I am a videographer in Portland, Oregon with a love for all things horses. Originally from Minnesota, my childhood was spent on racetracks across the Midwest. I am currently training my dream horse with hopes of excelling at dressage and Parelli. I have a Cairn Terrier, Ellie, and an old cat named Winston. I am fortunate to have a pretty nice boyfriend who understands and supports my love of horses. My blog helps keep a record of my successes and failures and helps friends and family enjoy the journey with me.
Every time I drive out to Templeton, I pass miles of Christmas tree farms and I see beautiful Mt. Hood as I pull in the driveway. I think it is so amazing that this magnificent mountain is right in Maddy's backyard. The mountains are such a treat for me because I grew up in Minnesota. In the land of 16,000 lakes, a decent hill is a rare find! I enjoy taking my friends and family that come to visit up to Hood for some of Timberlines famous hot chocolate. Here is a little trivia for those that don't know...the exteriors of the lodge in "The Shining" are Timberline Lodge on the top of Mt. Hood.....here's Johnny!!
