About Me

I can be described as lover of life, an animal lover, and lover of education. I am constantly striving for knowledge and learning opportunities. I've been around horses my entire life. I enjoy working with horses and their human partners through natural horsemanship philosophies, natural balance bare foot hoof care, reiki, red-light therapy, essential oils, aromatherapy, crystal healing, chromotherapy, flower essences, and more. I am a Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki Master Teacher who offers treatments for people, horses, dogs, cats, and other creatures great and small. I also teach Reiki classes for those interested in learning how to treat themselves, their loved ones, and even their animals! Natural Horse Lover Farm is located in Northern New York between the St. Lawrence River and Adirondack Mountains. Heaven on Earth. naturalhorseloverfarm.com

Put yourself on video!

I taped my freestyle L2 yesterday but it was a bit too long (not able to edit it back on both ends as some tasks won't be on the final version) and could have some improvements, very interesting to watch. What I clearly could see is that we made progress throughout the session and it was interesting to see the change and all the licking Whiskey was doing (you cannot see that from the saddle).

I would highly recommend anyone to videotape themselves, even if just for yourself and not for official assessment. Watch it with an objective eye, you will learn a great deal about you and your horse and your relationship. You will better understand what is going on. What can I say, how interesting!

I am going to try to tape again today if the weather permits. We are heading out to the barn in the next few minutes.

hehehe I have a Flip and i set it up on the arena rail with my Gorillapod, then marked off an area with cones so I would know where to play to be on camera. Played for about half an hour. We were *brilliant* together. smooth, tuned in, true partners. We went over to check the camera together, a nice close up of Rocky's nose ... but I had forgotten to press Record.
