Lets take this blog to the next level

If you have a photo of crappy show riding, know of a jerkwad trainer or judge, or someone in the show world that is an abusive piece of shit then send the info to me. This blog is not anti-showing, it's anti-abuse. So there is no truth to the claims from the TWH, ASB, western pleasure and dressage zombies that I'm trying to shut showing down. Instead I'm trying to make showing more honest and to get abusive practices out of the showring! Email me at shameinthehorseshowring@gmail.com



I have a request for my readers: If you have successfully rehabbed a show horse, or gotten a rescue and taken it on to a show career then let me know, I'd love to feature you here!

Family Matters

My mother has been in a rather serious car wreck and my sister and I have been taking turns at the hospital and trying to handle things at home. As soon as I get a good free moment I'll finish up my next blog post and get it up.

All the best and I hope everything turns out ok.
Family does matter - and It's nice to see someone out there who cares.
Looking forward to your next post.

Geez, I was hoping nothing bad had happened, and you were just neglecting us because you were busy!

You family will be in my thoughts...Take care.

So sorry to hear that! I hope she gets well soon! And don't forget to rest! You won't help anyone out if you run yourself into the ground.

Oh my! I pray all is well with your Mom! Please extend my prayers and hopes of a speedy recovery to Tuffy and your mom!

Second on making sure you take care of yourself (Tuffy too!). I know you two have a lot on your plate...My sister wound up in the hospital after caring for our Mom because she didn't take care of herself... So don't let that happen to either of you!

Anne said...

You and your family are in my thoughts. Best wishes for your Mom's speedy and complete recovery!
