"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 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.

Cha'cote's first friend and gallop

Hey Ho! I am soooo happy! Finally took Cha'Cote on his very first outing. Here is the video of his very first gallop in 6ys, and his first friend Mick. We picked Mick because we knew he would be gentle, but we also knew he would not let up and make Cha'cote play and run. Mick is my firends 3yo paint gelding. Enjoy!


  1. I watched this Michelle and it made me cry, its a really lovely video. plus the other ones are totally awesome too. Glad to see you two working so beautifully together.

    Much love

  2. Lovely Video! Loved it! How to you pronounce Cha'Cote? I was thinking CHA-coat-eh. Am I right?

  3. XOXOXO Sammi....stupidly I have a desire to lay on him......eeeeek! course even if I could be brave enough, thank god I am not stupid enough. I am finally able to start doing things and not be in pain for a month, the last thing I need is to go back THERE! I cried too! So happy for him!

    Thanks Priscilla, yes that is how you pronounce it. i would say it ch-coh-DEE...but what ever....now that i have said it to myself about 50 times to see how 'I" do say it.....he don't care...just bring food and open the gate and your golden! ;)
