Horse Blogs and The Bearable Lightness of Being

Chevelle had a great suggestion. She would like to do more sharing of our Horsaii blogs than just putting them on the Mouthy Monday stories or adding them at the end of a comment.

I'm going to add a page this weekend of Horse Blogs. They don't have to only be about horses, the writer simply has to like them.

Send me the name of your blog ( jhuntington@cowhorseart.com), your blog address and a brief description of what it's about and I'll post it on the page.Tell me if you ride hunter/jumpers, endurance, trail, just around the yard, reined cow horse, whatever. I'll list them in categories and we can visit back and forth to our hearts content.

I'll finish up the lightness series today, but it may be evening before I get to it. The sun is shining and the ponies are calling!

Later.

OK. thanks to Chevelle my real email is now posted.
Razzing welcome and deserved.

Because I don't have enough blogs to waste an entire workday on yet, I only have enough to waste MOST of my workday. Bring on the blogs! Since it sounds like email isn't working...mine is www.panicandthepony.blogspot.com. I ride dressage on a green Arab and am an adult wimp of a rider.

On The Ground,
http://justaplainsam.blogspot.com/

Mostly about day to day life with my horse Lucas, and dealing with my rhumatoid arthritis while trying to ride and show.

It should be fine now...guess I'm supposed to delete stuff more than once every two years....

Bonita Vear said...

I just sent an email and it didn't work ~ not sure why it isn't fixed....

My blog is A Riding Habit

I ride English, I have green four and half
year old TBxAppaloosa {no spots} and we are currently on a somewhat crazy journey to understand each
other ~ with a whole parcel of fun in between!

FredRed said...

Tried to email :(

I'm at Raising Freddy Kreuger fredredblog@gmail.com

I write about my seven year old paint, Freddy, the dozens of other horses I'm working with, and the horses I grew up with. From cutters to jumpers and trail horses, we do a lot. I try to update twice a week.

Promise said...

promisebaby.blogspot.com

I write about my 17 year old Hanoverian cross mare and my dogs -- and usually the trouble they cause that makes me say "It's a good thing you're cute."

I used to compete in hunter/jumper, but since we've been battling lameness for 2+ years now, I just enjoy hopping on whenever she is sound enough, even if it's just to walk for a few minutes.

I'm at www.joycereynoldsward.com--
Peak Amygdala. I talk about writing, horses and skiing. Oh, and a little bit about politics. Have a nice little reining-bred mare and we putz around an arena. And other stuff.

KD said...

I'm a trail rider that loves to horse camp with my horse buddies.

I started my blog ZAMBITO OAKS in 2005 to chronicle the birth of my mare's colt and have continued regularly until 6 months ago when I took a hiatus.

Perhaps emails are getting bounced because mugwump's email is jhuntington@cowhorseart.com ? No dot between the j and huntington?

Memoirs of a Horse Girl

http://memoirsofahorsegirlblog.blogspot.com/

I write about life with Harley, my buckskin quarter horse, and my love of dressage. I also like to reminisce...

Analise said...

Mine is http://adventuresinhorse-dom.blogspot.com and is indeed called "Adventures in Horse-dom"...originally mostly about all of my riding lessons and the rescue I was volunteering at, since I've bought my horse and moved to a new state it's mostly been about the things me and my guy (8 yo drafty gelding) get up to. It's a nice log of our progress, that's for sure. And I ride English (in the arena and out on the trail).

AareneX said...

bouncy bouncy email email! So, here's mine:

www.haikufarm.blogspot.com

Aarene and family, including 2 horses, 2 goats, 11 chickens, 3 dogs and a cat (plus a few humans) on a leetle bitty farm in the far Northwestern Swamplands of the United States. Endurance, dressage, and a fair amount of mucking about with horses.

And poetry. And pirates. And whatever else crosses my line of vision....

mugwump said...

Oops. Good point Chevelle. By hook or by crook I'll get that page going!

Hick because when I lived in town for 13 years, that's how my neighbors saw me and I wore it with pride. Chic because it's the French word for style and I like to rock the overalls and rubber boots.

One husband two teenagers a pug assorted cats and three horses.

I teach western riding lessons and am slowly building up a list of students. I also write fiction which means I get rejection letters because that's how it works. When I'm not blogging about horses, I blog about The Famous - I have a very healthy well adjusted fascination for certain rock stars and actors. Not creepy at all. I don't blog as often as I used to, but I take time for the Mugwump Chronicles!

EvenSong said...

Been riding most of my life, and settled here in central Washington to build my dream farm to retire to. I was breeding and raising one or two Paint babies a year for a while, but can't justify it these days. Thinking about changing the focus to retirement boarders.

Currently bringing along two of my homebred girls, both now 7, and aiming at mountain trail type competitions.

Mugwump's email is working now for y'all to email: jhuntington@cowhorseart.com
I did successfully send an email and got a response.

Since everyone's doing it... :)
The Chevelle Chronicles
www.chevellechronicles.blogspot.com

I write about my life with my now 6 year old horse, Chevelle, training techniques, and horses in my past. I ride western pleasure and my background is in hunters and equitation. I rode Arabians for many years. I now live in Wyoming and I love the wide open spaces. I update the blog at least twice a week.

I can't wait to check out all of your blogs!

I love the "My Little Ponies," title, and I love the Mugwumps horsaii pledge. I pledge to read everyone's blog until spring.

Disclaimer, I'm not the redhorse from Red Horse Farm.

I have a couple horses and a sassy donkey and am making a former padded walking horse become an eventer. We live on our own little horse farm and try to take things day by day at logdogacres.blogspot.com

Liz Stout said...

What a great idea to list everyone! Thanks!!

Name: In Omnia Paratus

Address: liz-stout.blogspot.com

Description: I'm a 20-something who just entered the "real world". I'm trying to make my horse dreams come true while pursuing a career in conservation biology. I've ridden since I was 5, but hadn't owned my first horse until this past year. I've dabbled in everything, riding anything and everything I can, but my heart lies with endurance riding - which I hope to pursue heavily in upcoming years. I currently have a rising 2 year old Arab x TWH that I rescued January 2012 and am finally getting to learn the process of starting a horse from the ground. As the Latin-English translation of my blog suggests, I am "ready for anything"!

Kel said...

Great, just what I need; more excuses not to work at work! :)

Any worker not only can they do just as well among the more if going to be the reward is the fact that big a heap of at least going to be the punishment sufficiently unpleasant. This verify of up to the arrot and stick?approach - was are into going to be the philosophies of the age and is that having said all that include them as found especially in a lot more classic sectors regarding industry. This metaphor relates,do not forget that to learn more about the keep using about rewards and penalties in order for additional details on induce desired behavior. It comes to you both to and from going to be the ancient story that to make a multi functional donkey keep moving,no less than one must decide to put a multi function carrot all over the front having to do with him at least dab him so that you have a stick back and forth from behind.

For centuries,but bear in mind they are actually too very often attention about as going to be the one of the more forces that could motivate it is certainly plausible
