Sage, 26+ years young, has been my dance partner, sounding board, confidant, life coach and best friend for over 21 years!
I semi-retired Sage in Aug 2016 after she was diagnosed with cushings or PPID, a common disease in older horses.
Before her full retirement in Sept 2017, we took our last BB ride. After that we didn't ride, we didn't play....we didn't do much of anything.
The last 5 years have been spent building her immunity and playing with Rhett almost exclusively.
Fast forward to Aug 2022, Sage made an announcement at the barn that she was ready to play and ride. She wanted a chance to earn treats LOL! She was finally feeling better!
Sage and I have explored in depth the areas of liberty, online, ground driving, long lining, long reining, and in-hand....all which combined creates good, essential groundwork!!
Enjoy two of our latest intrinsically motivated videos. The liberty video shows Sage in all her badass-ery! The riding video is our 3rd ride in 5 years, it's like we ride everyday!
Sage is one of the creators of FUNctional Movement and Motivational Horsemanship.
