"Trot Gretchen, Trot!" that's what my mother tells me I used to say to the dog, yes the dog as I, at the age of 6 "lunged" her in circles in the driveway. I was too little to do this with the horses, so our poor dogs were my guinnea pigs. Today our five dogs are free to be dogs, I'm big enough now to work with the horses although I'm not fond of lunging as a training aid anymore. The extra 30+ years of experience has helped shape my style. In fact, I have found that what I do is more akin to Ceasar Milan's (the Dog Whisperer) approach. My role is to bridge the gap between animals and their human companions in such a way that allows for a deeper understanding of each other and an increased awareness on the human's part, of the lessons that the animals are in our lives to facilitate for us. Please visit the "Testimonials" blog on the Info Sharing Blog page to read what some have to say about their horse's training experience here.
The emphasis of our site is on natural horse-keeping, but we hold all animals dear to our hearts and plan to offer health and care tips for dogs, cats and other animals as well. This is a full service equine facility with a focus on naturally keeping our horses. More about what we feed and why. I was born and raised here with a variety of animals on the farm. I have been riding and caring for horses since I was a toddler (trust me it's a long time). Since experiencing some personal health issues it has become a passionate pursuit to uncover everything possible about natural ways of feeding, supplementing, pasturing, treating ailments and partnering with our animals. My husband, Steve Scotia Equine Dental Care is an equine dentist who has been practicing for several years. He travels throughout New England and gets lots of practice with the home herd as well. His mother Jana also travels throughout the state caring for equine mouths.
