Blogger Gift Exchange

Tracy of Fly On Over came up with an amazing idea of the blogger holiday gift exchange, and I was very happy to participate! I hope this becomes an ongoing tradition. It sure beats the heck out of awkward white elephant exchanges at work.

Tracy and her horse Miles do hunters in beautiful Ohio. Her blog is always upbeat, inspiring, and easy to read - even though she's been doing it for less than a year! Go check out and follow her blog if you haven't already.

Thank you so much to Dragon of I Trot On who sent me beautiful custom note cards! Not only is the design lovely and refined, but the card-stock has perfect thickness and the envelopes seal with sticker-peel. I've already started using them.

Dragon and her lovely Appy/Belgian Draft cross mare Sydney do dressage out in Michigan. It looks beautiful but cold! Dragon and I seem to have quite a number of things in common, with the exception that we're on opposite sides of the country and she has mastered the art of inserting gifs into her posts (there must be some secret to it that I haven't figured out yet). Please check out her blog here!

My blogger gift recipient is Hilary of Equestrian at Hart. Her horse Houston is a Belgian Warmblood and they do eventing together. She's only been blogging for about 6 months but (Correction: she's been on blogger platform for 6 months, but has been blogging for longer. Thanks L!). She's a great writer and I really enjoy her blog. Please join me in wishing Houston a speedy recovery following his recent leg trauma. I really like the gifts I got her - UPS guaranteed delivery before Christmas so hopefully she gets it soon!


  1. Hillary has actually been blogging for over a year, just she was on wordpress and moved over to Blogspot.

    1. Yeah... And I kind of started fresh this summer and accidently reverted all of my posts to drafts.

  2. Ooh, those cards look super nice!

  3. I can't wait to see my gift! Woohoo. I won't be home from California until Sunday but I'm so excited. Yay for presents!!! :) and thanks for the well wishes. Hue gets a check up Thursday :)

  4. Love the cards!! What a great present!

    It's so fun to partake in this exchange, horse people shopping for horse people- awesome!!!!

  5. What a great gift, I will have to participate next year (this year I barely got family done lol).

  6. This gift exchange is a great thing. Next year I hope to participate too.

  7. Those are beautiful! Thank you so much for your kind words about my blog -- it's been so great to meet everyone and I'm really enjoying learning about so many equestrians across the country!
