About Me

North Lawrence, New York, United States
I can be described as lover of life, an animal lover, and lover of education. I am constantly striving for knowledge and learning opportunities. I've been around horses my entire life. I enjoy working with horses and their human partners through natural horsemanship philosophies, natural balance bare foot hoof care, reiki, red-light therapy, essential oils, aromatherapy, crystal healing, chromotherapy, flower essences, and more. I am a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher who offers treatments for people, horses, dogs, cats, and other creatures great and small. I also teach Reiki classes for those interested in learning how to treat themselves, their loved ones, and even their animals! Natural Horse Lover Farm is located in Northern New York between the St. Lawrence River and Adirondack Mountains. Heaven on Earth. naturalhorseloverfarm.com

Mini WW Update and PSRG Reminder


My weight loss journey is going well despite having company, business lunches, and the like. I won't say it has been easy but, I am pushing onward towards my goal (which is a long way off but well worth the trip). (So far, as of 6/12/10 I've lost 44.2 lbs.) I also wanted to share this before/after pic above (before on the left, after on the right) and let you know about the Plus Sized Riders group!

The Plus Sized Riders Group (PSRG) was established to help bring together horse lovers of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds who desire a healthier lifestyle and are looking for support through their journey. Topics include general health, weight loss, healthier living, medical issues, and more. These topics are coupled with the added joy of horses and how our health affects our experiences with them. It has been designed to be a group that enables support through learning and sharing. Any weight loss program or exercise program is open for discussion. Any horse-related topics are welcomed. We also play a weekly game called Healthy Living and Horses! It starts on Saturday! The object is to get moving and stay motivated by playing this silly game...compete against fellow PSRG members and earn as many carrots as you can each week while living healthy and having fun with your horse! Come join us! http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/plus_sized_riders/
