Welcome to the family, Loki!   (pc Meg Norton)



So basically. I deleted my other accounts, because they were acting up. (expect for my AyTypikal account) and now this is becoming less of just my photography, i’m actually gonna start following people and re-posting stuff. I hope y’all are ok with that :*


The US Equestrian Federation`s “invisible” conspiracy against up and coming riders who lack financial backing——(and I doubt they`ve even analyzed what they are doing)

There`s this conviction that THE way to create good riders is by sending them abroad to compete, to the tune of about 15-20,000 per horse, round trip. (and that`s just for the horse)

But who do they send? The riders with the best horses.

And how did those riders GET those best horses? Usually by being sponsored already.

SO—-The riders who GET USEF backing are the riders who already HAVE backing, which leaves the potentially top riders who lack backing even FURTHER in a hole, and it`s a hole created by THEIR OWN FEDERATION.

It`s the classic, “The rich get richer” syndrome.

If they used that money to send teams to shows like Dressage at Devon, for example, or to good US jumper shows, or to upgrade USA cross country courses, they could serve a much broader constituency.

But here`s the thing——If you say something enough times, and say it with sincerity and conviction, it tends to become true, at least in your mind, even if it isn`t true in reality. This is the current mantra:

"We need European exposure to create better riders," as if riding was like fencing, toe to toe competition. But it isn`t. It`s against the dressage test, against the course, and we have those right here at home.

But don`t tell “them” that. They think you don`t have a clue.

This is Loki! I’ve got him on trial this week.  He has been fantastic (for a very green 6 year old), and if the vetting goes well, he gets to stay! P.s. dat tail.  Photo credits go to my main girl, Meg Norton <3

Cloud Empress – “Empress”

Empress is a 5 year old, dapple grey filly who arrived at After the Races in March of 2014 after retiring from racing in February.  Empress, while beautiful and wonderfully put together and incredibly sweet, was a very slow race horse! She ran 15 times but never quite broke her maiden (or even came close, really).
On the farm, Empress has proven to be very sweet, very easy to handle, and a real doll to work with.  She is turned out with geldings and mares with no problems.
Under saddle, we have been working her w/t/c and she has also been free jumped and started on trails. She absolutely loves trails and her flatwork is coming along well, but she could use some refreshing as she’s had a little time off from ring work lately.
Empress is available for adoption currently for $1,000.
Located in Cochranville, PA.
