Yesterday Tucker and I joined some friends from my farm for the Covered Bridge Trail Association hunter pace, which starts at a farm across the street from where Tucker lives (very convenient!).
On Sunday I trailered Tucker over to Alicia’s for a jumping lesson and he was such a good boy. I had a discussion with a friend recently about cross-training or doing different things with your horse, and we agreed that while you can’t have a top level show horse who also trail horse and also a dressage horse, you can do lots of different types of riding and activities and end up with an all-around awesome horse who is fun to ride no matter what you’re doing

Okay I wanted to say the cutest pictures you’ll ever see, but the internet is so full of pictures of kittens doing adorable things that I didn’t know if I could make that claim. But I feel like there are good odds that these are the cutest pictures you’ll see today.
Super Fan here. It’s my favorite GP rider’s birthday. Figured I better share some of my favorite photos! Winning the Queen’s Cup in Barcelona with Zander last month Winning the HITS Pfizer Million for the second year in a row with Antares F Winning the Devon Grand Prix with Antares F, 2012 (he’s won the Devon GP eight times) On the way to winning team gold at the 2008 Olympics with Sapphire Sapphire’s retirement ceremony And of course… I can never share this photo too many times: “Starstruck at Devon” I’m not the only one who thinks today should be a national holiday, am I

So first things first… quick update on my last post: Montel has found a wonderful home! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the horse world is a strange but truly beautiful place. Just when I had hit a point of desperation and was visiting neighborhood farms to see if they’d take him in exchange for barn help (like I have that kind of time), people started coming forward. Montel in his younger days So many people reached out to help, either through spreading the word or offering him a safe place to land.

So I am resurrecting the blog, but for a couple of very good reasons. Actually, it’s because I need your help with a couple of things. (Isn’t that just like me?
OnTheBit from A Horse and a Half (who also did the fix-a-test with Lucky) was kind enough to video our test during the fix-a-test we did on Sunday, so you all can see how adorable Tucker is looking these days. I loved the Judge, Mindy Elgart. She gave lots of helpful criticism but was extremely nice to all of us.
There comes a time in every equine’s life when he wonders to himself, just how prepared are my humans in the event of an emergency? Would they know what to do
