Lord give my hands
supple strength
to guide my horse smoothly.
My heart calm courage
to let my horse run his hardest
and do his best.
Protect my horse, and let me
that he is a living, breathing
partner, and not just a barrel
Let me love my fellow
barrel racers
and remember that even though
we are competitors,
we are also sisters and brothers.
Let me put every run, and my life
in your hands.

Just A Horse


From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a horse," or,
"that's a lot of money for "just a horse".
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or
the costs involved for "just a horse." Some of my proudest moments
have come about with "just a horse."
Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a horse," but I did
not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about
by "just a horse,' and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just
a horse" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a horse," then you will probably understand
phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."
"Just a horse" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and
pure unbridled joy.
"Just a horse" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of "just a horse" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a horse" but an embodiment of all
the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the
pure joy of the moment.
"Just a horse" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away.
I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a horse"
but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a woman."
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a horse" just smile, because they
"just" don't understand.

"I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me"
Philippians 4:13

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Hebrews 13:5

True Cowgirls Love The Lord Jesus With All They Got

Therefore you have been raised up with Christ, Keep seekining the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above not on the earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ who is our life is revealed then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.

Waitin' (just relax)

Sometimes it seems as if you are always waiting waiting for the next weekend, the next sunny day, the next text, the next class, the next...... Why do you always have to be waitin' why can't you just enjoy the moment step back and relax and just breathe so you don't have to wait and continue waiting. I think the reason we just can't stop and enjoy the moment is because of are busy life....its always go go go! We want it fast for some reason. Thats one reason Ii love to ride horses; because everything just slows down it just you the horse and the Montana Mountians up there im free from the hussle bussle of today busy seduale its so nice I love it. So today take some time-take a walk, a ride, a drive- whatever it is to just relax and get away and live in the moment and not wait....

Winter Agian

Well my hopes of an early spring were dashed Sunday With the snow falling all day at our mountian home *Sigh*. Needless to say I couldn't help but just love the snow, it made a perfect white blanket over the Montana landscape makeing me rember just how wonderful winter can be even if I can't ride for a couple months still.

For all you riders that live up in the mountians and you can't ride in the winter because of slick trails and roads, I suggust grooming if you are tired of not doing anything with your horse, go out and groom im not just talking a little brushing groom from mussle to tail, clean hoofves and brust the mane and tail till there are no knots, Your horsde will love thisd and you will bond closer to your horse plus this will keep them use to having hands on them making the frist spring ride easier.

I Just Now getting back :)

Well its been awhile sence i've gotten on here, but i've found some time in between school and LIFE which seems to be busy as it can be... So here I am sitting at the computer at school blogging and the thought comes to mind what should I blog about well im not sure then A song comes on Cryin for me bu toby keith the a thought comes to mind anyone of the people we love and are loved by could be gone just like his friend in that song so mabey we should all just whoa for a second and think about it, that friend that your not getting along with so u decided not to talk to them could get in a car aciedent on there way home from school or work and be gone just like that so do you realy want to hold a grude about somthing you two don't see eye to eye on. Or mabey its your perents they wouldn't let you do somthing so you get mad at them and then somthing happens and there gone how would you feel? So take a moment to think about thouse people that you love even though you don't see eye to eye on every thing life is way to short to hold a grudge.
