Intrepid Riders Faction Award

Breathe of HorseCentric bestowed this award upon me. Thank you. This is a fine compliment.

Here is the information on this award:

"This Award is dedicated to those horse lovers and riders that inspire others to go deeper in ability, knowledge and understanding of the equine(s) they have been entrusted to.

"The good of the horse is the ultimate goal apart from pressures to achieve ribbons and fit into lesson schedules.

"These riders are fearless, when it comes to weather conditions and the forecasting of them...being with their horses, fills these folks' soul and takes the cares out of daily routines.

"They are unconditionally loving to the horse and may have rescued it from known ailment or living condition. Others have researched and purchased/ acquired their horse, to find a difficulty in temperament or a physical burden within the animal. Yet, being dedicated, they have persevered to proudly be in partnership with their horse, lovingly striving for deeper awareness between them.

"They might have been riding for years and suddenly had an accident that takes them away from the great joy and freedom they have, being aboard such a magnificent animal. They have allowed the healing horse to rise in their hearts once again, and beckon them back.

INTREPID RIDERS FACTION ~ "We strive to go where others only dare to go with our horse loves...healing, riding, playing, camping, jumping, swimming and traveling down the trails of life. . . . with the horse in heart ~ Overcoming many obstacles and sometimes weather, to ride!

"There are not many rules with this award - just:

1) that you give it to only one person,

2) link back to this post, so they may have an understanding of its nature, and

3) you may use any or all of the above written descriptions."

I choose Paint Girl for this award. When I struggle to have a decent ride out on the trails with my horses, Paint Girl has a story to tell me of her own struggles and how long it took for her horses to relax and behave themselves. I am so impressed that she just kept going, putting miles on them, and now she is raising a Mustang filly on top of grooming Arabian show horses for a living. I wish we lived closer, because I'd be out there trail riding with you each weekend, Paint Girl.

Paint Girl is so deserving! I am glad that you have honored her with an award. What I really love about her is how postive she is, and her sense of humor. Wouldn't you love it if she were your neighbor instead of your neighbor? hah!
PS Love your new kitchen. Those countertops sure look sweet.
