I was recently honored to be included in the list of Top 60 Dressage blogs as number 33! (Click here to see the list) 

As 2018 starts off, I am setting myself up for a big year. I have some exciting plans for my blog and Etsy store that I am continuing to grow. I've learned so much and have gotten so much support from other equestrian related...

As the end of the year approaches, I wanted to let my followers know that one of my best purchases for 2017 has been this Easy Up Saddle Cart that I found through Schneider's Saddlery (Click here)

Since I've moved to this new barn the layout is a bit different. DaVinci is in an outdoor shed row (which he loves!) and the tack room is attached...

Woo! It's been awhile since doing an actual blog post. I've had severe writer's block lately and I've been keeping busy with my day job and travel.  Let's hope that I can get my creative juices flowing again. Here we go........

Since DaVinci has come into my life I've learned a lot about him via Trial and Error. I think this is just the adjust...

Summer is here and so is the heat! We've had beautiful Colorado weather lately with the occasional storms that bring lots of rain (it's been great!).

@Horze Juliet Riding Tights-These are super comfy and super light weight! Dirt doesn't stick to these easily which I really like. The silicone grip isn't heavy duty but it's plenty to keep you fr...

Thanks to The Horse is Not Black blog for the questions!

  1. What are your summer goals? Horse related: To do at least one horse show with DaVinci! Best case scenario is Dressage in the Rockies in August. Worst case is a schooling show. Fitness related: keep getting in shape and slimming down another 5-8 lbs. Doing this by 1x/week with persona...

This weekend we hosted a super fun Kentucky Derby Party! We had mint juleps, bourbon meatballs, mini derby pies, ham and cheese sliders, and mini chicken and waffles, etc. Outside we also had cornhole set up and the weather was perfect for it!

I was really bad about getting pictures of the full table set up with food and flowers and everything...

Last weekend we did a super fun trip for Keeneland! Below are some of the highlights and of course, lots of horses!

We arrived at the Louisville airport after a long travel day. I wore my super cute dressage scarf by @MangoBayDesign

For dinner we visited the Village Idiot in downtown Lexington. The bar was super fun with Horse Shoe Tap handles...

As I was in the FedEx store yesterday shipping off my County that I sold, I ended up in a very peculiar situation that I had not experienced before....The Equestrian Twilight Zone! Dun dun dunnnnnn....

It was just a regular day dropping off a saddle to be shipped to it's lucky new owner. When I entered the store I was greeted by a lady at the...

The past 2-3 weeks have been a blur. I lost Baby due to an impaction colic that caused a ruptured intestine. He was 22 and I can't even describe how sad it has been without him.

My good friend Tasia, painted this wonderful portrait of him. I just love it and was blown away by all of the support I've received. 

 On a lighter note I just wanted t...

So until recently, I hadn't really looked at my helmet after getting thrown from Vienna. All I can say is "Wow". I didn't realize my head hit the white vinyl fence and I landed so hard that it cracked the helmet. This is why I ALWAYS wear a helmet. It really did save me from a concussion, or even worse.....

So shout out to all those helmets th...

The search is finally over! Thank goodness! I am so happy to introduce the new addition to our family, DaVinci......

 This gorgeous boy was recently imported from Holland as a stallion. He's 4 years old and 16.2 hands. He was gelded a few months ago, and is sweet as can be! I tried him out on Saturday and we picked him up on Sunday. 

He's...

Let's begin this by saying that I am very disappointed with how the last two weeks have panned out. 

Here I was, so excited to start working with a new horse that we would hopefully end up buying, next thing I know we are returning her a two weeks later. 
 

 I asked a million questions about this horse before even going to try her out...

So we are moving towards the end of January, can't believe it's almost over. I do have some exciting news! As of last weekend I have started a trial to own purchase agreement on a 14 year old Mare named Vienna. She is a Fresian/TB cr...

The other day I was browsing the Target isles, not really looking for anything particular, and then BAM! my inner equestrian spidey sense went off!

 So not only does this tote have super cute leather accents on the handle and trim, but it has pockets that you could put spray bottles in! The name of it was Garden Tote and the price is $24.99....
