These Are A Few of My Favorite

Oooooooh I got an award!  Thanks to Sand at for the award!!  If you haven't checked out her blog before, you definitely should.  She writes great, detailed posts about her horse (who is adorable) and their journey.  And she just got a trailer so I'm sure this spring we'll be seeing some awesome traveling photos!!

Liebster means “dearest” in German, and the award is intended to help up-and-coming blogs get the attention they deserve. Here are the rules:

1. Copy and paste the award on our blog.
2. Link back to the blogger who gave you the award
3. Pick your five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.
4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs!

I like lists and following rules.  It's too bad there aren't more rules about what to blog about.  A giant blog list that you just follow items 1-50 and that's your topic.  Creativity?  What creativity?  Imma list maker!!  And actually, it's much easier for some of us to get creative if we have some limitations set up.  Otherwise we end up WAY too avante garde and our creativity resembles bad performance art involving toilets.  But enough about art and toilets, let's give out some Leibster awards!!!
The trials and tribulations of owning a young, thoroughbred.  TBA's posts are honest and funny and often full of great photos.  

Muddy K is an amazing writer.  Prepare to cry and to laugh and to be thoroughly moved by her stories of her horses and her connections with them.  

New blog by someone with a new horse!  How could this not be awesome?  I can't wait to watch these two progress from groundwork to riding to dressage!

Women and horses.  Horses and women.  This blog is for all of us re-riders out there or first time riders who do not have rubber bones and nerves of steel. 

A great training blog chronicling the adventure of Oliver and his owner, Steph.  Well written with lots of information that you can apply to your own riding!

There were so many others that I wanted to link to!!  My blog list is full of great blogs and I want to give every single one of them an award!!  So if you're not on my list, it doesn't mean you're not in my top five, I was just trying to follow the rules......

And on the pony front, nothing yet.  Barn has power today, but sent an email saying the parking lot was an ice rink.  I'm a bad ice driver and not much of an ice skater either, so I think I will give it another day to melt.


  1. Thanks for the kind words (*detailed* was a kind way of putting it ; ) )! I just wanted to say that I LOVE the new header!! Tessa looks stellar!

  2. Thanks so much about the great words and the award. Makes me so happy lol.
    I also love your new page! your blog looks amazing!! (not that it didnt before)

  3. Thanks for the award! Hopefully you'll get back to work with the pony soon, and I also really like the new layout :)

  4. Congratulations on your award and thank you for mine!! :-)
