Special Message

This blog is dedicated to every woman, and especially horsewomen, who started their motherhood journey a little later than most. If you feel like your story is a theatrical event and you've just begun the 2nd act, then this blog is for you. This blog will communicate what I have learned from growing up a suburban latch key kid, to marrying a cowboy-at-heart, to relocating and raising our daughter in the heart of Rocky Mountain country.

Why "Hooves"?

Well, howdy there and come on in! 


My newest collage (August 25, 2014):

My passion, my ultimate peace, the source of my joy.....so often comes from the majestic soul that is the horse.

Here is a video from this past summer, my horse running the barrels for the very first time (never even practised them):


Here we are, my Cinder girl and me, competing at a county fair.  So much fun!
We are preparing, this spring, to compete in several shows...our 1st "serious" competition summer.  Can't wait to blog how it all turns out.

SOME FUN SHOTS FROM OUR SHOW SEASON!   **NEW AS OF AUGUST, 2014***


And....since I am showing this year, I think I should introduce you to a **WONDERFUL** woman I discovered, miss LORI SOLEM:
for making custom Western show clothes.   CLICK HERE  to visit her Facebook page.  She makes the most beautiful shirts for a great price (cheaper than some off the rack stuff!).


A training collage from 2010.  Friends, trainers, horses......and one gigantic red ball!
This page is definitely a work in progress, so come on back soon to see what's new.  Thanks for visiting!

So glad you dropped by to say "hi"......
