When I am not working at my clinic or puttering around my home, I am at the barn with my horses. They are a very large part of my life.
This is Honey (A Crusing Impulse), my 7 year old QH mare. She comes trotting to the gate when she sees my car drive up to the barn. I trust her and she trusts me. We have grown together. She was an un-broke 2 year old and I was a brand new rider when I bought her and we began to learn together 5 years ago. She started with me on my journey to live my dream of riding and competing with horses.
Love (Lil Miss Blackjac) fulfilled my dream of learning and competing at reining. She has been an incredibly patient and talented teacher. Before her, I never would have dreamed that I could be in an arena doing sliding stops, rollbacks, and spins. She is so very gentle, yet at times has an attitude that reminds me why some riders choose not to deal with mares. (I personally love mares with attitude and my horses have all been mares!)
