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 happened this week. Maddy and I moved over to our new barn, Lundervold Stables. It is about 4 miles down the road from Templeton Equestrian Center, so I am still close to all my old friends. The move went pretty smooth. We got off the trailer and I let her take everything in. I took her over to graze and we got visit different spots on the property and then back to her grazing spot. It was a good tactic to get her adjusted. It went smoother than I expected. I need to quit underestimating my horse:-) I just love my new place. I am paying $350 a month and saving alot without sacrificing. It is a beautiful place with good people and trails right out the back door. Today I went on my first trail ride with my new barn owner, Tammy. I wish I had my camera. The trails are amazing. When we got back I let Maddy graze out in one of the pasture. Look at that grass! Up to her knees...and that is just one of 5 huge pastures they rotate around on. She was in heaven. Her ears flopped to the sides and her eyes half closed and she just had huge mouthfuls of horse candy:-). We are doing about half hour on the grass and then out to a "mudd pasture" or her run. We are both very content and happy even though we left a wonderful place with lots of good memories, I am ready to try something new...feels a bit like leaving the nest off on a new adventure. Check out my new round pen....can you say "liberty!"
