"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!

What is Horsemanship

I have been struggling with this question for a while now.  I know how it feels, and what to DO, so to speak....but how do you put it into a few words.  Watching an interview with Pat Parelli on the Rick Lamb show, Pat give his definition of it.....so I want to quote him here as it is perfectly explained.

"Horsemanship is the skills and habits both humans and horses need to become partners"

"Natural horsemanship is the natural phenomenon that a horse and a human can be absolute partners"

This said in the context that horsemanship is the foundation, and things like dressage are the training that is the icing.

I very much enjoyed the interview, probably my favorite Pat has ever done.  To see for yourself, click links below.
