"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.

Parelli Connect is officially LAUNCHED!!!!!!

You can look for me there! Michelle Howard is thy name.

In case you aren't familiar with it, it is a social networking site like facebook, but for horses!!!  You can add personal pages for each of your horses, and also track your progress for each of your horses.  They have an online check list of tasks to do in each of the 4 savvies~Online, Liberty, Freestyle, and Finesse, and the task for each savvy is specific to the level of your study with each horse.  Pretty cool.  But what is really cool, is that they have made the level 1 video training series available to view online for free!  Not bad, considering you can become a member for a mere $10 a month and have access to thier million dollar video vault online.  It is a great value and a great resource and a great way to get support and meet new friends.

Savvy On
