Do you think you own a one-sided horse?

Do you own a horse that cannot take both leads well, or change leads smoothly?

Did someone tell you that your horse was born that way?

Curled to the left inside the mare, maybe?  For 11 months?

Consider re-balanceing the hooves and working with your

horse from both sides every day so YOU

can correct the imbalance in your horse that was caused . . .  by PEOPLE!

Right-handed owners, grooms, professionals, riders,

handlers and trainers are the ones responsible for

creating one-sided horses.

The horse who has difficulty executing turns and balanced maneuvers equally in both directions on the ground and undersaddle is more common, than not. 

In a case like this, there is a 100% chance that  -- only rarely, if ever -- is this animal saddled, bridled, mounted, dismounted, or lead from the right side.

 

LET'S CONSIDER THE ACTUAL FACTS

Before capture and handling, Mustangs travel straight.

Unhandled Australian Brumbies and the wild ponies from

Chincoteague Island also travel straight.

Undomesticated Przewalski's horse the African wild assonager 

(including the Mongolian wild ass), Zebras and kiang . . . travel straight. 

A horse with well-balanced feet that is handled regularly on both sides 

can re-discover its natural alignment and correct balance

that is its birthright.   Simple enough! 

My students are learning how to provide their horses, and their students' horses, with the balance they require under saddle for a safe athletic and enjoyable experience. 

 For best results under saddle, learning how to operate at the END on a lead rope and lunge line in a balanced, respectful way. This must be clear to the horse and rider long before for the first ride! 

 Refinement is infinite.

It begins with the feet . . . and knows no end.

There is no need to punish, over-correct or frighten 

the one-sided horses that people create.  

Let's get them balanced, so we all can enjoy them!

Join us this spring and learn what you can do to prepare yourself

to re-balance your horse for a summer of safe rides,

successful competitions and greater enjoyment of each other!

  DID YOU KNOW THAT . . .
