Homecoming

Homecoming

It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks and time has seemed to slip away, causing a delay in blogging our latest adventures. On July 13th, we ventured out to Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue to pick up Honor, as well as Dahlia and KoKo, the two fillies […]

Honorable Mention

Honorable Mention

We were eager to return to Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue following their Open House Adoption Day, where we met Nalan, the liver chestnut filly that captivated Alex’s heart. She was all we could talk about leading up to our second visit to the ranch. We left not-so-bright and early […]

A Day To Remember

A Day To Remember

A Moment For Eternity

A Moment For Eternity

Soaring To New Heights

Soaring To New Heights

Our second horsemanship session began straight after lunch. Each of us was to halter our horse and lead him back to the arena to play with all of the obstacles that had been set up. Chris began with telling us that our assignment for this […]

Meet Your Partner

Meet Your Partner

The morning came early as the sun began peeking out from behind the mountains, coloring the ranch in beautiful pastel shades. I awoke to the melodious songs of the birds and the trickle of the spring water making it’s way into the pond. As I emerged […]
