You already know that I'm excited for ya! Glad you are enjoying it. Now I'm going to have to visit you at work the next time I'm down that way :)

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

A woman (owner) is in my circle of horse people and we know a lot of the same people. My name was brought up and people saying I was a really good rider and had started a few horses with good results.. The trainer (actually Rob on HoFo) contacted me and we went back and forth for a week or so, I sent he and Owner videos of me riding and they liked what they saw.. This has been in the works for a month now and I've talked to Owner a lot about it, went and rode with her, she said she loved me and asked if I could even start before Rob moved over from Lousiana at the beginning of February, starting the two small mares.. I just lucked into the job and had good references and riding a lot of disciplines, not just barrels and the fact I've worked at barns and just have a lot of experience in different things. So, I'm super excited about it and really excited about competing in a new discipline, adding that to my belt.. I guess it really shows what a good reputation can do for you.

MHF you know it! I'd love to have you down again and maybe ride a few this time. You can bring Knothead with you and take Hickory home with ya. ;)

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Congrats on the new job! You'll learn a bucket load.. and I am swooning that gorgeous gorgeous man!

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.
