The loss of a GREAT horsewoman...and person. Terri Moulton

I met Terri Moulton when I was starting off into my adventure of breeding Paint horses.  She owned Paint Me A Dream Horse Farm and I had fallen for her black and white stallion known as Romeo.  I wanted one of his babies so we had decided to breed our mare Lacy to him.  Terri was fantastic about helping me through all that needed to be done.  Although I have had horses the majority of my life, the breeding aspect was all new to me.  She quickly became a friend and confidant and helped me more with things in life other than the horses.  Her heart was so open to all creatures big and small.  I cannot say enough good things about such a wonderful person.  To have her and her wonderful daughter who was just like her mom in so many ways stolen from us by a viscious attack while they were doing a favor for a neighbor is just insane.  I will never understand this world we now live in.. when things from a home are more worth the lives of two wonderful people.  The sudden loss of such a great person and friend is a lot to deal with.  I hope the people that did this pay...and pay dearly.  I'm not one to be hateful but at this moment...I cannot help it.

Good-bye Terri (and Stacey) please watch over all of us and enjoy our charges that are with you on the Rainbow Bridge.. give Romeo a hug for me.. as well as Ready... I will always miss you and your kind words and wonderful wisdom.

New Adventures on their way...

So, it has been a while since my last blog.  Life has changed quite a bit for me but we have dusted off and are ready to mount back up and enjoy life again. 

We lost our fabulous gelding, Ready, to colic back in January.. that was a horrible experience for Aubrey and I.  Nothing I care to happen ever again but as the rest of you know.. our fur kids just don't live as long as we would like them to. 

I am looking at getting a lesson program started here.  It would mostly be based on safety, natural horsemanship, and trail riding.  Let me know what you think... I know there aren't really any trail riding lesson programs out there and I do believe there is a need.  People who only arena ride usually aren't comfortable hitting the trails where the unknown is around each bush and corner of the trail.  So, what I will be offering is a layed back atmosphere, individual lessons for raw beginners, group lessons once a level of comfort has been reached, and FUN FUN FUN.  Of course those of you those of you that have taken lessons with me.. yes, I do demand certain things.. but it's for your, mine, and the horse's safety and comfort.  The two horses I currently have here have both won their share of trail trials and I will accept credit for making them the horses they are today.  I would love to share them and some nice rides with you or someone you think may be interested.

That's it for now.. ride on!!!
