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 andContinue reading “Identity Crisis”

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 mightContinue reading “What can I say?”

Building.

Monday, August 14, 2017 I've been asked a few times lately if I'm getting ready for another endurance event. The answer has been the same since mid-June: Yes! Hopefully in September!

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.  “

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]”

ˈkäNGɡro͞oənt

Thursday, May 25, 2017 As this 40th year for me draws to a close in July there and I get closer to a big riding goal- I also reflect on where I am in life and what it means to the larger journey.  A good place to check in.  Those of us who are horseContinue reading “ˈkäNGɡro͞oənt”
