"Our issue is rearing not striking. Can you help?"


Dear Keith...

Saturday, June 3, 2006

Hi I have been watching some natural horseman footage ("In a Whisper"). I am looking for some help with a horse that I adopted a few years ago. He has fear. We have come a long way with him but, defintely want and need some help at this point. This is a mature horse (18-19 yo 17.1 hand hanovarina-TB gelding) who had a previous life in stadium jumping from what I know about him. Our issue is rearing not striking. Can you help? Thank You, Sheryl Goodall
