I'm so excited to be back to the blog. The past year has been such a great opportunity to "sight in" my my focus to exactly where it needs to be right now. Being a mom is an ever-changing job description and I have embraced this instead of trying to force-fit horse tra...

So Paige did it.  Paige finally rode her freestyle.  And there were Unicorns aplenty.

I can remember very clearly my first time witnessing a bona-fide jumper schooling a fence: Not a kid throwing a horse at a scary airy vertical hanging in the middle of a ring, but a real, honest-to-goodness jumper being schooled to the height of his ability, watching h...
