Horsing Around at the Barn #Horses

Horsing Around at the Barn

By Erin

This week, I thought I’d give a little update on all the horses. The boys are all doing well, especially Chup with his training as a jumper! Come join us at the barn and see how Big, Blaze, Brady, Style and Chup like to ‘Horse Around!’ 😉

Styles

American Style– Aka Styles, is still in rehab and confined to his stall from his surgery back in late January. He no longer has his leg all wrapped up though. He’s doing well, but still has a long way to go. He’s happy, but he sure can be a monster! I’m sure he can’t wait to be able to get out and run and play around like the other boys do again!

Blazing-Horses

Blaze is a sweet boy. He loves hanging out in the turn out and going on short rides with me. 🙂 I think he also likes posing for the camera!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything about the horses. Big, Vinny and Purple are all doing well and happy and silly as ever as you can see here. 😉

In April we took Big to Copper Meadows in Ramona to a clinic and a one day show! He came in 2nd place! 🙂

Cavalia’s Odysseo: Galloping into our Hearts!

Cavalia’s Odysseo: Galloping into our Hearts!

By Erin

Disclosure:received media tickets to attend the VIP tweet night in Burbank. I was not compensated for this post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

D you know anyone who loves or admires the beauty and free-spirit of the horse? If  you are as horse crazy and love horses as much as I do, then you’ll want to go and see anything Cavalia does. Artistic director and creator Normand Latourelle has created another masterpiece with a dreamlike setting that mixes inspiring acrobatics and high-tech theatrical effects. Cavalia’s “Odysseo” is an odyssey to different enchanting lands. It’s like a Disney Movie, but even more magical with all the colors and dancing ponies that prance into your heart. The show opened in Burbank, on  February 27th,  2013 and runs until March 31st, 2013. I was ever so lucky to be invited out to their VIT (Very Important Tweep) Night on March 13th, 2013. You can bet I was beyond ecstatic to find out that after only dreaming of being able to go see this show, it was now becoming a reality, AND I was getting to go as a VIP? A week later, it still only seems like a dream! Lucky for me, I have many pictures (500ish)  from this magical night to show that indeed this most special night DID happen. 😉

Here is a mini version of our night, and what you can expect as a Rendez-Vous VIP with Cavalia!
