My husband and I fell in love with horses and mountains on a family vacation to Montana. To get away from the Arizona summer heat, we went every summer.
After my son started college we decided to buy our first horses. What a disaster ! Eventually we did find 2 well broke Tennessee Walkers that we rode in the Arizona mountains, across rivers no less! We were so new to all this, trusting our new friends with their horses , we felt no fear crossing rushing water waist deep. NOW, 20 years later? You would not be able to get me to do that for love or money!
We relocated to Columbia , SC with our 2 horses, dogs, and kitties and set up Morningstar Farms.
Suddenly, finding myself on 40 acres, instead of a postage stamp, my horse collection grew!
We enjoyed 10 years of breeding and raising Tennessee Walkers; getting involved with rescue organizations , and trail riding with friends.
Advancing age, and health issues are forcing us to scale down.
Our dream was to find a place in the mountains with trails right outside our door. Loading up horses in the trailer and driving hours was no longer do-able.
We found our 'Catbird Seat' , as my husband has named our beautiful home on top of the mountain surrounded by nature's beauty.
With retirement still a few years off, we enjoy our cabin on occasional weekends. I want to share the peaceful feeling of these mountains with others. When my guests arrive home after a few days, or week in these tranquil surroundings, they can pass that feeling onto their family and friends. It will make the world a better place.
