I crossed paths with Melanie Anseth a few years ago when we acquired one of her and her husband’s horses. She has been on my radar ever since as the enigmatic, bright woman she is, and I’ve been even more intrigued to see what she can get done with hats. If you’re in need of […]

Last year I wrote a couple articles about my young stud horse named Hollywoods Bandit and the events that had taken place in his early years. The first article being https://cavvysavvy.tsln.com/blog/hollywoods-bandit/ And the second article being https://cavvysavvy.tsln.com/blog/hollywoods-bandit-continued/ A lot has happened since the last article about Bandit.

I rode a horse years ago that had some issues. He was pretty gentle and traveled okay, but he wasn’t the brightest bulb in the drawer. He sort of woke up in a new world every day. No matter how many times some jobs were done, each time was the first time. I didn’t like […]

Buddy was a big, good looking, gentle, well bred four year old gelding I was riding for my Dad through calving one spring. I’d used him all winter and had packed my little nephew on him and even pulled him in the sled, so he was pretty solid in most ways and really lazy. It […]
