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.
This time of year it is so hard to decide blanket or no blanket. Well, I chose no blanket and it rained. Who is that grey horse down in the pasture? Ummm, that would be Maddy. She even had mud inside her ears. I do enjoy grooming my horse, so not a big deal. I have been really busy all week. Portland Meadows, the racetrack here in town is done on Tuesday and I have been working on a documentary on the backside all year. I am glad things are coming to an end. It has been a lot of work and I am anxious to just be done so I can have my Saturdays back. Because of my film, I couldn't go with Tracey over at Mustang Diaries down to pick up her mustang:-( I am really excited and envious of her training experience---how cool is that? Lots of stuff coming up in the next two weeks. I am going to a Dan Cecil clinic next Sunday. He trained under Clinton Anderson. I am looking for some strategies to deal with Maddy's defiance. I find that as she gets more confident, she gets reluctant. We are doing lots of riding and planning a trail ride tomorrow if the weather is good. I have my little dressage horse back....you can see her after a good brushing modeling her lovely Wintec Pro.
