About Me

You've found the Mary-Dixon page about horsemanship.  Horses are my passion and my obsession.  They have helped me become a kinder, more confident, more patient person.  What they have taught me about them and taught me about myself is immeasureable.  I now try to teach folks about the nature of horses and how to understand each other which leads to a more confident human and a more confident little darling.

#62 Little Darlings Going Solo


#62   Little Darlings Going Solo

I just put together a video - on helping your darling and you get to where you can ride alone.

Going solo does not have to be done in one session or in a day.

Just, when you have had enough, or your time is short,or whatever, END ON A GOOD NOTE where he is at least as far as he has gone before or a tad farther.  Let him rest there a few seconds.

At that point, you can ALWAYS call it quits til the next time.

And the next time, to get him to where he had left off previously, will take a bit less time.

Just keep working it - in no time, really and truly, you'll both be successful, safe and happy.

  You are really going to love riding alone.

This is just so worth it.
