Amateurs Like Us: Kacie Linegar's Night Rides Keep Her Grounded

It may have been just a schooling show, but for amateur dressage rider Kacie Linegar, scoring in the high-70s at first level on her Friesian Sport Horse Sir Alexander this fall meant more to her than any other score she’s ever earned.

The mother of a 4-year-old and 2-year-old twins, Linegar juggles riding, a family and running her own business near Houston, Texas. While she may never ride in the light of day and sacrifices sleep for her passion, earning those scores showed her she’s still able to balance it all.

Buckeye’s Back! And He’s Jumping!

Buckeye the mule impressed us back in August when he scored consistently in the high 60 and low 70 percents at recognized dressage shows, so when we saw he was out and about with his rider, Sammi Majors, showing off his versatility, we had to get the story.

Buckeye and Majors returned home from the North Carolina State Fair Mule and Donkey Show on Oct. 25 with an armful of blue ribbons.

Stephanie Cook Has A New Lease On Life And A Good Thoroughbred

Stephanie Cook’s goal for the year with Texas Checkmate was to top the Take2 Thoroughbred League’s jumper standings, but a rotational fall from another horse in May resulted in a broken pelvis, a broken C-5 vertebrae and 12 broken ribs and seemingly ended that campaign.

But with the help of good friends and a lot of determination, Cook endured 12 weeks of rehab, “Checkers” continued earning points, and she was back in the saddle in time to finish out the season and win the 2015 year-end standings.
