First 5 videos

It’s been fun creating the first mini-series in video for starting the day connected. I’ve learned a fair amount already about the video-audio process and they will continue to improve in quality as I go forward. There are a couple ways to find the videos in one place. First is the link to my WordPressContinue reading “First 5 videos”

The Relationship

I knew when I brought home Ireland (now Khaleesi) as a barely handled 4 year old that I didn’t want a horse that complied with what I wanted or needed out of fear or force. I wanted a willing horse who would choose to be my partner. I didn’t want a trained horse, I wantedContinue reading “The Relationship”

First things first!

Hello Green to 100 readers! I am excited to share some new video content through green to 100. In the recent survey most responded they wanted to improve the relationship with their horse yet didn’t believe they had the time needed to do this effectively. No matter how good our relationships are with horses thereContinue reading “First things first!”

Give up the pattern

Know when you have to give up the pattern to work on the dance. Emily Kemp My long term plans for Khaleesi include finishing higher mileage events culminating hopefully in a single-day 100 mile ride. For Wyoming at the moment it includes having a horse that can function as a solid trail partner including transportContinue reading “Give up the pattern”

Kairos

I like to imagine a horse knows her name and will tell you if you ask. Khaleesi was born on March 17 and named Shamrock temporarily until she was renamed Ireland. I knew when she came to live with me however, that she had a real name and would reveal it when she was readyContinue reading “Kairos”

Adventure in the depths

With the world of Covid my circles have become smaller, yet I’ve found instead of feeling grounded or isolated I’ve been finding my ‘GO’ in depth instead of width. I am grateful to live in a place with around 75% National Forest and low population density, so it’s normal for me to spend a dayContinue reading “Adventure in the depths”

Lessons: Kindergarten Graduation

July 10, 2019 This blog is part of a series inspired by a private clinic with Emily Kemp. I highly recommend her and you can find more information here: Emily Kemp Website Some of the most profound lessons for me from the clinic came from working with Wyoming. Wyoming is a BLM Mustang from WyomingContinue reading “Lessons: Kindergarten Graduation”

Lessons: check in!

July 5, 2019 I recently hosted a 4-day private clinic with wonderful horsewoman Emily Kemp [Emily Kemp Horsemanship] for a handful of my riding friends. I can’t adequately describe in words the elegance and joy in Emily’s riding (and her genuine humility that accompanies it) but what I love even more is that we shareContinue reading “Lessons: check in!”

Post Season

Monday, October 19, 2015 Our first season is now behind us and it’s a mix between the letdown of anticipation and activity and a more relaxed feeling of enjoying the ride without training goals in the forefront. I sometimes just go to the barn to bring apples and love and the girls must know becauseContinue reading “Post Season”

The little things

Monday, September 21, 2015 Khaleesi has had a well deserved break, and Faygo and I have taken a few rides- a little alone time together, and some trail clearing and riding fun with Nancy and Mireyah. It’s been forever since we’ve ridden with them and that was a great ride. We got off and clippedContinue reading “The little things”
