The Wilder Journey

The Wilder Journey

You're probably wondering where in the world I've been.  MIA, missing in action, really.  Between keeping my clients beautiful + happy at the salon, helping my mom run the Southern Detour Boutique, starting a jewelry/leather goods business with my husband {SD Originals}, and braving the SC moody winter, things have been a blur.  I hope [...]

The Wild Journey {Part 5}

For starters, I'm still contemplating how I'm going to move to Kentucky.  Y'ALL, every single time we visit this beautiful state I fall in love all over again.  The Wild Journey was coming to an end and the mustangs went from being undomesticated to gentled, willing, and beautiful in 112 days.  If you missed the [...]

Life at the Barn

Life at the Barn

Southern Spring

Southern Spring

Spring is in full bloom here in the South.  The days are getting warmer + longer, the horses are shedding like crazy, the thunderstorms are more often, and the mosquitoes are getting larger {ugh}.  However, I love this time of year.  There are wildflowers everywhere, my sister and I planted a teeny garden, and horse [...]

Gaffney, I love ya

Gaffney, I love ya

Horse show season has kicked off to a great start!  We took on the EXCA State Championship in Gaffney, SC recently.  Last year was the first time we had been to this beautiful town.  It never disappoints with it's rolling hills and friendly folks.  Green River Farms was hosting an Extreme Cowboy Association Race.  We love these [...]
