Embracing Unbridled Freedom: Overcoming Fear and Building Connection with Your Horse

  Recently, I had the pleasure of hosting a live episode in our Unbridled Freedom private Facebook group, where we tackled a topic that resonates deeply with many of us – overcoming the fear of falling. The response was incredible, and it's heartening to see so many women engaging in this important conversation.

The Amazing Mind

The mind is an amazing thing.It’s deeply connected to the emotional part of this amazing vessel we identify as I or Me.It’s that part that allows us to get totally wrapped up in the moment.Lost in a good book for the afternoon, enthralled in a great movie.
