The 33-page Horse Showing Humor e-book compiles 16 of the most beloved columns penned by Pam for The American Quarter Horse Journal, including:

  • The Frugal Fashionista: Showing on the cheap means going where no blinger has gone before.
  • Life’s Little Hurdles: Once we overcome them, we can fly.
  • True Love: It must be love if I let my kid steal my horse.
  • Caution, Please!: Some of us are skittish enough without warm-up woes.
  • At Long Last: It’s not just another horse show; it’s another wonderful chance to show my horse.
  • The White Stuff: There are some days when we have ‘snow’ business riding.
  • Queen for a Day: And the horse of a lifetime.

Pam's take on horse showing is one many an equestrian can commiserate with. "I think most of us are stress-messes the morning of a horse show," Pam writes. "I don’t know about you, but I start to relax once I’m warming up. Boots: check. Bridle: check. Brain: doubtful."

"Horse people are crazy," Pam admits. "Honestly, we do some of the silliest things. Climbing aboard a 1,500-pound animal who’s afraid of his own shadow? Check. Heading into the coyote-laden hills aboard the back of said animal? Check. Using that same animal to rope, jump, run around barrels, shoot off firearms, control riots, chase criminals and goodness knows what else? Check. It’s no wonder things don’t always go the way we want them to."
