Miss Diggy Bear
September 27, 2011

The super fantastic horse in the picture above “I Can Do It!”  is Miss Diggy Bear, affectionately known better as Buttercup.  Today is the day I send in her entry for the Young Event Horse 5 yr old Championships at Fair Hill!  Woo hoo!!!

“I Can Do It!”
September 23, 2011


I am so excited because this is my first blog.  I finally decided to join the modern world and dive in.

I decided to do this today because I just put a quote up on my facebook profile page about the “limitless potential of the human spirit” as one of the gifts we get everyday from horses.  We are so enormously lucky to have these creatures in our lives!  What better place to learn dogged tenacity, responsibility, committment, dedication, perseverence, humility, and overwhemlingly, appreciation.  And, in the words of my dear friend Rose Lawler after a very successful clinic with Bent Jensen, “I can do it!”

Hmmm .  I think that may also have something to do with the reason my beautiful mare is named Believe.  We all have to believe, even when the going is rough.

I believe in the horses’ ability to bring out the very best in us and lead us to do great things in life.  That is a true gift.  Enjoy.
