I never expected the past year to unfold in the tumultuous way that it has. Horrible, gut-wrenching events shocked the nation. We befell the deepest collective anxiety and depression my generation as ever seen, we have lost souls too young, and we were not able to say goodbye to beloved ones in person. We also … Continue reading Have yourself a merry little Christmas
As a child I obsessed over the Black Stallion movie. My favorite parts were the sweeping running shots of Alec and the Black on the desert island, lost in the thrill and joy of the gallop. I was utterly in love with the idea of running alongside a horse, nothing to hold them back but … Continue reading Liberty Lesson with Jess Roberts

A few days before Christmas, Carlos came out and took a few photos of me. We dressed up Spot, my friend Megan's trusty steed and he was a good model (and he got paid in treats for sure!). Enjoy! by Carlos Flores Wishing you all a wonderful new year! Sending love and light your way. … Continue reading Holiday Photoshoot!

I hit writer’s block. I ran out of time. I contented myself to watch Netflix after a full day at the … Continue reading Farewell to 2019
Christmas 2015 I LOVE Stocking Stuffers! The smell of balsam pine in the air, warm lights and bright colors around the house, and hung carefully on my coat rack are three stockings: for Carlos, Connie, and Nutmeg. My dad always did MASSIVE stockings. Filled to the brim, overflowing to the floor, and each item individually … Continue reading Stocking Stuffer Ideas!
It’s 5:30pm. You’re about to leave the office. You packed, closed all your emails, and you have plans with your significant other for dinner. Your phone rings. Is your first thought: “Oh crap, I forgot to turn off my phone. I’m going to ignore it”, or do you think “One more call. I can do … Continue reading Filling Your Cup

PC: Carlos Flores I have no idea why I fell head over heels in love with horses but my mom always said the second I saw one I was obsessed. I think my parents were hoping it was a phase because they knew it how hard it would be to afford it. I did not … Continue reading The Horseless Rider- Part Two
There's a stigma in the equestrian community that I have been feeling for some time, as if Horseless riders are 'less’ of an equestrian than those that own horses. That it makes me lower on the totem pole, less important to educate, less worthy of attention or effort to include. The lack of a horse … Continue reading The Horseless Rider – Part One
