"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 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.

I am a blubbering FOOL

I am a blubbering fool right now. Snookie and I used to once be one. While I rode her, we did wondrous things so in synch, that no one else could see the cues. We were so in tune with one another, that I couldn’t tell where I ended and she began. She could read my cues by what felt like just a thought. Her legs felt like my legs. I felt like I was IN her body. I suppose I am lucky. Her career ended when she got laminitis so bad that her coffin bones almost penetrated her soles. It was a year before we knew she was truly out of the woods and would not have to be put down. That was 9yrs ago. I got an extra 9 years of her love. She has been barefoot for 6 yrs, and I have been her only hoof trimmer for the last 5yrs. She is old, but otherwise healthy. She has been my best friend and teacher for 22yrs now. I know her better than I think I will ever know any another horse. My best friend said to me that maybe it is time to let Snookie pass the torch to Rose. I think she is right. Not that I won’t give it a go. Expect nothing and accept what ever I get.I just feel like I bought a lottery ticket with my favorite lucky numbers. Held on to it so long I forgot I had it. Came across it in the pocket of my favorite old jeans…checked the numbers to discover that not only did I win the big jackpot, but also that the ticket expired!
