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 needed a day to just ride. I wanted to get out into the woods and just be one with my horse. Life has been pretty busy the past couple of weeks. I flew to Colorado to talk with the Parellis, we wrapped on our Keiko Documentary and submitted it to Sundance, I spent countless hours at the chiropractor after the trailer accident, and this weekend was my boyfriend's 20 year class reunion. Whew! I was so happy to hit the trails today and relax. We are in the middle of a heat wave here in Oregon, but you wouldn't know it when deep in the forest. Maddy and I were out for about three hours. I found a couple tree farms I hadn't ridden through before and a great new cantering path. I took a quick video clip while riding through and even managed to set my camera on a stump and get a "not so great" self portrait. Dang leaf! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
