"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,

**** 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.

Long lines galore

Last 3 mos update: I started with the long lines driving....and man, that is alot of rope. The 22' line is a bit heavy for me at times since the accident and surgery. We started off by playing with an obstacle course and 22'line. Good way to get back into the groove. Shows me where I need to do the fine tuning with Rose. So I put on a 12' to get the games tuned up. Getting off the couch and out in the yard is a tough one. My husband has offered to play with me to help keep me company and motivated. Say what?! 16yrs never heard that before. I went to the tack room and pulled out the 45' line. Wow...that is alot of dust! I decided I am going to the rope store to get some new skinnier rope and make 2 long lines to drive with. Mine is one looooong one and I get caught up in it and so does she. I also decided to use a surcingle. My arms are just to weak to keep the rope out from under her feet......and she loves to step over the rope. She knows it makes me stop and regroup. BRAT!
