A little about me...
I was born and raised on Wyoming ranches. I'm a long-time horseback riding instructor & horse trainer. A former barrel racer & heeler and general all-around working cowgirl. My students and I show May through Oct. I am not retired-I ride almost daily & have client horses that have to be worked 6 dys/wk., in addition to my teaching schedule. Not that I give a whit about astrology; but, I am a true Capricorn, the most serious sign of the Zodiac. A type-A personality. I have to admit I was a true Daddy's Girl.
I spent 2 years of my 20 years in Alaska in "bush"-type Alaska - no power/plumbing/heat/water, NO amenities, even getting back and forth from car to cabin meant pulling at least your own weight across the Matanuska River by hand-pulled cable car. I have a home in Westminster, CO & still have strong ties to my home state - Wyoming, as I have a home in Lander and my kids have a place near Jeffrey City.
I'm in the middle of remodeling my house and sure hope it's done by the time show season starts in May! Worst case scenario Fall. Well, that has come and gone!! Now, I am PRAYING, Spring!!
About the one I'm looking for...
Looking for a life-time relationship with someone who is my equal. I want to be treated with respect; but, love a little roughhousing once in a while, too - if getting elbowed would tick you off at me, then we probably would not work out. My brother was 11 years older than I and tortured me unmercifully. Maybe why I've always been tough. I think a couple needs to have similiar political and religious views, along with like core values, to have a remarkable relationship. My parents were married almost 60 years and that is what I aspired to, fate said differently, I lost my husband in 1997. My next marriage did not work out. I am an ambiavert so it is hard for acqaintances to get to know all the facets of the REAL me. My FRIENDS; however, DO!
I'd just like to add...
I don't discuss politics or religion, at least with people I want to REMAIN friends with. :) Favorite movies: I took my grandson at age 4 to his very 1st movie so it will always be on "My Favorites" List, "Vertical Limt" w/Scott Glenn. "Soldier Blue", "2001, A Space Odyssey", "Dances w/Wolves", "A River Runs Through it", "Legends of the Fall", "The Big Land", "Heavens Gate". Books:"The Covenant", "Wildfire", "Riders of the Purple Sage", "The Ladies Book Club","Small Sacrifices", "Hunger Games" Trilogy, "Millenium Series. Actors, Wes Studi-Geronimo, Keven Costner-Waterworld, Anthony Hopkins-Silence of the Lambs, Mel Gibson-Braveheart and Liz Taylor for far too many to name. I have always thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PHOTO OR YOUR GREETING READS LIKE THIS: "A little about me"..."I will tell you later - send me a message." OR YOUR "ABOUT THE ONE I'M LOOKING FOR" is an empty field. OR your "I'd just like to add"..."says, "send me a message". DO NOT CONTACT ME. I have a hard time finding time for this and don't have time for games. If you are into flirts and such, please pass me by - same for chatting. If you want real, send me a message. I'd love to hear from you.

My Top Interests:
Nature and Outdoors
I am outdoors as much as possible. I'm lucky that what I do for a living - I LOVE - and it is all done outdoors! Trail riding in the mountains for a picnic lunch - nothing better. Or, overnight camping with horses, AWESOME!
Seeing a new release on The Big Screen is just NO comparison to seeing it on TV, NO matter the size or quality of sound. Yep, the snacks are expensive, oh well!
I love what I do. Nothing beats the high of having a horse in training that is not doing great and then the lightbulb goes on and ZOOM, they can't learn fast enough. The feeling I get teaching a youngster all I know is priceless. Some of my students started with me when they were only 4 years old.
