....it was back when Adams Arabians and Chuck Kibler had a lovely bay colt named TOP CONTENDER. My friend Ruth and I made the journey to Scottsdale from very, very cold and icy, River Falls, Wisconsin in her little Toyota Corolla! WOW, the memories. We hired ourselves out as portable grooms and Adams contacted us and actually hired us to assist! Thus, I can say that I GROOMED Contender!!! I loved the 1980s in the Arabian breed...the sales, the people watching...I remember when we went to Paradise Park for the first time, after dreaming of going to Scottsdale from the time I was about 15...talk about STAR STRUCK....
Wayne Newton, Kenny Rogers, Nichols/DeLongpre, Sheila Varian and on and on...
Yes, of course I'll be blogging more as days go by about my Scottsdale experiences through the years, but just wanted to give you a tease!
I no longer show at Scottsdale, but I LOVE to work on horses and assist them to stay at top performance and CALM during the show. Many of these horses come from long distances and are pushed so incredibly hard during a 2-4 week period and without a doubt massage therapy and Reiki are HUGE factors in keeping each of them more balanced, healthier and calmer! I am available ALL DAY Saturday-Monday (starting this weekend 2/6) until the end of the show. I am also available for sessions after 3 p.m. EVERY DAY.
Sessions are $65...if you buy 2 for the same horse, the second session is $45...so the package is $110.
Special notes: Healing Light to Sheila Varian who is continuing to fight cancer and has done so with such determination and strength to this point. Sheila has been a huge inspiration in my life and in no doubt thousands of lives!
