Party Like an Equestrian

149392912611184638_4gB3vwZj_cWhen I started my blog, I knew I wanted it to be mostly about Interior Design. However, my passion for riding had to be incorporated. In the “about” section of the introduction I wrote “somehow I will make the connection”. I have to say, it has been easier than I thought.

For the past twenty years that I have been riding, the annual Christmas party was mostly held at the barn. Whether it was in the indoor arena or in the aisles with the horses joining us, I learned to associate the textures and aromas ( I’m being kind) with having a good time.169448004701379009_FPAsI7w6_cThe best thing was it did not matter how elaborate the decorations were or how much money was spent on food.
