"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.

  1. Hi Michelle, I hope you & your Mom are doing well.
    I came across a post by Buck Branaman's brother, Smokie, that I thought you would enjoy, seeing as he saw fit to leave a forum recently. His words are spot on. Best Wishes! Colleen P.S. I've recently read Buck's books Believe & Faraway Horses. I loved them!

  2. Colleen, thanks for the link. I loved it. LOVED it. I am sooo over DRAMA on a forum. I stopped going to that forum for the same reason Smokie bailed. Stupid drama. I will no longer tolerate someone bashing ME for questioning a method, technique, or trainer.

    As for my mom, she had yet another surgery yesterday. 3rd in just over 2 weeks. I feel so bad for her. Hopefully this surg does the trick.

  3. Hi Michelle, Oh I hope this surgery is the ticket! Sure hope she is feeling better fast. For herslef, of course, & to ease your mind & make life a little easier for you. It is BIG taking care of others. Can take alot out of a person. Sure wishing you & your family All the BEST!
    I knew you would enjoy that post. Thank you for telling me. I was browsing that forum when you left. I recently canceled my PNH membership, not for any particular reason. It was just time for me to move on & $20 a month can be better spent for my family. Lots of bashing going on there to another person leaving at the same time. Feels strange not to be able to log on anymore, but I'll adjust. :)
    Warmest Regards,

  4. Here is a great site. I haven't visited it in quite awhile & the site's owner Cynthia Cooper has updated it. Wonderful information there!

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