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 am testing out a Circle Y Park and Trail saddle. I love the saddle, but I am worried it is a little wide and sits low on her withers even though it has semi-quarter bars. If I can get down to Salem, I want to stop in at Double H and take some photos and see what they think. I am hoping for nice weather this weekend so I can hit the trails on it. I used it in my lesson today and we had the best passenger lesson yet. I went 25 minutes at the trot. I only had to correct her a handful of times to keep gait. It was awesome. So I am on cloud nine right now and edging closer to my goal of a cantering passenger session.
