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!

Weekly Task Challenge: Emotional FItness

If you don't know what to do, have little time, or just feeling stuck, try the weekly task as a way to at least do something with your horse! (It just may motivate you to do more.)

This week's task is to evaluate and improve your emotional fitness. Sit down and reflect on three instances that you find difficult in your life, then identify three instances where you feel you find ease in. Take each item and evaluate your emotional fitness in the situation. For the difficult times, list two things you can do to improve your emotional fitness, for the easy times, list two things that you believe make you successful. These experiences can be horse focused or not, your choice. Either way, your overall emotional fitness affects your horsemanship as it is just another relationship in your life, an opportunity to communicate, a leadership experience, and so much more!
