Brass Ring Sun Farms accepts horses with histories of problematic or dangerous behavior for retraining.
To understand what you will be getting with your problem horses you have to understand a bit of my training philosophy. A horse does not have the capacity to be stubborn or spiteful. Instead, most horse misbehavior comes from anxiety, confusion or pain. Horses manifest their anxiety in a variety of ways and, like humans, have different learning styles. I focus on understanding their behaviors and creating a space for them to learn without being fearful. I acknowledge when they are worried and we need to take a breath to review previous lessons that they are confident about.
My program is the right fit for the owner who is not looking for a 30 day wonder, but would like to create a solid and well trained horse that they can enjoy a long-term successful partnership with. I focus on finding the root of the behavioral problem, rather than trying to create a quick fix that falls apart once the horse is back home.
If I suspect that pain is at the root of your horse's problem, I have an excellent vet, chiropractor, massage therapist and farrier ready to jump in and work together to resolve the issue. If your horse has permanent physical impairments, I will review them with you in light of your goals as a rider early in the process.
A troubled horse will get a fresh start with us. By working from the beginning, we are able to find the missing pieces and help the horse find answers that make him into a safe riding partner.
