Back to the beginning
When this post gets published, I will probably be packing Moxie's things up, putting her in the trailer, and taking her back to meet her owner. It has been the craziest of years with this wonderful horse, and I've learned  so  much with her. I've struggled ...

Not allowed to change
On the first day of the Mary Wanless Workshop, there were three groups of three riders - I rode in the first group and had no idea what to expect. Leading up to this workshop, I had a fair amount of anxiety. I learned that I was going to be a demonstration ...

Cause and Effect
Megan and I attended a Mary Wanless Workshop this weekend, and I was invited to be a demo rider with Moxie. It was an UNBELIEVABLE weekend and I'm not sure I'll ever be the same. I met trainers who have balanced horses and real life in a way that was super ...

An Antifragile Connection
Fragile objects are harmed by chaos. Example: a glass breaks when dropped on the ground. Or, a sensitive horse loses his mind when his threshold is crossed. Robust objects are not impacted by chaos. Example: a nalgene water bottle does not change when dropp...

Loss of momentum
I haven't posted on Instagram in nearly a year - some of my students consider this egregious. It's been almost six months since I posted here. I don't know about you, but I know that there's a bit of momentum that has to be built up, that once you're rollin...

A Brutal Pursuit
The journey towards doing anything well is hard. There are a great many quaint anecdotes that try to translate this journey for the lay-person, but I don't think I need to translate them for you. You're a horse-person too. You participate in one of the only...

The Addition of Moxie
Serendipity is a pretty beautiful thing sometimes. The day Kat pulled up lame again I saw an ad for a mare, schooling 2nd/3rd, a care lease situation in order for the owner to be a bit picky. I sent her a message to start a conversation, more to soothe my s...

What Should Be Practiced?
Excerpted from "Why Don't Students Like School?" Not everything can be practiced extensively, but fortunately not everything needs to be practiced.... If practice makes mental processes automatic, we can then ask, which processes need to become automatic?  ...

BINGO: None of the following is true
(Except for the parts which are, but I’m not telling which ones have actually happened to me. [Except for when I provide photographic or video evidence.])  I held my hand against my forehead, elbow on the table, trying to breathe through my anxiety. What ha...

An interlude with a diabolic bike
I would like to request that you listen to the song below while reading this post.  I'm not a particularly adventurous person, I'm coming to discover. For example, I recently helped a client see that her horse would be just fine on trails. I rode the horse ...
