The Maryland Equestrian

A Blog by Laurie Berglie

The Red Prince Mare

I feel like I’m always apologizing for my absences on here – sorry friends! It’s been a busy summer, and it has continued into the fall. All is well here, but with work, the farm, and my animals, I haven’t had a lot of time to blog. Also – I’ve been riding more...

Artist Tim Olden

I came across equestrian artist, Tim Olden, on Instagram, where everything wonderful seems to reside. Right now Tim is perfecting his equestrian art in the watercolor medium, but he is hoping to move on to acrylic soon. Below you will find his Q&A as well as quite...

The Polohouse is For Sale

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know that I’m a fan of Alison Sherman’s blog, The Polohouse, and etsy shop of the same name. You can also find her on Instagram @polohousestyle where she posts items for sale in her shop and other equestrian...

Book Review: The Mare

When 11 year old Velveteen “Velvet” Vargas joins the Fresh Air Fund, all she expects is a few weeks away from her Brooklyn home in the upstate New York countryside. What she doesn’t expect is the beginning of a new life and a new passion. Mary Gaitskill’s The Mare...

Wellesley Equestrian

“Home of the High-End Horse Show Products” I recently came across Wellesley Equestrian on Instagram (@wellesley_equestrian) and have fallen in love with all of their products. They offer equestrian gifts, ribbon displays, home décor items, and personalized brushes and...

Travel + Paul & Lydia

I came across Paul & Lydia, an equestrian-inspired handbag and accessory brand, quite some time ago. I am the happy owner of multiple of their products and could not be more pleased with them. If you follow me on Instagram (@marylandequestrian), then you know that...

Book Review: Kentucky Homes

I love a good coffee table book – who doesn’t? And I especially love ones about horses, home décor and design, and my beloved Kentucky. That makes Pieter Estersohn’s, Kentucky: Historic Houses and Horse Farms of Bluegrass Country, an instant hit. I received this book...

Book Review: A Portion for Foxes

I’m way behind with this review as I finished this one almost a year ago – yikes! A Portion for Foxes, by Jane McIlvaine McClary, was published in 1972, so there is definitely an ages-old feel to it, but that shouldn’t stop you for giving this one a chance. I learned...

Book Review: The Fortune Hunter

Earlier this fall I finished Daisy Goodwin’s The Fortune Hunter, and enjoyed it. It takes place in the nineteenth century English countryside among royalty, foxhunters, and the well-to-do. If you were a fan of “Downton Abbey,” be sure to pick this one up! I would...

Book Review: Portrait of a Rider

I’d been looking for Vicky Moon’s coffee table book, The Private Passion of Jackie Kennedy Onasis: Portrait of a Rider, for quite some time. It was always too expensive, but I was recently able to find one relatively cheap on ebay. (Others are now, finally, similarly...

Book Review: Finding Daylight

I may be a 30-something, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy some excellent young adult literature because, let’s face it, we’re all still young at heart, right? Over the Labor Day weekend, I jumped into Mara Dabrishus’ horseracing novel, Finding Daylight, and...

Book Review: The Essential Fergus

If you’re a horse person, then you’re familiar with Fergus, Jean Abernethy’s cartoon horse who embodies the “everyman’s horse” we’ve all known and loved. Fergus is silly, imperfect, and unpredictable, but he’s also adorable, charming, and a wonderful friend. The...

Book Review: Horses & Homes

I love a good coffee table book, and Horses & Homes by Jenifer Jordan is just that. It was a very quick and easy read and provided some interesting insights to decorating your favorite indoor and outdoor spaces. I believe Jenifer took the photos herself, and they...

Valentine Misty

Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy 13th Birthday to my Misty!! My wildest child is 13 years old today – a teenager! I can’t believe I’ve had my silly girl since she was 4. How time flies when you’re having fun! Also, if you’ve been following this blog for a while, then...

Personal Pony Update

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about my babies – sorry! Everyone is doing well, mostly, so I’m very thankful for that! Takoma Star We’ll start with the eldest in the family. My 35 year old love is doing so well. She has Cushing’s, but for the first year in quite...

What’s New

I haven’t posted recently about my horse-kids, so here’s an update! Takoma Star You may recall my mentioning earlier this spring that Takoma had lost a lot of weight during the winter. It was just brutal for the old guys. But, finally, thankfully, she has started to...

Kicking On

Still Here

Friends – I’m still here! I’m so sorry for my lack of posts – I did not mean to go MIA! I’ve just finished up a very busy two week stretch where I’ve been riding, writing, and traveling. Summer is supposed to be a relaxing time, but that hasn’t been the case so far,...

Atlanta Hall

If you read Horse & Style Magazine’s Mar/Apr issue, you will remember my ‘Horse & Style: Home’ feature, Atlanta Hall. The Monkton, Maryland, farm is home to the Voss family (relatives of the great equestrian sporting artist, Franklin Voss,) and many...
