Two years have flown by, but I can still remember the day prince was born. He's turning out to be a pretty amazing little horse, except now he's not so little. With the dam being a paint 13"3 and a stud being an Arab 15"2, he's already 14"1, he’s definitely going to be a good… Continue reading Two years old
A couple of weeks ago the pony club that I am a member of decided to do the mannequin challenge. Now for those who don’t know what that is, it is a viral Internet video trend where people remain frozen like mannequins while a moving camera films, with the song "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd… Continue reading Mannequin challenge
It’s a little over three hours’ drive all the way to Ottawa, but gosh was it worth it. The Ottawa Valley Hunt Club does drag hunting and, for people that don’t know about hunting, a drag hunt is a set path the hounds follow that the “fox” has been. This is much faster than live… Continue reading Through the Fields and Over the Jumps
October 22nd was my first joint hunt, Beaver meadow hunt club (my hunt club) and Toronto North York. The last couple of hunts I’ve ridden at I’ve unfortunately fallen off at, not gotten hurt, but an unplanned dismount definitely took place. First on what I thought my most trusted mount was, but apparently not Angel… Continue reading Hunting with Toronto North York Hunt
From riding my coach’s horse Beau, to riding my own horses in both endurance and mounted games, I would say I'm pretty busy. This past weekend was quite busy, with having a show each day this weekend. Over the whole weekend Beau was a good boy. With some classes better than others because you can't… Continue reading Show Days
September 10 I was supposed to go to a mounted games meet in Newmarket, but unfortunately rain loves to happen on the weekends so sadly it was canceled. The 11th was another horse show for me and Beau. The show was in Bethany at Sky haven. They have a huge arena and outdoor ring with… Continue reading Better late then never!
Starting last fall I started riding my coach’s horses. I started showing for her in spring of this year riding her 6 year old Morgan gelding Beau. This year I’ve been mainly showing flat, with some jumping shows. Before me Beau has not really done any showing and this year he’s done so well. He’s… Continue reading Two for the show
Through the years of doing endurance in AERC and OCTRA I have learned each ride has its challenges. Some challenges are much harder than others, some are more difficult for different people. Our first pioneer ride up in Madawaska was very challenging. From winding roads, to the hills and the rocks it was for sure… Continue reading Something ’bout the North
I don't think I could have a better summer: from the amazing view, to all my new friends, a horse between my legs and the wind blowing my hair. Ya, for sure I miss my home and my bed, but I wouldn't trade this summer for anything. Most of my blogs are mainly me talking about… Continue reading Times to remember
Third times a charm? Or so they say! Well apparently it true because at the third competition of 2016 all of my horses completed the ride they were entered in. Let’s just add in that how could I not do well that would be the worst luck for the ride right before my birthday. 17 years… Continue reading Third try lucky? I’d say so!
