Bienvenue Welcome!

Welcome to my blog, where I share my life with my Off Track Standardbred Mr Beau Windswept aka Beaux (sounds like Bo but with the French/Louisiana spelling, a big nod to my Louisiana roots), promoting the amazing Standardbred, training tips for your OTSTB, and a lot of my personal musings.

I’m a lifelong horse person, I also have spent 20 years on the racetrack with both the TB but mostly the STB tracks and farms working with these amazing horses. I’ve retrained dozens of OTTBs and OTSTBs and have learned a few things along the way. I am currently trying my hand at Distance Riding and aiming for the local show circuit. I’m a contributing writer to “The Standardbred Connection”  an online magazine that promotes the pleasure Standardbred.

So I hope you enjoy following Beaux and I on our journey together and also maybe find a little love for a misunderstood breed.
