"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

All 4 feet in the trailer!

Well it was brief, but on day three of playing with the trailer, Cha’cote got all 4 feet in.

So tues night he literally walked right up and right in. No hesitation, but front feet only. And that was ok. I scratched his favorite spots and loved on him, and asked if he would like to come closer.

Wed night, he touched the bumper with his back cannons, so with a lot of patience, no push, he stepped up with his back feet. It honestly felt like it was his idea. Before I could snap a picture, he stepped back out again. And that was ok. I should have quit, but I didn’t. Quite mad at myself for missing that one, but it had only been a couple minutes, yada yada yada, all the reasons we all go direct line thinkin!

Any ways, the minute he was back in the trailer with all 4 feet, something spooked him and he turned around and ran out! He didn’t go far, and was more than willing to immediately put his front feet back in the trailer, but not his back feet. AND that’s OK.

Last night, all 4 feet, confident and stayed in and just hung out with me for quite a while. I got pics, but couldn’t get his feet and his head in the same shot. Will add pics tonight. After that we played on line and he is getting better at cantering, we are getting a whole half circle now, but still have leaps and strikes in it. He mostly trots anywhere he wants to go, rarely canters. I can’t wait to take him to the arena where he can let ‘er rip! I bet he is dying for a full on gallop.

Savvy On
