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!”

Ch-ch-ch-changes

I know it’s true only thing we can count on is change itself. And the winds of change are stirring in many places from my viewshed. It adds to the quieting that Fall already brings, beautiful in its descend toward winter and the cycle of death and rebirth that is the most jarring for meContinue reading “Ch-ch-ch-changes”

With me.

Last week was a milestone for Wyoming and me. Her first solo ride. I had gone to the barn with that plan in mind, however when I arrived I had my doubts if it would be the right day. Well it wasn’t upon arrival. Everything seemed fine at that point. In fact my horses wereContinue reading “With me.”

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”

A new decade

January 1, 2020 I am glad to wish you all a Happy New Year and even more glad to share that after months of no words, I am back. This year has brought a tough process, yet I have reason to hope that the death of 2019 and the emerging of a new decade bringContinue reading “A new decade”

Eighth

May 1, 2019 I have struggled to write since my last post; it’s been the longest hiatus since I began the blog. It’s not due to lack of activity or material as much as there have been many seeds coming up all over the place with no finished concepts maturing into a blog that wouldContinue reading “Eighth”

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”

Which Way Challenge

This is a fun blog challenge a little out of the scope of green to 100’s usual fare. I was inspired by a great blog I’ve been following (Little Pieces of Me) who did a which way post. The object of Cee’s Which Way Challenge is to capture “the roads, walks, trails, rails, we move from oneContinue reading “Which Way Challenge”
