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.
Our barn manager, Cara, is moving on to greener pastures. She is heading to Idaho to help care for her sick grandfather. We are really going to miss her around the barn. She was a hard worker and great with the horses. She is a good kid with a kind heart. I liked to tease her about guys...she tends to like cowboys and flirts with the farriers and the hay man. When I went to see Clinton Anderson, I had to get a "butt" shot for her. Ahhh...to be that age again. It will be quiet around the barn without the "Killers" and "Offspring" playing on the stereo. The barn threw her a little going away party on Saturday. Everyone showed up and she got a gift certificate from all of us and we had a tasty potluck. Here are some more photos from the party. I am sure we will keep in touch and hopefully she will come back to Oregon in some capacity, to work with us or just ride with us. We wish her the best.
