Friday Four

Life is really busy, and unfortunately I haven't been able to photograph or write reviews on anything I owe you guys - or even begin to fix some of the old posts. We'll get there, I promise.

Cute puppy is the reason I have no time to blog

In the mean time, I figured I'd try to share a few things, both horsey and non, which are of (my) interest this week:

1. Horse Nation's Leslie Wylie got to hunt with British royalty and the whole saga makes my heart happy. Definitely worth a read!

2. I finally discovered the facebook group "English Tack Trader" and it's a problem. I did get a nice pair of Kerrits Sit Tight breeches for 50-some bucks, though, so...

3. I made this amazing bread last weekend and while I have an ugly, annoying burn on the back of my hand from the oven, it was totally worth it. It didn't rise as well as it could have, but still made delicious toast as promised.

4.  This song has been my jam for the past few weeks, riding wise, relationship wise and life wise. We've had an exciting few weeks with Atlas home (he is cute, though, right?!) and we have a few more busy weeks... and then it's show season... so I'm going to be busy forever. Enjoy the song.

Have a great weekend, folks!

Sleeping puppy picture for you!

Warning: Construction Zone


It's been a while. I've been staring at this blog, that I've been pouring my experience and my preferences and my favorite things into for the past few years, and... I've been missing this blog.

This blog began as a way to help new horse owners - like my close barn friend, Jen, who was coming back into horses after years away from the hobby/sport/addiction and had a billion, zillion questions. And I wanted to help, so I offered my advice. And in writing that advice down, I realized that I could help other people, too.

And I do like helping other people.

You'll notice a new tag on all of the previous posts - ALL of those posts need updates. Be it photos, or editing, or general review, I will be combing through the past posts over the next few months to get them updated and reader friendly. In the mean time, I'm going to do my best to generate some new, useful content and try to share the love on products, retailers and horse care topics. What I won't be doing, still, is writing about my riding and my horses. There is another blog, and another time for those posts - and honestly, they're probably kind of boring these days. I just can't help but want to share what I love and what works for me with my readers, and hopefully I can help the people out there who don't have an Overly Helpful Barn Friend or have a child in lessons and are discovering a sport where there isn't a handy Sports Authority nearby to outfit said child.

TL:DR - don't mind the mess, I've got some major cleaning up to do. However, it is with great joy that I look forward to more posts and more fun!
