Recently, Eventing Nation posted an article titled, 'Is This Sport Safe Enough? Breaking Down the Latest Eventing Statistics.' I believe that this article is very appropriate for all riders to read, whether eventers or not. The eventing world has seen some hard times in the past couple of months as multiple riders (and horses) have … Continue reading In Response…
This app has changed my life. Why? Because hikes I didn't even know about have become available to me at the tip of my fingers. For anyone that loves the outdoors (hiking, camping, cycling, etc.), this is the app for you. You can download it free on the app store and gain so much … Continue reading The Outbound

Recently, Raven somehow hurt herself and needed a couple of months off. This wasn't our first rodeo, so I came up with a couple tips I've learned … Continue reading Combatting Stall Rest

Ears - All animals have ears … Continue reading Body Language Series: Expressions

Let me tell you about my day today. If you don't want to read about how irritating people are, feel free to skip this post!
