I like to pause for a moment and take a breath before I enter into a relationship that requires attention at a different mindset.
The evenings are amazing for weather. My husband and I spend a lot of our evenings with our horses. When we have unsaddled our horses they get to eat green grass for a few minutes. Green grass in middle of September? We had 11 inches of rain in a matter of a few days a […]
Yes, that was me. When I learned to ride 18 years ago it was not without tension and a tight stomach-ache. Before I got on the horse I always had to excuse myself and head to the washroom.. Three years ago it ended. I am now very comfortable on a horse. I still overthink getting […]
