Just keep swimming...

Share it Please
You ever have those weeks, you feel like you are barely treading water? Usually I have a very Doryesque view of life. I mean as long as I am right side up I've had one victory for that day...

But lately I have felt more like Nemo.

Most of my struggles come from the 4 legged animal with the same name. For the past 6 months i have been completely blessed to care for my friend Emily's horse Nemo. Not only did I get a free pony, exactly in my budget, Nemo is a champion from the AQHA World, Congress, and all around badass.

However Nemo is headed back to Charlie and Jason's tomorrow.. And I am on the struggle bus to figure out what to do next.

I have decided to run in another pageant, which begins in January. While I am excited and determined to make the most of this experience, I still seem to be in a bit of a funk. Career wise things could not be better, however I feel like I have hit a riding rut. Though I've never been one who let buckles define me; it sure is hard to not be able to join my friends in the show pen every weekend like I used to.

Blame it on the fact that my corgi is with my parents (mom said she wants rid of him like yesterday) but I have not had a lot to smile about this past week. The up side is next week I will have dead leg muscles from my lazy ponies and have to chase after my corgi again. Funny how the things you take for granted mean the most.

Love Ya,



  1. Not having equestrian goals is always particularly difficult for me... I just don't have the same "pep in my step" as when I'm working toward a horse show. But things will pick up soon!

  2. And you'll have a lunch date with ME!

  3. What contest are you doing next? How exciting! :)

    Just keep swimming!
