Sooner or later most horse folks meet or hear about a horse that is dangerous or unstable. People who own such horses seldom wish to keep them but have no idea how to get them off of the feed bill honorably. Every horse person has an opinion about every horse question. This problem is no different, but here’s the unvarnished truth.
If you parent or teach special-needs individuals or victims of abuse you already know that reaching and repairing broken places is far different that teaching and relating to humans or horses who don’t think, react, or process in completely “normal” ways. CAN’T and WON’T look very different in horses or humans who arrive with obvious physical scars and/or well-established emotional scar-tissue or adhesions.
