• The Hard Things

    I’ve been sitting here in front of a blank page on my computer screen for 45 minutes.  The truth is, I have no idea how to begin this entry.  But I have always been totally transparent with you and honestly, that’s just who I am.  And I think another part of struggling to begin is that typing it up for you and hitting “publish” makes it all too real. On the other hand, it SHOULD be real.  It should be VERY real.  And anyone that has a horse or knows someone that has a horse really needs to pay attention.  This information is so important that I BACKED OUT OF…

  • An Introduction Is In Order!

    You know…..there’s so many new email subscriptions to this blog and I decided that I should probably re-introduce myself for those that don’t know me.

I’d like to tell you that I do this every single year….but I’ve never lied to you before and I’m not going to start now. 😉  Truth is, it’s every couple of years. But THIS is THE year! How do I know that this is the year?  How do YOU know…

  • Evolution of Cowgirl Dreams Co.

    Whoa. It’s been a while, hasn’t it!? But here I am with a big ol’ update…..so you may just wanna grab a glass of your favorite and settle on in!  The good Lord knows I tend to get lost and ramble on a bit. You’ve heard that old saying that “life is a journey”, right?  That ain’t no joke.  When I first began this journey it was all about my ride with Ryleigh and trying to figure out why on earth this dog trainer/behavior consultant (me) that has spent an entire career working with various levels of aggressive dogs could possibly have all these anxieties and fears with this giant…
