Identity Crisis

Monday, September 25, 2017 Three weeks since a blog post! I’ve been at the barn but not riding so much. For a few weeks my horse program has felt on the fritz and my real work has been ramping up and needing extra attention. So I gave my mares some time to be horses and […]

What can I say?

Friday, September 1, 2017 I haven't written recently not because my mind is blank or because I haven't been active with my horses. I just don't know what exactly to say. So in discussion with the 4am voices in my head that often turn into a blog post all I could think was I might […]

Hoof school

Refined through the fire. 

April 26, 2017 Where to begin? There’s been a lag in my blogging because I’ve been too busy doing to catch up with writing. Let me try to sum it up. Since my last blog post: my mother came to visit. We hosted a two-day private horsemanship type clinic together with friends (horsemanship seems the […]
