About

My name is Lindsay Berreth. I currently live in Fredericksburg, Va. I  graduated from George Mason University with a BA in Communications in May 2010 with a concentration in journalism. I decided to start a blog to post samples of my work, as well as chronicle my life, which I think is kind of unique. I have three interests; horses, music and photography.

I have been eventing since 2002, but I’ve ridden horses all of my life. I currently live at home, which is a 9-acre farm in Stafford County. I have 4 of my own horses and my mom has one. You can read all about my activities on the separate pages for each horse, or on the homepage of this blog. I plan to update it every week with updates on my training and competitions. I am currently bringing along an off-the-track Thoroughbred, so that brings plenty to write about!

I have been going to concerts since I was 16 in the Md/Va/DC area. I’ve traveled everywhere from Baltimore to Norfolk for shows. I currently operate Avoid the Scene, a website which features my photography and music news. I try to photograph a few shows a month.

I am a self-taught photographer and I work for GRC Photography on many weekends shooting horse shows. I feel like photography brings together my two very different interests in horses and music. I’m also interested in history, England (I’m an anglophile!), makeup and beauty (I spend way too much money at Sephora) and television and movies.

  1. Hi Lindsay,
    I saw you mentioned taking a dramatic photo of me falling off at Fair Hill in 2001 and wondered if there was any way I could get a copy from you?
    Let me know….

  2. in your event travels.. have you found any ‘cure’ for a horse sticking his tongue out? it really messes up my dressage scores.. I have tried , bits, butters, chews, tie downs etc etc etc.. i get an A for effort.. she is an 8 yo Arab Hanoverian mare,, sparky and brave. get s the job done.. but all i ask is 4 minutes for a f-in dressage test.. thanks for any input

    • I had a Hanoverian mare who used to stick her tongue out. We tried wrapping a Fruit Roll Up on the bit and that seemed to help sometimes. I often found that it went in when my half halt really went through and she was completely through and over her back. If it came out during a test, I usually just got marked down a little bit for submission.
