From Endurance to Dressage
When Work is Scarier than Halloween
This has been a very long, and staying with the season, scary past five days. We've been doing parent/teacher conferences all week. Insert blood curdling scream here. I am tired, cranky, and just need some peace and quiet.
I used to love Halloween, but after working with kids all day long, I find that I resent my doorbell being rung every twelve seconds by kiddos who want me to put down my glass of wine to give them candy. So, my husband and I boycott the festivities by going out for dinner or leaving town. This year, we're going to the cabin.
Since I am not a total killjoy, enjoy this little spook-graphic from Mary's Tack and Feed. It's perfect for the horse lover who likes halloween stuff but doesn't want to do the doorbell ringing part. Happy Halloween and see you all Monday!
Halloween is nearly upon us and everyone knows the ghastly villains, but what about their horses? Mary's Tack & Feed takes a look at some of the spookiest equines that have haunted stories through the ages.<a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.marystack.com">http://www.marystack.com</a>/

Sounds like a rough week- I have a friend doing conferences as well and I know just not to call her during that week.

I love the spooky horses. Cool share. The horses ridden by the white walkers in game of thrones are also very creepy. Basically zombie horses with skeleton and flesh exposed.

About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
