Working with artists and musicians in Chicago and L.A. was exciting and fulfilling, but a soul-searching Mexico trip helped rekindle my long-held love of horses and my desire to be surrounded by nature.
Soon after, I jumped “back in the saddle,” leased a horse named Cowboy, and learned many lessons from him before finding my own two “ponyz,” Cricket and Ace. Following a natural approach while caring for these sensitive creatures guided me to seek beautiful land where they could live without being stalled.
The Land of Enchantment called, and Two Ponyz Ranch was born!
The horses and I easily adjusted to living at Two Ponyz Ranch, as I readily embraced New Mexican life. I have made many friends in Mountainair, and I’ve found purpose for two vital aspects of myself—passion to inspire children to express themselves creatively and determination to live more harmoniously with the earth.
If you visit Two Ponyz, you’ll see solar panels atop the Guest Casita (make Guest Casita active link in all text) and main house. As a guest, you will be asked to recycle, compost, and conserve water (a scarce resource in the Southwest). You will also see a variety of rain tanks, compost prized by local organic gardeners, and an organic hoop house garden (currently being renovated)—all signs of my attempts to live clean and green.
My work with the local art council, writing grants and creating youth outreach programs within the local high school and nearby Land Grants, offers many children and teens a safe place to nurture their creative expression while learning about arts and culture.
Two Ponyz Ranch reflects my deepest desires, beliefs, and commitments. I have built it as a place to reconnect with nature, relax, and soulfully restore. And I invite you to enjoy this naturally beautiful place too.
