It’s Been a Hot Minute

Hi friends! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve shared anything here. It’s not that I don’t have plenty to say, but that I’ve been writing other places. I’m writing for the American Quarter Horse Association, for Ag Week and still plugging away for Cavvy Savvy as time permits. The year seems to have flown […]

A Road Trip to the BBR Finals

I know I’m only about 4.5 months late in posting this run. I’ve been busy, trying to grow in my horsemanship, and grow my photography and writing business as well. And of course I’m trying to fill my WPRA permit. The rodeos have been fun, and I’m learning a lot. My nerves are leaving me, and […]

Babies!

hawk, babies, foal, the south dakota cowgirl

It’s time to start sharing photos of the babies!  On Tuesday the 30th our first foal of the year was born. Then on Friday morning, while I was away at a rodeo, I got photos from home of a gorgeous little stud colt!  For those of you who may recall, Fridge and Tony, this little […]

Adventures from The Rodeo Road

So far, the rodeo road has taught me a lot, but I’ve yet to win a check for my efforts. At Valley City, ND, my first ever pro rodeo I was pretty nervous and Avie felt like he never settled into the ground. He stumbled on the second, and really shut down hard on the […]

A Two Rein Horse

I thought I’d take a moment and share with you a quick video about the two-rein. I’ve just recently moved my horse Dino into this set-up. He is the first two-rein horse I’ve ever made, and so I’m watching a lot of DVDs on how to NOT mess this up! I really enjoy the teachings […]

Happy National Ag Day!

Let’s take a moment to revel in the fact that today we celebrate Ag. Ag keeps the wheels of our country turning, because without food, well, we’d be a pretty cranky set of people!  So let’s raise a glass to the cowboys that rope — Ranch horses that work and play hard —   The […]
