A Look Into the Vaulting World With Mikhail Proctor

Vaulting. Vaulting is described as gymnastics and dance performed in harmony on the back of a moving horse. This is an aspect of the horse world that I do not know much about, but I have always enjoyed watching. I am very excited to share my conversation with Mikhail Proctor, an amazing vaulter.

Owning Your Riding Journey

Happy December all! This is just a quick blog talking about how everyone’s riding journey looks different, and my personal journey of learning to own it. If this is of interest to you, strap in and read on! Throughout my life, I have had the pleasure to meet equestrians of all walks of life and disciplines. I have been able to speak with many of them learning their journeys, careers, and how they got where they were. In looking back at my own journey, I know that I grew up privileged in comparison to many riders, but as a child, I compared myself to others. I saw people that had more than me, and I was constantly wishing for more....
