"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

A new horse

What a wonderful weekend with Cha’cote. I still can’t believe how light he is, and how he really puts forth a lot of effort into the “try”. He is hyper perceptive, but not hyper active. He see’s everything, yet is so calm. He does have his ‘I’m a wild horse” moments, but at this stage of the game, Snookie’s right brain out bursts are far worse than his. When he does get scared, he is over it quicker than it starts, unlike Snookie the everlasting RBE. When she goes right brain, she can take a really long time to come off the adrenaline. Many moons ago, it may take her hours even a day to recover from a serious moment. Not him, when it is over, it is OVER. I love that. I think a lot of it has to do with him being able to come out of the corral. Any mental illness he suffered while not being halter broke for 6yrs, he definitely seems to be recovering quickly from it. He is a new horse since his freedom to explore has been restored. I definitely wear out faster than him too. I think if I had the time, I could play with him for hours. In the last week, I have established a “training” pattern with him, that we take a good 2-5 min grass break between our 3-10 min ‘training” sessions. He learned quickly, that the more effort he puts into learning something, the quicker he gets to eat some grass! He is by far not stupid, and my front yard is starting to look so nice, since he is eating all the weeds and grass that the others won’t touch.
