About Me:
I have been riding my entire life! I have ridden in many disciplines including hunters, jumpers, western pleasure, breed shows (arabian, and quarter horse), speed events, dressage and so on. About 9 years ago I discovered Parelli Natural horsemanship, and I have been hooked ever since. I am now working on my level 4 in parelli, and looking for something new to try! I have always wanted to try endurance, and I now have the perfect place to train for it! My farm borders an equestrian park that I can ride right onto, so finding a place to train is the easy part. I have an 8 year old arabian mare that is fine boned and dainty. She has energy to spare, and is as bold as a red pen. I think that she will be perfect for this sport. Here is the catch...With as much equine experience as I have, I have NO CLUE about anything to do with endurance! I would love to find a friend that could show me the ropes so to speak. I know that there are a bunch of rides in my area, and I would love to go and see how they are run, and start preparing my mount, and myself for an LD next year perhaps. Any takers?

Equine Humor

Equine humor

Do horses have a sense of humor? If they did, then wouldn't it be logical to assume that they have other human emotions? Empathy, frustration, anger, disappointment, joy? Some might say that I am anthropomorphizing. Putting my own uniquely human feelings upon an animal incapable of the same. That may be true, but there are some "emotions" that can be categorized as instinct. How many of us have been on a horse that is filled with fear? How about, excitement or frustration? I… Continue

She's a little Spooky

"She's a little spooky". Most people, upon hearing this phrase, would probably conjure an image of a willowy girl in black clothes wearing black makeup, who claims to see dead people. For those of us who are equine inclined, however, a very different image, and a whole different set of emotions, come to mind.

Scenario number one: "The Sleeper"

You are on hour number two on a very pleasant trail ride. You are astride your Trusty steed that is about a hundred years old and knows the… Continue

Jumping the Fence

Posted on January 27, 2010 at 8:34am 2 Comments

I have grown up on the back of a horse. The odyssey on which my mounts and I have embarked in my short 29 years has been convoluted, exhilarating, frustrating, devastating, and enlightening.

"Buck" (Wow I just now realized the irony of that name for a horse). It all started on the day of my fifth birthday. Buck came to my party at our home in Naples, Florida. From that moment on, I was hooked. He was (as I recall in my minds eye) a very big horse. Slick, soft, bay, and as gentle as they… Continue

Sorry Karry, only saw your comment now. Yes Ireland is really horsey but mainly for racing, showjumping and hunting. It seems like if there's not a jump in front of us we can't be bothered.Trail riding is left mainly to the tourists and endurance riding is a very minority sport. I fox hunted once but after that only did mock hunting which is still completely insane. You basically play follow the leader galloping through farms jumping ditches,hedges, stones walls gates - whatever gets in the way! loads of mucky,bloody faces!

Thanks! I love my boys ears! They just make his left-brain extroverted horsenality even more obvious. He is something else, that is for sure, loud about everything. Love your photos, Sonata looks like a gem! Wish you a happy new year and many new endurance miles!
