Dream big!

A horse is poetry in motion.

I have experienced a series of unusual magical events these past couple of years. 
Purchasing Fiona, falling in love with her, starting her, riding her- my life changed.
It became full
... it couldn't get any better, right?
Well it did, a few months later I acquired Bella.
The love I have for my two dark horses is indescribable.
Ninne, my Swedish grandfather who had past down his love of horses to me
now, become my reality
a dream.
 
I moved to Montana because of a movie, yes that's right because of a movie. " The horse whisperer". Living in New York at the time I wanted something else, inspired by the surrounding -  in a round about way 3 years later I moved to Montana-
also
 a dream.
 
 Well the movie was based on Buck Brannaman-
I read everything I could about him, watched every you tube video and then....
finally moving to Montana  I saw him in person 2 winters ago
- a three day clinic I watched him -
 showing up hours early just to get a good seat I would sit in that cold arena and soak up everything
a dream.
 
 Last week my trainer forwarded a post on Facebook
 Buck was coming to Kalispell for a week in summer 2016 
there were possibly spots open for his clinic.
 I don't know what came over me- I have never felt such energy. 
Immediately I emailed the sponsors and
inquired if there were still spots available-
too scared to think if there was not a spot open- too scared to think if there was a spot open
what would I do?
Few minutes later the response was-
Shayne says you're in, send us a deposit and we'll see you next summer!
Frozen, I stood and looked at my puter screen- this can't be true???
 This simply can not be true?
It is SO hard to get into his clinics, I felt as if I won the lottery.
 
I went completely ballistic dancing, crying, laughing,screaming ( I actually lost my voice)
jumping around,
 my daughter and dogs thought I had completely lost it.
 I had come FULL CIRCLE
 I am actually going to ride in a 5 day clinic with Buck Brannaman next summer!
 a dream.
 a dream that came true 15 years later
 
My kids see that my BIGGEST dream did come true
 and realize it can happen anytime if you work hard if you work towards it
it's inspiring not only to me, but to them.
 
 
If you told me 15 years ago I would be living in Montana with two horse and ride in a clinic with Buck I would have chortled.
 
Dream BIG!
 Dreams come true.
 Believe in yourself- you can do it-  no matter what it is- if you want it, go get it!
 
 
 My heart is full.
 It feels incredible.
 
 Horses are incredibly forgiving. They fill in places we're not capable of filling ourselves.
-Buck Brannaman
