A Birthday Special announcement

Special Birthday – Birthday Special!

By Trina | January 29, 2021

On Saturday (January 30th), I’ll blow out 50 candles on my birthday cake. I can think of no better way to celebrate my birthday, than to offer a special on my 2021 clinics, for my students all over Canada and the US! Please stay tuned on my Trina’s Horsemanship Clinics Facebook page where I will be making the…

False Idols

By Trina | January 24, 2021

Why do people seem to “look up” to people on TV? This I can’t seem to figure out. I mean, I did, when I was young watching Hercules, Mr. Dressup and the Friendly Giant while eating puffed wheat for breakfast. But here’s the thing about those shows: They inspired me. Skipping to the tune of the…

Walter’s Wisdoms – Part 1

By Trina | January 13, 2021

What comes easy, won’t last.What lasts, won’t come easy. Pops was always right. I sure do miss him and his quiet ways. He would watch me work horses for hours. And on frustrating days, he’d say “There’s always tomorrow kid”. He taught me….. no, he showed me through his life, his honesty, his loyalty and love of the…

The First Change

By Trina | January 10, 2021

Sometimes it’s hard to not let the behavior of others destroy our inner peace. But you will never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart. Sometimes our hearts get covered up by the grease and grime of the world. And the nay sayers build cobwebs, making it most difficult for the mind to feel…

…..I wouldn’t have walked away

By Trina | January 6, 2021

I saw this a few days ago, and I have to agree…it hit me different. 2020, if nothing else, has taught me that people’s actions way out prove their words. And though it breaks my heart to its core when friends, clients, students let go of the friendship, help and relationship – God has always…

Seek Joy In Finding The Truth

By Trina | December 20, 2020

Sunday morning vibes! Friendships are built on many ideas – truth, loyalty and love are on the top of that list. Jesse may weigh 8lb and Elena 150lb, but he trusts her to not hurt him, and she protects him. If we watched Mother Nature a bit more, there are most definitely black and white survival truths.…

Building more than fence

By Trina | December 6, 2020

As I was putting the last screws in the fence, the dusk was changing to dark. The clangor of the drill ceased and I could hear nothing, and everything all at once….. Nothing cures the inside and the outside of us quite like hard work, sweat, blisters that turn to calluses and the sight of…

The Heart Of Horsemanship Podcast

By Trina | November 12, 2020

As I did a Podcast interview with Maredith and Colton Woods on October 29th, the dogs gracefully stayed quiet for the 2 hr visit  (Pic or it didn’t happen, right?!) Their questions were well thought out and I was impressed, much like I was 3 years ago when I met them. They had asked me what keeps…

The Mountain

By Trina | August 27, 2020

So, not all days are great…not all weeks are great. My friend talks to me about Matthew 13 and weeds and wheat. Life is this ever changing journey and sometimes the mountain side is steep and covered in weeds. But there will always be flowers, bushes and trees to help guide the way… and finding our…
