"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.

Time to my self

Well, it does not happen very often....kinda like needing wild horses to drag me to it......but i am taking a day off of work tommorow.  Yup....trust me....i never miss work. never take vacations....someone literally must be sick or dying....and usually even if that someone is me....I still go to work.  I will have the house all to myself for nearly the whole day.  Hopefully it will stop raining long enough for me to spend a little time with my horses.  I just got 4 new dvd's from giddy up, so will have fun working on a few reviews.  Got some dennis reis, and another ray hunt benifit.  If nothing else, i will just enjoy the peace and quiet before my mom comes home from the hospital.  She has been there for nearly a month, had 3 surgeries, and we just dont know when she is coming home, or the level of intense care that she will need once here.  One way or another, we will figure out how to care for her until she is back on her feet, alive and WELL.  At the moment I feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders.  My work, my family, my mom and my neighbors who hate my horses.  Good news is that I am looking forward to applying for a teaching position at work.  Finally a job I was born to do, that doesn't involve a ton of paperwork.  Wish me luck!
