“Sam” and “Stella” Making Progress on Their Road to Recovery

METHUEN, Mass., July 17, 2012 – When Sam and Stella first arrived at MSPCA Nevins-Farm in March they were in terrible shape.  The thoroughbreds, who had lived together for much of their lives at a farm in Central Mass., were severely underweight and suffering from numerous skin, hoof and dental maladies.  The horses were so thin that their bones were visible beneath their skin, and a painful gash on Stella’s leg had grown infected as a result of the filthy condition of their paddock.

By the time the Nevins Farm equine rescue team arrived, the horses were living in squalor, with no food or water to be found.  Their owner had begun a prison sentence months prior, leaving the 19-year-old equines to fend for themselves.  Sam and Stella were so weak that they were transported via the Equine ambulance—the cornerstone of Nevins Farm’s equine emergency response and rescue operation.  Once at the farm a thorough examination of their health was undertaken—which confirmed the horses were suffering from a host of health issues.

Cross Training - Good For Humans - Good For Horses

Story Via & Photo: Tim Hayes

In 1996 I participated in a Natural Horsemanship clinic given by the late Tom Dorrance. Even though he was a cowboy, well over half of his students rode English.  Tom was a creator of miracles when it came to helping people with their horse problems (he called them: “people problems”). His message was simple: “humans and horses need to get along better.” Tom was not only acknowledged as a great horseman but the father of a revolution in horse training… what is now referred to as Natural Horsemanship.

When the clinic was over I asked Tom what books he would recommend I read. I was expecting him to say something like, Lessons From The Ranch. Instead he simply said read “Dressage” by Henry Wynmalen. I had heard of Dressage. I knew riders with English saddles practiced it. However it was the last thing I thought a California cowboy would know about much less be recommending.
