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 curiosities. She also posts photos of […]


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, (but […]

In honor of spending two days at one of my most favorite places – Pimlico, below is Red Riders, a piece by one of my new favorite equestrian artists, Tyler Robertson. You can find him […]

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 tack accessories. I am now the lucky owner of a personalized show brush. I have my […]


For those of you who don’t know, my beloved Pimlico is in danger of being shuttered forever. The venue is in need of some major renovations, and its owner (The Stronarch Group), Baltimore City, and the state of Maryland aren’t exactly sure what to do about it just yet, (although studies are being conducted). I’m […]

Pegasus World Cup

Last weekend I journeyed south to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for the very first Pegasus World Cup, which was held at the gorgeous Gulfstream Park. It was a wonderful experience, and I’m so happy I was there to witness California Chrome’s last race, as well as see the magnificent Arrogate! The weather in South Florida this […]

I wrote an article, “Holiday Entertaining – Equestrian Style,” featuring some of my favorite equestrian companies. First up is L.V. Harkness with their gorgeous holiday table settings and […]

Jackie Kennedy’s Wexford

So my obsession with Jackie Kennedy, the equestrian, continues. If you have a cool $6 million lying around, you could purchase Wexford, the home Jackie had built in Middleburg, Virginia, in 1963. During JFK’s presidency, the Kennedys rented a large farm in Middleburg called Glen Ora, and Jackie fell in love with the area as […]

Happy Friday – Pony Edition

I hope you all had wonderful weeks and are gearing up for even better weekends! My weekend is, thankfully, going to be pretty low-key. I’m hoping for some time in the saddle, some yard sale-ing, and hanging out with friends/neighbors. Also, housecleaning, as usual! I decorated for fall a few weeks ago, but I think […]

Monkton Farm For Sale

Hello and Happy Friday! As you all know, I’m obsessed with looking at horse farms for sale, and I can’t stop drooling over this one that’s located about 15 minutes up the street in Monkton. It’s a favorite within the local horse community because of those barns!! And the grass is always perfectly cut. This […]

Pony & Style Magazine

As most of you know by now, I write for Horse & Style Magazine, a job I absolutely love! With it, I get to marry together two of my most favorite things: horses and writing. Recently, Horse & Style published its first one-off magazine, Horse & Style Weddings. It was a smashing success!! Since then, […]

Horse Country Saddlery

Earlier this year, I had a friend send me a snapchat of some awesome equestrian home décor. I wrote back immediately, and the exchange looked like this: Me: Where are you? Friend: Horse Country in Warrenton Me: Huh, never heard of it. Friend: What?! YOU of ALL people have never heard of it? Yikes! So […]

Farm in Middleburg

I’m obsessed with real estate – especially farms for sale in the surrounding areas. I’m always on Zillow or checking out what’s happening in my hood, and not because I’m interested in moving (never again!), but simply because I’m nosey. I also find that looking at fancy farms is a great way to get […]

Hay, Henry

Hay, Henry is an online equestrian boutique specializing in the “one of a kind for the horsey set, the pony set, and the admirer of the horse, the sport, and a frequent blue ribbon.” I recently came across this shoppe when I realized that Hay, Henry was linked to Pony Parcel, the monthly subscription box. […]

Lani the Legend

If you’ve been following the Triple Crown campaign, then you’ve heard of Lani, the gorgeous grey with a mind of his own! He was born in Kentucky, but trains in Japan where he is a star. Lani is my spirit animal, and I wish I could be more like him. If Lani doesn’t want to […]

Happy Kentucky Derby Weekend!

It’s one of the best weekends of the year – it’s Kentucky Derby weekend! It is pouring here, as it has been all week, but I think things have cleared up nicely in Louisville. Unfortunately, due to a bathroom renovation from hell, I had to cancel my Derby Party. I’m so bummed about it because […]


How adorable (and accurate) is this picture? I posted this on Instagram recently, and it received a ton of response. When I was a kid, I wore my poor rocking horse out – I won the Triple Crown on it. Lol! Enjoy this picture and enjoy your weekend! +9

Derby Party

I’m thinking of hosting a Kentucky Derby Party at my house this year. I have been on Pinterest and Etsy and Amazon, and there are SO many cute ideas! But since this is my first time having one, I would love some help! Have you ever had a Derby Party before? Email me your thoughts […]


I found this graphic somewhere on Facebook, I believe, and it cracks me up every time I read it! I’m home from my vacation and settling back in. I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday! +27   

Review: Ralph Lauren’s The Polo Bar

**This is the article that appeared in Horse & Style’s October/November issue. It is currently posted online as well.** If you stroll along Fifth Avenue and East 55th Street in vibrant Midtown Manhattan, you will be greeted by a large window depicting three colorful polo players in the midst of a rousing match. It is […]

Writing for Horse & Style Magazine

You all may remember this post where I announced I was a part-time online contributor for Horse & Style Magazine. A few weeks ago, I became a part-time print contributor, and I am so excited! My first article was published last fall – it was a review of Ralph Lauren’s restaurant, The Polo Bar, which […]

The Best Thing to Happen to 2015

American Pharoah Gives Us More It’s incredibly difficult to put exactly into words what American Pharoah has done for me and many other horseracing fans alike. I was born in 1982, which means that I had never, in my lifetime, witnessed a Triple Crown winner. I witnessed, multiple times, Triple Crown attempts, the most gut-wrenching, […]
