Re: RC: Colts and Bridle Path Trimming

I have known some people to use a Stabilizer on horses when they first
trim works by putting pressure on two points behind the ears
and also on the gums (like a lip chain but nicer as it's a plastic
tubing)...I have seen horses so relaxed that they can be trimmed without
anyone even holding their heads...they practically go to sleep.  It's a
very humane method of calming a horse.  It doesn't work on all of them
but I have seen some great successes with little or no conflicts.  We
started out a young filly of our own who refused to have her feet
trimmed in one. We used it a couple of times and the experiences were so
positive for her, she now stands with no trouble at all and no
Stabilizer.  Just a suggestion.
