This is the place where I record my current learning experiences with horses. I’m personally aiming to become an excellent horsewoman, but the nature of horses is that they are truly catalysts for personal development. So, while half of my musings will be from a point of observation and communication with horses, this only reflects the way that I am personally developing. Because of this, it is my hope that you can relate to my blog on whatever level you wish. If you are a fellow horseman-in-training: good to meet you, it's wonderful to be on the same journey! But at the same time, if you are a complete stranger to me or to horses, you are just as welcome. Hopefully this blog will bring you some amusement; even if it is just laughing at how mad we horse people can be!

In this blog, you can find pages about my life so far, mentors, and of course, horses and my adventures with them.

"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory..."

My Parellising =D

Well.. one of the exciting things about being home was finally being able to touch my blue string! For those of that aren't familiar with the Parelli program, the levels system is similar to that of the martial arts grading. I completed Level 2 in March, and my blue string arrived while I was in Tanzania. My brother has been guarding my string jealously from my sisters and mum, all of which have now got their red strings (level 1) and can't wait to have their own blue strings!

I'm off to see my precious horse tomorrow. I loaned Blaine out while I was in Tanzania, and we'll be continuing that loan while I'm in America. We're taking our video camera along, as I'm hoping to film the final bits and bobs for the Online aspect of my Level 3 assessment. 

My flight to Colorado is now booked, weyheyy its so exciting!!! I'll be flying at the end of the month, which gives me enough time to celebrate my 18th birthday, spend time with my cousin visiting from South Africa, and spend my final week spectating at a Parelli clinic run by Silke Valentin! I think that all these things will leave me amped up and full of gusto for the Parelli office.
