Wentworth Hunter Pace - June 6, 2021

After Margaret and I had such a fun time at the fall hunter pace, we opted to go again this spring! This time, while I rode Rejoice again, Margaret rode her horse Jester and had a friend ride Ladyhawke. All Kennebec Morgans!! Jester and Rejoice have the same dam and Jester and Lady share the same sire. Unfortunately instead of a lovely late spring day, we had one of the first intensely hot and humid days of the year. It was definitely a bummer, but the ride was mostly in the shade of the woods and we had a great time!  most of the fences were 3' coops but we found a small log and this hay to jump haha Until we didn't. 😑 We brought along a third friend who rode Margaret's older mare, Ladyhawke. She's a good rider but hasn't known Ladyhawke for very long and didn't realize how much of a cranky boss mare she could be at times. She kicked Jester right in the front leg just about halfway through the ride, and while the cut itself ended up not being a big deal in the

Day 27 - You know you're an equestrian when…

You know you're an equestrian when... (#withfunhashtags and a gif edition haha)

5.  You can get totally swept down the rabbit hole that is Smartpak supplements online (or whatever else equine related online) and do entirely too much research and clicking around about diet, nutrition, and supplements.  Every so often (though not recently), I get it into my head my horse needs XYZ supplement or what-have-you.  #whyyesihave27tabsopeninmybrowser

This is nothing.  That's only 14 tabs.
4.  You have a tube of Banamine in your purse.  And when it falls out onto the Dunks' counter, the cashier's horrified look just makes you snort laugh.  #askmehowIknow #thismayhaveoccuredmorethanonce

Lately, the Banamine has emigrated to the catch all thing next to my purse.  Yes, I took this photo just for this post haha.  
3.  You consistently and automatically use the terms off fore/hind and near fore/hind to describe the tires on your truck.  #mymechanicthinksimaweirdo

2. Your barn broom wears out once a year.  You've never needed to replace your house floor broom.  #truestory
Photographic evidence that I had to go back to 2009 on my Facebook to find haha!  Old barn broom (right), new barn broom (left).  This pic could be taken every year.
1.  You catch yourself analyzing the gait of every animal you come into contact with.  And you admit to yourself that one of your barn kitties has a really decent medium trot and lovely uphill canter that your horses will never probably have.  #catswhododressage


  1. Ha!! I can picture the look on the person's face when the large tube of banamine drops onto the counter

    1. It was seriously the funniest thing ever because she was like WTAF is that thing? Hahahaha! The second time it happened the person (different Dunkin Donuts) actually asked "What is THAT?!?"

  2. love your list you are so much more creative than me :)

    1. Aw thank you! At first I was like, yeah, this post is gonna suck. And then I just started thinking of all the ridiculous stuff I do and I was like, welp, that was easy LOL!

  3. omg i'm always assessing the quality of movement of dogs getting walked in my city neighborhood. and... am always surprised by how many LAME little itsy bitsy teacup dogs there are. i think they just get stepped on and nobody ever treats them to heal correctly bc they're so little and get around just fine three legged i guess.... lol?

  4. hehehe I love it! My shorthairs would be very fancy dressage horses too with their jaunty trots. At least you didn't have something legit scary in your purse, like needles or something. I also end up with 4,000 open tabs and do more research for my animals than I ever do on things for myself or for work. Ooops. I just got lost down the magnesium rabbit hole and ended up sneakily buying supplements when my husband gave me permission to buy my own christmas presents ;)

    1. Yeah, totally glad it was not IV banamine with a needle syringe because OMG the locals would think I was shooting drugs!! NOT good esp for a school teacher LMAO!

      Even my students say something about the number of tabs I will have open. I'm like, hey, don't judge! LOL

      And hahaha I think that's a great Christmas present! I bought myself a browband and a few other horsey things and told my husband he could wrap them if he'd like LOL!!

  5. Hahah love this! I am a multitab lover as well

    1. Haha thank you! At first I was like, yeah this post is going to be boring. Then I just started thinking about all the silly things that have happened or I do because I am a horse person and sadly it came easily LOL!
