Ed Crothers, the Equine Analyst, grew up on a farm in southern Ohio. Ed's father was a blacksmith and horse trainer. He instilled the love of horses in Ed at a very young age and Ed began developing the horsemanship that has continued to develop over his entire life.
After spending so much of his life riding and working with horses, it seemed a natural progression for Ed to make a career in the equine world. Ed's early career was centered around farm, stallion, and broodmare management at several Ohio Thoroughbred farms.
In 1996, Ed decided it was time to establish his own farm and he began the development of Cedar Brook Farm, a farm devoted to Ed's love of training horses of all breeds and disciplines. This farm is where Ed developed The Crothers Way Philosophy and is where Ed does his work with "Good Horses Gone Bad," Ed's term for horses that have developed a bad attitude for some reason that may not be readily apparent!
Today, Ed continues to breed, board, and break Thoroughbreds, as well as breaking and training horses for pleasure, barrel racing, trail, etc. Ed also spends his time doing treatments on horses and cattle, along with demonstrations of his products and techniques, and is continually developing new products and methods to help you.
