Throwback Thursday


IT’S THROWBACK Thursday and this photo is from 2009 when I danced for a month with the black mare Ana, so called the “”problem mare””.
She wasn’t a problem mare – the horse is never the problem. Amazingly her owner realized that during this ride, that Ana needed a professional owner – and she, the owner, needed a more mature horse. After my rejection, Ana got a new home at my friend and professional dressage competitior.

Today this talented horse is trained like she’s supposed to and shines like the star she is.

Face your needs, and walk the path that fits you.
