"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!

DVD Review:**** Ray Hunt ~ Appreciation Clinic 2005

Ray Hunt Appreciation Clinic Circa 2005 ****

This I loved compared to the other colt start clinic with 40 horses and 40 riders, doing a weekend warrior colt start.  That one still gives me chills.  This one was with his grand kids.  The colt start part of it anyways.  Every thing was calm and it was nice to see the colts given a good start.  So if you are at all interested in colt starting, this is the one to watch.  If not, there is still some really great horsemanship during the colt start part of it. 

Now for the other part....the clinic.  This was basically just like the other one.  Lots of people riding around, working on getting soft.  There was a woman on a paint, who needed some additional help.  It was hard to tell, but it appeared she was not able to grasp anything due to nerves.  So one of Ray's grankids got on him and made alot of changes for the better in this, getting out of control and quickly becoming dangerous horse.  So there is alot to be learned during that part too.

But as far as Ray giving a whole lot of instruction, I am guessing it just wasn't his style.  So don't expect any tidbits of learning to be handed to you on a silver platter....but they are there to be learned.  And be prepared, between the two disks in this set.....there is like 8hs of viewing.
