Faith + Aerion

Where do I even begin the story of me and Aerion? I received my first horse when I was nine years old. She was an old competitive mounted shooting quarter horse named Reba. Reba was my best friend for years until she was called up to greener pastures. I was devastated when she…

Kim + Cajun

I had always had horses. I had a farm of my own for 14 years, but due to divorce I placed all of my horses and could no longer have any. I went around 10 years without one. Then I met Cajun. I was going through a rough time, as my daughter’s husband at the time was on his way…

My journey with River began when I was a toddler just coming out of diapers, some 47 years ago. There’s not a time that I can recall never loving horses. I was a typical tomboy, horse-crazy, farm girl who believed that God meant for me to be a horse. My first horse came…

Laura + Nick
