As things are winding down here for the winter, I can only look back on my 10 weeks here so far and think how lucky I was to be staying on the ranch, and to witness all that happens here. There have been some amazing things like watching Pat do his cow work lessons with his mastery students, Linda giving lessons on contact, the Saddle Fitting workshop and the Performance Summit. In addition to all the Fast Track courses and the two week confidence and finesse courses, there has been so much to see and even more to soak in.
Having Sienna here with me has made it
even more special. Last weekend the weather was so amazing, in the 70's with a slight breeze. Sienna and I were out exploring the ranch and we went cantering up this gorgeous green meadow........there might as well have been a choir singing in the background as it was one of those moments you just want to hang on to for ever. Luckily I have been able to capture this memory on film
thanks to Mackenzie Kincaid, my new friend and fabulous photographer. You can see some of her work here.
I have been letting Sienna graze more and more these days as she has not been on grass for two years, and she's very likely to end up on pasture when we find a place to live. I got permission to start letting her out in one of the pastures here since all the courses have finished and it's very quiet here at the ranch,and I couldn't help think that this is how it's meant to be. My heart felt good watching Sienna just be a horse and exploring her new surroundings. I think she enjoyed it too, you can see more pics here.
Now I just need to get the hubby here with the dogs and Sammy, and figure out what's best for Beau. I miss them all so much, but it's worth the wait, and I know they are going to love it here.
