if you are in L.A. and you haven't been to London Calling at the Getty Museum yet, you will have lots of time. this gem by Lucian Freud is just one of many reasons to go!

vaulting

we have had the most wonderful trainer/instructor at our barn this summer. Sabrina came to us last summer from Austria (via a ranch she'd been working at in Costa Rica). she had taken two years off to travel and work with horses around the world. she enjoyed our program so much, she decided to end her tour back in Chatsworth.

in culmination of her time, she presented the girls with vaulting workshops (one for tweens and another for teens). they had a blast. their fearlessness and comfort around horses never ceases to amaze me.

i missed E's workshop with prior commitments. but after hearing about it, i made sure to be present for the second day of K's workshop.

are you watching stranger things? oh my. nostalgia overload here. everything. we just binged on the last few of the first season tonight. almost makes me want to find used copies of my old stephen king and v.c. andrews collections, and my well-worn copy of amityville horror. (i devoured horror fiction for a few years in the early 80s.) almost.

three cheers for the horse camp...

horse camp

the fifth summer at "The Horse Camp"
one a tween camper and CIT
the other a Jr. Counselor
strengthening strong friendships
and building new ones
mad horse skills

E said to me the other day, as camp was winding up, "Mom, they say boys are fierce, but horse girls are fiercer."
