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.
I think I have to do a Maddy update. It has been awhile. Things are going extremely well. Since getting back from vacation, she is just so calm and ready to work. For the first time, she is stretching out in her stride on the lunge line and she is starting to look like a dressage horse:-) I have been riding. By that I mean I am on her back getting her to bend left and right and doing our stops with a hackamore. I have been doing hikes out on the trail with her. She is starting to enjoy our trips and is not spooking at anything...even the ducks. Earlier this week I got a call from her previous owner wondering if I wanted to sell her. She says a guy in Texas wants her bad after seeing her on the Rockin Maddy Ranch website and he is willing to pay lots of money to have her. I have to be honest and say I was curious to know what "lots of money" means, but if it came down to it, I know I would never sell her. I emailed her back, but I still have no answer as to what he wanted to use her for and what is "lots of money." I am pretty content with her. I have seen amazing progress and I look forward to seeing her in the dressage ring. I don't think I could put a price tag on that.
