STARTING YOUR HORSE --& YOU --at the same time!
When teaching you and your horse to work together, what will you get? --A better horse! Why? It's natural!
We are all natural! Soft Touch (STH) sessions offers the internal work with the inside of the horse & human. ~Traditional Lessons are --external --to get the same job done!
A PROBLEM HORSE --is usually misunderstood, and/or unknowingly abused.
It took me one year for that breakthrough to bypass a particular horse's psychological barrier, a th. gelding who was harshly abused by his owner/trainer, because the horse nervously turned his head, as he galloped around the track.
A year later, we found the perfect owner for him at $3,000.00. [His 'finder fee' in 1978] Our horse was worked and then sold again after only 11 months, for $40,000.00. He then became a Grand Prix Show Jumper. He went on the Florida Show Circuit, where he was again sold for $75,000.00. This was in the 70's --a long time ago.
11 years later, he [the horse] returned to Maryland, where I saw him -many years after he had his name changed. I went into the stall, gently saying his name, "Falcon Maze!". He perked his ears, and bent his head and neck around to place his nose, next to her neck, pressing me into his shoulder, where he held it there, for over a minute. I shed tears of joy. He remembered her, and he was saying --thank you.
I was asked many times -if 'I was angry that I didn't make that much money?'
His nose on my neck, was worth quite a bit MORE than money could ever buy!
I have never been in this work --for the money!
Money, as I see it --has caused many an abusive treatment of the horse for prize money in this sport and otheriwse. I have seen this from my teen years, when a simple ribbon or a $10 dollar bill made everyone HAPPY, and gave the riders BRAGGING RIGHTS. It changed when the pot --so to speak went upward. The fun dissolved, and the greed for money took over. Sorry to have still seen this as money pots have increased --into the years & $$ --we have now! Money has made the 'sport corrupt! We need to get back to the basics and the fun involved with the horses! Do you agree? Sure hope so!

ARE YOU Considering sending your horse away, --for 'training'?
Will you know:
--what happens to your horse?
--how much work has gone into them?
--any issues that are of concern, and what is being done about it?
--is your horse's head being tied to the ground, or their chest for training 'purposes'?
--thrown to the ground, to gain control of them?
--if your horses 'spirit' has been broken or robbed?
Are they tied to a post on a short rope for hours --as a training technique --and you PAY them to do this?
Will you know --if your horse will return --liking people -or, have they been starved and ridden hard to break them down or to calm them? --It happens!
You better stop in unexpectedly to see what is really going on! SOLID ADVICE --even IF this is not acceptable! They are YOUR HORSES and you have the right to know what's going on with them ---right?
Will they return --just knowing they have a 'job' to do?
Will they return to you broken-hearted?
Will you know your horse -when they return, or -will they just seem --just well behaved.
-Will they not play anymore?
-Will they have a 'bland' look in their eyes?
-Will they just stand around, and not seem to care anymore?
Do you realize that horses can also feel betrayal --from humans, and they can also be hurting?
Horses suffer from emotional & physical abuse, just like people.
