    Late weigh-in.

    The child (11yo) in the video in question is mine. We no longer own Leo, the NZTB

    I had no idea that such an interesting discussion was going on while we were getting ready for Ocala. I have enjoyed reading the questions and comments, but then again, I have all the extra details for proper context.

    For those of you who might be interested..., I will fill in the details: English Ivy could not have coined it better, when they mentioned that some "owners and trainers don't have a clue", and that often times there are "big price-tags" involved.

    The horse in the video was actually indorsed by our previous trainer for my daughter to ride in the Childrens Hunter ring, and to eventually be her "Jr. Hunter". We now know through education, that Leo was muscled quite improperly (and before our work with Anne Kenan and while we were still with this other person), would throw himself over the jumps, pushing off his front end in a frantic launch. We learned quickly that owners and students can only become as smart as the people they surround themselves with. Obviously we left the trainer, but not before loosing a H-U-G-E amount of equity in Leo.

    Since then, we have had a few good laughs at the ridiculous lack of expertise that led to such a poor purchase in the first place! Although I do not think the other trainer did anything out of malevolence, it was just ignorance.

    We are on to our second year of working periodically with Anne Kenan. The video you saw from two years ago attached to the discussion, illustrates a tiny piece of the work Anne did with my youngest and Leo. The happy ending to the story, is that Leo's entire top line changed, he developed a good strong neck, and wonderful hind end, was calm and non-inverted at all gates, and all in 4 months! He was given away to a good home.

    My daughter, now 13, has just finished using the same techniques that Anne taught her for Leo, on her mare that needed some recent rehab for a ligament strain. The slow, consistent technique, has been very helpful. The mare should be ready to return to the med. Jr. jumpers.

    Thank you, Anne!
