2019 Equestrian Blogger Gift Exchange

For the fourth year in a row, I participated in the Equestrian Blogger Gift Exchange, which Tracy so kindly hosts (and has for seven years)!  I love choosing gifts for a fellow blogger, trying to find just the right thing to match their likes and interests.  And it is definitely fun to come home from work to a surprise package of horsey things for me!


This year, I received my gift quite early!  Thank you so much Eventing Saddlebred Style for the two surprises this past week!  She must have been checking out my Pinterest board I indicated I have, as these are both from my "want" category haha.

Plus, this is a new-to-me blog, so as soon as I finish this entry, I plan to tag along as a follower.  I like adding to my reading list, even though I have been terrible at commenting lately.


The cute little fox mug just makes me laugh.  I definitely cannot bring it to the middle school where I teach hahahaha, but I have already used it here at home a few times!

And the teal lead rope is aw…

About Me

I have been a horse crazy little girl for most of my life.  I began my equine career in 1985 when I was six years old. My earliest recollections of horses are from visiting my great-grandfather's Standardbred farm. 

I began riding with Joy Spencer of Joydale Morgan Farm, which is where my first horse Sparky was born.  I took jumping lessons for a year with Chelise Storace of Cressbrook Stable when she was located in Straham, NH and then went on to ride in college at the University of New Hampshire with Janet Briggs from 1997 - 2001.  I took summer dressage lessons in college on Lusitano stallions with Vitor Silva of Sons of the Wind when he was located in Deerfield, NH.  

I have been lucky enough to ride in clinics with Steuart Pittman, Linda Zang, Lendon Gray, Heather Blitz, Chris Lombard, Gwyneth McPherson, and Jennifer Wilson-Horr. I took dressage lessons with Judy Thibeau of Little Moon Farm for years with Dreamy.  Most recently, I have been riding dressage with Beth Brainerd of Hidden Brook Farm and jumping with Babette Lenna Gonyea of B-Eventing.

I live on my own little farm with my husband and two children!  I am a schoolteacher in real life, which gives me the opportunity to enjoy the summers with my horses and kiddos!  Drop me an email anytime at cloverledgefarm@gmail.com!  :-)
