The goal is that each ride is better than the last: it may be that *one* thing is better today than something that was better yesterday, but with each mile, each step, more confidence is gained. They find the center of your rectangle and check back to you โ€” how fast or slow do you want them to go? Should they be concerned about the dogs or a deer or a clump of weeds? โ€No, young one, weโ€™re all goodโ€ you say, as you rub them reassuringly. Iโ€™ll share my confidence with her today but one day sheโ€™ll lend me hers and together we will conquer the world. #dxandthecity #cosmo #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #horsemanship #horsetraining
Does anyone else find it terribly hard to get out of bed these days? I mean, it's really dark outside at 5:30am and the bed is so nice and warm. Maui is snuggled in and purring, Copper is by my side on the floor (but only because I'm certain he's terrified Maui the cat is getting more pets than him), and it's so quiet. I wish my clock would let me sleep until the sun comes up, but alas, that's not how it works. At least not for me. I've been so tired the past two nights that I've been in bed right after the @lasvegasnfr started on TV. It must be because Winter is coming! Did you like my Game of Thrones reference there? Okay. I've rambled on enough about my inability to get out of bed in the morning. Here's hoping everyone has a great Friday! #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #Dxjurassicclassic #canonphotography #fallinsouthdakota #hifromsd #southdakota #ranching
Two mares in Assateague Lightningโ€™s band knee deep in a marsh. I have not had the opportunity to spend enough time with them to be able to identify these two from this angle ๐Ÿ˜•. #wild #assateagueisland #nationalseashore #maryland #assateague #wildhorsepc #wildhorsephotography #naturephotography #creation #wildpony #wildlife #horselove #raw_horses #islandlife #nature #ig_equine #nationalpark #wildhorses #sony6300 #whpc_assateague #marsh #osv #wildmares
Letโ€™s raise a glass to the horses that made us, the horses that broke us, the horses that make our day better. We couldnโ€™t be any prouder of these saddle horses if we tried. These guys make Ranch work, dreamy. #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #ranchhorses #workingranchmagazine #hifromsd #saddlehorseherd #NationalDayOfTheHorse
โ€œA canter is a cure for every evil.โ€โ€” Benjamin Disraeli . On this #NationalDayOfTheHorse I want to honor the horses in my herd. From Oldest to youngest -- 1. Streakin Iron (Nora) w/DX Nukelear Iron Man (Tony 3yo). This mare is the nicest horse in my herd. She's the mama to Tony & Hawk. Tony is pictured with her. She'll be 19 in January. I wish she'd live forever. You can let her sit for years, catch her, and she'll ride off with a kid astride her and you know she's going to take great care of them. 2. No Average Joe 022 (Avie '03). I'm fairly certain I'd be lost without him. He's honest and consistent. His soul has a fire in it like nothing I've ever owned. He's the strongest, hardest running, hardest turning horse I've ever sat on, and I've had a few. 3. Dx Jurassic Classic (Dino). Dino is a 2008 model chestnut gelding and he's my favorite go to horse for the ranch. You can rope a yearling, chase a bull, take him to a barrel race -- or grab him for a quick bareback jaunt & he's going to be his honest comfortable self. He's my real-life rocking horse. 4. Ibaflitnbird (Dolce) w/ DX Generalissimo (Issy 3yo). Dolce died this summer at age 10, but left me Issy & Belle. She was the first horse I ever bred. I was roping live cattle on her w/10 rides. 5. Dolce w/DX Dolce Belissima (Belle). I am enamored with this friendly, well-put-together orphan filly. 6. DX Nukethis Bombshel (Bombshell) w/DX EZYBRZY PNK MARTINI (Prism). She is a 7yo mare that I raised; out of Fleefoots Dakota Sun (Shuttle -deceased '15). She's quiet & kind & well, you know how I feel about Prism! 7. DX Nukeulele (Nukeulele). Zach gave me this mare after Dolce died. I've always loved her and I can't wait for her 2019 foal to be born! 8. DX And The City (Cosmo 4yo). Cosmo is a half sister to Bombshell. I have the highest of hopes she'll be my next rodeo horse. She has the same fire as her mama. And her mama was a bad ass. 9. Hawk. I need not say more. He's Instagram Famous and super kissable!
Surround yourself with folks who will cheer you on when you decide to run a marathon. Who will cheer you on when you decide you want to go to the pro rodeos and you have yet to even win a barrel race, or folks who will cheer you on when you decide to quit your safe, 9-5 job so you can chase your dreams. . . . Go, chase your dreams, no matter how crazy they may be. Dreams donโ€™t come true with no action. And they wonโ€™t come true if you donโ€™t have a crew willing to push you when you want to quit and encourage you when youโ€™re down. . . . Letโ€™s raise a glass ๐Ÿฅƒ and make a toast ๐Ÿฅ‚ to the crew! And if you donโ€™t have a crew, give me a shout. Iโ€™m your huckleberry. ๐Ÿ˜˜ #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #blackandwhite #runninghorses #horsesrunning #hifromsd #workingranchimages #workingranchmagazine #bnwphotography #blackandwhite #bnw_addicted
Starting my trip to town with an unintended visit to see the mare herd was the best. Prism wouldnโ€™t leave me alone. She wanted me to rub and scratch her. And sheโ€™s so dang cute who am I to deny her? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #shotoniphonex #babyhorses #futurewinner

"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is time for home." โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € - Edith Sitwell โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € I'm not going to lie. When it's 11 degrees outside I don't always feel like leaving the house to do chores -- though I always do. The horses and cattle can't water or feed themselves. Do you find comfort in Winter? Do you love it as much as I do, or do you wish we could skip it altogether? #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #fog #hoarfrost #horsesinsilhouette

Charlie and I did our second annual New Hope Christmas Parade!!! Besides not wanting to walk for like 10 miles, ๐Ÿ˜‚, he was a perfect angel. Or should I say reindeer. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Merry Christmas, everyone! ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐ŸฆŒ๐ŸŽ„ #farrierlife #equine #christmasparade #newhopechristmasparade #newhopechristmasparade2018 #newhope #newhopevirginia #charlie #charliethemini #minihorse #reindeer #elf #merrychristmas #parade #horsesofinstagram #ig_equine #farrier #equine
I'm four months into my new job, and I love it more every day. One of the highlights is that I spend a lot of my time out and about visiting places with, for example, the tiniest ponies I've ever seen. They were so cute and friendly I'm tempted to go back today with some carrots ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿด .

"It's the desire that's in them to just be with us. They could buck us off and run off with us everyday, but instead they want to go to work. That's pretty special. There aren't many other animals that do that". -- Nick Dowers . . . Dino is a special horse. He's taken care of me when I couldn't take care of myself. And he's going to continue to do so. When I throw a leg over him, I know I'm going to have a good day. I know I'm going to have a good ride. And I'm sure grateful I was chosen to call him mine. Do you have a heart horse like that? One that you know you can "go-to" and get the job done? One that will take care of you when you're having a bad day? One that will make your bad day better?

๐ŸŽถ It started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this... ๐ŸŽต Well, really it was a fall. More of a slip-off actually. And a there were teeth and bandages involved. In truth itโ€™s a pretty beautiful story. So hereโ€™s how it all started... I was about 2 or 3 years old at the time but I remember this story pretty vividly. There was a small festival ๐ŸŽก๐ŸŽ  organized in a park where I lived as a child. It was probably a weekend, as festivals usually are in my country, and my mom took me there. To *my*excitement, as my mom was pretty much scared of every animal ๐Ÿ™ˆ, there were ponies! Of course I had to go up to them! Since my mom was afraid, she kept her distance, so the horses owner put me on the brown Shetland (since my mom said white ones bite ๐Ÿ™ˆ). I was not satisfied. I wanted a sit on the white pony as well. The owner put me on the little white pony and I was happy, but not for long ๐Ÿ˜„. I had him put me back on the brown one, then on the white one and we did a few more switcheroos. It so happens that I slipped off one of them and landed right in front of the ponies to their surprise. All I remember from the next moments was my momโ€™s screams, rushing home, and bandages. What happened was they the pony took my arm, and from my momโ€™s, story picked me up after I fell. The horse didnโ€™t bite me ,didnโ€™t break any skin, but as a nurse my mom wasnโ€™t taking any chances. We had to go home and disinfect the โ€œwoundโ€. I remember not being scared or angry at moment. I was pretty calm and didnโ€™t think much of it. I was much more surprised at my momโ€™s reaction really. I even remember telling her that nothing happened and I wanted to go back to the ponies which of course she didnโ€™t allow ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜„. . . . Iโ€™d love to hear the first encounter you had with a horse or pony that you remember.

Today, as we take a day to focus on gratitude, I canโ€™t help but reflect on the fact that my life is incredibly charmed. I hope I reflect gratitude in my life, daily. . . . Iโ€™m grateful for so many things โ€” my partner and better half, the handsome @zachducheneaux , who provides an exceptional, stress-free life for me; who has cheered my accomplishments and cheered for my crazy ideas, who has believed in me when I doubted my own existence. Our family โ€” full of amazing individuals โ€” our talented, kind, thoughtful kids; a warm love-filled home (in our barn no less!); None of us want for anything. . . . My friends. Oh, my friends. My world is full of loyal, caring, thoughtful people that I can call at a momentโ€™s notice, who support my hopes and dreams and crazy ideas. They help me keep it real, donโ€™t let me quit when I might want to, and cheer me on for every little victory. . . . I have everything I could EVER want, ever need and ALL THE love to complete it. Iโ€™m rich in gratitude and blessings and those are the important things in life. . . . Thank you, from the bottom of my heart to everyone, including all of you who visit this little corner of my world to support me. Youโ€™re all part of my charmed life. . . . Happy Thanksgiving, friends. Hug your loved ones, watch some football, stuff your faces and give thanks for all your blessings. . . . #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #begratefulalways #happythankgiving #gratitudeisthebestattitude
