Sandra Currier - Head Trainer at Bluebonnet Farms, Very Accomplished American Saddlebred trainer, rider AND sidesaddle rider!
Leslie Oconner - the Assistant Trainer at Bluebonnet Farms. Equitation Instructor and rider extrodinaire and up and coming sidesaddle instructor.. well actually - she already is (forced by me!) but it is now impossible to hide my mistakes from her!
This is Thayleigh.. one of my Zumba instructors. You may find it interesting that I included she and Sarah (below) in this post, but it is with their help that I have doubled my stamina for riding and more specifically trotting asisde, increasing my strength and DECREASING my weight!.... by the way, Thayleigh is the Mother of TRIPLETS!!!!..and I want her abs!!!
Still have a ways to go with these ladies, but thanks to them, I am not only doing it, but having a blast at the same time!!! Sarah is pictured below, also has 3 children ~ only with different birth dates!
Then there is this guy, whom I love to the depth of my soul.... even though he does not ride, faithfully helps to care for all of our animals including too many horses... has agreed to live above a barn (for now) instead of a traditional house and supports me all the way... or to just quote him, " I learned a long time ago that when you set your heart on doing something, it would be easier to stop an avalanche!"
