"A horse is like a mirror, and it's reflecting what and who you are."

This is just a little diary of my horse life. I teach natural horsemanship and dressage. I am currently working on getting back to L4 Parelli after a car accident and surgery.

I suffered from a fear of failure, as things had not gone according to planned after my time off from my injuries. It had been an paralyzing disability (fear) but my healing is coming along nicely, and I hope to pass my level 4 before the end of 2011.

I don't know where I am going, but I am NOT lost!

I am now reviewing dvd's and books, and blogging my reviews. The link on the left in the categories (DVD Clinician Reviews)will take you straight to it. You will find links to the websites of all dvd clinicians I review and they are located on the left hand side bottom of page of the page. None of the clinicians or trainers I am reviewing, sponsor, endorse or authorize this site. For more info about them please click on thier link.

I hope you enjoy!

Savvy On,

I will be giving Savvy Star Ratings based soley on my opinion of it's value to a parelli student as such

***** Must own

**** Must watch

*** Worth watching, but you won't die without it

** Eh' take it with a grain of salt, you will have to filter alot

* OK, but there is better stuff out there to spend your time and money on

0 stars....skip it, it just isn't worth your time.

Hill therapy off to a good start

Snookie is doing well on her new diet, is getting about 3 baths a week now. Everyone is towing the line with the routine and not getting as jealous. I purchased an enzyme supplement for her today. Hopefully those will help her. She is doing well on hill therapy too. She has had hip/hock problems with her right hind for years now so she doesn’t do as well going to the right. We walked 6 circles to the left, then 4 to the right then 4 to the left on a hill that is . I only make her go to the right till I see her start to shake on that leg. First day was 3 circles right, last night 4. I think I will go to a less steep hill tonight and try trotting a bit. Maybe rotate 1 day trotting 1 day walking 1 day flat with cavaletti.. For more info on Hill Therapy google “parelli hill therapy” We should be riding at a walk this weekend and taping L2 freestyle no later than 9-13-09. I have a wild idea for my audition….but it is my little secret for now…
