"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!

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

He's finally home...great progress!

OMG....today was the big day. Shelter is built, corral built....time to come home. Getting him in the trailer was going to be the issue....and was the issue. I wanted to try the slow way first, trailer at the end of the barn, but it was a no go. The barn owner suggested we make a shute with the panels and squeze him in. I was not happy with it, but with an unhaltered, untamed mustang, he left us no choice. I was terrified one or all of us was going to get hurt. I left it in the hands of the "expert" and he finally was in. The whole ordeal, my way plus her way, plus shute construction took an hour and a half. He didn't make a peep all the way home. He came out with out incident, loved grazing on the grass in his corral, something he hasn't done for 7yrs, and generally did not seem upset. Whew. I spent most of the after noon with him, and was able to make huge progress. I brushed and cut his mane (unsalvagable) touched him with my hands for the first time down his right front foot to the hoof, and all the way down his back and rump! He lets me walk right up to him now and pet him straight away. I think this is the best thing that has happened to him since he was kidnapped from his freedom 7 yrs ago.
