"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,

I will be giving Savvy Star Ratings based soley on my opinion of it's value to a parelli student as such

***** 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.

As if it couldn't......my weekend got even better!

So I thought I would play with Rose and do a dry run of our online L3 audition, so I can look at it and see where I need to improve. Well let's just say....sometimes you need to get while the gettins good 

I must have been direct line as all heck, cuz she went LBI big time. Some things were awesome....like playing with 45'line , zone 5 driving, and trailer loading from zone 5 and from me on bottom of hill, her and trailer on top of hill, all while Snookie was screaming and running around thinking we were leaving without her. Everything else was no where as good as the day before, and somewhere in there I think I got the middle hoof from a very indignant LBE! And justly deserved it

I was frustrated and gave up. BUT....

I didn't want to lose yesterdays high, so I got Cha'cote, whom I havn't played with for the last month....just undemanding time.

I decided while I had the trailer door tied open, I would give it a go and prayed for the best (out of me)

Would you believe..........

I was so good....I went from frustrated to patient instantly
Why couldn't I have done it with Rose????
He got in the trailer with his front feet  OMG! He really didn't put up much of a fuss either. Not like he went straight in or anything, but he only said no a handful of times. the rest of the time he WAS trying. even if he only bumped it with his shin. (he taught me.....a while back....it is no accident if any part of him touches any thing. he is aware of everything and would never accidentally touch something he didn't want to) In the end he got in 5 times!

I am so proud of him, and am uploading video right now!

I cant wait to take him somewhere and show him off. he is soo pretty. and doing soooo goooooooood!
