"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

** 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.

Hold on to your knickers, my kid is gonna RIDE!

Well, of course I am not holding my breath on this, but Jason has decided that he wants to complete ALL of level 2 including riding. He has no desire to try and ride Spirit, of which I doubt I would let him attempt it anyways. Spirit just isn’t a riding pony. And certainly not a good choice for a new rider to get his feet wet with. So of course there is better choice than good ole Snookie. No guarantee’s with her either, but she is a pretty safe bet as long is Rose is nearby. She is old, and tired, and as long as she is not pushed into an RBE panic by Rose going walk about without her, she should be perfectly lazy and forgiving for Jason to learn on. So I am debating bareback or a saddle. I do not have a saddle Jason’s size, but she has such a high wither for bareback. Hmmmmm descisions, descisions. Likely it will be bareback, and since it will be walking only for a while, I think we will be ok. I plan to have him start tomorrow, after letting every one out to graze for a while, as it has been raining for 3 days. For goodness sakes……it is almost JUNE……..and it is STILL raining!

Cha’cote has learned a domestic trick of destroying a fence to get the grass on the other side. We are going to have to take action tonight before he pushes the whole thing down. I planned on having him in the back with the others by now, but have been waiting for it to stop raining for good. Maybe July? At least that is how it feels. My only worry is that he will bond to the herd, or get hurt. Descisions, Descisions!

I have a fun day planned with my friend this weekend to take the wonder twins to the local arena for a fun play day. Maybe even get my FSL3 or OLL3 taped. But not holding my breath. The girls have been depressed in the rain, and who knows how they will react at a new place having not gone anywhere in 9mos. Wish me luck and fun. And may all of you enjoy your extended weekend with your furry friends!

Savvy On
