Thought it was time to share the fun again with this award....Please accept this, my friends, knowing that I appreciate all you are to me here and also what you are to your Equine partner(s).

I adore Kate over at "A YEAR WITH HORSES" She always has practical horsemanship knowledge, laced with humor to share. She inspires me.

I also want impart this award upon a new - local -riding friend. Michelle from

"Chocolate and Marmalade Tea" She totally impressed me with her willingness to try new things when we met last week to ride at my place. Her caring nature towards the horse by wanting to learn; why we do -what we do, as we groom and tack up. She allowed me to share everything I could think of, as we readied for an adventure. It was her first trail ride on an English saddle. She did wonderfully and I now claim her as a "permanent riding partner", having come along when I had lost one.
ENJOY you lovely women!!!

This Award is dedicated to those Horse lovers and riders that inspire others to go deeper in ability, knowledge and understanding of the Equine(s) they have been entrusted to.

The good of the horse is the ultimate goal apart from pressures to achieve ribbons and fit into lesson schedules.

These riders are fearless, when it comes to weather conditions and the forecasting of them...being with their horses, fills these folks' soul and takes the cares out of daily routines.

They are unconditionally loving to the horse and may have rescued it from known ailment or living condition. Others have researched and purchased/ acquired their horse, to find a difficulty in temperament or a physical burden within the animal. Yet, Being dedicated , they have persevered to proudly be in partnership with their horse, lovingly striving for deeper awareness's between them.

They might have been riding for years and suddenly had an accident that takes them away from the great joy and freedom they have, being aboard such a magnificent animal. They have allowed the healing horse to rise in their hearts once again, and beckon them back~

INTREPID RIDERS FACTION ~We strive to go where others only dare to go with our horse loves...healing, riding, playing, camping, jumping, swimming and traveling down the trails of life. . . . with the horse in Heart~Overcoming many obstacles and sometimes weather, to ride!

I really wanted to follow through with something I have wanted to do here in bloggerville, Create an award. Actually, it is a symbol or an emblem to show for loving their wonderful Equine in a special way, the way only they can and have.

It honors the unique bond they have for going the distance understanding the needs of their entrusted Horse(s).

Awards make me feel good...not so much(sometimes) that a specific award was given to me, but that someone thought of me for an award. This one is thoughtful because it is specific.

This award was born out of many people calling me a name...not a bad name, but one that I rather liked.


After looking up the meaning, I agreed. I added the "Faction" to the Awards name; because I rarely fit into any large, organized group of people I find. I tend to stand out for being misread and judged for my joyful abandon to try things with my horse and to inspire others to do the same. Fear is not my normal response to things ... just a desire to achieve higher understanding of what may lay ahead of me with my mare. I always seek out knowledgeable and caring individuals to assist me, in any quest I may look into.

I am taking with me the good I have gleaned from others and am leaving the dust of the bad behind me, not allowing it to fetter my supreme desire to be all I can be -as a rider to my mare and also- to allow- her to be the Equine athlete she truly is!
