My Favorite General Horse Commentary Site:
She's outspoken and "snarkly" but always thought-provoking and always on the side of the the horse.
LINKS TO FRIENDS AND RESOURCES:
|I have moved my list of the 2007 EMM trainers to their own page. CLICK HERE to see all 100 trainers, along with pictures of their horse, their horse's herd area of origin, and news articles, websites, blogs, video, etc. of the various trainers and their progress in this exciting contest.|
For 2008, the Mustang Heritage Foundation has increased the size of the Extreme Mustang Makeover to 200, and added several regional Mustang Challenges. That's a few more than I can take on, but do go to the MHF's website for updates! www.mustangheritagefoundation.org
The following Organizations are set up for "(Virtual) Adopt-a-Horse" or "Sponsor a Burro" Gifts and Pledges: (some of these have materials for teachers, school projects, etc.)
If you can attend an "In-Person" Gentling clinic - DO SO! In addition, some of the professional trainers and breed clubs occasionally give workshops and clinic about gentling and early training. Check with each one listed below for times and dates and availability. Here are some good ones that I know about:
PROFESSIONAL TRAINERS AND CLINICIANS:
These are just a few - many that I know personally and can recommend wholeheartedly - others have been sent to me by friends or the trainers themselves. There are many, many more, and I recommend that you "do your homework" and find the right trainer for YOU:
