"Look back at our struggle for freedom,

Trace our present day's strength to it's source;

And you'll find that man's pathway to glory

Is strewn with the bones of the horse."

Hope you like the pictures :-)
Well I suppose I should be ashamed of myself for not updating in forever. However, in my defense, I have been out of my mind busy. There is so much going on this year, and so much to prepare for. But I shall give an update on the horses:

Blaze: Blaze and I have been focusing on liberty/freestyle, Though I've been taking it easy since it has been 90s + degrees everyday. He's doing very well, he's very relaxed with his head down most of the time. I do have some newer videos, but I'll post them at the end!

Angel: Angel and I have been doing allot of riding, Her spins are getting faster and faster, and she'll now spin bridle-less. I've taught her to bow and kiss, she is very close to laying down. Also he bridle-less riding is spectacular.

Layla: Layla has surpassed all my expectations, Her liberty is L3 easy. She's come along way, here is our task list she can do so far: (all online and liberty.) 7 games, 7 games at liberty, stick to me Walk, trot, canter, Stand on pedestal, Jump barrels, Spanish walk, bow, side-pass to me, simple lead change, bare-back pad.
I'm very proud of her!

Caspian: Caspian has done so well, we have the canter online and under saddle on both leads (It was very difficult for him to canter on the left lead) Also his liberty has come along very nicely.

Joie: Joie's riding is coming along great! Though, I'm still building her muscle, so I'm taking it easy.

Amour: This silly girl is great! her bridle-less has come along nicely! and her liberty is better then ever!

Now for some videos:

Body awareness.

Body awareness.

I've been noticing lately, when I walk up to one of my horses that are more Right Brain, I see their head turn away. I've always thought "Their just not in the mood to play." But is this always the case? Tonight I answered that question. I started walking up to Spirit, and stoped, and called his name. Spirit started leaving, I thought to myself "Why did he leave? and how can I get him to come back?"

I've noticed when around horses, I tend to have a "high" energy in my core- or a more "driving" type of energy, it's almost uncontrollable.. If you put an extroverted horse in a round pen with me, they get so playful and energetic. They sense my energy----Even tho lowering my energy is very difficult, I tried to lower my energy as much as I could.so as my energy lowered, Spirit turned around, and walked right up to me. Along with the rest of the herd.

So this leads to another thing:
Blaze, always has a high energy under saddle, I always thought it was my tack (Which certainly doesn't help)...But could the actual problem be my very high energy?...Indeed it could! I think next time I ride Blaze, I'm really going to focus on my energy being lower, and see how Blaze reacts to this.

Well this concludes my blog post, I admit I have been terrible keeping up with things lately. Hopefully I can keep everyone posted more often!

Busy, busy me. I've clearly been lacking for the past few months. I apologize for being such a slacker. But I'm here with you for an update!

Layla has shown me just how talented she truly is. Everything I've been teaching her has been at liberty, I've found that teaching things at liberty maybe more difficult. But I've learned to respect the horse in a whole new level, to give them the choice of being with you is truly the best way.

here is her update video: (PS. It also has Blaze and Angel in it).

everyone is doing great! I will have more updates probably tomorrow, I plan on making another video.

Bye for now!

Introducing Prince Caspian

Hi all!

I would like to introduce you to my mother's horse, Prince Caspian. He is a 7 year old Appy/saddle bred mixture. He is a innately RBI, but has learned LBI behavior. He is such a talented horse! he will hopefully in the future be a hunter jumper. I've watched him jump a 4 foot fence like it was 1 feet.

So far is is level 2/3ish. We've owned him for a month and I've just been meaning to write this blog and finally got around to it.

He is awesome at liberty, and online and is already jumping a little under saddle. Here are some pictures:

He is such a special horse to me. He is so much like Blaze.
