Producing therapeutic benefits through teaching horsemanship.

article provided by BWC2

When veterans call Because We Can – Because We Care, one of the first questions asked is, “Are you a therapy provider? We take pride in saying “no” to that question.

Veterans have told us they don’t like to be followed around or studied. They say it makes them feel like another number or lab rat. We are not therapists, nor do we claim to be. We also don’t believe in shoving “happy, happy, joy, joy” in their faces and sending them on their way. Why put a Band-Aid on something that requires surgery?

The Compassionate Equestrian; A Course in Lungeing

The Compassionate Equestrian
by Dr. Allen Schoen and Susan Gordon
published by Trafalgar Square Books
Reviewed by Lucy Bobeck

If you truly care about your happiness and your horse’s happiness, you have found the ultimate book. Now run or gallop and get it! Horsey folk are seen as tough, and often they are. What if toughness does not elicit the best response from a horse? Do we need to explore our intuitive side? Veterinarian Dr. Allen Schoen and trainer Susan Gordon show just how important it is to put our ego aside and retrain ourselves. By using 25 principles of compassionate equitation, the authors guide us through connecting with some of the most difficult horses.The 25 principles are divined from Dr. Karen Armstrong’s principles of compassion.

A Life Changer for My Horses

by Chris Cox

As a professional horseman who has been fortunate enough to find success doing a job I love, companies often ask me to try their equine products in hopes I’ll become a spokesman. I don’t take these requests lightly. Making a change to my program isn’t something I’m going to do without first researching a product and gathering convincing evidence that I’ll see a long-term benefit. Then I might give the product a try.

My 13-year-old self sets a tone of single focus in final stages of Olympic preparation.

by Lauren Billys

When I was 13, we received an assignment to list what we wanted in life. Before I could even process the question, my first thought materialized as I picked up five separately colored pencils and drew five iconic rings.

I have always been drawn toward the Olympic Games. As a kid, I pictured myself at the Games, in the village, competing, hugging, crying, standing on the podium, and loving every minute of it.

Dear Kim,

I read with great interest your article on Riding Schools (the source, after all, for every equestrian activity) and we were thrilled to be mentioned as a “recommended” riding school in the Los Angeles area!! We have worked very hard, for more than 20 years, to produce a safe, fun-filled and correct riding lesson program. We are also a U.S. Pony Club Riding Center. We feel that which is learned with pleasure is seldom forgotten and that applies to beginning and intermediate riders of all ages.

by Michele Vaughn

What is it about fathers and sons? Sometimes sons follow in their fathers’ footsteps, and other times fate steps in to take a different direction. For 16-year-old Ben Ebeling, the son of dressage superstar and Olympian Jan Ebeling and his wife Amy, there’s a little bit of both.
