Christmas at Carousel Farm

Christmas is a magical time at Carousel Farm,LLC.  We don’t like to be away from the farm at Christmas.  I like to be home with my horses, family and friends.  We were offered an opportunity to ride in the Rose bowl parade, but we would have had to be on the road during Christmas.  Every Christmas, we get an amazing …

New Props for WEG

I choreographed a new routine for the World Equestrian Games.  We made new jumps for this routine.  Why is it that everything always takes much longer than you think it is going to take to complete.  The jumps turned out great, but it took some time to build them.  We had to make the frames, sew the vinyl covers and …

New Bike – YEAH!

I cross train for my riding. Let me explain. It is much easier for my horses to do their job when they are fit. We do hills with them to keep them fit. It is easier for me to be a better rider if I am fit. Yes, I get pretty fit riding, but riding alone isn’t enough. A couple …

And Then There were Seven Cats……..That Is!

When we were in Sterling, we did a lot of trail riding. My dad and I headed out one day and found two stray cats. They were really sweet, so we took them back to the farm with us. The next day we were showing my mom where we found them. One jumped from the tree onto her shoulder. She …

Trick Riding and Hippodrome Riding on Puddles (video)

It was so cool. We have been working Puddles in an old trick saddle of Tommies. I have a few poses down……a couple different fenders. These are typically done at a full out gallop. I will have to be careful, because it is critical to hang on. I have only one hand to hang on with. But I was able …
