When picking your way down a steep, loose rocked, switch-backed and narrow trail, it is oh so tempting to look down. It is hard to look forward to the next step.   Galloping up to an imposing, high jump, it is so very easy to look at the rail, and unnatural to look up and […]

My husband and I are homebodies, as a result our horses are too.  However, I am never uncomfortable with taking one of our ranch horses to “town.”  Our older horses have a solid foundation of long slow range miles.  When starting colts we head outside the corrals and put cattle in front of them, as soon […]

My parents and I took a trip to Pueblo, Colorado in the summer of 1988. I had just graduated high school at the end of May. We found ourselves pulling up to the NHSRA finals in a 1976 Chevy pickup and a 16 foot bumper pull trailer. I was there to compete in the boys […]
