My muttled & muddy first post!

Let me start off by saying I'm not very good at this 'blogging thang'.  As you'll find out, I'm a very busy person and often struggle to commit to things that require any energy beyond my usual hobbies.  If you saw that episode of House where the woman was addicted to blogging, I'm basically the complete opposite.  Alas, through the pressure of a great friend (hehe, you know who you are!) I'm giving this a whirl.

Kidd, Summer 2015 in our arena at home


As I mentioned in my "About Me" segment, I used to write a few key notes down in a note book after each ride.  As someone who is constantly battling a negative mindset I find it really helps me realize the positives of each ride.  I started blogging on a different host as a means of keeping track of our progress without having to write it all out by hand (how very 21st century of me, right??) but I've decided to 'restart' on BlogSpot in the hopes that accumulating some followers and being able to follow other blogs easier will keep me motivated. Chances are I won't be tracking every ride, or every wonderful thing that happens to us for that matter, but I will do my best for my own personal self to keep this as up to date as my schedule will allow.

This Blog is probably going to stretch all over the place, from the lifestyle of the poor and sore (IE my life) to what products i'm using, my random analogies on what's in the news, training, equipment and everything in between, so we might as well jump into it guns ablazin' with both feet first.  Take what I say with a grain of salt, and always sit back and mull over other peoples words before jumping aboard their own personal wagon to crazy-town.  We're all entitled to our own opinions and the ugliest thing in this world is a closed mind.

AE Bloghop: 12 Tough Questions

Unfortunately, the skies have opened once again and the nearly dry ground is once again, excessively saturated, which means no riding today.  I do have some field trips planned for the near future, but for now, a blog hop to kill the time as the rain drizzles and drips off my tin roof - We'll start with something easy before getting into the nitty-gritty. Q1:  What hobbies do you have outside of riding? Life on a farm is very busy, and I work full time and I am also taking some courses part time as well.  In addition to riding, we raise chickens for eggs and meat, grow and harvest our own hay and crops.  We also tend a large garden and I am planning on attending some local Farmers Markets in the near future to sell eggs and some things from our garden! Q2: What is your boarding situation?  Are you happy with it? I have a 160 acre farm, but sadly given the climate it is really only conducive to seasonal riding.  Being in Northern Alberta, our winters average 7 m

2021 Blogger Secret Santa

Many people missed the Blogger Secret Santa that I hosted last year after speaking with The Printable Pony, our fearless leader in festive fun for the past several years, and in an effort to not step on her toes again I reached out again but sadly didn't receive a response. I'm going to assume she's no longer able to host the Secret Santa (lets face it, she's way better at it than me so wahhh!!) so I'll give it a whirl again because it's so fun! PLEASE SHARE THIS! If you're blogging, post a link in your blog even if it doesn't apply, send to friends, make a special blog post with a link, and so on!  The more people that participate, the better! Last year the cut-off was November 20th and many gifts were still sent/received very late, so I'm going to make the cut off November 10th and hopefully that helps!   I am hoping to get everyone the information for their draw within a few days following the deadline to allow for ample time to research, shop and
