Saturday, January 21, 2017 Those who know me will not find it hard to agree when I say subtlety is often lost on me.  I have a (now) favorite story where God continued to try to point me the right direction and I resisted until I finally pulled a muscle trying to go my ownContinue reading “Rest. “

Heart: on the road part deux

Sunday, January 15, 2017 This was too good of an update not to post so here’s a brief follow up to the Heart progress blog even though it’s the same day! Sunday was not as wet and cold as I’d expected so after some house chores (woke up and realized my barn was probably cleanerContinue reading “Heart: on the road part deux”

Heart: on the road. 

Sunday, January 15, 2017 K seems to have pulled something in her shoulder and is slightly off so she’s on rest. If I had to guess it is a product of muddy fields and her self appointed job of keeping Wild Heart ‘in line’. Sometimes her bucking and galloping and sliding are less then graceful. Continue reading “Heart: on the road. “

Not Riding Today 

Wednesday, January 11, 2017 Middle school. At least I’m smart enough to ask for guidance from those who’ve gone before me… Today I had a phone call with my mentor… the question: what do I need to do to be sure K is ready for an early 50 in March this season? Should I beContinue reading “Not Riding Today “

Winter Conditioning : Brought to you by Duct tape and vet wrap

Thursday, January 5, 2017 Determined to continue training despite hoofwear woes I put my broken boots back together as best I could and dug through the old chest for anything I could get on her front foot to keep on the trail while waiting for the new scoots.  I found a long past use easybootContinue reading “Winter Conditioning : Brought to you by Duct tape and vet wrap”

Trial & Error (& Error…)

Monday, January 2, 2017 I’m not sure if this is a good first post of  the year or a bad one.  The January 1 change over to a New year seems somewhat man-made and arbitrary. In fact, if it were up to me I would have separated these big holidays out more over the year.Continue reading “Trial & Error (& Error…)”

Middle School

Friday, December 30, 2016 Winter has come. Now I’m getting ready for Khaleesi’s second (full) season. I am not completely new to endurance, but I’m far from an experienced rider. I suppose figuratively I’m moving into the awkward middle school years.   This winter I am taking a horse with 5 LD rides and 3Continue reading “Middle School”

Margin, Barn Therapy & The Work

Who would you be without your story? Friday, December 23, 2016 Merry Christmas! During this Holiday season I’ve found myself building up internally with small stresses and irritations- running short on time and daylight to do all I want to get done.  A friend of mine recently shared a similar experience with things we bothContinue reading “Margin, Barn Therapy & The Work”

Heart: the process

December 11, 2016 Wild Heart came about a month ago and I’ve mentioned her in the blog but not been very focused on her here.  Green to 100 is the story of Khaleesi and me on a journey to a one-day 100, but Heart fits in the story as a team member and the thingsContinue reading “Heart: the process”

Wild Heart

Monday, October 31, 2016 Hello team green fans. This blog is an update and explanation of how October and ride season is wrapping up.  First there is no Fort Valley update because we didn’t go.  No- Khaleesi isn’t injured and she was basically ready to go and hopefully complete one last 50 of our firstContinue reading “Wild Heart”
