Now I know that the saying "Time flies when you're having fun" is true! I can't believe that it's mid January. We are preparing for a horse show on the 22nd, and there has been a LOT of progress made in my riding. Since I moved Falcao d... Read more

The clinic was a long week, but oh my, I can't believe how much I have learned. My eating was either way under or right on spec, so I guess it hasn't been a bad week. I am stiff from all the exercise. 7 lessons in 5 days! I can't b... Read more

It started out innocently enough. COntinuing with the shoulder in work, some canter work. Then she had me canter and do a flying change. No problem, we've done them before. Another diagonal, change, THEN ANOTHER on the same diagonal, and ano... Read more

All I can say is "WOW!" I've ridden with this teacher before and always been a little puddle when she was done with us. Don't get me wrong, I was tired when we finished, but now washed out. A BIG difference from early last year when I rod... Read more

Since my fall 7 weeks ago, I have come to realize how much I owe to myself to finish this journey and give myself time to do things that I enjoy. I hae moved Falcao down to Sonoita, and this means a minimum of a half day each time I go down... Read more

The trip to Grand Canyon on the train was great. We got a lot of walking around the canyon, and enjoyed the time together. We spent 4 hours shopping the stores in Sedona. A lot of fun, and a lot of walking, including hills. Managed to avoid ... Read more

After helping Judy and the vet with the horse at the rescue that went down, I had a chance to ride Falcao. I am amazed at how well my new body allows me to ride. I hear it all the time. "I don't need to lose weight, it's the judges that a... Read more

My Pilates instructor has yelled at me for it, my personal trainer has yelled at me for it, and I am feeling the effects of ignoring it. What? Not taking a rest day. This week it's been hard to think about a rest day. The championships a... Read more

It's been a bit (2 weeks) since my last post, and I can report that it has been hard to get onto Spark. Nothing wrong with my computer, but my schedule makes it hard to sit down long enough to do this. I have been working hard on getting r... Read more

Still trying to come to terms with the limits I have imposed on me. Who wrote the rule that September must be limiting for me? This time last year I was limited after surgery on my knee. This year it's Valley Fever. NOT FAIR! This morni... Read more

You know, sometimes you wake up feeling down, icky and just not very pleased with the world. It's too hot, the stomach is rolling, the construction is in progress without making much of it (progress, that is). All of us have had a morning like... Read more
