How to Be a Champion

You Wonder How They Do It,
You Look to See the Knack,
You Watch the Foot in Action,
Or the Shoulder or the Back.
But When You Spot the Answer Where the Higher Glamours Lurk,
You’ll Find in Moving Higher
Up the Laurel-Covered Spire,
That Most of It Is Practice,
And the Rest of It Is Work.

What I’m currently reading 📖 “Deep practice is built on a paradox: struggling in certain targeted ways—operating at the edges of your ability, where you make mistakes—makes you smarter. Or to put it a slightly different way, experiences where you're forced to slow down, make errors, and correct them—as you would if you were walking up an ice-covered hill, slipping and stumbling as you go—end up making you swift and graceful without your realizing it.”

Princess Laya looks good under a palm tree. She survived her first 1/2 country haul, and is settling in! Can’t wait to learn and grow on this girl! 👸🏼🦄🌴☀️

I can’t live without horses because it is an inseparable part of my identity that refuses to let go. Horses are hard… on the heart, the pocketbook, on the body. But, there is something about them that holds and grasps a soul and demands we love and stick to them, even when it seems impossible. This girl is no exception. She is my wonder girl who keeps me guessing, on my toes and holds a very special place in my heart ❤️🦄

Our horses gives us so much of their heart, soul and being. The least we can do for them is be an empathetic and CLEAR communicator 🥰🦄

Never too old, or could possibly have too many horse show moms. Here’s to the moms who hold all the things all the time. Who dry our tears when things didn’t go as planned. The moms who are ready with a bandaid *or vet wrap and duct tape*. The moms who bite their nails as we go into the ring. The moms who dust our boots right before. The moms who are camera ready and forever videotaping. The moms who remember fly spray, tea tree oil and chocolate cure most irritations. The moms who tell us not to give up and quietly pray things will pull through. The moms who are up at the butt crack of dawn for braiding, and out in the dark with flashlights for night check. The moms who bring us sandwiches AND carrots. The moms who drive the trailer while we nap. The moms who teach us that even a little progress is perfection – and not the other way around. How lucky am I to have and have had many of these moms in my life 💗

Something I needed to hear today.

I get asked at shows allllllll the time, “What do you do to get your horse(s) SO WHITE?!” Both Grenade and Laya have pink skin, so there is NO hiding of dirt and dust what-so-ever. 🙅🏼‍♀️⠀
And trust me…it’s not without some hard-core elbow grease 💪🏼 ⠀

Over the next couple days, I’ll share some tips and products that have really come in handy and I’ve learned to trust along the way!⠀

1️⃣ After the initial wetting 🚿start with an all over scrub using #orvus shampoo 🧼It works great to really get out the deep grime. A little goes a long way, and make sure to rinse well! ⠀

2️⃣ Use a scrub brush! I like one with a narrow handle and short bristles that are somewhat soft and flexible. Bringing the dirt to the surface is key 🔑 to get it washed away. Scrub, rinse, scrub, rinse until that pink skin shows! Some horses (like my 🦄 ⬆️) have sensitive skin, so take your time to find one they like but I have found a brush is much more effective than a sponge or mitt. ⠀

What are some of your favorite whitening tips?! ⠀

👀 for my next tips in the following days! ⠀

❄️ The snow sure makes a beautiful white background ❄️ My favorite field, summer and winter!

When it’s mid January in Iowa and there’s a chance to go do something outside the mundane, you do it! Got to go back to my roots last weekend! Grenade was such a great sport…who would have thought he could be such a cute little jumper AND a dressage horse! #watchoutforthegrenade #teamcowhorse

Nothing beats a 40 degree sunset ride in January on the best ever furry friend 🦄☀️
