Mango learning to selfie 😎😜😍❤️
Thanking God after he answers a prayer is gratitude. Thanking Him in advance is faith. ❤️❤️❤️ how lucky are we to have such a loving God, in good and bad times God is always so good to us☺️
Honey tell me how your love runs true
And how I can always count on you. 🎶🐎💞☺️
Happy heart ☺️❤️🌤
This is how mud smears end up on everyone’s car 😬😅😂🤦♀️
If you believe it will work out, you’ll see opportunities. If you believe it won’t, you will see obstacles. 🙌🏻😊🐎💞
It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later ❤️ this journey has been amazing, and it was a dream come true for all of us to come out for this internship. While it is hard to believe a month has come and gone , the memories we made will last a lifetime. We learnt so much, not only about horses but ourselves too. It has been a blessing to share our love of horses with one another, and form friendships that will continue on well past this internship. Thanks a million to @reata for this opportunity, words can’t express how thankful we all are for your help this past month. ( 📸 cred : @nicolepoyo )
Happy thanksgiving everyone! I am so grateful for so much in my life, it is a blessing to get to do what I love , have some great horses in my life and even better people that guide and support me chasing my dreams. Being out here in Wyoming has been a dream come true, I am so grateful God has gifted me such an incredible opportunity. Life can be challenging at times but I know when I leave it in His hands, God will continue to guide me according to His will. ❤️❤️❤️ be anxious for nothing , but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving , let your requests be made known to god; and the peace of god, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28.
This is why groundwork is such an important training tool ! Pair that with a great minded pony and a handy ‘cowgirl in training’ and there was no doubt that the first ride was gonna be a success ☺️🙌🏻🐎 Love mango the roany pony 💞
Apparently we were the only ones amused with getting a family photo 😂😜🤷🏼♀️😬
“The horse is very sensitive. He can feel a fly land on him. I know you all know this, because you put fly spray on your horses. He can feel a fly land on him, yet you’re tugging on him, pulling on him like he weighs a million pounds. You’re not working with what nature gave you; your destroying what nature gave you” - Ray Hunt. 🐎 it never ceases to amaze me how sensitive horses truly are, we have been applying this concept into everything we have been working on. Here we were getting the horses to track the heel-o-matic by using our weight and energy to speed up and slow down our horses. 😁
Day 23: Old Yeller! Today we rode out to gather a young group of feral horse. We spread out along the hills to push them in...was on this little yellow guy: Ol’ Yeller. Was great to have him out there as my partner for the day. I don’t think I could ever get tired of this view! ☀️🌄🐴 #hereyeller #bestdoggonedoginthewest #horsesofinstagram #houlihanranch
Well it finally happened yesterday, a pheasant flew up and tried to murder me while riding 😂😂😂🙄🤦♀️
Got to move some feral horses to a different pasture today. This was as close as I had to get to put the pressure on to get them to move. It is so amazing how sensitive and aware a horse can be before humans start to interfere with things. We were able to control the horses from this kind of distance and successfully get them to their new pasture (with no chaos) closer to home before winter arrives tomorrow 😰❄️❄️❄️🐎😁
The space between life and death, that’s where we are the most alive. ✌🏻🐎❤️🌚
Wyoming has my heart ❤️🌤🌾
Walking on the moon 🌚🌝🐎❤️
I am sure no one is surprised that I suggested we jump the horses tonight 😂😜😎 Had a blast getting to jump patty cakes for her first time, she def has a back up career 😍😏🙌🏻
You can either choose to wait around and hope life gives you what you want - or you can choose to jump up and put in the work to make your dream come true. 🙌🏻😁🐎❤️
Good morning from Wyoming ☺️😎😍 bringing the horses in ❤️🐎
Going to find cows always presents some good training opportunities, love this mare! She is always game for what I ask of her , you would never know she is just a green four year old. When you have a good foundation, you can be confident when asking your horse to try something new ☺️🐎💞
First simple rule in life: if you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. ☺️💞🐎🐮
First time ever roping so may as well do it horseback and on the heel-o-matic 🤷🏼♀️😜 so much fun ! 😎
Got Bandit some new gear to bring home 😍🤤😎🐎💞

Had my first rattle snake encounter yesterday, a bit too close for comfort 😅 it is true that you will know the sound even if you haven’t heard it before 😜😂😐🐍

Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us. ☺️💞🐴☀️
How to make a quiet horse 101 😂😜😎🐎💞
Day 4 was a great one!
Happy with the effort Dempsey Is putting in for me.
A country artist came to the ranch to shoot his music video and asked to used him in some of the shots which was pretty cool!
Also got to cuddle with a real cute pony...which I think no matter how old I get will always be my favorite thing to do. #Dempsey’smomentoffame #beautifulday #horsesofinstagram #Hanoverian #houlihanranch #neverstoplearning #horsemanshipjourney
Grateful heart ❤️❤️❤️
I could get used to this 😏😁🙌🏻😍
Mango “wow I really am as cute as the girls keep saying I am” 👀😂😍❤️
Post 3: Dempsey sees his first cow!
He sure was worried he was going to be their dinner! So lesson number 1 was how to introduce him to them! Thanks to Reata, he gained some confidence and now shares a pasture with a few!
He is living in a large heard of horses here. So happy to see him this way! Learning to “horse”! #cowhorseinthemaking??? #horsesofinstagram #houlihanranch #livingthedream
Arrived to Sheridan late last night!
The trip took longer than planned but we made it safe.
Pictures don’t do the country I saw any justice.
So many beautiful sights.
Thankful for Dempsey who was willing to get back on the trailer each day...was definitely a long ride for him!
I was able to find two very nice farms to let him rest at overnight. Both operations were owned by such kind people.
Hit a few road blocks along the way...such as the crazy flooding across the highways in South Dakota!
Getting settled in today. Excited for the weeks to come!
Thank you Reata and Gabe for having us! #houlihanranch #internship #horsemanshipjourney #thehanoveriancowhorse 🙃
It’s a hard life being cute 😂😂😂😂😍😍❤️🐷
Day 28...our last day. 😩😭But one of the best yet!
Roped some cows and squeezed in one last ride out to see the mountains. Going to miss these ladies, the horses and the views. Thank you so much Reata, Gabe and Mary for such an incredible month! 💕🐴🌄🤠 #thatwentbytoofast #idontwanttoleave #wyoming #houlihanranch #horsesofinstagram
