About Pat Miran

Pat Miran – I grew up in Bellevue, Washington and began riding horses at an early age. My parents bought a pony when I was five and by the time I reached 9 or 10 I was spending a lot of time riding. Our neighbors had horses too.  My sister and I rode with a group of girls from the neighborhood. At 13, I joined the Hazelwood Peacemakers 4-H Club which was a large teen-club. The club coordinated a lot of exciting activities for their members. We put on Play Days which included events such as barrel racing, poles, jumping, keyhole and relay racing. I also participated in the Enumclaw County Fair, rode in parades and performed with our drill team at the Ellensburg Rodeo in Ellensburg, WA.  When I was 15, I bought a half-Arab 6 month old filly, and when she was old enough I trained her to ride. When I went off to college, the horses were sold, I married and moved away from horses.

 My daughter, Emma, always wanted to learn how to ride so when she graduated from college I found a stable near us that gave lessons. At Windy Ridge Stables located near Waverly, NY we took English Hunt Seat/Jumping lessons.

I had forgotten how much I loved horses. Through a friend I met Connie, her beautiful Standardbred Pepper and her Paint/Standardbred CJ. Since then I have leased Pepper and had lots of fun training CJ. I enjoy the fellowship of other riders, the friendly atmosphere at the stables, Horse Heaven, and the beauty of Roundtop Park in Pennsylvania. My blog is anything and everything about horses, riding and the people I meet along the way.

      Hi Paul, It’s so good hearing that you and Dream are doing well. I enjoyed meeting you this summer. Pepper and I are having fun. My friend Donna and I hitched her up to a cart. That was exciting. I don’t get into the city often – but next time I’m there I’ll look for you and Dream in the park.

      Best of Luck Always, Pat

    Great job on the coverage of the movie about War Horse and WW1 videos and your blog. How very important the horses and other animals played and died for us and for our far freedom. If indeed, they did live through it all. Many suffered and did not survive.

    It is unrealized that many were physcologically damaged to adapt to the world if they did live.

  3. Hi Pat,

    I am an equestrian novelist with a new racing romance being released in July and was hoping to you would consider reviewing it on 2 Talk Horses. Please drop me an email if you’re interested.

    Best wishes,

    Hey there,

    My name is Mandy, I’m contacting you on behalf of a company called Horse Gear Outlet (https://www.horsegearoutlet.com.au/). I came across your channel while researching horse & equestrian pages. I loved your page & I can see that you are a real horse enthusiast and have a really passionate community.

    The reason for my contact is we have just made a video that we’re quite excited about. We haven’t yet launched the video to the public, however we’re looking for feedback and general thoughts from people like you in the horse community.

    Wondering if the posters of JE Rodeo can be accessed via the internet.

      Hi Dee, Yes, you should be able to access the JE Rodeo posters on-line. Just google JE Rodeo and search under Images. Hope that helps – thanks for the comment. Happy trails, Pat
