Find your Tribe - Art connects us All

Either Directly or Indirectly art has given me more than the gift of beauty and inspiration.

 Art has connected me to some amazing people and some of my most treasured friends.

My preferred art form and one at which for the past 15 years I have earned my living is “Fine Art Photography”.  Not just any fine art photography, my specialty and number one passion is…

Is My Right Leg Shorter Than My Left Leg?

Is My Right Leg Shorter Than My Left Leg?    

Last Sunday, for my ride on Cider using my new Pegasus Butterfly saddle, I added both the ¼” and 3/16” bridging shims to my Contender II BOT/ThinLine pad.  This made the pad thicker, which meant Shannon had trouble getting Cider’s string girth to the bottom hole of the billet straps.  If we had used any girth but a mohair string girth we would have been in real trouble, but since the string girth has some stretch to it Shannon finally got…

Hope comes riding…

Well, as the dust settles from the US election, some are left standing with their hopes dashed - others had their hope stirred.

Hope for peace, prosperity, rescue…

I love the words of the late Chuck Colson:  “Salvation will not arrive on Air Force One.”

Removed from his seat…

I May Have Found a Partial Solution

I May Have Found a Partial Solution    


In my last blog, I revealed my latest problems with my riding.  Since I could not get myself satisfactorily centered in my new Pegasus Butterly saddle, I blamed the whole problem on my MS messing up my proprioceptive system.  But then I thought further on my problem, and I came up with the idea that the shims in the Pegasus pad may not have worked satisfactorily in filling up Bingo’s (and Mia’s) sway back or in ameliorating Cider‘s…

5 Things I Have learned From My Horse

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Almost eight months ago I met Austin for the first time.  To say I had some doubts at first is an understatement.  He was so lovely, so well trained; I was convinced my inexperience would ruin him for good.  It has taken us a little time to get to know one another, but I can honestly say that we are a match made in heaven.  Austin's sweet nature, sincerity, patience and bravery has…

I Developed a New Problem with my Riding

I Developed a New Problem with my Riding    

You would think that with over 45 years experience as a rider, that I would never come up with a new, seemingly unsolvable problem.  However, with my Multiple Sclerosis, plus my horrible misadventure with a new MS drug, that is exactly what happened to me.

I started shifting my whole body to the left.

As you know I bought a new saddle, the Pegasus Butterfly Claudia jumping saddle.  I love this saddle, I can get my seat really…
