This video will help you when shopping for a horse regardless if it is one you are purchasing as an investment or show partner, or one you are selecting from a rescue, rehab, or equine adoption agency.
There is a valid concern and a worry among horse shoppers, or newcomers to the horse industry, about choosing to adopt a horse over purchasing a suitable partner from a reputable Breeder. Horses who have been let down, neglected, abandoned or abused by their humans have baggage that may be hard to determine. They can have physical or temperament issues that will need to be factored into the decision making process. How can you sift through these issues to determine if there may be a suitable partner underneath the situation a horse in transition might be in?
The Horses without Humans Assessment Video is designed to help you navigate through that process. There are MANY diamonds in the rough out there and we want you to be able to find one of them. There is a horse out there who is perfectly suited to your situation and needs. Our trained staff, will make all efforts to be available, when, and if, at all possible, to answer any questions, or to screen video, and offer advice as you search for your new partner.
Here is a fact that may help. Almost all horses who end up needing a new human to care for them were once the horses you might have sought out from those same breeders or trainers at some point in their lives. They fell off the map of credibility through no doing of their own. They ended up in their current position because somewhere along the line their human could not, or would not, care for them anymore. They were lost, without a voice of their own, or a chance to make a decision that might benefit them, either short, or long term.
