Blogfest #2: Realizing Horse Dreams

Published by • Jul 12th, 2008 • Category: Blogfest

Dream ItIn June 2007 Julia, our first ever Junior Blogger, wrote Realizing Your Horse Dreams: How to Get Started. What I love about Julia’s blog is that it goes beyond dreaming to doing. Anyone can dream, but if you never truly BELIEVE in your dream and DO something toward making it a reality, eventually the dream will fade away.

When you take steps to realize a dream, you may discover the dream changes shape, becoming more clear, more real. You’ll probably encounter obstacles that will challenge your determination and knock you on your bum. But if you keep getting back in the saddle (metaphorically speaking, or not) in the end you’ll be living a dream. And isn’t that better than sleeping your way through life?

So continuing what Madelaina started last month with our first ever Blogfest, when July submissions open on the 23rd you’re invited to share your story about realizing a horse dream. Maybe it’s something you’ve accomplished (or want to accomplish) for yourself, or maybe you have a story to tell about a friend who has realized her horse dream. Either way, we can all learn from and be inspired by one another.

In case you’re wondering, we’ll also accept regular submissions for the blog and LBC, along with stories from the GHC journalists who chose to accept the assignment to write a story about what inspires and informs the work of Terri Farley. Until then, have fun dreaming, doing, reading and writing!
