Synchronicity, aka Faith, is my 1999 mare by the Trakehner stallion Sieg and out of my beloved Arabian mare, Hope. 

When she was a baby we showed in 1/2 Arabian Sport Horse In Hand, where she was nearly undefeated and was Region II Reserve Champion.  Her high score was an 89% under the

late Victor Hugo-Vidal.  We now do dressage at open shows, where Faith likes to quote Forest Gump... a show with Faith is like a box of chocolates. 

You never know what you're gonna get!

 

She has taught me SO MUCH!  Faith is extremely smart and feels it is her duty to make sure I learn as much as possible about the importance of everything in her world.

 

Due to her extreme intelligence, she was the one that made me look into an alternative way of interacting with horses (Mark Rashid). 

Due to her mystery lameness as a 4 year old, she is the one that made me look into an alternative way of trimming the hooves (natural hoofcare). 

Due to her expressive personality, she is the one that made me look for an alternative way of thinking about saddle fit (Balance saddling systems). 

Due to her energetic constitution, she is the one that made me look further into the equine diet.

Due to her sensitivity, she is the one that made me ever more aware of my riding position and the importance of being light in both aids and mentality.

 

Faith is a small but mighty force in my life, and our trials have bonded us.  May she never stop teaching!
