I’m running on a grand total of about 2 hours sleep, and the dreary weather just screams “naptime”, but nonetheless, I’m pumped and excited to be writing to you from England this morning (or rather, afternoon)!
Here begins a photo catalog of horsey things done in England. First up, seeing War Horse in London
My flight over was fairly uneventful, the only trouble being an exceptionally long customs line (note to self: get UK passport updated- that line was much shorter!) and lugging around goodness knows how many pounds of camera gear.
Hanging out with feral ponies in the New Forest
Though I’m here on business, I do have a few personal adventures to attend to while on British soil. One being the aforementioned Olympia, and the other being a ride through Hyde Park (thanks to Lori for the suggestion!).

Traveling alone can be a bit of a pain, but these horsey activities will make the trip more than memorable, especially since sadly my family is indisposed and unable to meet while I’m here.
Having dinner at the family pub where we met Olympic Gold medalist Showjumper Peter Charles
Since I don’t have a selfie-stick, the blog will likely be saturated next week with crummy iPhone photos and selfies of questionable attractiveness, and hopefully one helmet cam of an ideally sunny day riding through London.
TTFN! Ta ta for now 🙂
I had so much fun going through my archives last week, that I thought I would do a few more posts that include some of my older stuff. I’ve been blessed to have the opportunities to travel quite a bit, and like any good tourist, have documented much of the amazing architecture I have seen along the way. Here’s a sampling of some of that work.
St. Michael’s, Aldershot, England (this is the church I was christened in, among other events in my family’s history!)
Sarrastro’s, London, England
Clifford’s Tower, York, England
Yorkminster Cathedral, York, England
Il Duomo, Milan, Italy
Not really architecture, I just loved these candles!
We’re off to give my siblings college tours! Hope you guys have a great weekend!
Today I decided to reach into my archives for some non-equine and non-canine material. It seems I’ve always been drawn to photographing birds, and here are some of the images I’ve captured over the years.
One of my first photos from Design School… Canadian Goose, circa 2008
Swan at Stourhead Estate, England. Fall 2011
Another Stourhead swan. 2011
Crows on a fenceline. Stonehenge, England. 2013
Have a wonderful weekend!
