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.

Blog Hop: 2020 Summary; Covid Edition

 While we all live in different towns, have different goals and different lives - but one thing that we all have in common is what a wild and wonky year 2020 was.  The reality is, it's all affected us in one way or another, and with 2020 coming to an end it's time to reflect and look hopeful towards an improved 2021. What's the best thing that happened to you in 2020? Personal: Hands down, the birth of my daughter .  After 4 years of fertility struggles, I'm beyond grateful and though some days feel like an eternity of struggle, confusion and pain, my heart has never been more full. Horsey: It's hard to choose. Despite hardly riding, I've had a lot of wonderful horsey-filled memories this year.  From the birth of Phascinating BRR , my second homebred to date, to the few rides I got to enjoy and making a major investment in my breeding business, there's been lots to be thankful for. What's the worst thing that happened to you in 2020? Personal: It's

The Purge

I've been mulling over the idea of doing a post regarding the integrity (or occasional lack of) in the equestrian community for some time, but I couldn't seem to develop a clear vision in my head of how I wanted to piece it together.  I think the reality is, the topic in itself is messy and clouded at best, so I decided to throw all my thoughts out through my fingertips and help myself make sense of all these big feelings I've got swirling around. It's no secret that to some extent, equestrian activities are for the elite. I'm not necessarily talking about those who were born into a Trust Fund or were gifted exceptionally talented horses with easy access to top quality instruction and services but of course, those exist too. I'm talking more so about us - average people.  While you're probably thinking " umm, I'm far from elite and I'm just barely squeeking by * stirs ramen* ", I agree and I hear you when you say you work bloody hard to sup

Blogger Secret Santa 2020

 If you're like me, you've been patiently waiting for the announcement - if you're really like me, you got embarassingly impatient and reached out to The Printable Pony, our fearless leader in this festive fun for the past several years.  Unfortunately she's unable to do the Blogger Secret Santa this year, so I decided to give it a whirl because I love it! Bare with me as this is my first time and I'm doing it relatively blindly, having only participated once in the past.  Please follow the link below to sign up.  Note, the deadline to sign up is November 20, and I have provided a suggested budget of $30 before shipping.  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 ship!  I don't think I have many followers, so feel free to share the link with other bloggers so they can participate as well! I will do my best to follow peoples wishes, but please note in participa
