From my experience in training dogs for competition obedience, I knew I did not like the force method of training and am very happy to say positive training also works wonderfully with horses! If you're new to horses and/or training and feel in your heart that you want to train *positively*... I encourage you to take the time to search for a positive trainer. A few sites & trainers are listed on the Links page, if you're get a chance to check them out.
I am a member of World Bitless Association
and have learned to trim Raven's hooves myself through clinics and videos. She is barefoot, but gets Scoot Boots
on her front feet when riding.
If you are interested in adopting a Mustang, there are rescue groups that save BLM branded Mustangs from kill pens all over the country who would like to hear from you. I would be happy to set someone on the road to adoption, if you contact me using the email address below or visit the Links page where I have listed a few that are very active in saving Mustangs.
