CATRA-THON and the Good Old Days…..

  When I was a kid, I listened to the adults talk about the “good old days”.  It was interesting for a while, but became boring quickly to a young ‘un.  I would wander away from the stories being told and  memories being shared, never knowing I was making memories myself every day and that […]

Riding Without Fences, Part Two

  So…..it’s official.  I CAN ride without a fence.  And you know what?  It was fun! Our next trail ride had a little excitement.  I want you to hear it from Amy’s point of view (thank you Amy for letting me use your description).  I’ll set the scene for you…. We are headed back to […]

Riding Without Fences

I am not a trail ride kind of girl. I enjoy the confines of a ring.  I like the feeling that the fence is there to, in a sense, protect me.  Sound silly?  Perhaps.  But when I am in the ring I feel safe and secure. So, when a trail ride was being planned, I […]

For our shopping pleasure, we had vendors […]

Thorncroft 2017 from my point of view….

I really didn’t know what to expect volunteering for Thorncroft.  Sure, I had been to and in horse shows but that consisted of making sure I had the right clothes and a pair of good boots….. Thorncroft starts at CATRA way before the Saturday of the events.  Laura and Amy learn the trail course, Alex […]

Thorncroft 2017

Thorncroft 2017 is now a memory but we will be celebrating the success of our riders all year.  The CATRA riders were wonderful and brought home an impressive array of ribbons!  And we can’t forget the CATRA horses – Nickel, Pacman, Diehler, Kuel, Mik and Prescott, who did a great job.  Thanks also go out […]
