This weekend started off with an early morning haul out on Friday from home base in Wimberley, and included an obligatory stop at Buccee's for fuel of the truck and human variety. I'm fairly new to the Austin Eventing team, so I'm still blown away by what a well oiled...

Yoga for Riders, Not Yoga on Horses

There seems to be a trend emerging that involves doing yoga poses on bareback horses.

It was one year ago.  One kick to the knee started a series of events that have led to this moment.  It was a reminder, a wake-up call, a call to action, and a humbling experience all wrapped up in a quick trip to the ER.

Did you take the time to watch it?  You should, it's pretty amazing.  It is one of those songs that gives you warm fuzzies and puts a smile on your face.  

You know what else gives you warm fuzzies and puts a smile...

This poem was shared during sivasana after a gentle yoga class held at Turtles Yoga and Wellness.   I love the poem and the message.   Enjoy!
 



“Dear Human:
You've got it all wrong.

You didn't come here to master unconditional love. This is where you c...

Being grateful has been the topic of many conversations this week/month/year.  I know it has been a minute since I have written a post, though please rest assured I have thought about many, many things to write about.  I suppose I could say I am grateful for your under...

Since arriving at Tryon International Equestrian Center in North Carolina I have been meditating every morning.  We have arrived for the American Eventing Championships despite terrible tragedies of flooding and destruction in our home state of Texas.  Every step along...
