This fall and winter were very productive for my freelance writing business!
I had the chance to write for one of my favorite horse breed magazines, The Morgan Horse, for their March 2018 trainers issue. The editors were wonderful to work with, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
I’ve also taken on a new pro bono project: writing content for the National Brittany Rescue & Adoption (NBRAN) website. It was one of those rare times when everything came together– there I was, idly surfing the net trying to figure out what type of dog we should [eventually] get, and when I fell in love with the Brittany, I stumbled upon NBRAN. Lo and behold, they needed a writer. Bingo!
I’ve also been busy helping promote an annual horse show here in Minnesota, called F.A.S.H, short for Friends of the American Saddle Horse. This year, it will take place May 10-13 at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Come one, come all! It’s casual. It’s fun. It’s FREE! Find more information about dates/classes/times at www.FASHHorseShow.com.
I’m also still writing for the local newspapers (when I can), and keeping up with my other blog and passion project, Frantic Mama.
My kids are getting bigger every day, and I’m always doing my best to balance my work life and my personal life. As we all know, there’s no magic formula for that, and no one size fits all approach.
Follow along for more fun on Instagram (where I post much more frequently!). Thanks for stopping by. Don’t hesitate to reach out with content requests for your website, blog, or publication.
Beach riding tops virtually every horse lover’s bucket list, right? I finally had the chance to cross that one off recently while visiting Amelia Island, Florida (and I think I’ll go ahead and add it back to the list. I must do it again!).
Interested in taking our lead (hehe)? Contact Debbie at Amelia Island Horseback Riding. Our awesome guide and impromptu photographer was Reva. The horses were well-taken care of and well-matched to our riding experience.
I took part in my first horse show last weekend. It was nerve-wracking, scary, and lots of fun! I rode an adorable Morgan horse named Gemini, trained by the Wick family over at Hardwood Creek Farm in Minnesota.
I was the one riding, of course, so my husband gets the credit for the following photos. He didn’t do half-bad, considering he was also keeping our two little ones in check!
Plus, arenas are notoriously bad for photos– poor lighting, lots of photo bombs, fast-moving, etc.– but I wanted to share them with you anyway. Enjoy!
