An open letter to HillyBilly Farms

Sometimes when I can't sleep at night, I compose letters (well, email) in my head.

To get closure with an old boyfriend?
To revisit a childhood injustice with my mom or dad? No.
To cuss out a co-worker who richly deserves a dressing down? No.

My letter to HillBilly Farms
Hi guys. I don't know you, and know little about you other than what I read on your site. I'm writing to let you know that I'm a fan. Who knew that the equestrian community had a counter-culture? Just had to say, thanks for offering a counterpoint to a sport that takes itself pretty seriously. And keep it up.

Readers, may I direct your attention to the Hillbilly Farms parody at Jumping Clinic with George Morris. I wish I'd written that!

If you want to see their Web site, which has some good stuff (hunter Mad Libs, famous instructor quotes), not the least of which is 3 of the best corporate sponsors on the Web. Go to


  1. And here I thought I was the only one who stayed awake at night and composed emails. I'll have to go check out the Hillbillies.

  2. The clinics are hillarious! Thanks for that, really enjoyed it :)
