In this 21st Equestrian Author Spotlight, I talk with fellow equine author and American Horse Publications member Hope Ellis-Ashburn. Of course, we discuss the best topics on earth — writing, books and horses! You'll love to learn about the inspiration for the cover of her book because she still goes back to the old barn sometimes just to touch the stone walls and stay connected to it. Happy reading!
Seventy majestic horses, stars of the theatrical production Cavalia Odysseo, have officially taken up residence at their new home in Arizona to star in this equestrian extravaganza under the gigantic White Big Top in Scottsdale beginning February 21, with matinee and evening shows scheduled through March 18. I was lucky enough to attend TWO special Cavalia media sneak peeks. In the first recap, I shared footage of the horses arriving and walking the red carpet, liberty horse training demonstrations, and a tour of the stable. In this second recap, I'm sharing a video sneak peek of the performance featuring 70 horses, 50 riders, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, stilt walkers and musicians.
Can you hear my spurs jingling? I've been invited to attend TWO special media previews of Cavalia Odysseo in Scottsdale, Arizona. In this first recap, I've captured footage of the horses arriving and walking the red carpet, 'Liberty' horse training demonstrations, and a tour of the stable. In the second recap, I'll be sharing a sneak peek of the performance featuring 70 horses, 50 riders, acrobats, aerialists, dancers, stilt walkers and musicians. This is an equestrian show nothing short of spectacular!

I've been having a blast horsing around with the equestrian community from #HorseBloggers. They have really fun challenges for horse bloggers to get involved in. This month's challenge is about photography and the power of using a hashtag to promote blog posts. The challenge asks us to choose one day in February and take five photos from that day to reflect a typical day in our life using the hashtag #5photos1day. I decided what better day than Valentine's Day to complete the challenge. Here are my five photos from one day highlighting things I love.
It's not always easy to love an equestrian (or an author for that matter), but my horse hubby does an amazing job, so rather than buy him the T-shirt below for Valentine's Day, I'm celebrating him with a blog post this month instead!
Looking for a horse book to fall in love with? Look no further! Here's twenty spur jingling equine authors to choose from. I'm celebrating the second ten authors featured in my Equestrian Author Spotlight series with a recap post.
