What a weekend – and it’s only Sunday! After the huge success of the Wellington Eventing Showcase this year, I’m even more hopeful that we’ll start to see similar events pop up in other regions...» Read More!
It’s funny how fast the show season and mud season both just sort of sneak up on you. A solid number of my friends are off at Galway Downs for the season opener. Those of...» Read More!
Let the Wellington Showcase begin!! Personally, I’m just excited to see how that whole “jumping through the VIP tent” thing goes for cross country. I know my horse would completely lose his mind if he...» Read More!
Last week, I finally sat on this little four-year-old Arabian mare at my work, after four months of ground work. Four months sounds like a long time, but when she came into the program where...» Read More!
Being down here in Ocala for the winter is quite a surreal feeling if we’re being honest. To be surrounded by great riders and beautiful horse farms no matter which direction you look — it...» Read More!
Chinch is running wild around #aeta this weekend! Here he is hanging out with Colleen Rutledge and Glenn the Geek of @horseradio fame A photo posted by Eventing Nation (@goeventing) on Jan 31, 2016 at...» Read More!
One of the things I love about horse-stuff is how much of it we can get logo-ed, monogrammed or otherwise personalized. West Coast wonder-woman Liz Hall recently had a birthday and received this totally swanky...» Read More!
I’ve certainly missed the rain, but I haven’t missed the mud. Last winter, the West Coast was dry as a bone. I got complacent and completely forgot the arduous slog it can be out to...» Read More!
Hellloooo flashback Friday! Above is a picture that proves I’ve always been more than a little weird, because who else here can claim to have a photo of oneself swimming in a river with...» Read More!
If there is one thing snow is good for (and I’m cataloguing them now to make myself feel better), it’s photos. You can seriously make things look magical in the snow. Ponies. Sunsets. Dogs running...» Read More!

Ok, so I know this is not necessarily eventing-related, but hear me out. The barn my coach and I are renting stalls from in Ocala this winter is home to a couple of accomplished Mustang...» Read More!
I empathize with everyone who had to shovel driveways and clear snow from roofs this weekend but slightly jealous of the folks going for bareback rides through the drifts. We were spared from knee deep...» Read More!
I have to admit, my favorite thing about this time of year are all of the awards banquets. There’s something very special about coming together to celebrate the accomplishments of the season gone by. Seeing...» Read More!
Despite the weather’s best effort to keep us all home bound this weekend, it’s still a good time to get out and have some fun. I’ve been grinding through a bit of the winter blues...» Read More!
The countdown to Snowmageddon 2016 begins officially today. I went to Whole Foods last night (I know, I know, so basic) and there was LITERALLY no more milk in the store. I mean, really. Why...» Read More!
I’m in Virginia, and if you’re anywhere near me right now, you’ll know that people are FREAKING OUT about the snow storm coming our way tomorrow. Supposedly, we might be receiving two feet of snow,...» Read More!
Here in Maryland the four letter S word has finally made its way into our weather forecasts, with indications of a decent accumulation for this weekend. High temperatures this week will barely break the freezing mark, and...» Read More!
It seemed like some sort of joke when American Pharoah, the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years, was denied the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year award for 2015. He was the runaway favorite...» Read More!

We all know that the big news from yesterday was the three winners of the ginormous ridiculously huge amount of money Powerball, but besides our natural jealousy of those people (think how many ponies you...» Read More!
Eventing Nation is sending well wishes to the feisty Forrest Nymph as she is heading home for some R&R after getting cast in her stall in Florida. Unfortunately, even though she seemed fine after getting...» Read More!
