I live outside of the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, Texas. My dog Otis, my American Quarter Horse, LB Blues Clues, also known here as “Minnow” and a bunch of other horses, live on a ranch where we practice healthy land stewardship over the Onion Creek recharge zone. Riding horses and teaching horsemanship in this part of the world is a blessing and I love sharing it with others.
I am a road runner of sorts and spend a lot of time competing in competitive trail rides where I also hold a senior judges’ card and am a clinician. I explore the world and enjoy hours in the saddle, training trail horses in this part of Texas. I have completed the Colorado Trail, a 500 mile trail from Denver to Durango, Colorado. Long distance horse trips are a new passion. I love to take pictures and carry a camera with me most of the time. They figure prominantly into this blog.
When I ride, I contemplate the people in my life, meditate on what my purpose on earth could be and my relationship with the Creator. I write about my travels and steps taken toward the goals I have set for myself.
I love to write and carry a small notebook to write in. I am currently working on a western novel and a “how to” book that is associated with horses. It is important to me to enjoy each day of my life, I practice an attitude of gratitude and look for the lesson in everything.
