This is the place where I record my current learning experiences with horses. I’m personally aiming to become an excellent horsewoman, but the nature of horses is that they are truly catalysts for personal development. So, while half of my musings will be from a point of observation and communication with horses, this only reflects the way that I am personally developing. Because of this, it is my hope that you can relate to my blog on whatever level you wish. If you are a fellow horseman-in-training: good to meet you, it's wonderful to be on the same journey! But at the same time, if you are a complete stranger to me or to horses, you are just as welcome. Hopefully this blog will bring you some amusement; even if it is just laughing at how mad we horse people can be!

In this blog, you can find pages about my life so far, mentors, and of course, horses and my adventures with them.

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory..."

What are you shouting about?!

I've been thinking a lot about purpose lately, and more specifically, how does purpose influence our lives? I honestly believe that each of us has a purpose in being alive. A niche, and passion... to put it simply; something that makes our hearts tick.

I generally find that people with purpose have more of a focus. I may not have any knowledge or interest in their particular field, BUT the meaning they find (from pursuing/discovering their purpose) usually encourages me in some way.

Aside from the many things that make me excited about life, my faith in Jesus Christ gives me a lot of purpose. It recently occured to me that the joy I find in my faith is the result of seeing/experiencing something tangible based upon my beliefs. Perhaps 'proof' (or personal experience if you will) is what gives us something to be 'joyful' or purposeful about. Perhaps its what inspires us to press on. Either way... two of the blogs I read today reflected my recent ponderings... namely: God's creation is beautiful. That creation gives me something to sing about.
Matthew 12:34 "...out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks."

I've enjoyed following Priscilla's blog... she's a Home Educated, Christian, Parelli Student based in America. Here's a recent post Priscilla wrote about the beauty of mountains:Priscilla's odyssey

Her blog made me think of this Bible verse:Isaiah 49:13 "Shout for joy, O heavens; rejoice, O earth; burst into song, O mountains!"

In Katie's blog 'For the Love of Life,' I read a post entitled 'The face of Heaven'
