NickerDoodles: What’d You Do Over the 4th of July Weekend?

Average American’s response: Went to the lake/grilled out/watched sports/etc. Average horseperson’s response: Something much, much different…

From Melanie Eberhardt, who explains, “I was so excited about a three-day weekend, relaxing, enjoying the holiday… but all I did was work for three days instead of the usual weekend two days,  and everything on a farm is so HEAVY.”


Go Riding!

About Melanie: I am an artist in Atlanta. When I’m not painting, I’m riding horses. I have 3 retired Arabians and a snotty pony at home. They keep me on my toes. Three years ago I bought a young OTTB straight off the track. My new fella, Bubba, and I are learning dressage. Sadly, I’m the weak link on Team Bubba, but I learn something every time we ride so it’s all good. I started NickerDoodles to document the horsey antics that abound within my world. I’m very fortunate to balance my life with things that I love – painting and riding – and NickerDoodles gives me a forum to share. If we’re not laughing at our horses and ourselves, we’re probably crying. I prefer to laugh! I hope everyone enjoys NickerDoodles.
