Eric Church, a Pony Club Reunion, and “War Horse”

October 28, 2012

Busy weekend!  A few weeks ago I had bought tickets to see Eric Church in concert for Nathan’s birthday.  He was coming to town, and Nathan kept talking about how he wanted to get tickets, but he shouldn’t, but he wanted to, but he couldn’t.  So, I did it for him.  We had the BEST time, and I would absolutely recommend a concert of his to friends!!  Justin Moore and…

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,…


10 days till Aiken!

There are 10 days until the official move to Aiken! Emma’s been crazy trying to get all the horses clipped and all the stuff together to take down with us. I’m actually heading home to northern VA this weekend (Friday to Sunday) to attend an HA Rating retreat at Millwood. This is totally unrelated to TPF, but the knowledge I gain from this weekend should definitely help my work with…
