It wasn’t the greatest day. 5 rails in show jumping with Johnny is a strong reminder of how humbling this sport is, and why you really need to fight if you are going to succeed.

On Sunday I went down to North Atlanta Equestrian with Johnny (aka ‘Simply Priceless’) to do some gallop sets as part of our training for Badminton in a month. While there, I helped my friend Rebecca Bowman with some mustangs and took my new OTTB for a spin. Practical Joker (aka ‘PJ’) is my newContinue reading “Go Johnny Go!”

Very proud of Emit conquering his very first cross country in the Novice Horse division at the Rocking Horse Winter II Horse Trials in Altoona, FL. Emit is a great mustang ambassador, showing people that mustang come in every shape, size, and color. #SaveAHorseRideAMustang

He did get a little confused (fussing a little because he was distracted by the other jumps). Once he got his feet wet, he was then very brave to dropContinue reading “Indiana Chrome’s first Training!”

First helmet cam video of the season! Simply Priceless was so good on cross country at the $100,000 Land Rover Wellington Eventing Showcase. Excellent training for our first Badminton in just a few short months. #GoJohnnyGo
