"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!

We're Back...I'm BACK!

Well I finally had the gumption to play with Rose. My fears are almost gone. It was amazing...SHE was amazing. The play time before I broke out the camera was way better, but this should suffice. As I have stated before. Since I started to play with my horses a year after my car accident, and our timing was so off, I have been afraid to play with Rose. Not afraid of her...but afraid of not living up to how good we were. So the fear got the better of me. And I went catatonic. Playing with Miyagi and ChaCote has helped emensly. "I" am now of sound mind and body, and "I" am in tune with myself. Odly, the weave was one of the first things I tried to play with her last year, and having never done it at the trot, I couldn't get her to. My shoulders still hurt bad and I was too weak to play with the 22' line. I got frustrated and lost my emotional control. Today, we only did it at a walk once and then the trot, and we did it great, first time. She is so smart, being an extreme LBE, if I do it right, she will be easy to get her to do it, but if I don't....oh boy...she is too smart for that and will recognise even the sightest weakness in me and take advantage of it. But now that I have myself together, L3 online is just around the corner. I started playing with driving lines last year and while it was OK, I just didn't have the desire to continue. Well NO more! I hope, weather permiting, to tape my OLL3 by the end of march. And then the weather should be good enough to get OLL4 started. So here is our lame little video of today.
