Happy Weekend!

(photo by Pascal Le Segretain via Zimbio)

The equestrian world is abuzz with the sales of horses like Dutch dressage phenomenon Totilas and eventing powerhouse La Biostethique Sam. Not to mention some of our favorite riders duking it out in Holland for Boekelo, France for Pau**** (November 4-7), and Fair Hill.  I’ll be road-tripping this weekend (as has become the norm) but this time to see my impossibly cute 9-month old niece, Gillian, and to take her to music class.  How cute is that?!  See photo below since I can’t help myself. What are you up to?

Happy Weekend!

My goodness my gracious. I took so much time to be at the World Equestrian Games I’m afraid I’ve had to hole up at my work computer for the past week.  Where’s the fun in that?  But, believe it or not, now I’m in Orgeon for the weekend.  The cool air and deep green trees, one might think, would make me crave hiking through snow-capped mountains and across meadows full of wild flowers.  But me, oh no, I think about how nice my sweet Ellie would look in a navy blue wool cooler with silver trim and how cuddly warm she would be given the crisp air.  Sort of like the Swedish showjumper above.  The Swedes have style down pat-from every angle.  What would it make you think of?  Wherever you are and whatever the weather I hope you have a perfectly lovely weekend!

How to handle no WEG USA medal? Denial, anger, bargaining, depression.

Some of the loveliest WEG photos I’ve seen.

Daydreaming of eventing.  It’s all about the heart.

I dream of vaulting.

And some WEG posts you may have missed with the flurry of eventing:

Happy Weekend!

The world of eventing is watching with bated breath as the 2010 World Equstrian Games unfold.  So much has been going on I’m worried that you might be missing all the good stuff.  Here are some highlights from the week as we head into cross-country tomorrow.

Happy Weekend!

My room has exploded with clothes, shoes, jackets, and hats as I pack for the 2010 World Equestrian Games. Will you be watching the opening ceremonies this weekend? I’ll be darting around picking up critical supplies like dresses, bon-bons, and camera batteries.  See you soon whether it’s in Kentucky or on Three Days Three Ways!
