"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.

RIP My Friend Snookie ~ Video

Snookies last day is this friday 7-15-11. We have shared an amazing 23yr Journey. Please wish her well on her voyage over the rainbow bridge.

I want to thank Matt, Barb, Doc and Maryanne at West 12 Ranch for breeding me the most perfect horse, for if she had been a good race horse......she would never have been mine.
I am still working on this video, still needs a tweak here and there, but this is good enough for now. It is long....sorry, hard to cram 23ys into a short video. My best friend took us to the river sunday and took some really nice pics. Thank you Kandi.

Savvy On Snookie
May your fields never again be fenced.
I love you!


  1. I nearly didn't watch the vid....glad I did tho. A wonderful way to celebrate her life.
    I don't really know what to say, it's all so painful and sad. But that's life isn't it? The circle, the beginning and the end, you can't have one without the other. Nothing lasts forever.
    I just wish you peace and although life is hard and we have to make very difficult decisions, it's beautiful all the same.
    I will be thinking of you x

  2. Cindy's thoughts & memories;
    Although I do not agree I respect what you need to do for whatever you believe is right. It is a very difficult thing for me to understand and I don't believe I would have the strength. So my heart aches for you in saying goodbye to a very dear friend that will always be in your heart, even though she leaves this earth. My children think of her with great fondness and remember all the time they have spent with her.

    Looking back I remember the day that I was riding her and she got spooked, I grabbed onto to her neck for dear life and screamed your name to save me, for snookie and I were headed straight for the fence and all I could see is me flying over that fence if she did not stop, lol. Watching the video reminds me of the time when Mike was like 3 1/2 yrs and Ashleigh was 2 yrs old riding her and within minutes they were both dumped and Ash wanted to get right back on, haha. Remember that?? I hope you are at peace with this, love you.

  3. We all miss her all ready, but she is in heaven now with her old friends. Thanks for sharing in this part of the journey with me.


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