Heavy Traffic!

A piece I wrote is featured on Mugwump's blog today!  I wrote the piece back in June and to my surprise she posted it today.  I am very flattered that she thought my piece interesting enough to post.  Or maybe I was the last one on the pile.  Either way, I'm very excited!

It's amazing how much my blog traffic has increased today so I thought I'd post a little WELCOME to anyone who's coming over from Mugs and checking out my blog.

If you're interested in more about my early horse days (as described in the "Perspective" post) you can find "Past Horses/Experiences" on the View Posts By Topic section in the sidebar.  But no, there are no videos of that, maybe someday.  There ARE some videos on my YouTube channel and you can find a link to those in the sidebar.

If you want to know more about me or my current mount, the tabs at the top should help out.

If you'd like to read a summary of this blog from beginning to now, you can read the cliffnotes Timeline Summary tab.

Welcome!!!  I hope you found something interesting here today!


  1. Congratulations! It was a really thoughtful, well written piece, I enjoyed it quite a bit.

  2. Awesome post. And so familiar I could think you were writing about my early years, right down to the videos getting recorded over by something worthless lol.

    I think as a kid I saw most rail classes as being more like Simon Says than anything else, so if I did everything when the announcer said, surely I got a prize! And my folks had no idea what they were looking at dad even went off and confronted the judge at one local club show I was at! I'm so horrified thinking back on it now lol.

    But you know, those experiences have given me an interesting perspective. I was grooming for friends at the fair last summer and saw a girl with a pony who reminded me of me as a kid. And instead of sticking my nose in the air or saying she shouldn't be there, my first instinct was to go find where she was stabled and help her braid her horse properly.

    I think all of my experiences have helped me be a better horse person and show person. Thanks for sharing your really great story.
