  The wildness of the horse will always translate into a deep  connection with me.  The desire to please us is ever present. When the two souls ignite, it causes things to surface opening a portal to our fears, anxieties, tension, love, anger, trust , disappointment and most of all ....our hope.  
   Watching children or adults of abuse, tough cowboys, the blind, cancer patients, those with autism, the young, the old, the very brave, and the scared to death... make this connection, is vividly inspiring.    few of my guests have come from down the 
way, across town, and from such far away places as Russia, Japan, Belize, New York, and California.  
   My life  with the horse has afforded me many opportunities to put into practice the hands-on communication, and practical experiences of being a Southern Oklahoma Country Farm Girl.                        
I am looking forward to meeting you !
