Had a wonderful day at HITS (Horse Shows In The Sunshine) in Saugerties yesterday. It’s a really well organized, highly competitive horse show on fantastic grounds. You can compete with riders from all over the country, buy everything from stirrup irons to starbucks from the many great concessions, the footing is just perfect – really well maintained and there is a high level of professionalism by the organizers and competitors That’s my kinda horse show.

When I first moved to Ulster County from NYC I was looking for a place where I could have access to the horse world and be able to ride and compete close to home but not be too far from my ‘real life’ in Manhattan. I spent hours searching for horse farms in NY, horse properties in NJ, raw land with meadows, small houses with paster and every iteration between. I looked at a lot of suburbs and small towns surrounding the city – mainly in New York State, and New Jersey and although I found some great farms and places in Dutchess county it just didn’t have the right vibe for me. I knew this was going to be my second home, so the suburbs were too expensive for what I wanted and they just didn’t have sense of privacy and getting away from it all that I was craving. So finally I found my spot in Ulster County and have loved it ever since. It took lots of weekends over about a two year period, an advanced degree in translating real estate listing blurb into facts closer to the truth, gallons and gallons of gas (much cheaper then!) and probably a couple of hundred bucks in tolls. This experience was fun in hindsight and quite an adventure – two great things came out of if it 1) the place I live now and 2) this company!
