What’s possible for you?

I’m with my girl Rachel who’s been a member of our family for 30 years. We raised her. She’s a Shorty Lena mare and the number one girl who raised 15 fabulous cutting babies for us.

She’s retired now, of course, but I’m not retired. But the biggest thing that’s different about Rachel and me is as she gets older, she gets a little thinner as I get older, it’s not so easy to stay slim!

I have a special message for you today, and Rachel’s my partner, here to help me share it with you.

Hey, it’s Barb.

I’m with my girl Rachel who’s been a member of our family for 30 years. We raised her. She’s a Shorty Lena mare and the number one girl who raised 15 fabulous cutting babies for us.

She’s retired now, of course, but I’m not retired. But the biggest thing that’s different about Rachel and me is as she gets older, she gets a little thinner as I get older, it’s not so easy to stay slim!

I have a special message for you today, and Rachel’s my partner, here to help me share it with you.

I’m here under this mushroom tree because this is the tree where Rachel hung out for 30 years. I have so many pictures of her standing under this tree. She always found great comfort here. When she had her first baby, she came trotting up from the pasture and went right for this tree.

This tree represents a lot of strength, particularly its trunk.

I think that you know I have a great passion for understanding human potential and aligning our mind or body or spirit to bring out the best of us? To have a great time and do great things with and for our horses and each other. The study of human potential and sharing it with you has been my journey.

In this video, I want to give you a perspective about confidence.

I call it confidence because that’s the best word that I can think of to describe it.

When I first went to the Human Performance Institute in Orlando, FL, with Dr.Loehr, I learned about performance under pressure. I have never stopped teaching that ever since. It’s great information for when you’re on your horse, and you’re getting ready to ride, or if you’re not on your horse. It helps you get into a state of calmness and focus and being in the moment that allows you to connect with your horse.

But over time, I’ve also come to know there’s another kind of confidence, and I call it Confidence Within. Here’s what I mean. What do we think about ourselves and our ability to ride – in our most private thoughts and our heart and soul? Or our ability to manifest our dreams? How do we handle really tough times? How do we keep going and not give up,

And on the other side, how do we keep giving ourselves messages that we’re worthy – and extraordinary – and trust our journey? I call that Confidence Within.

It’s getting to the end of the year. I thought this would be a great time to do a series of weekly videos, as well as I’m going to do a free workshop on Confidence Within and growing it. During that course, we’re going to reflect on where we are – where we’re going – how to grow more Confidence Within – and what that means to our journey with our horse.

I’m excited about it, so I wanted you to know that the Free Workshop will start on November 2nd.

If you’re interested in joining me, make sure you get your seat by clicking the link in this video or the button below the video. We’ll have a great time.

I think you’ll enjoy reflecting on this year – looking towards next year – and staying aligned with your own heart, your worthiness, your potential.

Let me know what you think, and don’t forget to click the link if you want to make sure you get your seat!

  2. This sounds like a good course. Not sure if it’s confidence, hope or faith but I need something to help me persevere with a plan for the future of my unpredictable mare, who I’ve stopped riding for safety reasons.

  4. This is spot on and so needed, on so many levels….horses and life.

  8. Awesome 💜 Looking forward to the workshop! I grow so much as a rider and as an individual listening to your Wisdom. Raven breaths a sigh of relief every time I learn from you…I can almost hear her say… “oh thank goodness, you must have been listening to that Barb lady again, now we can get somewhere”… 🤭

    Can’t wait! 😁 What a great way to wrap up the year.

    Katrina & Raven

  10. Barb,
    So cool to meet Rachel! I can see she is an “old soul” from the gentleness and wisdom in her eyes. I can tell you are as special to her as she is to you. Thank you for giving her love and a great retirement, not all horses are lucky to be so loved. It brought me joy to see you two together and hear her story.

  12. Thank you for sharing this story of you and your mare, the relationship you have with her and the reflections that lift all of our spirits and give us confidence in all areas of life, but especially where it means the most…the connection between us and our horses that is so fulfilling.

Tell me what you're thinking...
