Meg_at_ Banned from Photographing at Old Salem Horse Show

Meg_at_ Banned from Photographing at Old Salem Horse Show

The equestrian Instagram world is a bit abuzz right now with a topic that is very interesting to me. A popular instagram account Meg_at_ (formerly Meg_at_wef) has been prohibited from doing any photography at the Old Salem horse show. Meg has a little under 10,000 instagram followers, and posts photo journalistic style images from popular hunter/jumper shows. I follow her, and enjoy her work a lot.   You can read the full account of the situation on her blog (I suggest you do,…

Between the Classes

Between the Classes

Late blog post today because I guess with a dead cell phone and no dogs to wake me up… I needed to catch up on sleep.  A lot of sleep.  Over 12 hours of sleep – whoops!    So anyway, last weekend at Pin Oak more than one person commented to me about how the junior riders looked like they weren’t having any fun.  Pairing that with a conversation with a friend who told me about a horrible show of…

A Few of My Favorite Things

A Few of My Favorite Things

Partially because my brain is really tired and the weather is not being optimistic for riding this week and partially because I’m in the mood for an easy post… but today I felt sharing some of my favorite things. Naturally, my favorite things make me happy… and I could use a break from complaining about the weather. Watching YouTube videos explaining how to make shockingly detailed polymer clay food.  I have yet to actually try and make any food though….

31 Photos Prior to 31

31 Photos Prior to 31

After doing my 30 before 30, I decided a year long birthday challenge was something fun to add to my yearly blog goals. However, I didn’t want to do another horse bucket list this year. Therefore, I asked readers to help me come up with photography ideas that they would like to see on the blog. It was fun reading everyone’s suggestions! I took all of them to heart, and added some of my own as well. Some were modified…

Without WEF

Without WEF

For the first time in four years, I won’t be traveling to watch the Winter Equestrian Festival this year. I’m a little sad about it. It was always a good time visiting one of my closest friends. Even above that, there’s nothing in the world like WEF. When they describe it as horsey disneyland… they aren’t joking! I often hear that people found my blog through the WEF posts, and a small, silly part of me thinks I may be…

How to Use Professional Horse Show Proofs on Social Media

How to Use Professional Horse Show Proofs on Social Media

Rant alert – one of my biggest pet peeves is to see people willy nilly posting professional show proofs on Instagram.  Yes, they’re of your horse who’s adorable and amazing.  Yes, there is almost always a way to save the picture from the photographer’s website.  No, that doesn’t make it okay to use. I realized a while ago, that many people just don’t know that this isn’t okay.  While the world of photography and social media has a lot of…

30th Birthday Safari Fun Time

30th Birthday Safari Fun Time

For the grand event of my 30th birthday, I was faced with a day off work with my husband and absolutely no idea of what to do. The problem with having a big birthday so close to Christmas is that no one is usually around. In face, we’re typically in a plane or car trying to make a celebration out of playing the “Alphabet Game” as the road rolls by. This year though, I made the request to not be…

Travel Tuesday – New York City

Travel Tuesday – New York City

Once upon a time I used to travel a lot and lug my giant camera everywhere.  Now I am poor with a travel money eating pony.  Ah, the choices we make. Soon I will travel again, but lately I’ve just been missing it.  Combine that with the fact that I don’t often take a look back at the millions of photos I take, and I present to you “Travel Tuesday”. I didn’t actually get to NYC until my early 20’s….

San Francisco

San Francisco

We just got back from a birthday trip for my husband in San Francisco. Even though he unfortunately got sick on his actual birthday, we had a great time. Neither of us had been to San Francisco before (I’ve never even been to California!) and we had a great time walking around the unique city. Since this was obviously several days without Simon or anything hunter/jumper, I thought I’d find horsey things around the city to share with y’all when…
