About Me


Poppy looking towards the trail up the canyon.

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.

  1. HEY JUDY!

    This is so doggoned cool.

    1. Hey Marilyn,
      Thanks so much for stopping by my website. I’m glad you like the video and my website. This has been my project for the last few months. I’m having a great time with it. Merry Christmas to you and Tom too. 🙂

  2. I have never owned a horse. The only riding I have done is on paid and hosted trail rides … but I enjoy that. I’ve done rides in WI, IL, TX, GA and the Rocky Mountains. When I was about 5 the desire to be a “real cowgirl” started. (I lived in a small town in WI – no chance!) My Mom & Dad scraped together enough money to buy me a cowgirl outfit. It was red, with white fringe and a red hat. How I loved it. I used to stroll around town and I actually thought that the passers-by would think that I was a “real cowgirl” visiting from a big ole Texas ranch. lol … I had almost forgotten about that. Thanks for the beautiful memories. Melody

    1. Hi Melody,
      Thank you so much for reading my blog and commenting with such kind words. I can see you in your “cowgirl” outfit, how cute. So glad I was able to help you recall such a wonderful time in your life. About made me cry lol.
      Oh I would love to go on rides like you described. I do ride as much as I can now out in a big huge field. It’s a lot fun and at least I’m riding.
      As the wonderful “cowgirl” Dale Evans sang, “Happy Trails to you” when ever and where ever we ride.

  3. What a site page you have here, it is beautiful! I love horses too, we have an old trotter called Looi that we have “converted” to a riding horse and we love him dearly, he is the sweetest boy. A horse is a great friend, and riding is so calming! Will get back and check out what more you show 🙂 Blessings, Kristina
