One week, one month, and three month goals
I’m trying to follow advice I read somewhere – I think maybe
from Dodon Farm ? Maybe the rider fitness book ? – and set some goals for my

If you can't be kind, be quiet
This plaque
of this hangs in my barn manager’s house.  We've all heard it before.

Stop yelling at me!
Murray and I had a great dressage lesson Friday, which is encouraging because our first horse trials are in a little less than two weeks now.  This close to a show (and definitely not the week of a show) I don't like to tackle big new concepts that we're go...

Pressure Proof Your Riding with Daniel Stewart
I'm not a seasoned show Jedi like my trainer, so pretty much whenever I am about to enter the jumper arena my stomach drops, or rises to my throat, or does flip flops.... or whatever it feels like doing that day.  I've gotten a lot better, in part because I...
