Clay Pots and Loud Singing
Last week I was hurtling toward ride weekend doing my best to get through each day and knowing if I looked too closely at all that was and wasn’t in place in my own strength I might panic and end up in a total crash. As I took care of exactly what was in frontContinue reading “Clay Pots and Loud Singing”
Slow is smooth.
The Old Dominion weekend 2021 did not go as I envisioned after the amazing 50 mile ride from Camp Bethel a month ago. I’m so grateful. It appeared that Khaleesi had finally made her come back and I assumed full speed ahead into some 50 mile rides with the end of the season potentially doingContinue reading “Slow is smooth.”
May 1, 2019 I have struggled to write since my last post; it’s been the longest hiatus since I began the blog. It’s not due to lack of activity or material as much as there have been many seeds coming up all over the place with no finished concepts maturing into a blog that wouldContinue reading “Eighth”
Part 2: What it’s all about
Monday, October 12, 2015 Ride time for the open 25 mile was much later than I’d liked (9:30am) because that puts us riding in the warmest part of the day.

Just as we sat down for a drink and snack an unfamiliar guy pulls over inContinue reading “Part 1: Base camp, volunteering, and saddle fit”
Get it done
Tuesday, September 29, 2015 September has been a tough month to balance. Work has kicked into gear with early fall activities that keep me organizing, teaching, rehearsing (driving all around the area) and communicating at a good clip. I am grateful that Khaleesi is in shape right now and just needs some maintenance riding toContinue reading “Get it done”
Tuesday, June 16, 2015 I’ve been thinking about what I learned from volunteering at the OD ride for a couple of days now. As much as it was hard to be there without a horse watching everyone else doing what I wanted to be doing, it was an invaluable experience and I’m so glad I volunteered.Continue reading “Take Away”
