Each episode will be a conversation intended to encourage you, help you succeed, have fun and grow more confident.

My guests and I will tell stories and share how I/they overcame challenges (like nerves) and how to stay motivated when the inevitable setbacks happen. We'll be talking to coaches and riders from all disciplines and all experience levels.

I also plan to interview folks who will inspire all to go for the gusto and achieve more than we ever thought possible. We'll think, "If they can do it, I can do it."

Might be Painful!

I had a topic come up this week. It’s an important idea that’s often overlooked for two reasons. First, it takes energy and effort to do. Second, it can be a little painful!

I suggest you video your rides and study them before anyone else does.

Most of us tend to shy away from watching our videos because we don’t like how we look or ride, or it’s tough to watch errors happen.

But independent video watching can be a powerful tool in your self-improvement toolbox. That’s what this video is all about.

Fall is an exciting time if you’re about to go to your big, end-of-the-year show.

Of course, you want to do well and want both you and your horse to look good and perform well in the show pen.

Let’s make this last hoorah for the season memorable and successful.

That’s what this video is all about.

When Poor Practice Works

We all have those dreaded mistakes we tend to make over and over. Ugh!

But what if you looked those repeat offenders right in the eye and said, “You don’t scare me, you little twerps!”

That’s what this video is all about.

Ritual or Superstition?

As you know from last week’s video, I’ve been watching Cardinal baseball games.

This time, Adam Wainwright, one of their star pitchers, was warming up to be the starting pitcher for a game.

They put a mic on him while he was in the bullpen warming up his arm so he could talk to the TV audience.

He was great – friendly – warm – joking around!

I want to share another gem of inspiration from Adam Wainwright in this video.

Fist Pump the Victories

It’s baseball mania at our house at the moment, St. Louis Cardinals style. My husband, Tom, and I are fans.

We grew up in Southern Illinois, near St. Louis. We didn’t know each other then, but our families were rabid Cardinal fans – so off we went. It was fun, and my interest isn’t crazed like Tom’s, but I enjoy the games.

They are killing it this year – doing GREAT! They’re number one in their division by several games. They have a rock star home run hitter, Albert Pujols, who’s knocking it out of the park game after game.

The other day, he hit two home runs in a single game and had players score on his other two base hits.

This video is all about what Albert Pujols said during an interview after the game when the sports paparazzi swarmed him!

It’s a tremendous high-performance mindset tip.

This is the first of several I will share with you. His thoughts are so clear and so relevant to what we do with our horses.

Back From Outer Space

It’s great to be back and visiting with you again.

As you know, I’ve been in outer space recovering from Covid. 😊

I told someone recently that it’s like Covid took hold of me and slung me around.

I’m thrilled to say I feel better now. I’m at about 80% back to my regular self. I won’t say ‘old self.’ LOL

This week’s video is all about what I learned from being in the Ozone the past three weeks:
