Need A Break? Time For Shopping Therapy!

TALES FROM THE TRAILS There’s a lot more to do in Wellington during the Winter Equestrian Festival than participating in and/or watching shows.

They’ve been at their current location, at the corner of Pierson Road and South Shore Blvd., more...

Amy Cedarburg Practices Cranio-Sacral Therapy

TALES FROM THE TRAILS I started out a skeptic and ended up a believer. When Amy Cedarburg works with a horse, it doesn’t look like anything’s going on. But looks can be deceptive. Originally from Milwaukee, Amy moved to Tampa with her family when she was 11. Her family had run a dude ranch back in Wisconsin, and Amy missed riding. She begged and pleaded, and more...

Busy Time At South Florida Fair’s Horse Tent

TALES FROM THE TRAILS It was Sunday, Jan. 18, opening weekend of the 2015 South Florida Fair. I approached the horse tent with some trepidation, wondering what I’d find. In recent years, there had been times one had to search high and low to find horse events; times you couldn’t even see a live horse. What would this year hold? I was thrilled to find a horse more...
