It Takes Courage

horse sense

It never ceases to amaze me that if we are open to the learning and willing to see what horses can show us about ourselves, they willingly share their wisdom. They will reflect exactly what you need to see.

If you are brave enough to ask and ready to explore you, please contact Anne.



RCP_6193 Molly and GunnersHorses often see change as danger, but can easily get used to lots of changes in their world – one of the keys for survival. For humans, change is the only constant in life.  We change almost moment to moment, as is everything around us.

Reflect on this when you feel stuck:  nothing ever stays the same.  Think about the possibilities, not the limitations.

Being human

don't forget you're human

Stop Hidden Quarry

Perhaps this isn’t happening in your backyard yet but wouldn’t you want support from surrounding communities?

Please support the CRC to stop construction of a quarry which really results in destruction.

Don’t miss the donut by looking through the hole.

Just Being

just beingIn-between moments
what about not connecting with anyone in our “in-between” moments?  what about realizing that there are actually no in-between moments at all? What about being in touch with who is on THIS end of the line , not the other end? What about calling ourselves up for a change, and checking in, seeing what we are up to?  What about just being in touch with how WE are feeling, even in those moments when we may be feeling numb, or overwhelmed, or bored, or disjointed, or anxious or depressed, or needing to get one more thing done?
