About me...

Blogging since 2004, before blogging was cool...

My training diaries have been what I call "educational therapy". It helps me to write things down so I can get a better view of what happened. It also helps me to go back and read what transpired months ago. Sometimes this is the only way you know you are making progress!

Training Diaries

For years I kept a handwritten notebook training diary under the front seat of my truck. I started doing this back in the 90's. Even then I did the majority of my riding all alone with no feedback. I often felt like...read more

Dog Trophy Room

To say I've been blessed is an understatement! I look back at my dog show career, as short as it has been, and am thrilled with what I have accomplished so far. What makes it even more special is that I share the journey with my best friends...view my trophy room

Horse Trophy Room

My first and longest love has always been the horses. I started out in 1988 with a dream and a goal, and in nearly 40 years I have achieved far more than I could have ever imagined. There have been amazing ups and downs, but I can say I never gave up...view my trophy room

I am a musician/equestrian/artist.

Former band director turned computer geek!

Can you say RIGHT brained? I don't even own a left brain. Thank God for calculators.

Yes, it's worth it.

One day at a time - this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone;
and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come.
Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering
