NEHC Equitation Medal Winner

05.17.15 | Comment

Had an amazing weekend at my first NEPtHA show. Unanimous wins in Hunter Under Saddle, Disciplined Rail, and Horsemanship, the NEHC Hunter medal winner and wins in showmanship and Ideal. Thank you @pmb2691 for letting me be part of the #Krognation team, I

To say that the show this weekend went well would be a complete understatement. Kroger was on his very best behavior and totally took care of me. We had wins in showmanship, Western Ideal, and unanimous wins in Hunter Under Saddle, English Eq, English Disciplined Rail, and English Ideal, and Horsemanship. We also won the medal in the NEHC Equitation Medal Class qualifying us for a show at Eastern States in October. Everyone was so nice and welcoming and the show grounds were gorgeous. It was exactly what I needed two weeks before we head to Tulsa for the World Show, I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.

Wishing I could be @indianrockstables all day today getting ponies ready for the show. Can't believe the 2015 season starts tomorrow, I have a feeling it's going to be amazing. #showseason #horseshow #krognation #indianrockstables #idratherberiding

In just two weeks I’m taking this guy to my first New England Pinto Show! I’m so excited to be showing at the breed shows again. I loved showing the Quarter Horse circuit when I lived in Michigan and am excited to see what the New England circuits are like.

The @leverethare table is all set up at the BHLDN / Anthro bridal show in Chestnut Hill. Come say hi and see lots of beautiful wedding goodies! 5-8 tonight!!

When my friend Jenny of Leveret & Hare asked me to help her out with a wedding fair at BHLDN I happily said yes. Jenny does incredibly beautiful calligraphy and I was so excited to be able to talk to people about how talented she is and how she could help them with their wedding. Her entire booth was beautiful, the flowers, the displays and the invitations suites she designed.

Snowcation’s Over

03.28.15 | Comment

Not sure if it was the long pep talk, the apple bribe, or the lounging him three times before I got on but this big handsome guy finally remembered what it's like to be a show horse. Snowcation is officially over! #krognation #pinto #paint #showseason

Big things happened this winter with this big fella. We decided to take him to the Pinto World Show in June. After the outrageous amount of snow we got in February and March it’s been really tough to get in good quality rides. I’ve had a few scares with him having a little more energy and attitude than normal but today, he remembered what it’s all about. It could be because I lounged him three times before I got on. Or, it could be that he recognized the panic in my voice when I told him we had the biggest show of our lives in 3 months.

Better than a space heater #dogsofinstagram #pointer #sleepypup

This guy is never far from our feet. He sleeps most of the day while we work. Today he decided to sleep on me while I worked upstairs.

Springtime Walks

Sunny Fresh Pond adventure with my favorite pup today. #FreshPond #Huckleberry #dogsofinstagram

I know what you’re thinking – this doesn’t look like spring. This looks like there are 2 feet of snow on the ground still. That’s because there is. But I swear, it’s melting. Slowly, but it’s going to go away, it just has to.

SSHC Banquet

What a great way to celebrate the 2014 season @indianrockstables. Thank you @pmb2691 for making us champions!

Last summer was by far one of my favorites. I feel so lucky to have found such an amazing barn full of people who are so enouraging and supportive. And a trainer that is so talented, hardworking, and generous. Paige let me ride her horse last year and getting to work with him has been so much fun. We were the year end champions in Color Halter, Color Pleasure and the Reserve Showmanship Champion. We celebrated together at a banquet, it was so fun to see the rest of the team winning in their divisions. I’ve never felt luckier to be part of such an amazing group.

Red Hook Sunset

It was chilly today but the setting sun sure was pretty. #redhook

Ryan and I are in New York for the weekend. We’ve got some work to do the next few days but are spending the free time we do have checking out all of the wonderful little shops the city has to offer. We were in Red Hook today and got to see this awesome sunset. It was pretty cold but we couldn’t resist stopping to enjoy it.
