|I'm an amateur equestrian with a passion for Iberian horses and tack hoarding tendencies. I live in the Midwest with an amazing husband, a herd of horses, and a pack of dogs. My interests are dressage, photography, and most recently, blogging. I have a self-deprecating sense of humor and the vocabulary of an octogenarian. My life's motto is taken from my favorite book series: Hope strengthens, fear kills. In case it wasn't glaringly obvious, the title of my blog is tongue-in-cheek.
