I live in the Virginia hunt country and my horses live here with me. It’s a lot of work keeping them here but I wouldn’t have it any other way. “Madison” is my newest addition which is a big deal for me as I keep my horses forever. My others are Sega who is 24 and retired and Alfie who is 17 and starting to slow down, so Madda is the youngster at only 7.
Hey there I’m Heather, the muse behind The Timid Rider, formerly Bridle & Bone. I am a certified equine and canine sports massage therapist in Monmouth County, New Jersey. While I’m confident at work and write about holistic wellness for horses and dogs, I am unsure of myself in the saddle.
Eli and I have been partners for about five years now, and we are venturing into the hunter ring, which is new for me but he seems to love it. I have been obsessed with horses for as long as I can remember and have been riding since I was 9.
Hi! I’m Terisé Cole, the blogger behind Breeches and Boat Shoes—an equestrian lifestyle blog that follows my adventures in, you guessed it, breeches and boat shoes—and a full-time editor in the equine media and publishing industry in Massachusetts. The star of my blog is my Oldenburg gelding, Southern Axcent, who I purchased in August of 2013 after leaving my beloved first pony at home when I went off to college.
The pleasure driving shows display beautiful carriages, ring classes, obstacle classes, and pleasure drives. I especially enjoy the gorgeous hats worn by the lady drivers. Each competitor is required to dress with driving aprons, hats, gloves and whip in hand. It is fun to put together modern day outfits/hats for shows and each season you can completely change your look or tweak your outfit as you evolve.
