2015 bringing some exciting new things to MK Equestrian!

Here in Aiken MK Equestrian is keeping plenty busy!  We have had a great first month full of horsey related activities.  LOTS of horse shoppers this year, which is great as we have a wonderful selection of horses for sale.  In the next few days I'll be posting about some exciting new homes for various MKE horses.  

We have also gotten to do quite a bit of cross country schooling and competing even though it's only February!  MKE is lucky to have the help of Hannah Metz and Katie Mays; it truly takes tough, determined, and fiesty ladies to keep up with a schedule like ours!  Last weekend we took the BIG boys to Pine Top and rode over Derek DiGrazia's new Pine Top courses and I am more than ever excited and proud of the horses and students I have.  There was some very good success in ribbons with Camilla Grover-Dodge finishing in 1st and 3rd - a great prep for her first Preliminary outing next weekend!  Puttin on the Ritz, owned by the Klavans family, finished a strong 2nd in his Preliminary which will lead him into his first Intermediate of the year.  I'm also extremely proud to have gotten The Diesel Boy around his first Intermediate of 2015 which seemed almost like an Advanced track!  I had one rider steering issue; other than that he was rock solid.  Bristol Indian jumped a double clear in the BIG SJ of Intermediate and I learned an extremely valuable lesson about xc riding on Sunday... I'm so lucky to have such a smart horse like this one and can't wait for the rest of our xc together.  

www.mkequestrian.com is officially launched and with that my email has been changed to molly@mkequestrian.com
Please make note of this as my old email address will only work for a short while longer.  

Pictures, videos and more NEWS coming soon!

2015 about to kick off at Pine Top Horse Trials!

In just about 36 hours I'll be starting my first event of 2015 with THE DREAM TEAM.  That's right, a few of the best horses a girl could ask to work with, some of the most fabulous girls to attend to these special horses every need, an amazing coach and YES even my husband.

I couldn't be happier with our pre-season preparations. The beginning of January was well spent in the indoor working on some flat work basics and then the last half was here in Aiken getting the horses out and about- getting fit!  We had a great XC school at the amazing GIBBES Farm and today we were put on point at Phillip's southern training facility.

I expect as things go that I'll come out of Pine Top with even a longer list of things that I want to polish and finesse... after all that's what us professional riders do... strive for better!

I promise to fill this blog with lots of pictures and videos in the very near future.  For now I'd like to share a link to a blog I wrote for Eventing Nation.  This is an important time in my life and although this is a HUGE decision I've made, I am feeling great about it.


Thanks for following along with our adventures!
