   “Look back at our struggle for freedom,

        Trace our present day's strength to its source;

             And you'll find that man's pathway to glory

                          Is strewn with the bones of the horse.”

                                                                      ‒ Author unknown


How is it that today's better bred, better fed mounts,

        used only for pleasure and sport, require so much therapy

                            to stay sound, even serviceable?

For thousands of years horses have helped humans. They served as transportation, they charged into battle and plowed the farmers' fields. They helped settle the west—crossing mountains, rivers and deserts.

    They had no massage therapists

    There were no acupuncturists, no chiropractors and

    Vets were rare or non-existent

The majority of history's horses stayed sound and healthy enough to spread civilization across the globe.

Yet today's horses are crying for help . . .

 We see it in the show rings—the tails swishing, the pulling, the bucking. We see the Rollkur and the Blue Tongue. We see the horses's over bitted, tied down and over flexed.

 “. . . what has developed is a bad 'craft' of training, in which the 'repairmen' (especially the veterinarians) of poorly 'crafted' sport horses have become firmly established as a 'necessary' part of the training team.” ~ Gerd Heuschmann, DVM, Tug of War: Classical Versus “Modern” Dressage.


What horse owners are saying about SCH Restorative Training: 

       "My horsess are happy! I'm having a ball!" ~ Hope M. 


Because of today's short-cut or misunderstood approaches to training,

many horses are scared, confused or simply hurting.
