Finally! I rode my horse! Okay I mostly walked because the ground was harder then i thought when i first got on and i didn’t get to ride the red-head because she has much more sensitive feets then the wild one. But i did tack up and get on. We did one trot set but […]

Its been too frozen to ride. The ground is covered in snow and beneath that the ground is frozen. I had a glimmer of hope yesterday when it got above 32 and the snow in my backyard melted. Of course its colder at the barn so …no melt. Were supposed to get another inch tonight […]

I always ride with gloves. Hot or cold it doesn’t matter. Since i broke my hand though last spring i’ve been investing in better gloves. I used to just by anything on sale see how i felt about it but once the hand snaps you start to realize that maybe investing in something better is […]

It was Circe’s turn to get clipped. I had done Jezebel the day before and was really happy with how successful it was. Circe is a pretty fuzzy and furry horse. The plan was to give her a little relief when it came to getting too heated up and to shorten the time frame it […]

I know how to barrel race… sorta. I was taught how when i was just barely a teenager. I can do a clover hitch pattern and i always knock my barrels down when entering a ring to just ride on the flat. Its a habit or rather a custom i was taught. I’m sure i […]

Its that time of year again, Horse Expo time! If you didn’t think that Maryland had more horses per capita then any other state just trot on over to the Horse Expo and see them all at one place at one time. Whatever your disciple is you will find something you have to have at […]

Losing something you love is painful, it can rip your heat out of your chest. I do not wish that kind of pain on anyone. Owning animals brings that pain because we out live them. Animals are heartbreaks in the making. They will break your heart. Thats why I do the best I can for […]
