Woodside event, you’ll know I was panicking the entire weekend about this jump. I was literally sick over it. So getting over it was a big deal.

    Soooo many great shots. The show photo and photo from home (and every other photo from your home you’ve posted since moving) are absolutely swoon-worthy!
