Happy Halloween! Enjoy this clip of the Headless Horseman song from Disney’s Sleepy Hallow!
Admiring Italy based The Good Machinery‘s Strange Planet series of imaginatively hand painted animal figurines – looking at the little treasures simply cheer and brighten my day.
The designs play with shapes and colors including polka dots, neon, golden, striped and my favorite, the black ombré horse with a bright neon pink muzzle… or maybe the pink horse with the golden legs?

It’s time for the Alltech National Horse Show in Lexington, KY! October 30 – November 4, the show offers $600,000 in prize money with a $250,000 Alltech Grand Prix. I so wish I could be there! But I will definitely be tuning into the USEF Network on November 3rd to catch the grand prix.
I am in love with the equestrian decor from Thomaspaul! He started his brand in the 90s with neck wear accessories that soon evolved into a home collection in 2001. His company now covers all aspects of the home. The warm, unique patterns of the collection would look great in any home. I’m definitely saving a spot for them!
It’s still October Adopt A Shelter Dog month! And I’ve just found another really great place to adopt. Muttville is an organization that helps senior dogs. When you think about getting a dog, most people want a puppy. The older dogs are almost always overlooked. Muttville helps senior dogs through rescue, adoption, foster and hospice. I’ve been looking through the available dogs, and they’re so adorable, I just want to adopt them ALL!!! So this month, do what you can to help senior dogs. Donate, adopt, volunteer, or foster through Muttville!
Here is a little behind the scenes video about Muttville:

Quite possibly the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. I love Monty Python and the Holy Grail! The coconuts get me every time!
It’s that time of the year! Some of the world’s top riders travel to Washington, D.C.’s Verizon Center to compete in one of the most prestigious indoor horse shows in the country. And it starts today! If you can’t make it to D.C. this week, then do like me and tune in to the USEF Network on Saturday October 27 for the WIHS Equitation Finals and President’s Cup Grand Prix!
