Seek… and ye shall find.  

Thursday, July 6, 2017 After a really fascinating day at the barn I’m left reflecting over that gut thing, that voice from somewhere else that has led me to the place I’m in right now. Then I feel grateful because that search that started as a gut feeling those years back that sent me offContinue reading “Seek… and ye shall find.  “

The land of unicorns

Tuesday, July 4, 2017 I’m just back from Scotland which I learned adopted the unicorn as its national animal in the 1300s. Apparently much of the Western world believed them to be real until ‘disproven’ in the 1800s. (We all laugh at this now but we are more civilized and modern than that… of courseContinue reading “The land of unicorns”

Now what?

Tuesday, June 20, 2017 Since pulling out of the OD100 on my first try a couple weeks back I find my life to be surprisingly normal (slight sarcasm). No long term disappointment holding on… just back to life as usual! No regrets.  My farrier came out. He looked at the bare hoof and wondered whyContinue reading “Now what?”

Gifts [edited]

Monday, June 12, 2017 One thing I love is finding ways everything is a gift- even the things you didn’t think you wanted. If you change perspective and turn them around enough you can see the beauty- but sometimes it takes a little squinting through tears! I am back from the OD safely and haveContinue reading “Gifts [edited]”

Details….

Saturday, May 20, 2017 Less than a month to go till June 10 when I tack up for a 5:30am start at the OD100. My brain is ticking along and lists are getting made and checked off.  Thankfully riding and conditioning assignments are light in this time window because the amount of mental energy goingContinue reading “Details….”

Dragonfly in the sun… you know what I mean..

Butterfly out having fun… you know what I mean… Saturday, May 13, 2017 Back to song lyrics again. Sometimes I just can’t get them out of my head and this one has stuck since my last ride a couple days ago.  Feeling Good… One month till our first 100 and the assignment from my enduranceContinue reading “Dragonfly in the sun… you know what I mean..”

Heart: the puzzle

Saturday, February 4, 2017 It’s February.  So far Khaleesi is on track for 50 miles at the Blackwater ride on March 5. We’re picking up miles with at least one 10-15 mile ride per week and she’s stayed sound. Saddle fit is doing great with my old pad and we even have boots that seemContinue reading “Heart: the puzzle”

Scoots 

Monday, January 30, 2017 Back to the details that keep us moving toward 100… which means 50 in just over a month.  My size 3 scoot boots arrived last week and I believe they fit. They are just tight   enough to be snug but not to cause pressure or rubbing.  I love the design.Continue reading “Scoots “
