"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.

DVD Review: ***** Cynthia Royal "live clinic" #2

Live Malibu Clinic disc 2 *****

Holy smokes Batman....'shazam'.....this disk was finally available when I turned some in at giddy-up.  this two set dvd is not to be missed.  Disk 1 really explains the "whys", it is continued on this disk....but this disk has alot of the 'hows'.  She has one horse that she lets 6 auditors come in and do 'walking in sync' or  in WHR....'companion walking'. Anyways, it was really cool to see how different the horse reacted to each participant, the youngest a girl of about 5ys old. But then she pulls out all the stops and brings in, not together, 6 horses, all new to her and her method and I was blown away.  Blown away.  What she does with so little, and the difference she made in each of the horses by just 'being' with them.  I am not kidding.....I called a tow truck to get my jaw off the floor.  The reason this, both she and resnick are so friggin fantastic is that they show you HOW.  If you want to see the difference you can make in a horse before you ever put a halter on....get this dvd set.  you wont regret it.  Take your Liberty play to a whole new level....and even better, your relationship with your horse.  It was 3hs long full of info not to be missed.  I gotta watch it again so I can take notes.  It is one thing to show you a method with horses that already know it, but to show footage of what we all want to see....ya know....how do you REALLY get the horse like that......that's what we all want to see.....the finished product is inpirational, and even somewhat educational, but we all know when you start a totally new program, you want to see what it actually might be like on day one.  Well here it is.  Run, dont walk to her website or giddy-up to get this dvd set.  I know I have paid a hell of alot more in the past.....for a hell of alot less......wish I would have had this 10ys ago.....NO......30ys ago!

Make sure to follow this dvd set up with  her "how" of the rituals 'horsetalk relationship'

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.

I can't wait for the sun to stay up just a bit later, and the weather to clear up......man I am gonna tear these rituals UP!  Look out video camera.....you gonna get used and abused!

Savvy On
