Can You See The Trees In The Forest?

Can you see the trees in the forest or just the forest?

Lately it seems more than usual I have been on a mission to try and have riders, horse owners, and anyone else I can find to look a lot deeper into what is going on with their horse.

Day Six of The High and Wild Adventure 2014

BY KELSEY SIMPSON

As the week is coming to a close it is hard to remember everything that went on here on the High & Wild Adventure. From the moment we stepped foot on the ground at the lodge we have continually been picking up facets of information throughout our day. It didn’t matter if we were in the corral, working with horses, or eating breakfast, there was always more information to absorb.

Day Five of The High and Wild Adventure 2014

Feel it in your soul.

BY KELSEY SIMPSON

While taking in the scenery that surrounded us at lunch, we were discussing how incredible it was and Donna Blem said something profound.

“When I breathe in deeply, I can feel it in my soul.”

This perfectly described the day and the emotions I think we were all feeling as we traveled through the mountains. There is no way to describe the feeling you get being here.  Every turn of your head reveals a new vista to take in, all beautiful, all peaceful, all magnificent.  It would not be possible to ever take any of this for granted.

Day Four of The High and Wild Adventure 2014

BY: KELSEY SIMPSON

I woke up in a slight panic this morning. First I thought I had slept through breakfast, but when I realized I hadn’t something else entered my mind. “Day four? How is it day four already?” I thought to myself. We only arrived a few, very short days ago and now the trip is already half over! What happened to our week!

Day Three of The High and Wild Adventure 2014

 

BY KELSEY SIMPSON

This was it. After the last few days of preparation, learning, and practice, it was all coming together. We were so eager, and perhaps a little nervous for the outcome, but today we went on our first ride with our horses.

We spent the morning watching Glenn work with a black mare.  He was demonstrating the importance of proper warm up on the ground to prepare our horses for the upcoming trail ride.  The mare, Spider, was on high alert, and only got her first ride outside the round pen just last year.  Glenn is the only one that has worked with her, just a little on each of his trips here for the past three years.
