Molly & Natcho
This is Molly and her horse Natcho. Natcho is retired from a dressage career. He is from Knee Deep Again Farms in Michigan. Molly is working to make Natcho a great kids horse.
While working for veterinarians they noticed how I was able to administer med's and do procedures with horses that most people had a difficult time handling and they started requesting that their clients work with me to make their horses safe to handle.
I started my own business called Misfit Acre working with problem horses while I was a Critical Care Technician in West Palm Beach, Florida. I worked as a critical care technician for Dr. Byron Reid in South Florida. http://www.reidequine.com
Dora The Explorer
When I first got Dora from Alabama she was very difficult to catch and halter. Dora and I worked with resistance free horsemanship training on getting her to trust people and let them do things with her.
She is now doing beginner english riding lessons and trail rides. You should see her jump! She is jumping 18" cross rails with ease.
Dora is my birthday / festival pony party pony giving many young children their first pony ride ever. Dora is offered for sale. Check her out on our news page.
