How I came to be

The Blonde & The Bay

In 2015, The Blonde & The Bay was born from an idea to begin my own creative venture. Instead of bombarding my friends with photos of my mare, Leah, I made the decision to start a separate Instagram account solely for horse related content. Our journey began to to take shape as I posted our adventures on the regular, from successes to struggles and everything in between. The rest is history. 


My name is Madelyn, but you can call me Maddie. I began riding at the age of 3 and from the moment my foot slid into the stirrup, I never looked back... I am 27 years old now. My dressage career started in 2004 with my Welsh Pony, Brightwood. Since then, many things have changed, but one has remained the same: my passion for this sport. I am a United States Dressage Federation Bronze and Silver Medalist, competing at the FEI Level in Region 9. My mare, Ulfilia DG "Leah" is a 18 year old, Dutch Warmblood standing at 16.3 hands high. She is the centerfold of The Blonde & The Bay. 

With the addition of team roping, and an incredible man by my side, together we share the details of living a life devoted to horses on our little ranch with Christ as our foundation. It's not glamorous, but we love it.


It is truly our own lifestyle.
