My Ontario Girls

Spring has sprung and with the long winter across all of America, our new favorite color is green! I know we all have different planting zones but I couldn’t resist this weekend planting my garden.

Heartbreak and Blessings

By Trina | April 21, 2014

Once again I am blessed and heart broken. Over a year ago we lost our son in a tragic accident. I say our son, as since Jesse was 12 he had been riding at our clinics, and when he was 16 he came to the ranch and lived with me or traveled with Peter down…
