hunterseat df: Hunter Seat Equitation is a division that is judged on the ability and the style of the rider. The riders can be judged both over fences and on the flat.

Although true, hunters DO eat, at least the skilled ones do, my name derives from the world of horses.

And because the word hunter is in my name, people automatically think I'm a guy. Not even close.

Whenever I meet someone named Hunter I have to bite my tongue to keep from saying "That's my name, too!"

Where seldom is heard an encouraging word

Posted 11-05-2014 at 03:31 PM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

Do you remember singing that song as a kid? Home on the Range? My family was all about impromptu singing while riding in the car, while sitting around the kitchen table, or any time at all. We knew silly songs and verses (I Have Lost My Underwear sung to the tune of Bye Bye Blackbird) and we knew more somber songs like my favorite hymn "I’ll Fly Away".

I think it’s healthy for a child to spontaneously break into song and belt out a chorus of If You’re Happy and...

Oh my blog, I have not forsaken you.

Not like the turkey legs that refused to be done after TWO HOURS in the oven tonight. No.

Not like the carton of vegetable broth that disguised itself as Almond Milk and ended up in my tea this morning. No.

Not like my simple walk with the dogs today, during which I got turned around and ended up 3 miles away from my house after crossing a stream TWICE and watching my dog murder a field mouse.

Look at your calendar and put your finger on Monday...

Can You Hear Me Now?

Posted 09-23-2014 at 10:01 AM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

Yesterday I was walking my dogs in the park and as two people passed, the lady spoke to me. I wanted to say “You’ve got the prettiest voice!” I didn’t say that. It would have sounded strange, wouldn’t it? I wonder if anyone ever said that to her? I wonder if she knows it. It occurred to me she might be a radio personality. If not she should be. But it got me thinking about voices.

Do you like the sound of your own voice? I’m okay with mine,as long as I hear it from inside my head...

Hide My Crazy? Never!

Posted 09-13-2014 at 02:23 PM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

I like Miranda Lambert. She’s feisty and she’s very soft-hearted towards animals. She has a song you may have heard about a broken hearted girl being told by her mother to basically keep up appearances for the family’s sake. I picture a girl going hysterical and her mama telling her to “hide your crazy”.

Traumatic (or dramatic?) events in our lives can clearly illustrate how close to the surface our “crazy” is. Really? You don’t think you've got any crazy in you?...

Bee Hive!

Posted 08-30-2014 at 07:52 AM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

I feel a ramble coming on…

Consider the words “BEE HIVE”. There’s a movie in which the children twist the word “behave” into “bee hive” and a swarm is conjured up to save the day. So these days, with all children grown and social media on the forefront, I will sometimes post “bee hive” and trust the smarter of the children will catch the meaning.

Consider the concept “behave”. I generally do. That is behave…with little or no consideration....
