I've developed a program that is simple, effective and requires no special equipment (except a walking cane from Walmart). This program helps you to understand that the horse and look at the horse as God looks at us. I hope you will join me on this journey while I work with my current equine companion - Gizmo.
Gizmo is a 5 yr old quarter horse cross gelding. He is quite the baby. He loves people and loves a treat. I adore him. He came to us green broke with little knowledge of lunging or manners. He has a great canter, but a terriblely irratic trot.
