Adventure Bound


  A warm salty breeze, crashing waves and the glow of a setting sun – I could not imagine a better backdrop to a horseback ride down the beach. We were visiting San Pancho in Nayarit, Mexico.  Although this town is about 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, it is worth the drive for a taste of local culture, food and a beautiful beach.  San Pancho is still frequented by tourists, but those… Read More

  The horse industry is a funny one. It is expansive; from the neighbor down the road with a horse in the backyard to multi-figure horses that compete at the highest levels of the sport. More and more, I have been hearing comments from outside the industry and even those involved in other areas of agriculture about the cost of having a horse. I find myself stuck in between these worlds. While… Read More

“Well, if they run away, we have about 20 minutes to get to higher ground.” We were halfway up an active volcano in Banos, Ecuador, standing in the “canyon,” where pyroclastic flows travel during an eruption. The area was lush and green with puffy white clouds hanging in the moist air; making it easy to forget we were standing on a volcano. The black crumbling earth below our feet, however, was a… Read More

As I mentioned in a previous post, I came up with this great idea to take our horses to the dropzone (skydiving), ride down to the beach and try and entice them into the water. Overall, it was a great experience and made for a fun afternoon, but as promised here is the full video of our adventure.   Check out the full post here.

  Sometimes I come up with crazy ideas and believe it or not, I sometimes find people that even want to go along with them. The place I skydive at is near a beach that we occasionally land on. Once or twice I noticed people with horses riding down to that beach. The logical next step in any reasonable person’s mind is to figure out how I could also get my horse there…. Read More

  It is interesting how goals change over time. As I step back from the show ring, more and more I realize what I have been missing out on from the equestrian industry. A large portion of my 11 years of horse ownership involved competing in the hunter ring at the national level. I would not trade those experiences, but I have to say finding new things to do with my horse is awesome… Read More

Skijoring has been on my list of things to try for a long time. Unfortunately for me, my horse has lived a life of the pampered show horse and tends towards fits of fear when encountered with horse carriages. For this reason I thought skijoring would not go over well. I spent one winter trying to teach her to ground drive in preparation for skijoring, but we never really progressed. I did… Read More

I’ve been neglecting my GroPro for awhile and have not posted a new riding video since my cross country one last year, so I thought I would play around with it in the indoor arena. I have not been jumping as much this summer, so here we are playing around over some smaller fences!

She certainly never made it easy and in many ways she was the wrong type of horse for me. I thought I was a reasonably good rider, but really, I knew little after riding only school horses.  Ever heard the saying “green + green = black and blue, ” well it holds true in our case! I have come off this mare more times than I can count. She was a green… Read More

I recently watched a video of a para-dressage rider who is wheelchair bound but through horses she competes at the highest levels of para-dressage. What stuck with me is the incredible power of the horse. I explained why I skydive, but its time for why I horseback ride. Horses are calming. When I think of peace, I think of listening to horses munching hay as the sun rises on a summer morning…. Read More
