“THE GIFT OF ALL THEY TEACH US”

On Day One of the Twelve Days of Christmas our horses give us the gift of all they teach us.
What we learn from a horse spans the lessons we are meant
to learn personally as well as knowledge about horses.

This past year, I learned that now more than ever, I need to continue to improve my physical conditioning 
… and how much that affects my riding 
I am somewhat fit, but surely I have more to go.

“Rock N Roll”

I had one of the most incredible experiences of my career a few weeks ago in Inkerman, Ontario Canada.

My hat goes off to Lorie Duff who created a format of learning, sharing and killer FUN for everyone … audience members and 12 fab riders who were coached by four awesome Canadian coaches. I had the honor of sharing mental skills training and purpose driven training with coaches, riders and observers alike. The best part is that the format allowed all the coaches and riders to openly learn from each other. I learned so much … and the best part is … I came away energized and inspired.

“Something New on the Way”

I have been thinking about updating how I deliver my newsletter articles to you and I have an idea. Now I would love to know if you think my plan is a good idea.

Instead of one long newsletter with all of the articles sent at the same time, I would spread them out over the month. So for example, one week you would receive a Personal Performance article (by itself) and the next week a Horsemanship article. For those who ride cutting horses, you would receive a cutting article during a separate week as well.

“The Magic of Time Shared”

Recently I had the great pleasure to participate in a Women’s Retreat in California. We had so much fun and we all came away truly amazed and moved by our experience.

We came together via a mutual friend, Sandy Collier. We all had horses and Sandy as a common link between us. What was so magical is how the entire experience unfolded so naturally on its own. Many of us shared our varied areas of expertise in an easy kind of way (no pressure of any kind) … topics included finances, life coaching, belly dancing (-: wine pairing, fly fishing, painting on canvas, anti-aging, self-defense, marketing and pilates.
