Behind the scenes: Packing the tack trailer

Behind the scenes: Packing the tack trailer

The smaller, locally traveling trailer. Ever wondered how vendors at shows transplant what seems like their whole store to a show? Me either, until I became personally involved in what is a very complex process! The tack store where I’m employed has two mobile units: […]

Show season is ramping up here, and I’m headed to a show three out of four weekends in April…but not as a competitor! I’ll be riding a Training level test with Gina at a schooling show on April 18, but the other weekends I’ll be […]

Wedding Wednesday: Hat

Wedding Wednesday: Hat

The wedding is somehow five weeks away. Johnny pointed this out to me last night, and I broke out into a fit of hysterical laughter. April is absolutely jammed with horse and work related events, and I’ve been so focused on those things that I haven’t given any thought to the wedding. Well, other than celebrating the joy that is my hat.
Selfies in a large hat are hard.
I ordered my hat a few weeks ago from Kathi at Hat-A-Tude, who was an absolute pleasure to work with. She sent me a sample of the hat’s material so I could make sure it matched my dress and the turnaround time on the hat was quick. 
As soon as the hat came in, I promptly stuck it on my head and paraded around the house for the rest of the night, proclaiming that I planned to wear it every day for the rest of my life.
While I haven’t exactly gone that far, I am super excited about it! In fact, this is one of the only things I’ve been super excited about. (The other thing is desserts.) 

I’ve also be happy to hear from various family members and friends that they’ve been shopping for hats and are looking forward to decorating them and wearing them for the wedding. I’m thrilled so many people are truly embracing the Kentucky Derby party aspect of this thing!

TOABH: Metamorphosis

Beka at The Owls Approve has a great question: If you could change something (or things) about your horse, what would you? Looking pretty normal here. LOOK OF EAGLES IS ME Moe: I like to joke that Moe looks as if he’s assembled from spare parts. He […]

Friday Five

It’s almost the weekend, y’all! Here in Oklahoma, it’s going to rain, which is totally lame, because that means I’ll be dressaging this weekend. Ugh. I mean, hooray for leg yields! Here’s what’s on my radar: ONE Handwriting font creator How cool is this?! This free […]
