Permanent methods of identification- updated since post was cut off

What if your horse was stolen, or you were separated in a natural disaster, or you simply needed to prove ownership.  Could you do that easily and legally?

Let’s talk about that today.  The benefits to having easy, legal proof of ownership has many benefits.  From identifying your horse in a natural disaster situation to potentially saving him from slaughter.  Different states have different rules for permanent identification and some states have no rules.  We will touch on some states here but make sure you check with your states Department of Agriculture if you need any clarification.

I am going to start with the brand states. Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.  While the regulations vary in all these states this usually means a horse has to be inspected when travelling or when sold.  I know Colorado has permanent cards and they make it like a title for your horse and you don’t have to have them inspected every time you travel.  If you live in a brand state and can get a permanent card make copies of it and stash them in your vehicle and with a friend or relative so you have access to them even if you don’t have access to your house.

Sample of a Brand Card

Sample of a Brand Card

A horse doesn’t have to be branded for the inspection.  The inspector will note the colors, markings, scar and any other distinguishing marks on the horse.  Some are using pictures these days as well.  Make sure if you horse has anything unusual it is noted in case you need to identify them someday.

Speaking of pictures these are an excellent way to show distinguishing marks.  Take pictures in both the summer coat and winter coat from all four sides with close ups of markings and the head.  If you clip the horse in the winter it might be a good idea to include those too.

Going back to brands they can be used as identification as well. They should be noted in the pictures or inspection card but you can note them as well in your own paperwork if you are not in a brand state. If the brand is your own it makes it even easier for identification because that is registered with the state.  If you purchase a horse already branding make sure you have noted that.  Brands can include hot brands and freeze brands and some are done by the breed organizations and that would be noted on the horse’s papers.  Keep in mind some states don’t view papers as any sort of identifying paperwork.  Check with your state though.

Lip Tattoos are commonly done in racehorses and this is also an identifying mark.  If your horse has one take a picture of it and note the number in your paper work.

Microchipping is a newer method if identification and it got a lot of press after Hurricanes Katrina and RIta.  Louisiana requires permanent identification of all horses so approximately 80% of the horses were microchipped.  That led to the easy identification and return of over 90% of the misplaced horses.  Which is a great feat.  It was due to that fact that I decided to microchip my horses.   The microchip is implanted in the nuchal ligament in the neck.

Drama, Drama, Drama

Do you feel some people get off on drama?  I do, I think some people need it more than oxygen.  It is looking like Scamming Sophia found the COTH thread and posted a very interesting response.

From the thread (Fugly responses in red):

I have people on the Facebook pages, screen shooting EVERYTHING being said. I am only going to reply to the main things in this forum, and we will all be done with it. I have HARD evidence on my part, and I will be showing it in court.

Let’s start with “Voices for Horses.” A friend of mine and I were selling coffee, for a well known organic gold company. We were called by an agency, and explained what we were doing. They said we did NOT need a 501c, or whatever form it was, because we were not posing as a rescue. When anything sold, we only got the difference between the warehouse price and the price it was being sold as. Each box would have approximately a $5 difference. The seller of the coffee and I were working together to try to raise money for a local rescue. I NEVER posed as diamonds in the rough. I said that any proceeds we got, would go to a local rescue LIKE diamonds in the rough, as an EXAMPLE! We admit to misrepresenting where money was going to decieve people. We had a deadline on when we could sell the coffee through the company. We hit the deadline with absolutely no sales. I am as good at selling coffee as I am at training horses.  If we made any sales, we would have written a check to a rescue. Which one? We aren’t telling! I thought I was doing a good thing trying to raise money for a rescue, instead of keeping the money to ourselves. What money I thought you didn’t sell anything?! I deleted the page, because I was not going to deal with the drama.

I posted on a forum about how to help a “hot” horse. I was only asking the question, to see what people did. Shadow was never “hot.” He is one of the calmest Thoroughbreds I have ever known. I thought you were a trainer, surely you have dealt with this before. 

I decided to sell both my horses, due to my pregnancy. I knew I wouldn’t have the time to be with them. I also knew I wouldn’t physically be able to care for them. I had them appraised, and I asked for what the appraisal was. My board was coming to a close soon and winter was coming, so I dramatically lowered their prices hoping to find a good home for both of them, before I got to far in my pregnancy.

I never asked people to give me feed/hay. I asked where I could buy some, and the cheapest place to buy it.

Now let’s talk about Shadow, the Thoroughbred I bought in Chesapeake. He was a former Polo Pony, but was released due to height requirements. I was informed he did buck the original’s owner off. After bringing him to the barn I was at, I rode him. He did completely fine. I rode him almost everyday, my friend rode him, and my boyfriend at the time rode him. We never had him do anything wrong. I decided to lease him out, so I posted him on Craigslist. The leaser NEVER once complained about anything, but the leaser was caught (by multiple people) abusing Shadow. One day, the leaser brought her boyfriend out to ride Shadow. Her boyfriend made the decision to wear spurs, and he FELL off after Shadow made a sharp turn. Her boyfriend was NOT an experienced rider (Which he told us he was) and he wanted to canter. We all saw how that went, and he did not get hurt. It was RIDER ERROR! I was NOT the one who called the Police. My leaser called the police because she was “hit in the face” by a woman. I did not believe my leaser, and I was not going to get into the middle of it. I terminated her lease shortly after that day. If anyone else got bucked off riding, they were probably not suppose to be on Shadow. Another leaser I had would just run him, then put him away sweaty…so I terminated her lease as well. I had another leaser named A who told me she was a trainer. Pot, Kettle? I allowed her to ride Shadow, and she was caught by multiple witnesses doing things she wasn’t suppose to be doing. I asked her to stop, and she threatened me. Her lease was then terminated and I did get a protection order, because she threatened to harm me. Evidence proved so in court, and I won. No one ever mentioned ANYTHING about him bucking. Shadow was ridden by kids and beginners with no problems until I sold Shadow to a lady. She is learning how to ride on Shadow with a trainer by her side. She LOVES him and has her kids riding him too.

Now let’s move on to our current problem. I bought an Arabian in Suffolk in the beginning of July from a lady. The lady with no name! She told us her house caught on fire earlier, and she could not afford to keep Spirit. We PAID this lady, and Spirit was rightfully ours. He was in a SMALL pen, knee high in mud. He was severely underweight (we have photo evidence of the day we bought him). The person we bought him from was very emotional, and did not give us much background on him (besides he was beginner safe). After getting him off the trailer, we gave him a bath. He was completely covered in mud. That is when we found out he had an abscess blow out, and we called a farrier to work on it ASAP. We started riding him, and he was very good. I let my friend use him for trails, and she had no problems. We moved him to a barn in Suffolk. By this time, he had already gained over 100lbs and the abscess was already half way out. So you were riding him with the abscess half in? This barn was not a 24/7, so we had to stall him overnight. He was a little pushy when leading him into his stall, but other than that, he had no problems. He was still being ridden 3 times a week, to build his muscle. I decided to sell him in August, as I am pregnant, and being around horses is not the best idea. Where were the other two horses or is this a different pregnancy? I have screen shots of my original post, and it clearly says he is for an experienced individual because he is pushy around food and high strung/energetic. He never threw kicks, bucks, and he never bit anyone. I had a K.B message me about him, and I even told her he was pushy and high strung. She agreed to come out and test him. She rode, and the only thing he did was walk away from the mounting block. KB told my friend and I, that she was experienced and she grew up riding/being around horses. I made a payment plan with KB, which was reasonable. She signed a payment contract, and always talked so well about Spirit. I was contacted by a lady named J, claiming to be the original owner of Spirit. She told me she SOLD him to the person we bought him from with a no re-sale contract. I asked J to provide me this contract, and gave J several weeks (almost two months) to do so. She would always tell me she was out of town, busy, etc. J only came out to the barn twice, and still never brought any paperwork with her both time. I asked J to fax it or email it, and she still would not do so. I told J (more than 30 days in advance) that I was selling spirit, and I cannot do anything for her without her original contract. KB asked me to get J’s permission to sell Spirit. J gave me permission, and I even had a section in the contract for J to sign if she wished to. It was never signed by J, because she was ”out of town” again. I even noted in the contract that J had not given us any kind of proof that J was the original owner. K signed the contract knowing this. Between August and the End of September, KB only came out 3 times. We let her make a final payment, that was lower than the price we agreed on. Spirit was listed for $1000, but we allowed KB to pay $785, and we even trailered Spirit FREE of cost to the new location. KB saw us load Spirit with no problems, along with her husband and my husband. I agreed to give K a saddle set from the beginning, but I was not going to give up my nice saddle for free. So I bought K a consignment saddle. I had already given her a large discount on Spirit. Every time I asked K how Spirit was doing, I always got good feedback. On November 1, Spirit was moved without my knowledge. I found out he had moved by dropping off blankets to this new barn, and being told that was Spirit. I have a signed paper from the barn owner saying it was Spirit. My contract states K may not move Spirit without my knowledge. All she had to do is send me something saying that Spirit was moving. K gave me an excuse DAYS later, saying she sent me a text from a hotel phone in Puerto Rico. I have been VERY flexible with K at this point. I wasn’t going to reposes Spirit, or take K to court. Spirit had only gained about 50lbs since she has owned him. I thought you had already put all his weight back on.  You were riding him right? You wouldn’t ride a horse that needed weight or encourage that behavior would you? We went and visited Spirit in his field, and he did fine. On November 11, K texted me saying she was SELLING Spirit. I asked her why, and she told me that Spirit was dangerous (after knowing Spirit since August, and Owning Spirit since September). K NEVER once mentioned that Spirit was dangerous, and K even sent me photos of her daughter riding Spirit. I told K I would take Spirit back, but I was not providing her a refund (that is what the refund policy was in the contract). I told Karen she could sell Spirit (since she seems to only be out to get the money she paid, from what she told me), as long as it was to a good home and I knew who he was going to. I even told her I would find a buyer, and she told me I had two weeks to do so. On Wednesday the 12, K then told me she was going to sue me for selling Spirit under false pretenses and that I need to pay her, for her to drop the charges she made against me. She then demanded she was going to my husband’s command to tell them to take money out of his paycheck. I told K once more, to sell Spirit and I was done with her. He wasn’t my problem anymore. K has owned him for two months and now all of the sudden, he is dangerous. K constantly demands that I pay her, and then she will drop the charges. I told K to stop contacting me, but she continues to do so (asking for money). She is trying to charge me for slandering her name, but she is doing the exact same thing to me along with a bunch of other people.

I am just warning you that anything badly said about me with my name in it, is called Defamation of Character. Best defense to libel litigation is the truth. If this does not stop immediately, I WILL go to the magistrate. You guys have RUINED my name, company, and my husband’s name under false statements. Please get a freakin’ life, and leave me and my husband alone now. All you guys have is opinions that are not backed by any kind of evidence. Luckily, I have all the evidence I need. So stop this childish game, and go do something better.

This is the last of my words. No one will hear from me after this. I do not care what else people have to say. Only evidence knows the real truth. Good bye.  I am taking my toys and leaving!  

Guest Blog- Working Horse Trust

After a long time following the Fugly Blog, I finally have a reason to write for it.  And it’s a reason that is making me incredibly sad.
For the past couple of months, my husband and I have been volunteering at the Working Horse Trust (  Based in East Sussex, England, the Trust’s mission is to help preserve and promote the few remaining breeds of heavy horses.  They particularly concentrate on Ardennes horses and Suffolk Punches (severely endangered).  They’re a small charity, with only about fifteen to two dozen horses at a time, most of which were bred and born on the Trust’s land, Forgewood Farm.  Any horses that they sell are kept track of, and they’re known for breeding quality animals.  One of the Suffolks bred there, Forgewood’s Benjamin (, was imported to Australia to help improve the bloodlines there.  The Trust promotes the heavy draft breeds as part of England’s heritage, and for modern uses such as organic farming and ecological logging.
They keep one stallion, a Swedish Ardennes stud named Brunte, and all colts produced there are gelded unless they are of exceptional quality; they know one stud is enough for a small farm.  All of the horses are trained to both harness and saddle, with all of them taking turns at construction jobs and/or demonstrations.  They also do competitions, from halter to draught to cart racing to log pulls, and have won many ribbons.  Their horses have even represented Britain at France’s Route de Poisson draught race (  Brunte in particular is a working stallion, and is so well-mannered and gentle that even an amateur has no difficulty handling him.  On open days, members of the public can come in and try their hand at driving, the horses so calm and obedient that even a layperson has no trouble at the reins.
They also take amazing care of their horses.  Last year three of their horses had major medical problems, ranging from hoof tumours to a broken pelvis, and they nearly broke the bank getting the best medical care possible for them.  Jo Ambrose, the woman who runs the Trust, has said that as long as the horses are enjoying life, they will do everything possible to give them a chance.  And it works; all three horses have made good recoveries, and their oldest mare, Unity, is still in excellent health at age 28.  The horses live on lush pasture all through the spring and summer, and then live in comfortable indoor pens for the winter.
What I’m trying to say is that this place is a wonderful charity, a place dedicated to the heavy draft breeds, one that produces quality horses who are also well-trained, well-managed, and well-loved.  It’s run entirely by volunteers, and those volunteers are determined to educate visitors about the care of the horses, as well as to prove that there is still a place in the world for the heavy horse.  Seeing and working with these beautiful, gentle animals every week is a
Now here comes the sad part.  The Working Horse Trust was established a little over two decades ago when they rented a large acreage in Eridge Park, East Sussex.  The land was little but wasteland when they came there, with no buildings, no running water, no electricity, no grazing, no fencing, nothing.  The Trust built everything from scratch, from sowing hay to laying the plumbing to building a beautiful barn and series of pastures.  All built by the volunteers and the horses, this has increased the value of the land astronomically. And now, after over twenty years of tenancy, the Working Horse Trust is losing its home.
Eridge Park is owned by the Marquess of Abergavenny and his company, the Nevill Estate Company.  For several years now, the Marquess and his land managers have been pressuring the Trust to increase their revenues, opening the farm to the public as a tourist attraction, holding classes, arranging tours…all of which the Trust is willing to do, but they don’t have the budget to set up the necessary amenities, such as a cafe, a restroom, etc.  And the Marquess and Company, of course, are offering to help with none of these costs.  What they are willing to do, however, is take ten percent of the Trust’s income on top of the rent they already pay.  The Trust has refused to go along with this, and now are faced with losing their home.
It’s breaking my heart to see this, and if the Trust shuts down, it will be a tragedy.  They may have found a new place to live, but nothing is set in stone.  They need 30-50 acres of grazing land, preferably fenced in, and hopefully with buildings, though the last is optional.  And if they do find a new place and decide to keep fighting, they’ll need at least 50, 000 British pounds to finance the move.
It’s a massive undertaking, and thought of this wonderful place being forced to close, especially after all the hard work they’ve put into it, is horrific.  I’m hoping that maybe my fellow horse-lovers here at the Fugly Blog might be able to help out, whether with donations, suggestions of a new place to go, or maybe by volunteering (I’m sure there are Brits on here!).  The giant horses need a hand, and I hope you lovely people might be able to extend one.

Thanks to everyone for listening, and thanks to Fugly for the chance to talk about this!

Even when they make you money you don’t feed them

Over in the UK I thought they had tougher animal cruelty laws but I guess I was wrong.  Because if you starve your horses to a 0 on the Henneke scale, that is not a typo the vet classified two of them as ZEROS, and let them start to self mutilate because of the horrific lice infestation you will get one day in jail.  That is it, just one day to think about what you have done.  This happened recently to Adrian Alexander whose website claims he has provided horses to movies such as Braveheart and Sense and Sensibility.  He also runs a carriage business that can take you all around London.   I wonder if he showed up to a job with a horse looking like this:



One horse was so bad they had to put him down. This man MAKES MONEY on the horses.  What happened to it?  If he was providing horses to multiple movies that means he did a good job at one time and probably made some decent money doing it.  Yet he couldn’t feed the ones bringing in the cash.  He was big enough at one time to be interviewed for a NY Daily News article.   That was just in May of this year he was quoted “Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, I take them everywhere and nobody’s ever told me I’m banned,” said Adrian Alexander.

If his business was doing well why was he hiding these four horses.  To starve them and let them suffer with lice.


Looking at these poor horses make me sick and yet he only gets one day in jail.  The veterinarian who examined them said that there was so much feces in the area she had to remove them to even do initial examinations.  There most basic needs were not being met.

Sure is a different picture from this horse



Or this one from Sense and Sensibility



Actually looking closely the two greys look very similar, could they be the same horse?

I cropped the two faces and look at the face shape, the nostrils it sure looks like a very similar horse.  What an asshole to use a horse in a movie where he clearly made money and then treated him like this.

When this case came up he was already in jail for a marijuana charge.  I just hope the court has restricted his animal ownership in the future as clearly he has no right to own animals or have an animal related business.

Sherri Brunzell – First court appearance

Sherri Brunzell was in court this morning for her first motions hearing.  Brunzell was trying to challenge the lawful search and seizure of the horses and llamas.  The judge deemed both legal and that at this time she will not be getting any animals back.  She will have to continue to pay the care bond at $5400 per month for the remaining animals in law enforcement’s care.

The Justice for Dual Peppy Facebook page posted this about the hearing today:

“Randy Parker DVM gave testimony. He stated that femur bones of the 14 deceased were tested. The average age of the dead horses was 5-10 years old. The youngest was 3. Only 3 horses were 15 or older. No firm cause of death yet to our knowledge. The judge agreed there was probable cause and the seizure stood. The bond deposit had been paid, and other vet costs were ordered to be paid. Judge Sletta ordered she pay $5,205. for vet care; float, vaccination, farrier, worming. $12.00 per horse per day or $3600 per month. The Llamas $600 for vet care, and $15 per llama per day or $1800 per month till advisement in December. Next payment due 10/23.”

This is a great step in securing a conviction and getting justice for these animals.  We will keep you updated as we get more information.

Interesting update on Sherri Brunzell


I just heard that Sherri is hiring a veterinarian to come evaluate her llamas to potentially get them back.  Thankfully this veterinarian one is very well versed in the camelids and two doesn’t feel Sherri should ever have them again.

Does this mean she is going to try to get the horses back?  Right now she has a hearing on December 31st but the first care bond money is due 10/2 can she pay?  Is she going to ask for the horses and llamas back? Does she have the money to pay the care bond?   It sure seems if she is asking for an independent evaluation that she has intentions of asking for them back. Hopefully the court can see it is not in the best interest of the horses to go back to her.

Also the Justice for Dual Peppy Facebook page is reporting a dump truck and skid steer have shown up at the property.  Most likely to get it cleaned up. It is looking more and more like she is going to attempt to get all the animals back.  Let’s hope the courts can get it together to prevent all of that from happening.


I also wonder if the unrelated scandal going on in El Paso county is going to affect this case.  I sure hope not but they are not sitting pretty right now either.

We will be following closely and update if we hear more from the vet.

Sherri Brunzell just keeps getting worse.

The past few days a whole lot has come out about Sherri, about her horses, felony vs misdemeanor charges and it seems everything in between. What we now know is 14 skeletal remains were recovered from the property and 10 living horses (6 mares and four stallions), along with 4 llamas, were seized and taken to an undisclosed location where they are being properly cared for.  They have gotten much needed farrier care and better food to put their weight back on. Barring any true medical conditions they should gain weight fairly quickly.

Now we are hearing about the other horses involved in Sherri’s abuse.  There have been estimates that the value of the dead horses is over $2 million.  Which is so ridiculous since selling one could have paid to feed the rest for years to come.  Sherri owned Playin in Style and Playboys’s Madera both high level performance horses.  Although Playboy’s Madera would have been 32 this year.  Playin in Style would have been 18.  I haven’t heard from any reliable source if these horses are among the dead or living but I think it would be hard for a 32 year old horse to survive what Sherri put them through.

So why did this happen?  Why if she could have sold them did she keep them, hide them and then let them die?  Acquaintances of hers from Texas say she threw money around like “they were printing it”. I did find she has a large holding of mineral rights in Idaho.  But did the money run out?  Did her pride get in the way of caring for them properly?  These horses had to have had a regular vet when the money way good, who was it? Where did they go?  So many unanswered questions.

We do know Sherri has at this point been charged with misdemeanor Animal Cruelty.  I know a lot of people feel it should be a felony charge.  I think a felony charge is going to be hard to prove because there is going to be no way to tell cause of death from bones.  Which is really unfortunate because I think deliberate actions on her part caused all these horse’s deaths and she deserves the felony charge but there is no way to prove it.  Hopefully she has confessed something to investigators that they can use against her and bump up the charges but I am not holding my breath.

We are also finding out that the horses were in poor condition in September of 2013.  Several photos were taken and supposedly shared with the Brunzells to show their horses weren’t thriving.  The Brunzells claimed they were going to change their feeding program to get the horse back on track  but clearly that didn’t happen.  No mention of why the horses weren’t reported to the authorities then or if these pictures have since being given to investigators.


Taken in September 2013

Taken in September 2013

The AQHA has sanctioned the Brunzells and they are no longer able to participate in any events or have any other AQHA benefits.  I don’t know how that will impact the transfer of ownership of these horses when the time comes but I am sure the AQHA can make exceptions.

So where do we go from here? It is wonderful to see so many people stepping up for the horses and demanding justice for them.  To show as a community we will not tolerate this type of behavior.  We also need to remember while this is a high profile case, right now these horses are being cared for.  Every day there are horses who are neglected and abused.  If this case boils your blood but you are too far or unable to help look at local organizations that need help year round taking care of horses pulled from similar situations.  If you want to donate to helping the horses in rehab click here, If you want to sign a petition for the maximum penalty for Sherri Brunzell click here.

Update on Sherri Brunzell And Updated again!

The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region has finally been called out to help with the horses! Channel 11 News is reporting the horses are in the process of being removed.  Thanks to all that called, petitioned and work to get these horses out of the Brunzell’s care.  Now on to the criminal charges!


New news article, husband speaks out

This woman, and her husband are idiots.  They are now claiming that twelve horses died last year due to colic because of the cold.  Nope sorry they may have died to exposure from the cold because they had no meat on their bones or maybe they did colic because their stomach was eating itself.  Either way it is a very poor excuse.  These people are lazy, stingy assholes.  The horses died and they couldn’t deal with them. How about the several livestock removal services, oh yeah those cost money and then maybe they would see that the remaining horses aren’t looking so good either.   It is too bad that the horses have decomposed to bones so it will be very difficult to determine cause of death.   The article says they met with a vet yesterday, I wonder when the last time that happened was.  They are probably in desperate need of teeth floating and wormer.  Because if you aren’t feeding them you aren’t giving basic care either.

If they hadn’t been caught when would they have cleaned up the property?  When they all were dead?  This is way too little too late and they need to be held responsible for what has happened.

Last night I reread the sheriff’s statement and it got to me that they said the horses had food and water all along.  So the people who found them were lying.  The video they have of empty bins was doctored?  Come on. I am checking into if this family has political connections because something is fishy here.  Seriously if child protective services rolled up on a case of 12 dead toddlers would they leave the remaining ones because “we don’t know how they died” NO they would pack up the survivors and get them out of there.  Animals are just as innocent as children.  With the DDFL Harmony center just down the road they could have easily taken the horses.  That is what they are there for 100% law enforcement seizure this case would have been perfect for them.

There is a growing movement in the area to get the horses out of the “care” they are getting. I love that Dual Peppy’s previous owner is trying to get him back too.  For such an amazing stallion he should be given the golden retirement he deserves not wondering when his next meal will come.

Here is the link to the change petition

Will update more as we get it.  This woman should be banned from ever owning horses again and we need to make that happen. Colorado does have felony animal cruelty laws and she needs to be charged to the fullest extent.

Cavalia – Odysseo


Since Friday is anything goes day I have to talk about the fantastic experience I had at this Cavalia show.  I did see it when it cam through my town last time and it was spectacular but this time around it is even more amazing.   The stage is larger and they make use of a lot of visual effects.  There are also more acrobatics to break up the all horse program which is nice for non-horsey significant others.  I love that they allow the horses to be horses and they use the stage as their playground.  During a large group join up one particular horse felt it was time to run around and have a good time.  It took his handler a little bit of time to catch him, with the assistance of other handlers but they all handled it like it was no big deal and the horse was well rewarded once in place.  The horses weren’t overbent, they weren’t overbridled, in fact a lot of them where in bitless bridles although it seemed most didn’t even need that. It was a wonderful demonstration of the bond one can have with a horse.  Or four or more!  In one of the mixed acts, there were horses and woman doing the hanging silks, one of the stallions looked just as enthralled with the floating fabric as we were.  The rider kindly kept stroking him until he took a deep breath and the show went on.  I don’t want to give away all the good parts but it really is a beautiful show with many harmonious parts between human and horse.  One not to miss.



I also love how the horses are treated.  Lots of play time, lots of time off and the best care imaginable.  They have their own veterinarian staff and grooms a plenty although the care if often done by the performers who join them on stage.  They even offer an adoption program for horses coming out of their program for any reason. In addition to adoption they maintain a retirement property for those horses who have retired from performing to live out their lives.  It doesn’t get any better than that.
