What an amazing adventure it has been keeping the World Equestrian Games updated from behind and whithin the scenes here by your WegWag host Marti McGinnis for the past four years! But sadly they have come and gone so it is time to move on – and move on she has! This blog will no longer be updated but all new updates will carry on here: http://HorseJourney.wordpress.com . If you’re following WegWag tweets – then you’re automatically now following the new name HorseJourney. New to twitter? No worries just follow HorseJourney and we’ll be connected!

Are you perhaps into Equine Assisted Activities or Equine Assisted Learning? Then you’ll for sure want to subscribe to Marti’s blog that features tons of activities both at liberty and in the studio at www.QuantumSparks.com.

My Thank You WEG video was well received and appears below:

Marti documents her journey with her own horses. No trophies or medals to be won in that but a whole lot of fun at her expense and it’s all fun and on the table open. Marti has also recently made a huge overall to the EquineConnection.org rescue network. If you love horses (and we know you do) you should join me there now! Here’s a video that describes what EquineConnection is all about:

And finally some of you may know Marti is also an artist and has been making fun paintings and other creations featuring horses. Her fine art website documents everything she’s into. Check it out! www.happyart.com. Buy some at SongPony on Etsy.com.

Mini Horse Enjoys Louisville Art Car Show 2009

Posted in Art, Events, Videos with tags , , , , , on August 12, 2009 by martimu

Every year the Kentucky Museum of Art + Crafts throws a big huge party for Art Cars out in front of their facility. Artists drive in for the 3 day extravaganza from points near and far parking on Main Street from Thursday through Saturday in an assortment of some of the hippest, far-outingest, wackiest vehicles you ever did see! From a van encrusted in cheap bronze statuary, an antique rounded beauty lovingly dipped in copper pennies, a sedan of some kind painted with daisies and my little situation: The Lucky Pony Transport:

Living out ‘in the sticks’ as I do, it’s always fun to get off the farm and go mingle with like-minded crazies. I have a miniature horse who is gregarious and fearless and since we are headed for a side career of visiting people in facilities to cheer them up I figured this would be an excellent experience for the little dude to get under his surcingle so to speak.

This event never fails to energize me! This year Art Car guru, Harrod Blank made the trek all the way from his home base in Berkely, CA. So, too, did some folks from Art Car World in Arizona, as well as from Oregon, Kansas Indiana and elsewhere (couldn’t talk to everybody – I had a mini horse on the end of my arm pulling me here and there). I did manage to get some footage of the experience and present it to you herewith:

So you see? You can have fun with horses AND express yourself and can even do these two wonderful things at the same time! I made a painting to commemorate the fun I had. I call it “Horsing Around With a Car”. Click it to see it for sale on Etsy!
