"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.

My oh My…stubborn kid!

All I can say is Jason is just like ME! He is VERY serious about doing this by himself. All I have to do is set up the task….put a marker where he needs to stand….then tell him the task, and stay out of his way. Sure the tasks are all the same right now….but…I am trying to get him to get himself a little farther down the rope away from Spirit. But it is just easier to put a cone out and tell him to stay behind it than to explain why or how. He just argues with me. He did so good this weekend. Porcupine is getting better, he is more fluid with his carrot stick and rope handling, backing up is getting better. Man that pony sure has the gas pedal stuck down in 1st gear. He is oddly light doing it yo-yo style, but in the leading from zone2 facing same direction, he just doesn’t want to do it for Jason. He does it for me, but there are times when he tests Jason’s leadership and knowledge for sure. Jason is done with his OLL1 patterns and only has a couple of self assessment tasks to go before I will let him tape his audition. We could tape it now, but for the sake of being proper and thorough, he will do each task until he has done it 7 times or more if needed. Anyways, he is working hard on his OLL1, and for the most part, Spirit is on board!

Savvy On
