When good horses go bad

When you have a good horse and all of a sudden things change and he starts acting cinching when you tighten the saddle, or stepping away when you start to step into the stirrup, or throws his head when you put the halter or bridle on it doesn't always mean he's misbehaving or there's training issues. Ed believes that 90% of horses misbehave because they have pain issues. By misbehaving it is the only way a horse can tell us that something is wrong.  Ed has had many horses that people send to him that are already trained they just need to have pain adjustments and then he has to teach their minds that it will no longer hurt to do the task that we are asking them to do. With the help of his halter that he developed it takes much less time and effort and helps the horse learn that the  pain has disappeared faster.
