I have spent a hell of a lot of time daydreaming about the perfect horse. Mind you, I have no shortage of a selection, and I love each and every one, but out there, I knew there was one with the size, the shape, the color and the mind I wanted- probably with a huge price tag. The day I met this mare, she was in a field of starving horses. I drove by, saw her lying in the grass and instantly, my heart got heavy, a lump in my throat- I stopped the car and ran. I ran as fast as my old lady leg would let me, and when I came upon her, instead of spooking and moving away, she stayed right where she was. I knelt down and introduced myself. Starting at her muzzle, her warm breath on the back of my hand, and slowly moved to her cheek. I started to rub her face a little and her eyes began to close, her whole body softening, melting into my hand. This mare, who had been entirely neglected, completely vulnerable, had given up on life and had no desire to run from a threat.. laid into my palm, pressing my hand between her face and the cool soil beneath us, and slept a deep sleep. I was almost frozen for a minute, shocked at first, but mostly because I didn’t want to startle her. In that moment, those moments, I knew I’d keep her always, to make sure she never went without the necessities of life, but most importantly, unconditional love. Horses teach us so much about ourselves, but more so about how to walk through life. Hearts are typically not easily given, but when they are, you cherish them, and be gentle with them. We brought them all home the next day. She is everything I’ve ever wanted, and then some. She is my Keeper, in more ways than one. 🖤🌿 . . . . . . . . . . . #Love #MyKeeper #BigRoans #Soulmate #Horses #RealLife #SeeIntoLife #FeelTheThought #HorseObsessed #HorseCrazy #Perfection #SweetGirl #Keeper #YouHoldMyHeart #BrickByBrick #ThreeMonthsIn #Adventures #PreciousMoments

A horse is the projection of peoples dreams about themselves, strong, powerful, beautiful. And it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence. #aqha #love #passion #itswhatido #horsesofinstagram #youholdmyheart #lovethislife #horseshow #level1championships #west @southpointlv @smartpak @greenhawkinc #canadian 🇨🇦

Little Rook being perfect as always. There isn't a single thing i don't love about him, but for a first yearling i think he is going to trick me into getting another one, that won't be nearly so easy as him! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #uragoodinvite #yearling #babyhorse #futuritybaby #aqhya #aqhaproud #aqha #quarterhorse #quarterhorsebaby #aqhyaproud #amplifyaqhya #reachout #youholdmyheart #aqhababy #aqhahorse #lungeline #halter #showmanship

#ArQHAQueenTravels I brought the sash all the way to Guthrie!! I had an amazing time at the @lazy_e_arena during the @officialaqha Level 1 Cattle Championships. I loved watching the versatility of the American Quarter Horse in action! Everyone there was so joyful and I made many friends from around the country, all of us connected by our love of the American Quarter Horse!!!❤️❤️ — @arkansasquarterhorse @aaqhcongressqueen @qhcongress #AQHAProud #YouHoldMyHeart #ArQHAQueen #AshtonReinsReign #AQHA

Zip and I had such a great time at the Oldham County Saddle Club June Super Show! From getting our bling on in pleasure to dressing as Captain America for the costume class, we had a great show, and it was a blast hanging with my horse show buddies and cheering each other on! We finished with first in youth western pleasure, youth western equitation, youth showmanship, and open western horsemanship, second in youth showmanship, youth open seat pleasure, and open western pleasure, fourth in youth halter and open western horsemanship, and fifth in youth halter. And while we didn’t place, Zip gave me some really great rides in trail and ranch, and I’m super proud of her. • #Zip #ZipBama #AQHA #AQHYA #quarterhorse #quarterhorses #quarterhorsesofinstagram #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #sorrel #mare #pony #ponies #poniesofinstagram #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart

I love rides like this💖 • • We got two new horses today! One I really like, but my dad is going to work with him for awhile and I guess we’ll see how it goes. His personality is exactly what I want, and I don’t want another Kari which is what I’m worried he’s going to be like, but we’ll see! Of course, I’m still looking for my unicorn😂 - - QOTD: AOTD: - - Proudly partnered with these amazing companies! @running_wild_reins_ (use code NCCRWR) - - __________________________ Tags: #ChaseYourDreams #horses #horsesofinstagram #quarterhorse #aqha #ottb #barrelhorse #barrelracing #barrelhorsesofinstagram #turnnburn #barrelhorsetrainer #barelhorses #barrelhorse #barrelracing #barrelracer #rwrteam2018 #qhpic #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #classicequine #phtmagnetics #teampht #5starequine #5starpads

Commitment, compassion, and compromise. All keys to making things work. Don't give up because something may be hard or scary, most times in life, the right things to do are. "It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside, I'm not one of those who can easily hide. I don't have much money, but boy if I did, I'd buy a big house where we both could live" - Your Song by Elton John. #love #soulmate #youholdmyheart #yoursong #eltonjohn #emotional #overthinker #depression #anxiety #commitment #compassion #compromise #keys

What has your horse taught you? Funny you should ask..... we’ve learned being patient is best, because not all horses are the same, so you can’t teach them all the same! You have to stay as gentle as possible but as firm as necessary so moral of the story the more you use your reins the less they use their brains! We have also learned you have to try to make the wrong thing difficult but the right thing easy. And lastly you can’t expect to train a horse with shouts and expect to obey a whisper! #aqha #aqhaproud #applebyfamilyfarms #Aqhafoals #westernriding #western #equinephotography #equine #ranchhorses #ranchlife #ranch #tsroyalperks #youholdmyheart #performancehorses #traininglessons #trainingadvice #palomino #foals #foalsof2018 #foalingseason #foalofinstagram #horseplanet #horselovers #learning

This big guy has been so perfect lately. Used to think of him as lazy, but am figuring out he is actually going to need long warm-ups before his classes in order to do well. He has more stored energy than he would like to admit! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #invitedbychocolate #aqhaproud #westernhorse #westernpleasure #aqha #aqhya #aqhyaproud #amplifyaqhya #reachout #youholdmyheart #equitation #hunterundersaddle #quarterhorse #showmanship #aqhahorse #horsemanship #invitationonly #loping #horsegram

Soo Ellie was an angel this weekend😍😇~ • We had some amazing rides and I was so proud of my girl. She got me grand under both judges 14-18 and ending up winning me a chair. Another highlight was she won me a plaque in trail. We placed first and second out of a large class. Our western rides weren’t perfect, but she was tired so it was okay. So happy with her😍🎀 • #cashselektra #aqha #aqhaproud #quarterhorse #youholdmyheart #hunterjumper #hunterundersaddle #hunterhack #equitation #westernpleasure #horsemanship #showmanship #horsesofinstagram #equestrian #gymkhana

I am soooo proud of my girl. I had some good runs on both horses last night, but Grace really impressed me. Before last night, my fastest barrel time (on any horse) was 18. My fastest pole time (on any horse) was 28. My fastest barrel time in Grace was 24, my fastest pole time on Grace was 36. I set my goals on Grace for 20 on barrels, 30 on poles, thinking that may be a bit unrealistic. I go out and she pulled an 18.8 on barrels, and a 27 in poles. This is only her second time ever running poles, and I don't think I've even practiced since the last show. We also ran a 17 on goats, no times in flags because I missed the barrel, and we would have had 10 in hurdles but knocked one and got 15. Then on Poco I ran an 18.0 on barrels, 10 on flags, 29 on poles, and would have had 9 on hurdles but knocked one and got 14. So proud to have trained Grace. I'll probably post my pole run sometime. I'm blessed to own Grace, and get to run Poco. #AQHA #AQHYA #AQHAProud #MyRootsRunDeep #AmplifyAQHYA #ReachOut #YouHoldMyHeart #LiveYourAdventure #Hustle #BarrelRacing #PRCS #ProCustomSaddlery #PFIWestern #ClassicEquine #Legacy #WeaverLeather #RideTheBrand #EmpireRodeoGear #RidingOnFaith

Horse fair this year was full of ups and downs......on the first day, we were warming up for dressage and Buddy tripped and got lame. We then had to scratch the rest of my classes that day. He progressively got better throughout the rest of horse fair. 😉We ended up just doing showmanship and trail the next day, we got Reserve Champion Intermediate Showman! The third day we did all the ranch horse classes and got a top 5 Ranch horse medallion! Last but not least on Gaming day, we decided to only do 3 events, to be easy on his leg. We ended up getting Reserve Champion for Key race and Champion for 2 barrel flag race.......and get this, only 8/10ths of a second away from qualifying for state with my NON-gaming horse!! I'm so glad buddy came through and I couldn't be happier with his perserverance! 😍😙💗🤗💜🐎 #rickychexjr #buddy #versatility #cowpony #westernhorsemanship #ranchriding #trail #westernequitation #horsesofinstagram #aqha #horse #horses #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #quarterhorse #ranchhorse #allaroundhorse #horsemanship  #western #quarterhorsesofinstagram #summer #4h #horse4h #oregon #palomino #palominoquarterhorse
