Sponsors, Amazing Sponsors! Revitavet!

This year has been an amazing adventure filled with invaluable experiences and opportunities. None of this is possible without you! Much love from Team Weston!

I use Reviavet on Lusty's back to keep her nice and relaxed before dressage, and after especially hard workouts to help with soreness. Whenever a horse comes in from the pasture with a scrape or a cut, I say:


Please feel free to call or email me with any questions or ordering info. I can even give you access to special discounts! (541) 784-8403/westwoodstables@gmail.com/http://www.revitavet.com/

"Light therapy has been shown in over 40 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms. 
Both visible red and infrared light have been shown to affect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level."

"Light therapy has been shown to Increase vascularity (circulation) by increasing the formation of new capillaries, which are additional blood
vessels that replace damaged ones."

We are crazy horse gypsies....

Thomas being fabulous last year as a 4yo
Yes its true. I was reminded of our interesting lifestyle (which has become to feel completely natural by the way. I no longer batt an eye at not having time to find a laundry mat, seek out internet, or running out of propane and taking cold showers....the list goes on) during our competition today. I took Baby Thomas to his last training level event before moving up to prelim (yay!). On grounds I thought I was going crazy and asked several people if they heard bagpipes playing. Thankfully, others were hearing it too. Just across the hill from us a scottish festival was happening.

"What crazy people!", I thought, "What compels seemingly normal citizens to dress in kilts and blow into a carpet bag all day for fun?" Then I was reminded, "oh riiiiiight. We hop on horse's backs in tight pants to jump things at fast speeds for fun." Well to each his own I suppose!!

So. Besides sifting through my dirty laundry pile for the cleanest pieces like a scavenging raccoon,
I am loving the new farm! It is beautiful here and love love loving all the opportunities to compete only a few hours away from home.

Quick competition updates:
Lusty knawing happily on her stall guard before Jersey CIC3* Dressage
Lusty has been fab, getting to a point where we can push for a little more in the dressage. The good news: The "Red Dragon" is now calm enough in the ring where we will be able to have a short warmup without (hopefully, knock on wood) getting too amped up in the ring. As of now we have been mounting at the stables and heading right into the ring. I am becoming more confident at the advanced/3* level xc, and we are both getting smoother in the show jumping. We get more practice at Bromont CIC3* in a few weeks, can't wait!
