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 got into a bad accident yesterday and the only way it is connected to horses is that I was driving FROM the barn. I was sitting at a flagger stop by a construction zone and all of a sudden WHAM! A car plows into me from behind. Felt like a got hit in the head with a bat. My face hit the steering wheel and I have a 2 inch cut across my lid and a giant mass on the back of my head. I got to ride in an ambulance...I think my poor little Geo Tracker is totaled. She was such a good little car...sad she had to go out that way. I was wearing my riding clothes, so everyone thought I was bucked off a horse in the emergency room. I am hurting today, very sore with a big black eye and stitches, but recovering. Amazing how one little event can really rattle your world. Now I have to deal with insurance, no vehicle, possible truck shopping, and doctors. All I wanted to do this weekend is hit the trails, not sure if I will feel good enough to ride by Saturday, but I am working on it.
