I see from the post dates, that I started this site the week before I moved out of our family home in La Canada. My daughter joined me a week later. We share a cozy apartment in Pasadena now. I am still riding in Cherry Canyon on Dreamy and Wildflower. They are fit and barefoot and I ride them with no reins. We are often found blazing new trails in the rugged Cherry Canyon terrain. I am spending this next 6 months planning my SHLEP which stands for Soul-searching, Home-searching, Liberating, Equestrian Party. I will haul my mares to ride in all 48 states for one year before I settle down in my new life. I want to paint a painting a la “Tiara in Idaho” for all 48 states.
