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!"

Don't Forget the Sugar!

Posted 08-15-2014 at 08:05 AM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

I’ve had dogs my whole life. Babette was my poodle-dachshund before designer dogs were cool. There were hounds, shepherds, rescues, mutts of all types, and there was Sugar. She was a snow-dog mix. I once looked into the eyes of a Malamute and saw Sugar. I think she had Malamute in her but who knows? Her coat had the underfur that turned every carpet she touched snowy white. Her shedding was unmerciful.

Sugar was a stray, that is to say she strayed from whence she came. I was on...

Paddle Board Lessons

Posted 08-04-2014 at 08:33 PM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

I was in Hawaii for what seems like months and I was dying to rent a paddle board. I could never get anyone else interested so one day I took off work a couple of hours early. It was a Friday and almost too late to rent equipment. The lifeguard rolled his eyes when I told him I’d never tried it. He insisted on giving me a briefing on the best place to stand, the right way to get up off your knees, how to face the waves head on. And he warned me that it wasn’t easy the first time. “I’ve got...

I Need Coffee

Posted 08-01-2014 at 06:12 AM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

The pink and orange sign beckoned me. It had become a habit, turning into that donut shop every week when my job took me in this direction. Sometimes I even picked up a dozen donuts for the people where I was going. It starts with my not getting enough sleep and wanting a café latte. You know the story “as long as I’m here I’ll take one of those chocolate chip muffins”. Well, not this time. I didn’t need a muffin, I just needed a coffee. I’m not a big Duncan fan. I’m a big donut fan...

Super Troopers

Posted 07-18-2014 at 04:45 PM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

I was driving along the interstate. Traffic was crawling, six lanes wide, bumper to bumper. It’s often like that so I wasn’t giving it much thought. Up ahead blue lights flashed on the left side of the road. Sometimes rubber-neckers slow things down when they pass a fellow motorist who’s been pulled over. We’re always happy it’s not us, aren’t we? So it was slow, yes. As I pulled closer the State Trooper got out of his car and walked into traffic, his hand out in the universal cop sign...

The one that got away, but not fast enough..

Posted 07-09-2014 at 02:43 PM by hunterseat (Keeping it Kind)

...well, it was a turtle, after all. Yes. A very large snapping turtle. How large? Hold your arms out like you're hugging your mama around the waist. Your hands need to touch so, maybe not your mama. Did I just sneak in a mama joke?

The thing was roaming the neighborhood like a kid who got off at the wrong bus stop. I called the boss who is not quite all there to see if he wanted a snapping turtle. He was very excited and I figured this would be good for my career. I loaded...
