"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,

**** 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.

Cha'Cote, trailer loading video

This is Cha'Cote's first time loading with ME on the outside of the trailer too! He does not do well with approach and retreat in the traditional natural way. He does better if you help him through it, than backing him away. He mistakes the "retreat" as part of the lesson and we end up farther and farther away from the trailer. He's an odd little duck, but it works for him! Also to note, I noticed he was having a harder time getting his back feet in, as he was not confident at all about backing them OUT.  I decided it was time to turn him around IN the trailer, but still be safe at the same time.  I noticed a big difference today letting him get out that way.  He was more comfortable going IN, because he was more comfortable going OUT.  This is as close as we came to OLL3 audition today!
