    I guess this issue upset me more than I thought. I woke up this morning fretting about it! I recently read (and have read in the past) "Research suggests that a good night's sleep can help you remember a newly learned movement skill, such as playing the scales on a piano or serving a tennis ball. In a study, people who learned a new movement skill and then slept before testing demonstrated greater improvement in accuracy and speed compared to people who learned the skill and were tested before sleeping. " (For more info search for "sleep dependent motor skills"). Are horse brains so very different in how they learn? I guess my feeling is that none of the 3 wonderful, popular and skilled clinicians gave much thought to whether what they were doing was actually in the best interests of the colts or their future riders. Phooie on that.

    I woulde LOVE to talk to someone who has taken one one of these wonder-horses after one of these 'miracle' sessions!

    Me too! Anyone on this list have a horse that went through a "miracle" session? Report, please!
