"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

** 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

First Trot outside 2/4/10

What a wonderful week for Cha'Cote. He has been able to graze and move about all but one day this week. He has been stellar. We are now playing outside with the fig 8, circle, sideways and his first trot stick to me from behind. The tape is unedited, filmed by my 11yo son Jason. What a trooper he is. You can't see it in the video, but it was starting to rain and the wind was really picking up. Before filming began, Cha'Cote helped me dump his wheel barrel, and at one point took a few trot steps, so I figured I would actually TRY by asking him to trot. In the video are my first 3 attemps where he did NOT trot, and then three times where he did. He was very calm the whole time and had a nice cadence to his trot. Can't wait to see what we come up with this weekend. What ever it is, you will surely be the first to know!
