I train 6 days per week usually with the off day doing some ground work + guaranteed stable work. This daily grind is tough on socks, especially boot socks so when a fan recommended (Thanks Sarah F!!!) I check them out I was quite excited
I’ve been privy to enough new product launches, tried and tried again new-to-market fashions and understand the great importance of not only riding top but looking top in the process (this means if you have a brown saddle you better be darn sure you’re sporting a brown girth and bridle!) thus I feel compelled to share a happening new range from the folks at SmartPak dubbed Alexus complete with the hip byline aesthetic, athletic, alexus! Schweet! The Alexus Hybrid Jacket is a nice tailored fit without being too tight and the contrasting black sides are slimming too.

Yes! Yes! Yes! I’m so excited to announce the equibarre fitness DVD has almost arrived and just in time to add to your holiday shopping list! We shot equibarre at the amazing facility in Ashland, Oregon Silver Spring Farm and had a blast doing so. Yes it was shot IN the indoor and my workout partners were a horse and rider! I’m really excited about the DVD going on sale next week

Joel went ahead and took the train down to pick up our tickets for the GP Special at Will Call and we drove down.

As always there is a horse related tie in with this and it does do way beyond that we went over to the Netherlands to visit my dear friend Geoff and to watch the Grand Prix Special in Greenwich for the London 2012 Olympics (more on this to follow). First was our adventurous day trip to France so Joel could see the location of the Battle of Belleau Wood near Chateau Thierry a bit north of Paris, France. Geoff was kind enough to offer to drive us down and back for the day so Joel could view this tribute to service members worldwide.

I have heaps of things to blog about right now and at the top of my list are blogging about my trip to Holland to visit a very dear friend and go to the London Olympics to watch the Grand Prix Special in dressage as well as how dressage is #1 in general BUT I’m writing about two things that have been on my mind this past week; bell boots & Pessoa Training System. I’d borrowed a Pessoa Lunging System for a few weeks and incorporated it into a weekly schedule with Hansel and saw some great results.

I was so lucky to meet the Ingram’s while down training in Wellington this last winter. ONE, they are simply just a wonderful family, fun to be around, honest, nice and oh so welcoming. TWO, they have a super group at their stable full of some great Amateur (Non Pros for your reiners) riders.

While others were scoffing at the, albeit a bit out of this century, designs that Ralph Lauren spun for this years 2012 Summer Olympics in London. I was saying, HEY guys… it looks kinda kewl actually.
