Don't you hate it when your horse is off and you can't put your finger on why?
You know how he's off because he's pinning his ears, he's stiff to the right or left, he bites the air when the girth or cinch is tightened, he's not picking up his leads, he seems disjointed or any one of a number of reactions.
You know he's off because he seems to have lost his edge. He's not the same horse he was. Or he's just not turning out to be the horse you expected him to be.
Knowing why he's off can be a real mystery.
I was talking with a friend this morning who said it doesn't matter what the problem may be there will be a long list of causes and cures ranging from shoes to manes. At this writing the main culprit for whatever the problem is ulcers caused by some event in the horse's life and the cure is usually is usually some kind of "ulcer guard" often without any veterinarian diagnosing.
I have a knack for working with problem horses. It comes from 60 plus years of dealing with them. My interest in problem horses began many years ago when they were the only horses left to ride at the riding stables where I swapped my labor for riding time. The agreement was I would work my brains out doing scut work and my pay was supposed to be riding time. Well, there was always a reason why I couldn't ride the working horses: they were tired from hauling cash customers around all day; it was too dark; it was month with an "r" in it; you name it.
Every riding stable had a bunch of vice laden horses that no one wanted to ride. I'd sneak rides on the vice ridden ones since I couldn't get riding time on the good horses.
I learned real quick how to deal with them.
I actually enjoyed working with them more than with the tractable, easy going ones.
As I said, I work with problem horses and I'm very good at it. No brag, just fact. My web site gets close to 10,000 hits a year from people seeking information about how to get along with horses. I have a herd dynamics procedure in print that is in use pretty much every where in the world there are horses. People haul me all over to do clinics and to work with their horse problems. People bring their horses to me. They call and email me for advice.
I'm in the process of retraining an older broodmare who severely injured me 10 or so years ago (As this was written) before I became a little more enlightened to the less forceful ways of horse handling. She was young and very green when she did a number on me and I rode her very little afterwards. Since then she has been a broodmare.
And now I'm going to start riding her again.
Step one is determining her physical state to see if restarting her is a sensible option. In this video I put her in front of a video camera and began really looking her over for my own knowledge to discover and deal with any physical distractions she may have before they become training problems.
And since I was going to add the video to my sales inventory I turned it into a general "What to look for..." when pre-riding your horse or before you arrange a pre-purchase examine for a horse you are considering adding to your herd.
This video is almost two hours of horseman's anti-problem insurance.
We cover the horse from the tip of its ears to the bottom of its hooves, from the tip of its nose to the end of its tail. We talk about the importance of eye-color, coat color, different breed characteristics. We talk about conformational issues and their effect on balance. We talk about the importance of tail placement. Ears, nose, face, hardly any part of the horse escapes notice.
We talk about mirroring the horse with itself to compare body planes, you name it.
60+ years of horse observations are flowing in this video, much more than that when you add the experience of the others who were there taking part into the mix.
And we even cover "energy sensing." We show how to detect disturbances in the horse's electrical (energy) field to find places that may require vet, chiropractic or Certified Equine Sports Massage Therapist attention.
My videos are crammed full of information. There is more information in one of my videos than in any other horse video. My videos are homemade. What you see is what you get. Nothing is pre-worked or rehearsed. When something doesn't go the way it should, you see that as well. My videos are not Hollywood productions, in fact, I call them Wartznall Productions. They aren't intended to be pretty, just powerfully informative.
This video is probably the poster child for Wartznall. The horse is a buckskin and the camera thinks she's white so the footage is a little washed out whenever the mare takes up a good portion of the image but it isn't enough to trash the video.
But, that's for you to decide and here's how...
This video is UNCONDITIONALLY GUARANTEED. Period. Period. Period. This video comes with an iron clad can't go wrong guarantee... If you don't think the information it contains is worth what you paid for it, simply email or contact me for a refund.
