Welcome to the September 2014 Carnival. I apologize for the delay in putting this together. I was almost caught up after my trip to New York to look after my father and then yesterday during a thunderstorm, our router and cable modem were blown up by a lightning strike.
How many of you, like Katherine, have bought a horse sight unseen? I’ve never gone quite that far, but I do have my own “Horse Hunt Fairy Godmother” who matched me with both Freedom and Zelda. She seems to know far better than I what kind of horse I will like (and those two are as different from each other as can be imagined).
And my condolences to Amy who writes A Work in Progress: A Middle Aged Broad’s Decent Back into Madness who lost her horse Sugar in August. It’s so very hard to lose such a special horse.
So now, with no further delays, here’s this month’s Carnival. Enjoy!

Tom von Kap-herr presents Denise Wilson wins the CCI Grand Prix posted at Back Home in Bromont, saying “Having moved back to Bromont Quebec last winter, I now photograph all the events for the Bromont Equestrian Park, home to the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games. This summer, by far, the most popular post I did was about Denise Wilson’s win during the Bromont International. I particularly love the photo’s I took of Denise and Winter. Even after looking at them a thousand times, I still feel the excitement of those few short seconds around the ring.”
