This classic quote will always be relevant, to any horse lover. This lovely photo was taken by Kimberly Chason (Chason Photos & Art) of my Friesian gelding Douwe. My custom dress was made by Rhonda Kirkpatrick in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine. Douwe's custom medieval tack was made by Lisa Oberman (El Sueno Espanol).

I love this quote by Jensen Siaw. Sometimes you just need to ignore all the negative voices, especially the ones in your head, and just go for it!
I prefer to wake up and chase my dreams on my Friesian horse! Please feel free to share this image on social media. I create these motivational images for others to use and enjoy. To go behind-the-scenes on this Red Riding Hood inspired photo shoot click here.
In this photo I am enjoying a jazz dance with Rovandio. He is getting so much better at his liberty work, graduating to just the neck rope. Hopefully soon he will be able to perform without it. He is a lot different than Douwe but is learning at his own pace and I am starting to see his personality blossom. I love this quote because it sums up the nature of liberty work. It truly is an improvised dance between human and horse. Wonderful things happen spontaneously and I savor the moments that something unexpected but magical happens. This photo was taken by Kimberly Chason. Please share this quote with anyone that might appreciate it.
This beautiful photo was taken of me and Douwe by Kimberly Chason a few years ago. We were staying at Southern Oaks Equestrian Center in Tallahassee, FL owned by my friend Marsha Sapp. Kimberly is an amazing photographer and works with some of her photos to create a piece of art that can be purchased as a print or on canvas.
This quote is so simple and yet so true! Have you ever watched a dancer without music? Or enjoyed great music without feeling the desire to dance? Probably not! I cannot listen to music without imagining a horse moving with it, what movement would we perform, what would be the perfect gait or tempo? I am sure you are the same! This photo was taken at an open house performance at Safe Haven Farm in Durham, ME a few years ago. I am riding Douwe with dancer Lydia Rose Spencer. Her split leaps are amazing aren't they!? I love the fan veils she incorporated into that routine. I have included a video clip of that routine down below. Please feel free to save and share this quote/image and make sure to follow me on Pinterest where I have a board for Inspiring Horse Quotes.
"We don't create a fantasy world to escape reality, we create it to be able to stay."
I can relate to this quote because I love to daydream and play fantasy dress-up with my horse. This photo was taken of Douwe on the set of Essential Realism, an indie film that we acted in a few years ago. I played the part of Queen's head archer riding a beautiful, black unicorn. The film is not yet finished but I will certainly share information when it is ready!
