“My journey with horses started when I was 9 years old. My grandma gave me a lesson for Christmas and as they say, the rest is history! I started in the hunter/jumper ring and then transitioned into the eventing world…”

Kick your equestrian style up a notch (or what not to wear for a lesson)

Sara-F-for-Kick-Your-Style

Like most equestrians, I put my horse’s needs first. It’s only the best for my OTTB, Carpe Diem (Diem for short).

Meanwhile, I’m three months overdue for a hair cut, and I’m crossing my fingers that I can get another few hundred miles out of my running sneakers…

Winter Look Book 2011: Fashion over Function? No Way!

Look_9_Headband-thumb

Who says you can’t marry these two things together? – especially when the temperature drops. Growing up in rural Vermont there was no option to wear non-functional clothing in the winter. You wanna be warm while feeding the chickens and throwing hay?
