Howdy all, my name is Judy and I love horses and most things western; from cowboys/cowgirls to old west movies and everything in between. That pretty much sums me up in a sentence.
I’m glad you’ve stopped by to chat about horses. We can talk about riding and our horses. I’ve owned a few horses through the years. They are a part of my life even when they are not here anymore.
All About Horses
I’ve wanted to know all I could about horses. I want to know how to ride and take care of them. I want to know what to do if they act up or get spooked or lose respect for their handler. I’ve wanted to be more than just a person throwing a saddle on the horse and riding into the sunset; I’ve wanted to understand the heart of the horse. Why is there such an attraction between a girl and her horse and a cowboy and his horse? These questions are answered person by person, everyone is different. This blog is sharing my thoughts and experiences as they have come to me in my life.
If this is what you’d enjoy then come on in and lets talk horse.
Cowgirls of the Past
I admire those cowgirls of old like Lucille Mulhall and Annie Oakley and others who are the real cowgirls and who I can only hope and dream about being like them. There are some TV cowboys and cowgirls I admire too. I think of Betsy Garth on The Virginian and Dale Evans who rode with Roy Rogers in his TV shows. Betsy was always racing on horseback against Trampas, Steve, and the Virginian over the grassy hills of the Shiloh ranch. My heart raced with them as they whooped and hollered, chasing each other to the home barn.
I’d like to include interesting posts about the old-time cowgirl too. They were brave and adventurous and I can only dream about being like them.
“No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.” -Winston Churchill
“There is nothing so good for the inside of a man as the outside of a horse.” -John Lubbock
To that last one, I would add for a woman too. 🙂
I hope you will visit my site often and ride along with me on this journey with horses, one of nature’s most magnificent creatures.
