Do you have goosebumps yet? In October 2016, team riders Sarah and Rose rode in the inaugural Race the Wild Coast from Port Edward to Kei Mouth in South Africa.

I don't know how I managed to stay on, perhaps it was the will from my previous thought,… Continue reading You Can’t Ride With Me
If you’re a regular follower of the blog, you will know that Sarah and I can never have just a “normal” ride together. This past weekend, despite the forecast, our goal was to do a long training ride of 40km (25 miles). Fortunately the rain held off on Sunday and we had a dry ride.… Continue reading Never A Dull Moment
It’s a little over three hours’ drive all the way to Ottawa, but gosh was it worth it.

I left my job in Toronto to take one closer to home in Kitchener, I moved in with my (amazing!) boyfriend and I moved Splash to a new barn. Out… Continue reading Ch-ch-ch-changes
For a couple years now I have been doing roping for fun. In early march my youth horse club did a roping clinic for something different to do. In the morning we were taught how to rope and what you do when you get on the horse. We also got on the horses and followed… Continue reading Practice makes perfect
This past weekend was my endurance club's (OCTRA)AGM and banquet. This year it was held in Cobourg which is nice for me because it's about 20 minutes from my house. On Saturday morning until around noon I sat at the ESRR booth, talking to people and selling product. Around noon was when the AGM started… Continue reading The perfect weekend
