Sending Christmas Cheer

As I was about to create a fun video for you today for our Trail to 2021 series, I was feeling a little under the weather and not my usual wild elf self. So instead of pushing through to do the video, I’m sending this short audio to you instead.

Fingers crossed that I’ll continue the Trail to 2021 series next week.

And oh my gosh, 2021 is upon us. Can you believe it?

Hi, my friend,

As I was about to create a fun video for you today for our Trail to 2021 series, I was feeling a little under the weather and not my usual wild elf self. So instead of pushing through to do the video, I’m sending this short audio to you instead.

Fingers crossed that I’ll continue the Trail to 2021 series next week.

And oh my gosh, 2021 is upon us. Can you believe it?

But for right now, Nic and I are wishing you and yours a very merry and beautiful Christmas. It truly is one of my favorite times of the year.

How about if you left a wonderful holiday message of good cheer for EVERYONE in our wonderful BS… I mean Barbra Schulte… community. Scroll down and let us hear from you.

See you VERY soon.

Ho-ho-ho and remember to celebrate the reason for the season.

Sending love and holiday cheer your way. This is Barb signing off now. Santa’s picking us up in a minute and Nic’s going to try his hand at flying with reindeer.

Merry Christmas. Leave a message,

  6. Thank you Sandy for bringing awareness to reacting in the moment in the show pen. Being present to support your horse is what showing is all about. Team work.
    Thank you Ladies
    Merry Merry Christmas

  8. Thanks Sandi & Barb! I truly appreciate the comment about ‘riding the horse you have’! I think I tend to get so focused on MY PLAN that I forget to check in with my horse & determine if that’s OUR BEST PLAN for that particular day & time.
    Wishing you gals the best of the holiday season & looking forward to more of your tips in the new year!! 🎄🎉😄🐴

  10. As I watched my copper red Quarter Horse at play yesterday as the sun set behind him, I realized again what a beautiful creation God has given us in our horses. Watching Dancer (his barn name – yes, we have heard ALL the reindeer jokes) I thought of Advent. In Dancer, I saw the joy he found in just being himself and rejoicing in the day, the peace being with him brings me, the hope I have for us to grow in our horse-human relationship, and the love he gives so freely;and that I have for him and all God’s creatures. Interesting to think of Jesus being born in a stable, the peace He brings to us and the peace many of us still find in our own stables. Merry Christmas to Barb and Family and to all the BS Family.

I’m sorry to hear you are feeling a little “under the weather” but you were smart to take care of yourself so you can feel good for the upcoming days!! You’ve “given” us so much of your time, your fun personality, your expertise in training horses, and encouragement for daily life!! Thank you!

    I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!! Barb and Sandy,
    I absolutely love the effort you make to share your incredible skills, experience and wisdom with others. This year has been an opportunity for growth and I have been very inspired by your thoughtful words and amazing examples. Learning together with others has been enriching. I have treasured the tips and comments from everyone in the community,
    from the details of what to do in the arena to the funny jokes and laughter. It’s great to face upsets and challenges with “no problem” and refocus. You’re awesome.
    My best wishes to all,
