Because we weren't all raised by Horse Whisperers!

First - What is a Stirrup Cup?

A Stirrup Cup is a "parting cup" (AKA Drink) given to guests, especially when they are leaving and have their feet in the stirrups. Generally the drink is Sherry or Port, which as you know is alcohol. I'm assuming you drink before the ride because it hurts less when you fall off.

This blog has been created for: Horse-Crazed Teens, City Slickers, Budding Dressage Divas, Wanna-Be-Horse Whisperers and The "Equine Focused" Mid-Life Crisis. Let's face it we all didn't get a pony for our birthday as a kid. (I did...but don't hate me...I'm here to help you!) And just because we're horse-crazy doesn't mean those raising us or married to us are!

Here's a venue to learn some of the tribal knowledge gained from my many years of horse experience. Now, there are somethings you just have to experience to understand. But I'll try to do the best I can with pictures, video tutorials, guest bloggers while creating an open stream of communication. I'll give you encouragement to go out and get your feet in the stirrups and supply you with helpful resources.

  1. What a cool blog! I've always loved horses but can't afford one. Maybe you can tell me how I can get my horse-fix without owning a horse?
