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.
A lot of changes coming my way. My good friend Beth is leaving for a job in New York with CNN in two weeks. I have been so focused on helping her with things it is just starting to sink in that she is leaving. It makes me sad. We worked together in Spokane and then Portland. I am really going to miss her:-( I am to become an aunt in June, so have been sewing things like crazy. I feel like when I am not at the barn, I am at a fabric store. Maddy is now "rideable" so I need to get back on track with lesson plans and goals. I am looking at a Circle Y Flex tree saddle next week with hopes that it fits. It is a couple years old, buts hardly used. I have heard good and bad about flex trees. Anyone out there have an opinion? My mom is coming out in a couple weeks...I can't wait. We always have so much fun going to garage sales and antique shops. She is so good for projects around my house and we just have fun. My Dan Cecil clinic was cancelled. I was bummed, but I am going to a Clinton Anderson Clinic in Prineville next weekend. Yeah! It is also the same weekend as the Northwest Horse Expo down in Albany, so I am going to have to miss it. I know I am rambling, but lots of thoughts about what is ahead for me in the next couple of weeks along with a mix of emotions.
