American Cowgirl Movie trailer

One of the natural horsemanship listserves sent this link – it’s pretty cool.  LMK if anybody orders the movie — maybe we can have a screening at Avalon one night. 😉

Self defense for trail riders

Someone just showed me this, and it’s worth sharing.

It shows a few good tips for protecting yourself (and your horse) from human predators if you ride alone.

Seven pit pups need homes…

My friend Jodi runs the only pit bull rescue in Tennessee, located in Cookeville.  This past week, she was instrumental in saving seven “blue” pit pups that were dumped on the side of a road.  She has moved the pups into a temporary foster situation, but of course they will all need long-term fosters and/or permanent homes. 

I’m going to try to upload a pic of their little “jail-bird” selves, from the shelter, before Jodi got them.  Only six of them show at the gate.


“Blue” is that lovely steel grey color that dogs, cats and horses come in.  It’s just beautiful, but if blue doesn’t do it for you, adopt a dog in a different color.  They all need love and comfort. 

If you know of anyone who is interested in helping with homes, paying the vet bills, or supplying funds for food, please contact me at

Horse clinic

Begin forwarded message from Dale Rudin:

I want to let you know that there are a few spots left for my “Performance Through Partnership” Clinic – Leadership and Connection March 7th through 9th at Timber Ridge Campground in Jamestown, TN.


This is the perfect clinic for you if you’re looking to improve your relationship with your horse.  You’ll also increase your understanding of the equine mind and learn valuable techniques that will help you overcome behavior and training problems.  

If you don’t have a horse to bring this time, you are more than welcome to participate as a spectator.


For more information about what will be covered in the clinic, here’s a

link to the clinics page on my website:


This clinic is being hosted by Timber Ridge Campground.  You can go to their

site for details and to sign up.  I’ve been to their facility and it’s really great.  You and your horse will have a great time there.


Let me know if you have any questions, and I hope to see you there!

Westfall link works now…

The server was down for several days because they got something like 40,000 hits in 24 hours.  🙂   I just used the link, and it works fine.
