It is like all the other places I’ve lived….and completely foreign at the same time.
Dust hangs in the valley long after pickups and cattle have passed through.
Pigs and turkeys make their evening stroll off the hillside right around 8pm and bear and lion tracks pepper either side of the creek here by the house.
The heat is different. In the high desert you need a coat until 8am at least, and the earliest I’ve ridden out here has been 4am and I was already too warm for my thin shirt. It’s beautiful and exhausting and wonderful and I’m so happy I could bust. The horses I’m riding feel like they are getting more and more badass with every day and I’m braiding at night. Life is good.
After a year of observing and researching Shakeology, I became a Beachbody coach and am using their shakes and workout programs. I decided to become a coach because healthy eating and exercise changed my life and saved me from almost certain death from Lyme disease. The joy of getting my life back and being able to ride my horses thanks to a different lifestyle made me want to help other people feel the same way I do now! If you’re interested, here’s my website! Take a look around and if you have any questions, please just ask!
Believe in yourself, because if you can’t, no one else will.
