Amy Lupek of Riding to Impress designated February as “No Stirrups Month.”   As of yesterday, only one person has fallen off.  I think that is such a great idea.  Good luck to all of Amy’s students!

Riding To Impress: Humor

The following comes from a gal I met at the Justamere Equestrian Centre horse show series.  You can find out more about Amy and her farm, Riding To Impress at www.ridingtoimpress.com
by: Amy Lupek

. You have personally taste-tested your horse’s treats

. Your idea of an “evening out” is a moonlit trail ride

. You have a picture of your horse in your purse/wallet

. You know your vet’s phone number by heart

. You shed hay and horse hair when getting undressed for the night

. You could probably scrape a flake of hay out of your dryer’s lint-trap

. You only leave home to go to work or the barn

. Collectively, your riding lessons cost more than your college tuition

. After barn chores, you go to work “to rest”

Banquet season is in full swing!  On Friday, my husband and I attended the Wigs 4 Kids dinner and left our 15 month-old Henry with a bonafide babysitter for the first time.  I left early and raced home to get Henry only to find him having the time of his life with the babysitter and the other one-year-old in her care.   What could be cuter than two one-year-olds in footie pajamas?

On Saturday, my husband stayed home with the baby and Mom kept me company at the ASHAM banquet.     The ASHAM people are great folks and I got to see Jodi Higdon of Executive Farms for the first time since high school, when we were in the same 4-H club.   Now, she has two little kids that are the most patient children I’ve ever met.    I got a little carried away at the silent auction, though!   Above, you can see the gorgeous centerpiece I picked up.

If you are an ASHAM member or supporter, please check out the ASHAM merchandise I’ve created here.  For an order form, you can send a request to bauer.dana@gmail.com  The t-shirts are $7.98, sweats are $12.50 and hoodies are $15.  Plus shipping.
