Writing from my heart... VERY IMPORTANT! You'll want to read this post... Plus a Tag!

Ok so I told my little cuz that I would post what I wanted to do in life and about this new program I am starting.

Ok I'll start with the link and why I am doing this new program... The link is
I'll still do parelli but will do this one too because I believe you should use *many* different trainers and clinicians. I've also noticed Parelli is pretty repetitive and Sonny and I get bored *AMAZINGLY* fast! This new program also has some things that I want to learn to do and I am getting into dressage and I want to achieve it Naturally and *without* a bit :) . They also are not as arrogant as Parelli! Have y'all noticed how most clinicians are *very*, and I mean *VERY*, arrogant? I also don't like how they are treated like gods... But I like their approaches sooooooo..... Yah.

When I grow up I would like to take in 3 strike mustangs, rescue horses, and *unwanted* teenagers (key word, unwanted!). I've wanted to do this since I was 10 years old! I'd pair up a teen with a compatible horse and let them battle it out ;)! lol! The reason so many teens are doing what they are doing is because they don't have the love they need at home so they look for it elsewhere. The orphaned teens also *know* they are unwanted! It's so sad... I can't wait till I'm 18 so I can start doing what I want to with my life! Right now I'm just trying to get all the knowledge I can so that then I can teach them. I plan on having a lot of acreage in the middle of nowhere and maybe homeschool them? That way they would be around the Word of God and wouldn't be able to run away as easily ;-)! lol! I might make my Walk Of Faith Blog tell about my walk to where I want to be in life... hmmmm... Okay I'm back on subject. I really think God is calling me to do this because I have a HUGE desire to do this! It all started when I read the book The Cross and the Switchblade. You HAVE to read this book! It is my FAVORITE BOOK EVER!!! What do YOU want to do with your life?

I'm going to make a tag! Here it is~

What do YOU want to do with your life?
Make a post telling your readers what you are going to do to change the world, why you are doing it, and how are you going to do it. God has a purpose for EVERYONE be it to be a parent, a missionary, or to just show your faith on your sleeve!?! I the maker of this tag feel God is calling me at 13 years of age to help my fellow teens! When I grow up I want to take in unwanted teenagers and rescue horses/3 strike mustangs. God has placed a desire in my heart and I feel led to do this. The big thing is not one person has told me this isn't possible because with God EVERYTHING is possible! Right now I am working on wearing my faith on my sleeve and showing the world that 1 person CAN make a difference! Even a 13 year old named Lauren Mitchell! Lets show the world how serious we are and that being a Christian is AMAZING! Here is the link to the blog~

My Flash Of the Obvious...

...was AMAZING! I have SO misread Red! I've been thinking he was a LBI/LBE lately because he started being lazy and most of the RBI characteristics went away... Boy was I wrong! He's LBI until he is pushed past a threshold and I haven't been tuning in really well to what he is telling me until a couple of days ago. I was working on his online work and I noticed that every time I would ask for him to do a full circle around me he'd tense up and take off. I contributed it to being LBE because he was taking off in the direction Rambo was in and he tends to get snotty when going away from Rambo. Then I decided to try something else so I worked on his stick-2-me attitude and he was great walking towards and away from Rambo!?! Well that when the FOB happened... I realized that he was going RBI because he would get tense then go "catatonic", which I thought was him being a lazy LBI, and if I kept the pressure on like I would if Sonny would go LBI he would take off!!! Well I then went and every time I noticed him getting tense I would take the pressure off and leave him alone till he licked and chewed. I probably had the BEST session I have ever had with him EVER!!! He came up to me after I ended the session and it was like he was saying "Thank-you for understanding me". He followed me around for a minute and then he went back to the grass and I headed inside. I can't wait until it stops raining so I can go and play with him!

Lesson fun!

As you can guess from the title I have been giving some lessons...  My cousin and her friend come once a week on Thursday for a lesson.  I put them on bareback usually 'cause I like to torture them...  lol!  JK!  I put them on bareback to strengthen their muscles and to teach them how to have balance because my saddle is a hunter jumper saddle so you are pushed WAY forward and so they can't get their balance point real well. They have been doing REALLY good I usually do around 45min-1hour of ground work with them and then 10-20 minutes of riding time because I want them comfortable on the ground first because then the confidence transfers into the saddle and they will then try new things and progress faster:).

Sonny and I are "unofficial" level 1 grads and level 2 online and freestyle grads:). We can do all the stuff on the checklist:).  If I want to do the savvy club I have to pay for it myself so I can't do the "official" auditions :(... Oh well... We are now starting our finesse and Sonny is doing MARVELOUSLY! It is sooo fun! Any tips? I'll *try* to make a movie if I can get my camera working again:P! Ever since I started Parelli everyone keeps commenting on Sonny and I's bond. I don't see anything spectacular but everyone else seems to???? But I just tell everyone that its because of Parelli;)! I think that I have reverted some ppl to it because Sonny pretty consistently draws at a trot and lets me ride him around bridleless and bareback so I show everyone that and their jaws drop! I crack up laughing! Its soooo easy get it, too, if you work on creating that bond, rapport, and respect first. I mean ANYTHING is possible if you have those 3 fundamentals down! Sonny is definitely my dream horse!

Red and I have been playing with our freestyle and I can now consistently get a trot!!!! YAY! Once my EXTREME LBI OFFERED IT!!!! Our online is getting better... I can get 1/2 lap of trot on the circling game when I get really insistent about it. Our sideways game is coming along slowly but not so surely ;P! lol! Red is sooo sweet and LOVES to cuddle! Red is definitely my challenge! He is the biggest challenge I've had yet :P! The reason is because we both have REALLY different person/horseanalities:)! Well I've gtg help make dinner 8D!

Bridleless riding...

Sonny is doing soooo good with his freestyle:)!  We can weave, do figure 8's, trot to walk to halt to back up transitions w/out using anything but my body language!!!!!!!  Our online is doing good but I need to learn when to stop.  He does really good until I either a) bring him away from his buddies  or b) ask for a figure 8.  I got a couple good figure 8's then stopped.  Our Liberty is doing good and he will now pretty consistently trot after me and I can sit under him w/out worrying about getting run over by him:)!  I am going to *try* to get a round pen set up but I have to earn up the money for the T-posts and electric tape myself:P!  lol!  I can't wait until I have one!!!!  We can't afford to do the corral panels because they are soooo expensive!  I would rather have a barn:P!  lol!
Red's been doing good too:).  I've been working on his confidence issues with the purple ball.  He's gotten a whole lot better:)!  I haven't ridden him in a while because he was growing but hopped on for a second yesterday and he did REALLY good for not being ridden in a while:)!  Well I've gtg!  ttyl!

A Good Poem...

When you run so fast to get somewhere
you miss half the fun of getting there
if you worry and hurry through your day
it's like an unopened gift
thrown away
Life is not a race
Do take is slower
hear the music
before the song is over."
