Little Man’s Big Dreams

I remember the first time that I saw Little Man (Winter Noon) move. I don’t remember the exact date, but it was sometime in 2010.

A Champion Over Fences and Down Centerline

0
A friend had encouraged me to give eventing a try, and I knew in order to be competitive, one needed a strong dressage score. I had dabbled in hunter shows and am an avid foxhunter, so the jumping and cross country wasn't an issue—it was starting from scratch with dressage. 

A Life Spent with Saddlebreds

0
My family had purchased the Saddlebred stallion Flight Time Gold. He was magnificent. Platinum mane and tail, so much sheen he shimmered in the sun, a partial blue eye, a blaze, and two high whites in the back. He was like a horse out of a fairy tale.

To Fall in Love with a Giant

0
I still remember walking into the barn and seeing a newly arrived American Shire named Echo Valley Nash in the stall across the aisle from my horse.  I had never seen one in person and at two years old, he was at least 16.2h and 1,500lbs.  He was black as night with a wide blaze that swept over his left eye like a dodo bird.  He had silky white feathers covering all four legs, an undocked tail as thick as the jungle, and feet the size of 7-inch dinner plates. He was absolutely majestic, and I was enamored by him.

Rubeus Hagrid, the Half Giant

2
I decided to name him Rubeus Hagrid after the lovable and generous half giant from the Harry Potter books. After all, it was his mother who was the giantess while his father was a normal size. His story was too similar and he was too hairy to not be a Hagrid.
