In our family, a tradition is whenever we turn 13, we get to choose a trip we would like to go on to celebrate. I have chosen Canada! It is far away, so we are not sure if it can happen or not, but It would be very fun and an inspiring trip for me… Here is why!

Back in 2013, I had a friend online who was very sweet. She was an equestrian like me, and an AMAZING rider. She was fearless, funny, and as sweet as can be. She truly loved the horses, and she was one of the most inspiring girls I had ever known. On October 13th, 2013, at only 16 years old, she passed away from a rare blood disease called HLH. She was on the news and everything. It was a very tragic loss. 🙁

Her parents sometimes invite some girls that Lacey (the girl and there daughter) inspired to Canada, and visit with them. In some cases they even let the girls ride her horse! It is super cool, and I may be one of the lucky girls to go and do that. It would be so amazing to experience part of her life that some girls would die to experience. It really is a big deal. Lacey inspired over 130k people through instagram.


^This is a photo of Lacey jumping her horse Bonkers without hands. 🙂 I love jumping without hands, and by the smile on her face you could tell she loved it too.

So that is the story of the wonderful Lacey, and I really hope I get to go up to Canada for my 13th birthday trip, it would be truly amazing!


Zone 7 Finals!

Zone 7 finals is one of the bigger shows in my area, that takes place around the end of the year (mostly in November). It is 2 weeks long, and it is always really fun!

Last week was the first week, and tomorrow (aka Friday) I am heading out again for the next weekend! Bella was amazing last week, and we had some really good rounds, and did very well out of many riders. The flat classes went really well also, and we got some great ribbons.

Last weekend, I tried out a horse that I may buy. His name is Bravo! He is still a baby and is only 5 years old, so he was a bit hard to steer, but other than that he was amazing! He’s really big too.

So that’s about it! I can’t wait to go back to Houston this weekend for finals. Wish Bella and I luck! :’)

I can’t believe Christmas is SO close! I know we still have Thanksgiving to go, but my mind is already on Christmas!

Christmas is my favorite holiday, and to me, it is the best time of the year. There are cookies, Christmas  carols, lights everywhere you go, and much more. Around Christmas time, everything just feels extra cheerful and happy. I love to go shopping while we are on break, and see all the Christmas trees in the stores. I think it is also really cool that people decorate so many trees on the side of the road. You can drive and see tons of amazing decorations on the many trees.

We put up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, and decorate it with all of our decorations and lights. It is so fun. Then on Christmas Eve, our whole family comes to our house, and we have a fun Christmas dinner together. We eat enchiladas from Maudie’s and some more food, and we bake cookies and decorate them for “Santa”. A fun tradition for us is, we get to open a couple presents from the family before Christmas morning. When everyone leaves, my family and I make some hot chocolate, grab a few cookies, and watch Christmas movies, and go to bed a little later.

It is so fun, and every Christmas morning, I get to go to my barn and spend time with my amazing horsey. Santa likes to leave some things in her stocking too. Last year, he left some yummy treats. ;’)
