WHY IS MY HORSE MIS-BEHAVING?
I have been prompted to write this article because in the last month, December, 2003, virtually every horse that was sent to us for re-education, in other words (Problem Horses), had various Veterinary problems which were the reason for their behavior. How unfair on horses is this? The mind boggles at what horses have to go through in this Country and it is mainly caused due to a lack of education about the things that matter most. How cruel?
Almost daily, I meet people who tell me how much they love their horses and that no-one can look after them as well as they can. They lecture me on the needs of the horse when they drop them off and I often tell them that I look after horses better than the owners'. They look at me with a dis-believing stare and we go about proving the point with every horse that comes on to this property, in a way that counts. Listening to the cries for help of these much loved steeds, not with a brush or another rug
Here are 27 of such Horses.

The ultimate example of what I say in this article, appears at the end of the above DVD. In case you ever get to see it (have the tissues ready) you need to know this:
The list goes on and on. Please think about it. Try to hold your emotion whilst training and to think about these things first before getting all frustrated or shitty like most do. Especially you teenagers'. If 100% of the last 20 horses that have come through our hands have had varying degrees of Veterinary problems, what do you think the percentage around the Country would be?
So, when your horse plays up, think Veterinary, un-happiness and confusion first!
C'mon Pony Club, start teaching them the important things first.
