It has been 2 years this month of March in which Lee passed away.
The memorial trophy Gaited Horse Magazine and myself commissioned and donated has just been completed. I will shortly ship to MFTBA in MO to be presented as a perpetual trophy for the first time this year at the celebration held in Ava, MO.
Dave created the above photo as a memorial to her including the trophy and a photo which was taken at a clinic Lee and I did a number of years ago together in Woodland, CA.
I also in trying to keep her work alive adapted one of her articles with permission from Gaited Horse Magazine as they owned that material for Trail Rider Magazine, March issue.
In any way possible in a positive manner, let us all help keep her work and memory working forever to help the horses she felt so passionately about.
This is for you and to you Lee!

I got a day to ride with out my snow suit.
Now I will admit I have on my polar fleece lined jeans on but so much better after a long winter riding in that blasted suit.
The photo above is of Jugueton a.k.a Whodamus Horseamus. Whodie is a Spanish Mustang, a coming 5 year old and even better is a gaited individual in this breed.
He is owned by my Friend Jane and was with us last winter for basic starting work and is now back for continued under saddle work.
He loves being here and his best friend here is Stryker my Champagne TWH, those 2 are always into something and trying to stir up the rest of the horses.
He's a little horse with a lot of heart, joyful and the mind to equal 4 horses, brilliant, just a brilliant horse.

Horses are emotional creatures in the way of a horse, just as you are in the way of a human.
You have good days and bad days and so do they.
Make the best of the horse you have in the NOW.
Not what it was yesterday or times of the past.
Ride the Horse You Have Today!

How exciting technology has come this far. I'm looking forward to sharing my blog with you as I have time. My hopes are to share some of my work here on the ranch, horses and people I meet in my travels, and just thoughts and ideas I have along the way in my journey through horsemanship.
