Gettin’ Busy

This crazy life has been especially crazy this year. We ManeGirls have been conspicuously absent. We have had so many changes and challenges, and we know that our troubles pale in comparison to many others. We wanted to be more available to our followers… we wanted to be working to grow our community… but it…

(Happy) new year, new (stronger) me.

Hi friends! Welcome to the new DECADE. Twenty-twenty. All three of us have experienced important and transformative life changes through the past year, and I think we’re all ready to ring in this new era excited for the best things in our lives to become even better. In my little world, I want to make…

Change is good, Donkey!

Well internet family, it’s been a hot minute since we have posted anything on here, and 2019 has been quite the year for all of us! While I can’t tell the story for everyone, I can say (one of my favorite quotes) “Change is good, Donkey!”Shrek And changes there have been! The biggest one being…

Be a goal getter

New Year, who dis? J/k but seriously here we are at the beginning of a new year and I’m sure there are some things we want to accomplish over the next 12 months.   It’s been proven that putting your goals both long and short term down on paper increase the likelihood of accomplishment and we…

Clinic Recap – Alex Grayton

A couple weekends ago, Riki & Heather had the opportunity to ride in a clinic with Alex Grayton. Alex is a successful trainer hailing from Calgary AB, who has learned from some of the absolute legends of this sport, and has honed a thoughtful, structured training method based in fundamentals as a result. We were both very excited to participate in the clinic! Read below to see what we thought of the clinic.

I Just… I’m Sorry…

I write a lot of emails at work. Like… a lot. And lately, I find myself always writing the following: “I just wanted to….” and I am starting to delete that four-letter-word. I am not “just”. I am important, my time is important, and I need to stop apologizing for taking up space. Can anyone…

Alternative Training

So, the other day Apes suggested a podcast, and now I’m obsessed. I keep hearing little snippets that make me happy, or validated, or encouraged, etc. One thing I just heard is that “I believe for every situation there is an alternative.” In my ever reflective mind, I got to thinking about something I heard last night.

Family Matters

Everyone’s family looks a little different. Mine happens to consist mostly of four-legged animals, or as I like to call them, my kids. For the longest time, I thought I would get married, have 2.5 kids and live happily ever. I also thought I would have my own Equestrian Centre and have gone to the Olympics by the time I was twenty-five. As of today, I’m 1 out of 5, so it’s obvious that sometimes things don’t work out quite the way you think they might.

Welcome to Hell…

…or as we call it, NO STIRRUPS NOVEMBER. *queue dramatic music* We all hear about NSN, but it really should be thought of as more than just a fun hashtag.
Read more to find out how we’re working on our stirrup game this winter!


Hey babes. Is it just me, or is it winter all of a sudden? Now, we all know that simply being able to spend part of our lives with horses means we’re extraordinarily privileged, but nonetheless some of us are luckier than others. Of course, by this I mean some of us lucky ducks get…

Horse Shaming/Loving

When I read the No Shame in Our Game: Horse Loving Signs post from The Plaid Horse a while back, I was inspired. OK, I may have ugly cried just a little.

Get in Loser, We’re Going Shopping (E. 7)

Ah, September. I think it’s that “back-to-school” vibe that always leaves us feeling like it’s a new year, and time to turn over a new leaf. We’ve tried to be more conservative in our spending, but that always leaves us wanting more.

On Sundays We Wear White

For someone who has been riding for thirty years and competing on and off for most of those years, you might be surprised to know that I had yet to compete in the jumper ring in white breeches.
