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 went out on the trail today! Back in August when Maddy was diagnosed with her coffin bone fracture, I wasn't sure we would ever do this again. We spent about two hours out there on BLM land that adjoins Templeton Equestrian Center. It was my first trail ride since I bought her, so I was curious to see how she reacted to everything. She was awesome. I am so proud of her today. She kept it together and even marched through a puddle. She got a nice easy workout and the sun felt so good. I wish I had my camera. I got this shot with my cell phone after we got back---she donned her western wear today and really worked up a sweat from the hills. Just so happy.
