Anyone interested in having a hands on workshop on how to read and handle and communicate with a horse your going to shoe ?

Body positioning of farrier
reading the horse
understanding why the horse is moving and how to correct it
picking up front and rear legs safely and successfully on unruly or hard to handle horses
how to keep or teach a horse to keep its leg on a foot stool when working on foot
and an open discussion and hands on demonstration on anything else a particular farrier or horse owner may be having when working or attempting to work on a horse.
SAFETY when working with difficult horses.

I am in Alvin, Texas on the south side of Houston. if this peaks an interest contact me and lets see if this can't be set up.

my 2 cents worth ;)

I would be interested in a workshop. Maybe if a few got together, one could be done that wasn't too expensive?

If there were a group from a particular area, would you be able to travel to do the workshop? I'd be interested if we could get something set up in the South East.

The answer is yes.
If this is of real interest to you then contact me for details and we can make arrangements.
I have done clinics all over New england and Cornell university .

Contact mark Gough if you would like some input or help setting a workshop or clinic up. he is on this forum.

Thankyou for your interest.

david y'all hook it up close to alabama I will do my very best to have a client of mine that has 16 drafts bring about 3 of kicking monsters...I think would be a great for the test or clinic...because they have been trimmed many times in stocks and on the ground and not get any better so must be just me...they are damn near impossible but doable and if those can get trimming I will be sold...

You set something up and I'll be there, I've been meaning to get in touch with you and beg a seat in your truck for a day or two. You should contact the TPFA and see if they can help promote it.

Nothing worse than trying to pick up a draft hoof on a horse that's always been done in stocks. it certainly makes monsters out of them. stocks should be illegal . . . .

Great idea Joey, I have missed the past years clinics on knife making and such...:D

I do know a good location in Cartersville, GA. I'll have to find out details but, I'll look into it and let you all know what works out.

Travis,

No owning a draft and not teaching it to stand should be a crime...I usta hate them but now I stand back and let the throw a hissy fit...what took 3 days to do 16 drafts turned into 8 hrs with a set of stocks and a disk grinder..lol.. but I did not know bruce had cobditions on the clinic..or does he..

Hi Dana,
I do a couple of drafts that were never done in stocks and they stand pretty well. I do one draft that had always been done in stocks prior to the current owner getting he,r and she was a "monster" till I started using Bruce's harness. It isn't that she is mean, but she had tree roots planted to the ground and it took every ounce of energy to get her to even pick up her front feet, never mind holding them up! When she wanted them back, there was no holding on, and it would begin all over again. With the pully system and the tie off on the harness I can get her hoof up and done in no time (well, almost no time, she still has pretty dang big hooves The owner did buy me a set of Bud Nippers and I've just started using them. They are heavy!!, not sure I like them yet). For her hinds I've always had the owner back her up a step and then walk her forward one step at a time and as she walks forward, in mid step I take her hoof and place it in a cradle on a hoofstand. She's usually very good about resting it in the cradle (unless the flys are really bad). If you are only doing just one draft or a bunch of drafts I strongly recommend Bruce's harness system. Thanks Bruce, I no longer dread the draft!
Denise

i would love to see one of Bruce's clinics! the two Clydes i work with now have never been in stocks and i can pick up any of their four just by asking. but the four Clydes that the owner had before these two had always been done in stocks from the time before he bought them. even as gentle as they were and knowing and trusting me completely, they just freaked if you tried to pick up a hoof outside of the stock. :(

Not necessarily. Some years back someone called when I wasn't home and got my wife. Asked if I had stocks to do a draft horse - she told them not only no but hell no They didn't give up and called back after I got home. I told them if the horse needed stocks, not only no, but..... They said they really didn't think he needed them, it was just that he'd always been done that way. Would I give him a try without stocks? I agreed to try and you know that was one of the best horses I ever worked on in spite of being 17 hands and 2100 pounds. Did him for several years before he was sold.

The best things about the good old days -- I wasn't good and I wasn't old.

The older I get, the more horses I shoe, the fewer things that I can absolutely, positively fix.

Travis --Denise was at one of my clinics and she can tell you The only request i have is that you come with an open mind and a willingness to try what i show you.

As far as what horses to bring ... I usually don't want to know anything about them until I take their lead.

Now I am no magician and some horses are beyond help, but for the most part around 90 % of the animals are schoolable if done correctly.

I don't care what you bring as far as breed or what they are used for. if they have an issue standing still or giving their leg then that is what i want to have brought.

I am not there to teach a horse to accept a saddle or to teach a horse to lead or anything else that most trainers work on.
I strictly teach an animal to stand quietly for the farrier or vet. and to give its leg with no resistance when working on it.
I also teach farriers and horse owners how to work with the animals in a manner that will build a partnership and not a stick of dynamite.

I also sell my DVD but I do not sell the harness. Any harness maker can make it for you following what i show you. or you can order them from Meaders Supply corp. in Rochester, N.H. You can also finsd them on the internet.

Contact me for my expenses .

I can also give names of farriers already using my harness and have worked with me if you wish.

my 2 cents worth ;)
