We’re looking for an ambitious and energetic team player to join us April 1. Our working student interns groom, tack, clean, learn, ride, show and get PAID and HOUSED to do it all! Working student interns grow into our assistant trainers, or leave us for more advanced positions both within and outside of the horse […]
I love coming to the Wellington area every winter, but there are some things about living here, and living in Florida in general, that are … unique. We’ve made a little game of some of the wackier things we’ve seen. First one to 1,000 points wins! One point for each sighting of the following creatures: […]

We have arrived safely in Florida, and even more importantly, we have arrived in 2019, and I can’t even begin to tell you all how glad I am of both. While January 1 may be just another date on the calendar, with no magical properties of any kind, I’ve decided that 2018 was where all […]
I hate December. It’s cold; it’s dark, and it’s time spent twiddling my thumbs waiting to get to Florida. When I’ve had serious upper-level competition horses, December is a bit of let-down time. I take the last two weeks of November and the first few weeks of December to just fluff around, and then the […]

He understands collection beautifully; he takes a half-halt; he is respectful of the leg and is steady in the connection. And he’s also been in my care for six […]
