How It All Started

Updated: Jan 27, 2020

I may be a little rusty at blogging as it has been a few years. Hopefully, it won't be too indiscernible. I am revitalizing a blog that I originally started roughly 15 years ago when I was in college at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. My concentration was in marketing, and one of the courses we had to take during the online marketing portion was Blogging. At the time I knew nothing about blogging. All the same, I did enjoy all of the tasks involved including; starting a blog, getting a certain number of followers, and using social media platforms to market our blogs. Nonetheless, after the course I let the blog go. I still kept the Facebook (unpublished) under my Facebook profile. Years passed and life took over. I was fortunate enough to meet an amazing man, and we now have two beautiful daughters, Summer and Ana.

My husband and I both work in the real estate industry but, for most of our marriage, I have never been fully satisfied with my professional choice. Though I absolutely love interior design, architecture, and helping people realize their real estate dreams; I have always wanted a small business that was of my own creation.

I am lucky enough to have a husband that fully supports my horse craziness. He has purchased multiple equine partners for me and our girls over the years. We started our journey together in the Wellington, Florida area but about 2 years ago we moved our little family farm up to Canton, Georgia, which is about 35 minutes north of Atlanta. I absolutely adore the beautiful life we have together but I have always had an "entrepreneurial itch."

The Reviving of the Erudite Equestrian Blog

My husband always says he loses me to my own contemplations when anything is out of balance with our animals on the farm. Whether it be a training issue, health or product research, decorating projects, or complicated situations I just can't solve, I will spend weeks immersing myself in research. After doing this recurrently for the past ten years, and also logging into Facebook to see my Erudite Equestrian page sitting their unpublished…. waiting for me…. I have decided to write down my thoughts and findings and share them with other equestrian and animal lovers.

I suppose I may be out of practice at blogging, but I sincerely hope it will be like riding a bicycle - in the sense that you pick right up where you left off. I hope you enjoy our journey together in educating and learning about all things equestrian.
