Nostalgia

I spend most of my time these days either sitting in a boat or behind a desk, dreaming about the horses I've had to leave behind. It wasn't always that way, though... Here are some photos of my former, more badass equestrian life:

Awesome stuff! I will most likely NEVER compete at I, so to see your pics is SO cool:) Good luck moving back up the eventing ranks with Ky!

Total badassery lady! Love the pictures with Dually, he seems like such a great partner! Can't wait to see what you do with Ky.

Thanks guys! Dually was truly an amazing friend and partner. I was so blessed to have him in my life and get to share so many amazing memories with him. And I'm happy I still get to see him every day!

Lovely photos. Love your facial expressions - you look so determined!

It is all total badassery! That photo of you, Kiki and Rogo in the rain seriously belongs in Vogue. It is stunning! I hope that is huge and and on some wall in your home. Has the photographer entered it in any competitions? If not she should.

Katherine Erickson said...

Aww thank you, you're too sweet! I do have it blown up nice and big in my room, and it always makes me smile :) I don't know what the photographer has done with it, but it definitely makes me very happy!
