This past weekend SmartPaker Susan and I packed our bags and headed out west to beautiful Redmond, Oregon to participate in SmartPak’s third Clinton Anderson Walkabout Tour as a sponsor for 2013. Since we have never had an opportunity to…
Over the St. Patty’s Day weekend, my good friend Abby & I got to adventure through the rolling hills of Los Angeles, CA. The beautiful four hour trail ride covered over five miles of trails through Griffith Park. The 5000…
For most people when they think of summer, they think of vacation. However, for most of us riders (at least if you’re anything like me), the thing we love most about summer is riding!

“Now this is a story all about how
This pony’s life turned upside down
And I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there
I’ll tell you how I became the host of two Olympic affairs…”
As a non-rider (or extremely novice rider—you take your pick), I’m excited to finally have a story of my own to share on the SmartPak blog. My husband and I just got back from a week and a half vacation to Montana. We traveled there for two different weddings that were happening within a week of each other.
