Enjoying the Great Outdoors

After all winters cooped up in the indoor, ponies and people BOTH can't wait to get back to riding outside. But even when it's warm, it's usually too rainy, or the footing is too sloppy, or it's suddenly 85 degrees and we can't ride at all when the horses...

Kicking Off the Season!

All of 2017 came and went without a post - not because we weren't doing anything, but because we were doing SO much! We've got just as many shows planned this summer, but hope to be able to relax and enjoy them too. After getting a bit stir...

It Takes a Village

As much experience as I've gained over the years, starting young horses under saddle is not something I've done much of. And since Enzo is a horse who tends to lack confidence in himself, I really wanted to make sure his first rides would help instill more confidence...

Waterloo Summer Finale

So the week after we spent five days at Nationals at ten hours in the trailer might not have been the BEST time to head to five days at a dressage show, but I'm so glad we did! Banana is used to full turnout, and she struggled a bit with all the stall time lately, but...

Home from the 2016 National Show!

We had a fabulous time at the 2016 National Show! The show went off with only a few minor hiccups, Eden Park was a lovely facility, and we enjoyed every bit of the five days spent with horses, family and friends old and new. All in all, we pinned in 11 out of 14...

A Triumphant Return

Well after four years out of the USDF arena (and just as many hip surgeries in that time), it felt so good to be back at Waterloo! Even happier to make our grand comeback to some of our best scores ever, even bringing home my first...

First Field Trip

George settled in SO well at home, that despite being young and green and new, Amy decided to take him out to a schooling show to see how he handled the environment. Not only did he settle in well there too, he handled all of the excitement like a champ, relaxed in...

Worth Their Weight in Gold

Anybody who knows me also knows that my pony Anna is a special one. Not the flashiest or the best put together horse on the planet, her value has always been in her temperament and attitude. From her beginning with us for Amy's first rides after spinal cord surgery,...

Introducing: Washington S-SN!

Sometimes you go to the AHR sales and admire the many lovely horses, and sit on your hands while being entertained by watching the bidding. And sometimes one horse just catches you by surprise and you ponder that horse all night long...

Let Show Season Begin!

On a day far too cold and rainy to feel like May, we officially launched Show Season 2016! Callie was a bit worried, but offered some VERY nice moments in spite of her concern, and Anna offered a some quiet consistent rides that we can build some excitement from as...
