Carriage Event at Black Star Sport Horses

One of my favorite events of the year is the annual Tejas Carriage Association two-day event at Black Star Sport Horses. Black Star has 255 acres of woods and uses them for an epic cross-country carriage event on Sunday. On Saturday carriages compete in dressage and a cones course. I love setting up a picnic and watching…

New Portraits

I recently had new portraits taken for my website by Emily Trupiano, a.k.a. TruPhoto TX. I thought you might like to see a glimpse into my every day life: coffee under the trees, dinner in the courtyard, wine by the fire pit, and sunset with my horses. I swapped out a nook with a worn…

Prince Turns 20!

My beloved horse turns twenty years-old today. Born on May 18, 1997 in Paducah, Kentucky, he must have been the cutest foal with that giant stingray-shaped star on his face! I’ll never forget the day I met Prince. I met Prince when he was four years old. I had been looking for a horse to…

Wendy Turns Ten!

I can’t believe my horse is ten years old today. She was just a yearling when I bought her. Wendy is really so much more than a horse to me. She’s my first life dream to ever come true and a living, breathing reminder of everything I’m working towards. In some ways she was the…

Picnic and Carriages at Black Star Sport Horses

In case you were wondering, yes, this is my dream Saturday. Today my friends Jen and Joseph joined me at Black Star Sport Horses for a picnic while we watched the annual Tejas Carriage Association combined driving event. I absolutely adore carriage driving. After all, what could be a better way to exercise your horse than wearing a…

A Day at Black Star Sport Horses

Twenty minutes east of Dallas on I-30 sits a horse oasis. Black Star Sport Horses has 255 acres of woods, ponds, and ponies. Okay, the horses at Black Star are anything but ponies; they’re some of the top European dressage horses in Texas, but you don’t have to own a horse to enjoy the farm….

Summertime Picnic with the Horses

There are few things in life I love more than picnicking with my horses. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve been drawn to the strength and beauty that horses emanate. I have long loved that I can close my eyes on a horse and suddenly I am transported to another time. Horseback riding for…

Horse Upate

I thought I’d share some recent photos of my two horses, Wendy and Prince. Wendy, my five year-old Friesian, is lucky enough to run around with a herd while I’m at work during the day. She crosses the creek, runs through the woods, and eats grass in the field with her friends. I wish Prince…
