Zeus the Zebra doing his thing ;) Zeus put on a great show yesterday here at Cheyenne Frontier Days! This was one of his first solo shows he's ever put on and the crowd loved him! Zena & Terk were nearby for support of course:) He helped me talk about zebra behavior and humane training methods to build relationships with exotics.. Just love him ❤️#zebra #zebras #zebratraining #horsemanship #equine #horsetraining #horsesofinsta #exoticanimals #stripes #mustangmaddy #libertyhorse #tricktraining #zoo #zooanimals
Zebras, no problem! Maddy develops unique relationships with each of the animals she works with.
Living a life of abundance vs a life of scarcity. Tick, tock.. Never enough time in the day. Bills to pay.. Never enough money. Your only chance.. Never enough opportunity. Stay with him, even if he hurts you.. Never enough love. Falling into a fear of scarcity. Never enough. What would it look like if we lived a life of abundance? There is always enough.. Enough time. Enough money. Enough opportunity. Enough love. Which will you choose? I choose abundance. #MustangMaddy #wordstoliveby #cowgirl #freespirit #wildhorse #horsemanship #horsetraining
Mustangs remain in holding pens across the West. Maddy enjoys showing the public how adaptable these horses are to a new life with people. She hopes to help increase awareness about these beautiful creatures.
Doesn’t look like horses and zebras are the only ones learning. Maddy believes they can teach us a lot as well!
"…perhaps this is why we fall in love with the American Mustang…Because we see in the mustang what we see in ourselves; the part of ourselves that has been constricted by the beliefs that we aren’t good enough, pretty enough, rich enough, smart enough, etc to follow our hopes & dreams. But look at what happens when you believe in the mustang…when you believe in yourself! And so, for every person that has been told they can’t, the mustang tells them, they can." -Madison Shambaugh, aka "Mustang Maddy" #MustangMaddy #MustangFever #TeamBay #wildhorses #horsemanship Impulse Photography!
