Ginger

I have been a horse breeder for 10 years however due to various circumstances, that chapter of my life has been closed. While it is a great loss, I choose to see it as a new beginning. I look forward to changing my focus on that of breeding to personal development in the world of horses. I have reduced my herd to five mature horses and a filly, just born on March 31, 2012. My goals are to work on my skills as a horse woman in a way that honors the horse and helps me to fully realize my potential in achieving so much more with my herd than is possible with traditional training methods. I have over the years experienced what many would consider, quite a few "out of the ordinary" experiences with them and it is my hope to expand on these experiences on a much deeper level. I believe we can learn so much from them as human beings and I have personally experienced joy and release on days when I really needed it, just from being in their presence. Horses help us to see who we really are in so many ways and I believe can help us improve as human beings in grace, kindness, truth, and mutual respect. This blog is about my journey and experiences as I set out to find that deeper level of connection with my herd.

The Gifts of True Intimacy

I haven’t been able to spend time out and about with my herd the past week due to the rainy days and other activities in my life.  As I was playing with my little dog today it hit me how much I am missing them.  Though I have always loved them dearly, they have become … Continue reading

Embraced

Meditating With My Horses Life got busy….and it had been a couple of weeks that I had not been able to spend any time with Amber or the herd.  As the old cliché’ goes….absence makes the heart grow fonder as is visible in this video.  While Rosie chose not to join us today as we mediated … Continue reading

Making Progress

I moved Amber back in with Rosie and Lady today, having decided to do most of Amber’s work primarily alone, and in the round pen, away from the herd.  We went on a very long trail ride this past weekend which helped us to get passed the “bump” in the road.  We reconnected as a … Continue reading

Keep Trying Till You Get It Right

Every horse is different.  From their personalities to the way they learn.  In my herd of three for example, Rosie has a “can do” happy go lucky, what’s next personality.  Lady has a “I don’t want to be bothered so I’ll just stand over here in the barn and watch attitude”.  Amber is in between.  … Continue reading

My Horse Drew a Picture For Me

Today when I went in to sit with my herd, Amber and Rosie were right there in my space as soon as I sat down.  The matriarch, Lady, was a few feet away, and just watched.  Both were particularly mouthy today, each licking an arm.  I had to move them out of my space quite a … Continue reading

Today I was Clearly Amber’s Chosen Herd

Today I didn’t have much time to spend in sharing space with my herd but…Lady and Rosie walked off within the first five minutes to the other side of the pasture.  I wasn’t even going to go today, but, when I looked over at the pasture from my back yard, Amber was looking directly at me, … Continue reading

Sharing Space

Dog and I have now “shared space” with my herd on about 4 separate occasions.  What I have noticed is that we are becoming much less of a novelty and I have certainly seen the relationship between dog and the herd deepen very quickly.  Amber has even given him a great back scratch which he … Continue reading

Hanging Out With My Horses

I decided today to just hang out with a few of my horses.  I needed a little R&R and I am getting ready to start a summer workshop with them.  I brought a chair into their pasture, my tablet to read, a cold drink, sunshades, a hat and one apple.  While there were three horses … Continue reading
