Breaking Trail

January 27th, 2012 at 08:00am Under Horse+ Relationship+ With ourselves

We had our first major snow fall in the state I call home. It was a sudden dumping of about a foot of beautiful fluffy white powder. The air was so cold and dry that the snow stayed like loose sugar. It covered the hills surrounding the ranch where I keep my mare, leaving only […]

Galloping Bareback

December 1st, 2011 at 08:00am Under Divine Cowgirl+ Horse+ Relationship

I had the most wonderful ride on my mare today. For the first time in 40 years I galloped bareback. That may sound silly to some, but to me it was a joyous moment. I have ran her frequently out on the trails which are our favorite place to ride, just never bareback like I […]

More on Being a Better Person…

November 21st, 2011 at 02:04pm Under Divine Cowgirl+ Horse+ With ourselves

For as far back in my life as I can remember I have been entranced by, in awe of and smitten by the beauty and wonder of our equine companions, whom we share space with on this fair earth. From the soft sensitive muzzle to the flowing lines of a silken tail, I find nothing […]

A Better Person

November 16th, 2011 at 08:00am Under Divine Cowgirl+ Horse+ Relationship+ With others+ With ourselves

It has occurred to me that spending time with my mare tends to make me a better person, a better human being. It took many years of hanging out with her to learn some valuable life lessons. That part of my education began about 7 years ago when she and I first met. At our […]

Dillon

November 7th, 2011 at 08:00am Under Horse+ Relationship+ With others+ With ourselves

There is so much I could say about Dillon. He was my first love, all 1000 pounds of young energy and beauty. He was the perfect horse for me. I remember how we used to run like the wind all over our pastures and down the country roads we lived on, the dust flying from […]

Grooming

October 24th, 2011 at 08:53am Under Divine Cowgirl+ Horse+ Inward Journey+ Relationship+ With ourselves

I approach my beautiful dark bay mare in her pen. She knickers a soft greeting to me. I take her fly mask off, revealing her big brown eyes looking back at me. I love taking the mask off, exposing her eyes, like opening the window to her tender soul. We say our helloes. A little […]

Water Crossing

October 3rd, 2011 at 03:00pm Under Divine Cowgirl+ Horse+ Relationship+ With others

The ranch where I board my big bay mare with the soft brown eyes has a small trail course. One of the obstacles we get to practice on is a water hazard. It’s a small 6×6 puddle in a concrete liner. The first time I tried to get my mare to cross that small puddle […]

Still Point

March 14th, 2011 at 08:00am Under Horse+ Relationship+ Uncategorized+ With others+ With ourselves

There is innocence when we stop to rest.  There is a place inside time where all is still, where motion stops and we pause. In order for us to be awake to the moment we must pause – stop – allow rest from our minds and from physical doing.  How often in a 24 hours […]

Just say NO to the diet industry

January 17th, 2011 at 08:00am Under Books, Interviews and more+ Horse+ Inward Journey+ Relationship+ With our bodies

Horses are grazers.  They do best with many small meals over the course of the day if they are kept in a barn or paddock or a rather constant nibble out on pasture.  Yes, there are some horses that can over eat if presented with too much rich pasture; however most horses know when to […]

Leadership or Dominance

September 27th, 2010 at 08:00am Under Horse+ Relationship+ With others

There seems to be confusion about what leadership is and is not. In horse and human relationships our idea of leadership seems to show up. ‎”Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.” ~Pema Chodron Our culture has been transitioning between dependence, independence and now interdependence in relationships.  As […]
