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.
Kasey and I have been hitting the trails hard. We went out Saturday and Sunday to two different parks. I had a little trouble with trailer loading on Saturday, but today, she walked right in. I think things are really progressing nicely with Maddy's trail experiences. I am just trying to build on one positive experience after the other. Kasey is willing to "school" along the way if something comes up and we both enjoy a leisurely pace with bouts of trotting and cantering on long stretches. It is so nice to finally have someone who enjoys riding the same way I do. I have come to realize that these excursions take a lot of organization. I am working on getting the right tack, including better fitting boots. Currently I have two sets of Boa Boots, but the fronts are a little big, so I am working on getting a pair of Easy Boot Epics. I really like how those fit. The Boas seem a little clunky, although I do like how easy they are to put on and take off. Also, have to buy a hay bag and cantle pack...so much to think about! But I could not be happier. Things are progressing with Maddy and I had a new horse bud who I really enjoy hanging with. In this photo, Kasey is riding "Pantz." Her cute Appaloosa.
