My brain is almost 100% on the year end show, and because you guys are my captive readers I’m going to drag you down the crazy train with me. Most of my showing has been exclusively at local one day shows and schooling shows, and last year’s CTHJA year end show was my first “away from home” weekend show where I actually sat on my horse and rode him around a ring.  Success! This year the year end show is…

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Expand Your Inner Princess

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Expand Your Inner Princess

Well kids, it’s been a fun ride.  We’ve had 10 weeks of hunter princessness.  10 weeks!  That’s like… more than a gestation period for a human baby if it were 9 weeks instead of 9 months!  Okay, really bad analogy.  This has been fun to host, but I’m going to step down as hunter blog hop queen. For our last post, I want y’all to have a lot of fun with it. What would you do/change if you had no…

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Favorite H/J Exercise

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Favorite H/J Exercise

I’m in the mood to train, train, train!  Probably because I haven’t been able to ride due to vacation + the rain + more vacation on the horizon.  To get my training fix, I’d love to hear from all of you lovely hunter/jumper ladies what your favorite exercise is to school at home! I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the queen of formal exercises.  My rides are a mix of working on me (aka Simon goes into…

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Why Do You Love Showing?

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Why Do You Love Showing?

I haven’t been purposely keeping a secret, but I don’t think I’ve exactly told y’all that we’re showing again tomorrow.  Eep!  I’ve been a little distracted by real life stuff (puppy, upcoming vacation, work) and not 100% gung ho with training so we’ll see how it goes… but yeah.  Tomorrow is the last one day show of the year for us. Which brings me to this week’s blog hop question, why do you love showing?  That’s a pretty broad question,…

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – An Annoying H/J Trend

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – An Annoying H/J Trend

This confession may shock you, because in my normal life I’m kind of like a raccoon.  Anything small and sparkly I pretty much get googly eyed over and need it – now. That being said, I hate bling in the hunters. If I ever do the jumpers that shit is going to be on like donkey kong, but in the hunters?  No. What, you say?  “Sparkle in the hunters, but that’s illegal!” It is, but people sneak it in.  This probably isn’t a…

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Your Dream Horse Shows

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Your Dream Horse Shows

We all have certain horse shows that we admire and wish we could compete at.  Some of them seem more attainable than others, and this week for the Hunter Princess Blog Hop I’m asking what shows would you want to do if you had a nice enough horse, all the vacation time you needed and a big budget for traveling and coaching fees. For me, there are two “bucket list” shows that I would love love love to show at one…

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – A Princess Stereotype You Break

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – A Princess Stereotype You Break

I use the term “Hunter princess” pretty tongue in cheek, because a lot of people in the horse world don’t.  Sometimes us hunter gals are associated as the Barbies of the riding world, and that stereotype isn’t usually earned or even fair.  Of course… there are exceptions – aka someone who used to ride at my local show circuit with a hole in her riding glove so her giant engagement ring could stick out… true story. In reality though, a…

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Your Ideal Show Outfit

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – Your Ideal Show Outfit

No matter what discipline you show in, we all have a “if money were no object” wish list for our attire.  It’s stupid that show clothes are so expensive… but they’re so pretty.  Today for the blog hop – pick a fantasy show outfit if we didn’t have that thing called a budget (Eventers – you should pick one for the show jumping phase 🙂 ). From head to toe, I’d start with a black on black GPA Speed Air helmet….

Hunter Princess Blog Hop – A Circuit Horse You’d Love to Own

It’s time for another addition of the Hunter Princess blog hop for hunter/jumper enthusiasts all around! Today’s topic is a little more generic, and if you’re an admirer of a fancy show horse you may want to participate even if you don’t prance around in field boots! What’s a horse showing on the AA Circuit that you wish you could own? Is all of them an acceptable answer? Okay, so maybe that’s a cop out but it’s hard for me…
