"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."

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!
