A Moment For Eternity

A Moment For Eternity

I sat with my back against the wood panels of the round pen, taking in everything that had just happened and reflecting on my life these past few years. When I lost Eternity, we were living back in the city and were finding it difficult […]

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 from the tent, I inhaled the sweet, crisp air with a grateful heart. For over six years, my heart has longed for the peaceful serenity of the countryside and this weekend, I was able to once again revel in its beauty. Last week we decided to take a leap of faith and make the move to Springville, confident that God will continue to guide and direct us, even though we do not have all of the answers. As I stood looking at the reflections of the pond, I realized that all of my worries had washed away… there were no traces of stress, no anxieties that weighed upon my heart.

Wildspirite

On March 26, 2005, my life as I once knew it had changed forever. In the previous weeks, it was brought to my attention that wild horse herds were being swept from their lands and many of their lives ended at the slaughter house. Stallions, mares, and even their foals were dwindling from the open range and met with a horrific ending. At a mere eleven years old, I decided to take it upon myself to save these majestic creatures… even if only one. Within only a couple of hours of research online, I discovered a little bay Mustang filly who was available for adoption through Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue in Lancaster, CA. Her name was Eternity and at just one glance, I knew that she was the one for me. (more…)
