Paula offers training, lessons, part boarding, in barn leases, coaching and sales out of Doc Ridge Dressage.

She also spent 2 years in Holland working in the horse industry there both training and showing and she shares one of her embarrassing stories from her time over there. All of this experience in different aspects of the horse world are helping her to achieve her goal of being a great all-around horseperson, not just a great rider.

Eat, Sleep, Ride, Repeat
Eat Sleep Ride Repeat is the brainchild of Canadian endurance rider Sarah Cuthbertson. In 2014, Sarah was selected as the sole Canadian rider that year to race Mongolia’s wild horses 1000 km across the Mongolian steppe. She started the blog to not only allow others to read of her adventures leading up to and during the race, she was fundraising as well to help offset the approximately $10,000 entry fee. Since then, the blog has grown to include an online store where fans can purchase their Eat Sleep Ride Repeat gear, as well as contributors Solstice Pecile and Ashley Tomaszewski. In this episode of the podcast, The London Equestrian had a chance to sit down with Sarah and Ashley after they completed their 75 mile and 50 mile races, respectively, and hear the stories of their adventures at the Coates Creek Challenge held this past Canada Day long weekend. To learn more about Eat Sleep Ride Repeat, you can follow the blog at www.eatsleepriderepeat.com or find them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/esrr2017/.
