"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,

*** Worth watching, but you won't die without it

* 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.

DVD Review:***** Cynthia Royal Live 2day Malibu Clinic

Cynthia Royal: Clinic Live #1 *****
Want to excel at Liberty??  You will love this.

I really like Cynthia's way of describing things.  Her basic philosphy is the same as Resnicks WHR's.  So if you liked that, this will be more of the same with a slightly different twist.  They go together well, and since i have yet to hear of anyone else that does the WHR type training, these two 'resnick/royal' will give you what you need to play with thes rituals.  This type of training is about creating that bond with your horse that makes everything else possible.  Becoming the "dominant" horse thru the 7 games will only get you so far....it is these bonding rituals that makes you the LEADER.  Otherwise you and your horse will just be arguing over the #2 spot.

This dvd is smart and the rituals well ordered and explained.

The first dvd is not alot, if any, of the HOW....but the WHY is what you need first anyways, and this is gonna tell ya WHY you should do it, and HOW it works....the other dvd's are for the "how to".  This is an excellent introduction to this type of training, and I can certainly say that if you cant get your hands on the WHR, get this and you will be just fine.
So what is the #1 need of a horse....A leader/herd.

The herd/leader gives them all thier needs....food, water, safety, grooming, play, and companionship.

You will learn plenty in this dvd about herd behavior, herd needs and herd culture....and most importantly how you too can join in and have an even better relationship with your horse, being the leader not just the dominant horse!

Iam still waiting for the second dvd in this series to be available when I am 'ready' for my next dvd to be shipped, so I will review the second one....when ever ya'all send it back to giddy-up!

Run, don't walk to your nearest dvd shop to pick this up.....5*s as you just gotta see and hear this if you want to truley be the best for your horse.

I just discovered the coolest thing.....for a mere $9....yes...just $9.....you can download this dvd set to your computer.  If that is not the coolest thing....I dont know what is.  However, there is a glitch and they are not offering it till probably march of 2011, check back at her site until it is offered.  Click here to download from Cynthia's site.
