The Story So Far ~ One Year of Blogging!

Holy crap! I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this little blog.


A year ago I introduced us and the blog and told you a bit about myself (anthropology, field school). I started talking about our past show season (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) and didn’t finish talking about it until July when I told you about our less than stellar debut at Trillium Championships. I also blogged about last years show season (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).


I’ve done a lot of lesson recaps (fading, half-halt, outside ride, basics, gymnastics, half-seat, sleepy boy, Forward, don’t anticipate, rhythm, dino-socks, crazy town, derby night, lesson, flat, show prep, straightness, lesson, show prep, clinic, coach D, distance, after rhythm, jumper lesson, clover leaf, flat, 2 strides, Tucker’s a jerk, flat, jump, flat, bad lesson, jump, lesson, stretch).

I talked about how I never fall off and then I fell offtwice. I’ve discussed chiropractic appointments (Tuckers, mine, Tuckers, Tuckers) and how the outcome makes me dance like a cracked out elf.


I’ve talked a lot about tack and all the things I need want (adulting, Greenhawk sale, field boots, 5 things I don’t need, things I can’t live without, SUDS, Greenhawk sale, Secret Santa).


Full cart!

I partook in many blog hops (Hand Gallop, Stories from the Saddle, Zen and the Art of Baby Horse ManagementFraidy Cat Eventing, Viva Carlos, Something to Talk About, No Hour Wasted, Viva Carlos, Viva Carlos, The Red Mare, The $900 FB Pony, All In, Fraidy Cat Eventing, Viva Carlos, The Red Mare, All In, Guiness on Tap) and even tried to host one myself.

I let you in on what I’d do if I won the lottery (dream barn, tack room) and spoiler alert foresaw the future (more on that another day).


I shared some of our regular daily routines (bath time, swamp thing, boot camp, lead changes, listen to me, rides, Life of a Hunter, Bromance, Darcy Tucker, random, drunken sailor straight, chub rub, no stirrups, dog house, Tucker, thrush, random, short stirrup horse in the making) and some of my thought processes (negativity, superstitions, perspective, thoughts, 10 things I’ve learned, ramblings, if not now, when?, heart horse).


134 posts, 5,635 views (best day 179 views), 1,513 visitors, 30 followers that I’m aware of (shout out to all the ones that follow in stealth) and 1,155 comments. Thanks everyone for spending a little time in our corner of the internet.  I appreciate all of your support!
