"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.

Battle of the cones! AGAIN

Well, I had decided to practice my online L3 audtition. WRONG! Rose was an LBE Princess and true to the comments rec'd on my Liberty audition, she doesn't believe i will go to phase4. She doesn't think I am good enough to make her. And she is right. This session is a tragedy! Pre car accident.....phase one, 85-90% of the time.....post accident, it is a total crap/shoot. So when this session went bad....I decided to be particular about obtaining and keeping ownership of the cones and rope, ie; keep her feet off of them, and not let her choose if she was or was not going to go around them. at the end I let her "kill the cone" but that time it was MY idea. I about passed out from the heat, I just don't have it in me to run that long, and I shoulda quit one pass sooner than I did, as I am sure she thinks she ended the weave session, not me. Again, this looks bad and I hate it. Trying to follow the advice of PP and not let her get away with murder. No chump smell, though I don't think it is very harmonious. take a gander, some decent stuff peppered in there. but nothing to brag about for sure!
