"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 trail Walk

Today my friends came over and we went on a LONG trail....ride for them, companion walk for me and Cha'cote. I know I wont be able to walk tommorow, but I had a blast and more importantly, so did he. The hills were managable for my fat rear, thank god. it was B..E..A..utiful! I know our bond got alot stronger today and can't wait to do it again. He even found himself a mustang day spa, and nearly knocked over a dead bush gettign a good scratch in.....well you'll see it in the video. I love him so much and know that he came to me right when we could help each other the most. I thought I was saving him, but really he is saving me.
Hope you enjoy.

Savvy On


  1. Dammit Michelle! Your post brought tears to my eyes. How wonderful for C to finally get to see the beautiful countryside. I can't help but shed a tear for his awful past and his wonderful future with you.
    You live in a gorgeous place. Puts our old English woods to shame!
    It's funny, I said the same thing about Breeze today... she really is saving me too. Just like C is you.
    Thanks for sharing the lovely video xxx

  2. XOXOXO Thanks Cilla. It is lovely here in the spring, but come summer it is all dry and brown and full of rattle snakes....eeek! I would much rather come and see the english and irish country side. I have no idea what kind of trail we were on. Maybe a firetruck trail, we get terrible wild fires here in the summer. One time i could see the fires at my friends house 8 miles away. the fire made it half way to my house. scary some times.

    The video brings tears to my eyes too.


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