"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.

Power of Neutral video

Well long story will get to later, but here is my "extra" video for my OLL3 showing my neutral. I hadn't played with him for 5 weeks, pulled him out, no warm up, NOTHING, just straight to this. he was too upset to canter, but the point is my neutral in the circle game anyways. the rest was really to make sure i got my draw back. I was upset that he didn't come to me the first time and was not going to leave it at that. when done we did a liberty walk in zone 5 about 30feet then onto the pedestal from zone 5. of course the camera wasn't on!


  1. Cool! He was quite far from the camera, so I couldn't see all your signals... but the overall picture is pretty nice!

    I've started following you on my personal blog, by the way.

Parelli Central

  2. Thanks Kerrin, I am now following you too! I would love to work at Parelli Central. That must be fun for sure. BUT, I could do without the snow!

    It is usually much better than this, but since I tried to get "fancy" in my audition, I missed the neutral all together. I figured if Pat was gonna waste his time watching my audition, I better not "waste" his time, so I rushed home, stripped and ran out there and put my needs before his for sure. I kissed and made up with him though. I figure for the last 7 months every second was about his needs, he could give me a couple of minutes of his time for mine.

    I am proud of him for sure.


I know I am not perfect.....so be nice!
