The Unfortunate Waredaca Horse Trials

So Wanda and I have been having hiccups at our events lately. It’s frustrating because we started off in the Spring winning everything, and lately we haven’t been able to complete an event without a run-out. This past weekend was pretty busy for us. On Friday I trailered Wanda to Millwood and had an extremely productive jump lesson with Cathy. Saturday morning Christie rode with me to Waredaca to walk my xcountry course, then I competed…

MDHT at Loch Moy

July 10, 2010

Today was the Maryland Horse Trials at Loch Moy I, and Wanda and I ended 8th! I had the opportunity to be accompanied by Cathy Fredrickson, who really helped out a TON during the event. It’s so odd to actually travel to an event with your trainer and have them help you the entire time! I’m so used to a few encouraging words and then not seeing them again until…


DRPC Spring Horse Trials

May 2, 2010

Wanda and I had the opportunity to compete in the Novice Horse division at the Difficult Run Pony Club horse trials for the first time as a team. I’ve been there a MILLION times with previous horses, since Frying Pan Park is my ‘home turf’ for all pony club activities, but this was a first for Wanda 🙂 Saturday I fulfilled my volunteer duties as a scribe for Helen Brettell,…


Home from Aiken – Bittersweet

As you have probably noticed from Facebook/Twitter updates, Wanda and I have returned from Aiken to my parents’ home in Fairfax Station, VA. There is a point in time when being a working student starts to wear on you both mentally and physically, and I think ending things was the best option. PD and I are going to continue working together in PA, as I am planning to drive up…

A Very Turkey Vacation

November 27, 2009

A TON has gone on in the past two months! Firstly, I would like to share the good news that I was asked by Phillip and Evie to join them when Phillip moves the competition horses down south to Aiken, South Carolina mid-January to late March. It is a pretty huge deal to have them ask me to continue working with them, so I’ve got to step it up to…


Plantation Bareback Puissance?!

Last day of Plantation Horse Trials and a crazy one it was! Phillip gave us the opportunity to take a break from work and watch the CIC*** at 11:30, so we rode some of our assigned horses and headed over. When we got there, they were finishing up the CIC**, so I got to see Skyeler go (she was in my Pony Club years ago!) and she ended 3rd with…

Oh what a day!

I haven’t updated in a while, mostly because it has just been crazy getting settled here at True Prospect. Things with me are going so much better after a bit of a rocky start getting used to the craziness that is here! My horse Sully is doing loads better after some lessons with Ryan Wood.. his jumping was a little difficult but is starting to come along quite well. In…
