Horses don't have a sound for pain. Puppies whimper. Kittens mew. Horses, on the other hand, endure. Silently. The performance horse world is full of silent horses. We can learn to hear them though, if we want to.

Why I started this blog
I have learned so much through my years working with horses and with and for horse people. My work has shown me that most soundness issues are caused by riders, trainers, popular trends in tack and farriery, and by a lack of understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the ridden horse. In this blog I hope to present my experiences with soundness issues in an interesting, readable, and entertaining way. I am currently caring for 7 horses in various stages of soundness and rideability. I hope you will enjoy my journey with them as we work to restore them to physical and emotional soundness.
