Its time to move beyond the fences that have been holding me back... time to break free and live my life everyday instead of waiting for tomorrow to start being me!

I am a wife, a mother and a professional equestrian who is looking forward to finding the health and energy it takes to be great at all three again!

    I know you don't know me but I want to go with you to Mackinaw .. and do the Horse thing... pleaseeeeee!!! Jeanne vouch for me!!!! lol.. ok.. I do love going up that way. My mum lives in the Tawas area along with my other rellies....although I was up there twice last year it looks like I'll have to stay closer to home. I was thinking Yellowstone National Park for my birthday in July ( but the Island horse thing rocks! )

    Are you going on vacation? There is a gal at the ranch that is working with a 7 month filly, that has a stall right next to my Buddy. She is the cutest thing.
