My name is Lindsay Berreth. I currently live in Leesburg, Va. I graduated from George Mason University with a BA in Communications in May 2010 with a concentration in journalism and I’ve been a staff writer for The Chronicle of the Horse magazine in Middleburg, Va., since 2012. 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 four interests; horses, music, travel and photography.
I have been eventing since 2002, but I’ve ridden horses all of my life. I recently moved from keeping my horses at home to a boarding barn in Leesburg. I have 5 of my own horses and my mom has one. I’m currently bringing along an off-the-track Thoroughbred and have one going prelim, 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.
