I'm a Horseback Writer. I write; I farm; I ride. If I could figure out how to balance a laptop on the saddle horn I'd likely give it a try, draining my computer battery while re-charging my own. 
If you'd like to find out how I can help you work with you and your horse and achieve your horsemanship goals, visit my Horse Basics page. I specialize in the fundamentals of horse handling, obstacle work, working with foals and youngsters, and goal setting to help you to achieve your dreams. Watch my Horse Basics Facebook page for upcoming events, respectful discussion and regular training tips and check back regularly on the Events tab here for the latest events at Sweet Grass Farm.

Sweet Grass Farm is my home, near Orton, Ontario, Canada. The Obstacle Park is open seasonally for individual use, clinics and workshops. Based in Extreme Cowboy racing and recreational trail riding, our indoor and outdoor courses offer a wide variety of ranch and trail type obstacles in a safe environment for you and your horse as well as some lovely trails around the property. As a Level 1 EXCA Judge, I am available to help you enjoy and improve your obstacle work. Have a look at our Sweet Grass Farm FB page for more information or go to the Sweet Grass Farm tab on this website.

Are you looking for a writer? Visit my Horseback Writer page. I've been scribbling about agriculture and equiculture since 2002, offering professional writing services anywhere you need a pen - newspaper and magazine articles, website content, letters, memoirs, portfolios - you name it. Let me show you how I can make your ideas into compelling reading, tidy up your social media presence to make it more effective, or how I can make a website for you like this one.

For my thoughts from the saddle and some writing samples please visit my blog The Whinny or to read about our Paints, Jake, Spike and Nemo, read Jake's Journal.
