In 2013 I impulse-purchased a fat fluffy TB project horse named Jerry off of Facebook, sight unseen, just because I had a good feeling about him from his pictures. I sent the $900 purchase price via PayPal that morning, and a friend picked him up for me in Arkansas that afternoon. When Jerry made it to Texas he quickly became Henry, and a few months later we started in the jumpers, did the hunters once, then found our way to eventing a year later. From his very first cross country fence it was clear that we’d found his calling, and we haven’t looked back since.


These days we’re competing at Preliminary and showing mostly across the southern United States. Henry is a goofy, kind horse that brings joy to my life every single day, and I can never thank him enough for all the opportunities he’s given me. He’s been a challenge, but it’s been worth it, and he will will never be for sale. Every time I think we’ve reached our limits, he shows me that there’s more. It goes to show just how important heart is, and Henry has it in spades.

Henry’s other job is raising/babysitting his little “brother” Presto, a 2017 sBs colt by the eventing stallion Mighty Magic. Presto is a second generation homebred for me, out of my previous jumper mare Sadie (by Westporte). He was very sick for the first few weeks of his life, but overcame huge odds to beat his illness and earn the title of “miracle baby”. In 2018 Presto won the yearling colts class at the Central FEH Championships and was Reserve Champion overall yearling. Hopefully when he grows up he will be my next eventer!

        You wrote a review on pioneer boots, Can I ask you how these are for you now? I have the same ones but the elasticated leather has cracked and just wondered had this happened to you also.
        Thank u


  1. Hi Amanda:

    Thank you for your detailed review on our Eventing boots. We really appreciate it when someone takes the time to really study our boots and web site! Could you please send us your address information via info@majykequipe.com? We have some new product introductions coming out later this year and I would really love to keep in touch with you and perhaps have Henry try some out for us!
