Honeysuckle Faire - The Blog

Hi and welcome to Honeysuckle Faire! If you stopped by here to learn about riding and retraining horses using only kindness and patience as your "aids" then you are at the right place. My name is Juliette Ober and I rescue and retrain off-track Thoroughbreds (OTTBs) to be riding horses. No bits, lunging, or round pens are used in any training or riding yet safe, daily rides on young, sweet Thoroughbreds are happening at Honeysuckle Faire because my boys are happy, sane, and sound. 

Although after 400 posts (!) I am no longer writing this blog, I am still riding and playing with my silly Thoroughbreds - just click the photo above to see a quick video of Pie's silly antics! This blog is archived chronologically (top right) and is a good resource to trace the process I used to retrain my three young Thoroughbreds. Additionally, there is a formal presentation of my training philosophy on my Found in the Fog site.

I've had the honor of writing articles for Equitrekking, the Emmy award-winning equestrian themed travel television show on PBS. My articles for Equitrekking are indexed and linked here.

My Instagram account is julietteober - definitely pop on over to see what I am doing with my horses each day. If you are on Instagram just follow me and I will follow back so I can see your horsey adventures too!

And, of course, I love hearing from you so please never hesitate to use good, ol' fashioned email to say "Hey!" at

Hope this information helps keep you safe and your horses happy and eager for the daily ride! 
Take care,
Juliette Ober


  1. Miss your blogging; will have to take up instagramming (is that even a verb?)

  2. Hi lmel!!! I miss all my blogging friends too - yes I think instagramming is a verb!!! Way less time consuming than blogging - more time to ride and also worry about my new 16 year old driver, Maizie girl!!!!

  3. I think the admin of this site is in fact working hard in favor of his site, because here every stuff is quality based material. mail login

  4. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers


Thanks for taking the time to visit Honeysuckle Faire!
