September 6, 2017 ยท A picture of me with Spicy Girl from our Women's Wild Horse Empowerment Journey over Labor Day Weekend. I promise to make an album and post more pictures soon. But for now, I was happy with this one because it reminded me of how important these weekends can be; for horse and human.

In May, this little girl was in my group and she was so anxious. The minute she got in the round pen, she would size up rails and run at them as if to jump out. My group worked on redirecting those thoughts and helping her find confidence with us through consistent leadership. She had improved to the point that she was able to finally let go of needing back in her herd and could stand quietly with us and truly begin to connect. (She even started to come out of her shell and get a little sassy.) When she came into the pen this weekend, after only a couple hours of training and months off, running wild, she never sized up her pen or acted as if she was going to climb it. She came in just how I remembered her on the last day. A little sassy.

When you join in on these weekend retreats in Wild Horse Canyon, (Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue and The Medicine Horse Project) you will not only be making positive, lasting changes in your own life, but in the lives of the horses as well. How great is that?!

My Wild Horse Bootcamp 2017 Group clearly did right by this horse and made a lasting change. Great job ladies. (Lissa, Hannah, Carlee and Christine)

I have no doubt that this weekend my girls made another lasting impression on Little Miss Spicy Girl. (Mary, Linda, Tonya, Gina and Judy)What a lucky Wild Pony. Her first experiences with people and learning have been so positive thanks to you. All of you have taken an important part in setting her up for a very successful future.
