    Valentines Gifts for the Equestrian

    I love the idea of deferring some of the holiday gifting to Valentine’s Day.  There is a point of diminishing returns on Christmas morning.  Especially if you have young kids in the house, you stay pretty busy, helping them open, appreciate and get working all of their new toys… And, let’s face it, the whole […]

  • Winter Getaway

    Winter Getaway

    I love the idea of a winter grownup getaway in early Feb, when its at its coldest and bleakest here and things have slowed to a dull roar.  Maybe I should institute an annual Valentine’s trip we give each other?  Wondering if anyone has suggestions for great warm Feb trips with a direct flight from […]

    Country Chic January Essentials

    The snow is falling outside and while, by day, we go a thousand sporty directions… hockey and basketball in the am, the barn for me mid-afternoon and the ski hill for everyone else, I really love reconvening in front of the fire at night….

When headed to WEF (Winter Equestrian Festival): in […]

If its worth doing, its worth doing well.  This is a guiding principal for me and sums up the Trump Invitational Grand Prix as well.  And, […]

  • Equestrian Stocking Stuffers

    Equestrian Stocking Stuffers

    In our household, the grownups usually just get a stocking.  And yes, sometimes a stocking can pack a punch.  You know the saying, some of best things come in little boxes.  Although, I am not much of a jewelry person.  So, when I’ve been good, my stocking sometimes includes an envelope, with tickets and itinerary […]

  • Sophisticated Equestrian

    Sophisticated Equestrian

    My muse is not a person.  It is the sophisticated equestrian lifestyle and those that inhabit it.  My inspiration tackboard (in addition to Pinterest which I love) is filled with outakes from the multi-dimensional, well-travelled and highly discriminating equestrian lifestyles that populate the AA show world.  Those outakes provide context and literal form to my designs…the idea […]
