Good morning this is Will Faerber from Art2Ride and I am here in Orange County with Devon and her project horse Oxsana.
When we first began working with Oxsana she was having some problems from an old injury on her ankle and issues with her saddle fit. She was sore in the shoulders and every time the saddle would hit her she would look like she was off. Happily we have come a long ways since those days which we will show you now.
Devon is going to keep her in a stretch and go into a rising trot. We ask for a little more swing in her trot so that she will swing through a little more in the rising trot. Now it looks quite even. Now to develop her working trot she will bring the poll up, finding that place …
Good morning this is Will Faerber from Art2Ride and today we are giving you an update on Zoolander. Zoolander is our rescue horse that had been given to us because his owner was convinced that he was dangerous. What we discovered was that the horse was basically running away from pain: his saddle was killing him, his back was killing him and his feet were in terrible shape.

You can find a video about our horseshoer Kenny Lyon and getting Zoolander straightened out in our videos.
Today we are going to show you where …
Good morning, this is Will Faerber from Art2Ride and we are looking at Karen Loshbaugh riding our new project horse, who is still unnamed! We are still looking at names for him!

There is no dropping of his hips anymore or losing the back end and he is starting to work through his back! We can still see from having been draw reined in his life that he still wants to crimp over the neck just a little bit, but the neck is starting to get out longer and longer all the time.
We can see he has got more swing in his back …
