It’s a new year full of new opportunities! In this vlog, I talk about some of my plans for 2017 including international travel with Simply Priceless (aka Johnny) and the continued development of my talented mustangs, Fledge, Rune, and Hwin.
Johnny’s feeling great after Burghley, and incredibly excited and happy to be back on American soil. As I unpacked some of my goodies from the event, I found something very special. Thanks go to the Simply Priceless Syndicate (Susan Day, Vicki & Steve Sukup, and Kimberly & Larry Loveless) for making it possible to continueContinue reading “Coming Home”
Final jog and show jumping day at the 2016 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials. The pressure was on as Johnny and I prepared for what would turn out to be a 14th place finish: top-ranked American rider, and top-ranked ‘Burghley Rookie.’ What’s next? Johnny will get some time off as I focus on my otherContinue reading “Next Stop: Badminton”
How do you tame a black dragon hours before dressage at the Burghley Horse Trials? A LOT of ground work. On the day of dressage, it took more than an hour to coax the dragon out of Johnny (I knew he was in there), and then to settle him down so that we could performContinue reading “Black Dragon”
Off to the Burghley Horse Trials, and tricking my brain into thinking that it’s no big deal. “It’s not Burghley. It’s ‘Bergley.’ I’ll do Burghley next year” 😉 A course walk with David O’Connor, Phillip Dutton, and Holly Payne. A successful jog. And a late-night ‘flasher.’
Without access to internet, I was unable to upload any vlogs while I was in England competing at Burghley. I have a lot of catching up to do. In this episode, I visit the mysterious rocks of Avebury and make a wish at a wishing tree. Fellow eventer Katherine Coleman tells the story of herContinue reading “Burghley Wishing Tree”
I’ve been in England for a while now, and Johnny is settling in really well. Enjoying my time with fellow eventer Katherine Coleman, her groom Caz, and her dog Buddy. I was recently joined by my husband Timothy and my groom Loreen Kay. We’re having lots of fun at the same time as I focusContinue reading “Bring on Burghley”
Want to see what packing for a competition overseas looks like? After taming the ‘black dragon’ (aka Johnny aka Simply Priceless) at Millbrook, it’s back home where I face a tack explosion and get organized in preparation to leave for the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.
This short vlog is from High Acre Farm in The Plains, Virginia where I trained with Johnny last week before Millbrook and in preparation for Burghley in a few weeks. Support for my trip has been amazing! Thank you to all my fans and supporters for giving generously of what you have in order toContinue reading “Preparing for Burghley”
