I consult remotely by phone, Zoom, video, on horse problems on a no obligation, you PayPal me what you think I'm worth basis, satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. I've picked up a few things in seventy years of horses and always interested in picking up a few more.
Few things are more frustrating, expensive, and time consuming than mysterious horse issues. Something is just not right with your horse and pretty much everyone has an idea that when explored seems to go nowhere or make any sense. You can take your horse to five professionals and each will focus on a different area.
To a farrier almost all horse problems are farrier problems. To a veterinarian almost all horse problems are a medical problem. To a trainer almost all horse problems are a training problem. To a riding instructor almost all horse problems are a riding problem.
See the trend? One tends to diagnose what one deals with every day.
Horse owners are not likely to take their horse to the vet and say, "Dobbin is a little short-strided on his left hind." If they do the vet is very likely to perform all kinds of tests on the left hind and will quite often announce, "I can't find any reason for the problem, let's try this..."
That is because the issue may very well be in the right shoulder or somewhere else in the horse.
Since all parts of the horse are interconnected with each other all parts of the horse are dependent on each other. An ear problem can cause a hoof problem, a hoof problem can cause an ear problem. Any horse problem can be caused by a number of problems, any horse problem can cause a number of other seemingly unrelated horse problems.
The mysterious issue symptom can be any where in the horse and the cause can be anywhere else in the horse. The abnormality may not be where it presents.
If you have a mysterious horse problem that you have been unable to solve I can guide and work with you through a multi-faceted entire horse trouble shooting system that may bring us to a resolution.
You and I will work very closely together to explore some or all of the cause possibilities. Nothing is off the table. There is a wide-range potential causes that should be examined. We will examine a number of different factors that hopefully will allow us to zone in on a resolution.
Depending on the mysterious issue we will go over a number of searches for the possible causes of the issue. It literally can be anything that is why one must keep an open mind in searching for hidden issue and lead us in a solution direction.
Most horse owners are so focused on their horses they don't see them. Most professionals are so focused on their profession they don't consider other professions. Probably the most pronounced case I ever worked on was a mare in Chicago who had a funky trot much to the displeasure of the owner's dressage instructor. I get up there and find out the horse was a registered TWH that was half stock horse. The owner was shocked when I quickly pointed out the mare had a straight down TWH shoulder on one side and a rounded stock horse shoulder on the other. Same with the hips, except the problem was on the diagonal. She had two different horses in one and that mare would never be able to trot or gait smoothly.
The issue can be anything. We can be so close to something we can't see it well.
The very first thing I'll guide you in is assessing the horse's energy field to discover any energy disruptions that may be interfering with the the horse's energy flow. ALL beings have an energy flow much like the North South magnetic flow of the earth where each cell of the horse communicates with every other cell of the horse. I'll show you how to develop your own energy sensing ability and how to chart your results. You and I will take the results into consideration and use them to zone in on potential trouble areas.
You and I will also go over the horse's conformation at rest and then assess the horse's movements to see how its conformation affects its movements. You and I will carefully examine its pics and any videos of the horse's movements. We may examine the horse's movements during gaits, both tacked or untacked. We will also use tracking to examine the marks the horse's footfalls leave on the earth. Nothing moves on the face of the earth without leaving readable marks, hoofprints can tell us a lot of what goes on in the horse. Many being's issues show up in its tracks.
You and I will also mentally split the horse the horse side to side and compare each side of the horse to the other. Whatever we find on one side of the horse we should find on the other side of the horse.
If you have a mysterious horse problem feel free to contact me. You will know more about your horse than you ever thought possible.
Most of the time I can help remotely over the phone, ZOOM call, from videos, but if you prefer I can work on site as well. Here is an example of an extremely puzzling remote case that turned into an on-site case - The Chicago Gaiting Problem.
