When I Ride…

Working with my ancestors


“Friendship with oneself is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.”
—Eleanor Roosevelt

I have just finished a week alone in my horse trailer while working on an obstacle course at a new riding location for clients. Hours alone with your own thoughts… thanking the ancestors for teaching me self sufficiency, knowing when to ask and appreciating help from time to time, I felt like my grandparents and dad were working with me side by side. Wild birds came to visit and offer encouragement. I welcomed them with hands full of bird seed and buckets of water.
This morning as I feed the horses the last of the alfalfa and put buckets in the trailer and secure dishes and pots and pans, I stand up, survey what I’ve done, take a deep breath and give thanks for my excellent health, strong mind and desire for great things in my life.
Just a quick post from Dripping Springs,Texas.
