Sophie and Little Rock practicing for the parade this weekend🇱🇷

We're up late working on getting ready for the Stuarts Draft Christmas Parade this Saturday!
Please join me, my horses and my students and come and watch us in this year's parade. We're going to look AWESOME and tug on your heart strings❤️🇱🇷
4pm. Stuarts Draft. On Draft Avenue. This Saturday, December 12th!

I'd say Sophie Ogilvie and Mariposa, and Pocahontas and I had a very successful day today!
So proud of you Sophie, Mariposa and Pocahontas!!

Thank you Mad Tack and Supply for my new favorite jump! More pictures to follow soon of the rest of the awesome jumps made by Daniel Martynowski @ Mad Tack!

[10/24/15]   My horses and I are so fortunate to meet nothing but the nicest people every day!
We'd like to send out a very special thank you to the very nice woman who walked over to see us at Afton Mountain Vineyard, and graced us with a very generous monetary gift to be used JUST for carrots for all of my horses! I wish we had exchanged names😕
But please know if you are reading this, Rebel, Cisco, Cheyenne, Pocahontas, Mariposa, Jesse, Little Rock, Montana and I, all thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness and generosity!!!😍

Had so much fun taking this very special grandson of mine Patrick, with me on my trail rides last week while he was visiting! LOVE that all of my grandchildren have inherited my love for horses and riding❤️

[08/26/15]   If you're new to viewing this page, welcome!
I wanted to point out, as you look at all the pictures I've posted from past trail rides and which horses the guests are riding, these are the very same horses you'll see in the horse show pictures.
That's the difference between my horses and my trail riding business and other trail riding businesses. You're actually riding show horses, and there is a difference!
Hope to meet some of you soon and share my beautiful horses with you!

Look at Sophie and Mariposa go! So proud of both of them!!

Yesterday was a gorgeous day for a trail ride to Afton Mountain Vineyard! I really enjoyed getting to know these guests. Happy to know we're neighbors! They only live in NVA😃 Hope to see all of you again real soon🍁🍃🎃

Fun Day at camp last Friday! Morning - Wear and ride in your favorite costume😀
Afternoon - Paint our horses like War Ponies👍

Last day of camp for two of my favorite campers, Harris and Sierra (who also call each other sisters)
But a fun day filled with lasting memories for all

Because slow motion cartwheels are too fun to watch😃

Harris is as good of a jumper as Apollo! or is it the other way around?😛

Sophie! Our Pony Jumper👍

Taylor! Our Thoroughbred Jumper!🐎

One of the benefits of having a Riding Instructor who used to be a Personal Trainer/Boot Camp Instructor, is if we need to strengthen our legs and core for our riding skills, no problem!

Hot, Hot, Hot day at Riding Camp on Monday!
We kept cool and kept our horses cool by riding bareback and riding in the woods most of the day☀️

This was the nicest family ever! So happy I had the chance to meet and take John Craig, Dana Craig and Sarah Craig on a trail ride the other day. A VA TECH family, with Sarah beginning her freshman year, I know I'll see John and Dana when they come down to visit their daughters at TECH! Looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Thank you for the wonderful day you gave me!
