I didn’t grow up in a family where horses were front and center. I was the only one in my family bit with the rodeo/horse bug. For a few years we had several horses, as my kid brother @zachazeller and kid sister @meganmz79 rode too. But they moved on to other things. . . . I continued to immerse myself in horses. I never had the best rodeo horses money could buy: I had the best horses we could afford. I had to put in the work. We were blessed with a little luck, and good people who helped us find/finance those horses. That opened doors for me I never knew existed. . . . Now, I’m surrounded by really handy people who help me when I need it, encourage me when I’m down and who call me out when I’m being “somehow”. Teamwork makes the dream work!!! And I feel like it’s starting to come together. . . . My point in saying all this is that if you want it bad enough you’ll find a way. You’ll put in the work. You’ll keep trying. There were and certainly still are times when I am paralyzed with fear of failure or fear of the unknown that I wouldn’t even try. But those times are fewer and farther between. . . . So go, follow your dreams whatever they are.

Others can believe in your ability enough to push you off the ledge, but there comes a point when you have to believe in yourself to take the next steps. - - - They can’t believe it for you.... - - - Until you believe it for yourself, nothing will change. - - - I’ve heard this for years. I’m finally starting to understand. - - - Find yourself inspired by @findingmastery and @reidpriddy. It is some of the best material you could immerse yourself in if you want to better yourself as a person, or as an athlete. My better half has told me for years: “I can’t believe it for you”. I know he can’t. And I’ve lacked a lot of belief in myself about a lot of things. I’m doing my best to let go of perfection, be in the moment, breathe and realize that NOTHING in the future is more important than the here and now. I don’t know if I’ll ever get it completely nailed down, but I’m going to give it my best effort.

Happy Wednesday friends! Hope it was a good one! What did you do? We built electric fence, loaded and unloaded 100 bales of hay, did the usual chores, and rode...time for wine! at Ducheneaux Quarter Horses

She’s every dream I’ve ever had wrapped up into one special package. To say my heart is happy would be an understatement. The best gift her mother could have given me was her. I love her siblings too, but this one here, she’s got her mother’s fire. 🔥 #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #dxandthecity #fearthelittleredhorse #love at Ducheneaux Quarter Horses

If we tell ourselves something is hard, it’s hard. But if we tell ourselves “it’s easy” or “it’s not hard”, we set ourselves up to be successful. This is my goal this week — to take life one step at a time and say, “I can try!” #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #hifromsd #reflection at Ducheneaux Quarter Horses

I’m beginning to understand that progress is like a staircase. If you take one step, the next one lights up. And sometimes all you can do is take that *one* step. Just. One. But by taking that one step, the next step will light up and when you’re ready for another step, the path is there. Sometimes we (I) get so overwhelmed with seeing where we (I)think we (I) need/ or want to go that we (I) don’t even take a step. But I can take the next step if I break it down that way. Don’t see the mountain, see the path to the top — one step at a time.

I have never had this much trouble with a name. A chromed out filly for whom I have big dreams, needs a name as powerful as she is. In the meantime, who has big plans for the weekend? Avie and I are headed down the trail - first run, Spearfish, SD, followed by Belle Fourche. Then home for a day and half before we are up in Mobridge and then Mandan, SD. We will also be taking over the @southdakota instagram account starting Sunday night! Come along in the journey and tell me what you’re doing for the Holiday! #thedxranch #horses #horsesofinstagram #aqha #aqhaproud #youholdmyheart #equine #equineart #photography #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #foalfriday #fourthofjuly #prettiestfilly at Sturgis, South Dakota

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of a horse’s velvet muzzle and warm breath on your neck - thank you so much to @circlezrancharizona for capturing me in that moment, and giving me something by which I can always remember my experience at @cdphotog’s wonderful workshop at @thedxranch 💙 . . . #horsesofinstagram #horses #aqha #aqhaproud #equine #equineart #ranchlife #ag #photooftheday #igers #instagood #instahorses_post #equinephotography #equinephotos #ig_equine #bestofequines #horselove #horselovers #country_features #grayhairdontcare #50shadesofgrey #southdakotagram #southdakotalife #southdakota #cdphotogworkshopjune2018 #thedxranch #heart_imprint #thatmoment #curlyhair #curlygirlsrock at Eagle Butte, South Dakota
