One view I’m sick of.

My body just can’t keep it together this year, it seems. I’m back in a hospital- this is my third night here. This is, thankfully, completely unrelated to the surgery I had last month- but unfortunately may result in another surgery. Tuesday evening I started feeling pretty sick, and I thought I was food poisoning-…

One day

Today was short and sweet, and a lovely way to end the season. The only class we had today was the hunter derby. Now I realize I’ve been talking about the derby on here and really haven’t explained it. Really it’s just a big hunter course, this one had 15 jumps set between 2’6 and…

First time for everything

Well today was interesting. It started off with scrubbing stains out of my horses ear, and thoroughly upsetting him because clearly it was breakfast time- not face washing time. At least we know he slept well. After wandering the show grounds aimlessly for the better part of 7am- 11am trying to stay warm, we got…

Electrolytes and Insanity

My days have been spent between work and organizing school stuff- and my evenings riding, coaching, a little gym time, and more riding….

Just in time

I’ve broken my record for length between posts, I think. Which must mean my life is finally getting back on track (insanely busy)! It’s been just over a month now since “the surgery”, and I’m finally almost back to normal. I’m done dressing changes, and although there is still some healing needing to be done-…

Diamond- 60 years

  It was my gorgeous grandparents 60th Anniversary last weekend, and so we celebrated this weekend with friends and family. I could not have been more blessed with the family I have, and am so inspired by my grandparents. They are two amazing people and not one day goes by where I’m not grateful for…
