Author: Amy Blum
A native New Yorker, Amy has lived in the Finger Lakes area for more than 30 years. She runs her public relations business from her suburban home, representing a variety of local through national and international arts, culture, and business clients and events. Amy loves writing, reading, music, and social media, and finds the outdoors (and photographing it) to be therapeutic for her brain after a day of sitting at her computer.

She continues to find wonderful places and experiences in the Finger Lakes to share with her husband, friends, and out-of-town guests. And this summer she’s discovering the joys of *very* simple gardening. Not bad for someone who grew up living in an apartment in New York City.

For transparency’s sake, she’s the publicist for the Cosequin Stuart Horse Trials.

In a private, secluded area off Townline and Murray Roads in Victor, Ontario County lies 100 magnificent acres of privately owned land. For 362 days a year, it is a quiet residential area. But for three days every year since 1990, this “NEIGH-borhood” transforms into an equestrian competitor’s paradise—and spectators can witness the entire competition from just feet away.
