A few of you might have been wondering after such an amazingly successful first half of 2023 out competing in Working Equitation and Ranch Versatility with my very special stallion Silver Big Stretch (Zeus) why things are been so quiet more recently. We also very sadly weren't able to make it to Cow Girls Gathering which was such a shame as we were so looking forward to seeing so many of you.
Unfortunately life through me some very curved balls which resulted in me having to step out of the saddle for awhile, much to both mine and Zeus's disappointment. Its been tough seeing him standing eagerly at the gate each day hoping I would take him for a ride yet me personally having no capacity to do so.
Thankfully for me things will be back on track soon and both Zues and I are very excited to getting back out and about soon. I know I have been very blessed to have had some special horses in my life however this special boy is certainly a once in a lifetime one for me. Even though he is now a mature breeding stallion his most favourite place in the world is hanging out with me. He doesn't mind if its just chilling out at the stables getting a brush, strolling down the rode on a quiet trail ride or out & about competing or a clinics. As long as he is by my side he is happy. How do I know you might ask? He is my heart horse and Im his heart human. I feel it in every moment Im with him.
You only need to see us together to get a glimpse of the bond between us. Those of you who have been blessed enough to have your soul horse will know exactly what I mean as its hard to find the right words to describe the connection.
