I R A Q section upcoming:
As all of u know (I think), I've been to Iraq (the place I'm "originally" from) and ofc I took some pics for show to u guys. And I usually start of with "woah" pictures, but Iraq isn't really much of a "woah" factor. It still beautiful in it's own way tho❤
If you have the time, go google Iraq each time, before looking at the pictures I'm posting. Or just try to reminisce the content on Google. I'm trying to show that Iraq is something else than just war/poverty/crime/death/deserts etc.🇮🇶
Here's the first pic. We stayed in Erbil, and on the first day we went down to explore the downtown part of it. Erbil Citadel, which is inscribed on the world heritage list. It was really beautiful, and I wanted to return at night to have a lil longexpo, but unfortunately it didnt happen. So here's a bright light picture :')
Cheers for that 🍻

Last Saturday's workshop was everything that I had hoped and more. Everyone who attended was so kind and wonderful. Getting to meet folks was an absolute highlight for me and I'll forever be grateful to this little app for facilitating that. I haven't ever been much of a social media person, but I have always been impressed with the community on here and do feel that I've been incredibly fortunate to have had such a positive experience. So all the credit goes to you guys; I thank all of you for that gift of kindness and support.
On Saturday November 23rd, I will be at a Launch Party for @marystackshop in Del Mar, CA. The event is from 10am to 4pm and sponsored by @tuckersaddles @circleysaddles and @reinsmanequestrian
I hope I get to meet some more of you there! You can find more details about the event on @marystackshop page.
As some backstory, @tuckersaddles happens to be the reason I even finally took the leap into creating this Instagram account. I went through my first 2 Mexico to Canada rides and hadn't yet found a perfect saddle for Shyla. I was tired of constantly buying and reselling my saddles so reached out to @tuckersaddles for a sponsorship so that I could try out a variety of lightweight trail saddles. They took a pretty big chance on me since I had zero marketing prospects at that point. They cared more about what I did and less about whether I was on social media. So with some tips on what Instagram even was from my dear friend @saiesaiee (who just released her rad new single Nightmare by the way...) I decided to finally get on board.
So while this post isn't about riding trails or partnership with my equines, it is about those special relationships that have continued to support me to get out there and to share my adventures with others. I tend to need that little push to get out of my comfort zone. That comfort zone can look different to all of us, but we owe it to ourselves to keep exploring "new trails", whether literally or metaphorically, in order to keep growing and extending our horizons.
