"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.

ChaCote's first trailer load

Here is the video....this is the first time where Cha'Cote CHOSE to go in a trailer, instead of being run thru a chute and shoved in, terrified for his life. Even though it was only 2-3 times, I know it left a memory he never forgot. and I just love how he got in. Once he gave it his stamp of approval, he was good to go.....now for the back feet....but in good time.

I am in no rush.....totally on his timetable.

Savvy On

  2. It's been a long morning for me, in a 3hr deposition regarding the car accident, so I am emotionally drained.....but OMG....thank you, you just made me cry like a baby! I couldn't be more proud of this boy....I think, down the road he will be my masteriece!

  3. Great job! Those mustangs are so in tune, aren't they? Very true in everything.

  4. Thank you so much. 2 mos ago when we tried the trailer, really his only answer to my request was no. So when he said yes this time, I knew I just needed to support him while he struggled to get in.
    thanks again


I know I am not perfect.....so be nice!
