My husband and I lived in Southern CA for about 7 1/2 years, moved to Colorado about 2 1/2 years ago. I kept my gelding out in Agua Dulce, north of LA about 37 miles. Loved it out there, lots of nice horse people. Lost him in 2007, and replaced him after coming to Colorado with a paint mustang that I have had now for 2 years. I started a new forum discussion thread on Leslie Desmond Feel and Release technique just today if anyone is interested. She was based on CA for many years near Novato and now lives back east and part time in Europe.
Nice meeting you all,
