When it comes to barrel racers, some like to deck their horses out in Ed Hardy bling headstalls and breastcollars, some have to wear the same colors to match their horses protective boots and saddle pad, and some, like myself, have “obsessions” with bits, spurs and cowboy boots. My bit and spur obessions range from […]

  In my previous post, Weakness, I showed a bit of my serious side but it is time that you saw the side of me that is showing 87.2% of the time. The spazzy, hot mess me. You should get excited for this story. The scene was reminiscent of Christmas morning in Idaho, only this […]

Previously, we discussed who Buck is. Now we will delve into why I’d choose to ride with him above most others. How is it, that someone, like me, who makes their living riding horses, chooses to attend a clinic in the first place? Some might think I already know enough. I will be the first […]

I would like to consider myself a professional horseman. But the truth is, I’m merely on the journey.  It’s true that I get to spend my days horseback, but just because someone makes a living doing something, doesn’t mean they’re as good at it now, as they will be in 10 years, or even 20. […]

Those of you that know me, know I follow the teachings of Buck Brannaman. One of his famous quotes is: “Horses and life, it’s all the same to me.” I’ve known that quote. And in theory I’ve known what it means. But there’s a difference between what you think you know, and actually putting that […]

A few years ago I was hanging out with the CSI (College of Southern Idaho) rodeo team and there were a handful of Canadian bull riders there.  As the crisp fall evening was approaching a song came over the speakers of their Chrysler Mini Van. This was no chart topping song that makes you want […]
