Many horses are happiest when they get to run, play and interact with each other in a consistent herd. Not only does this improve fitness, it has been proven to reduce or eliminate many health problems such as colic and ulcers as well as psychological challenges like weaving and cribbing. Having our horses in a "herd" also gives us the opportunity to watch how they interact with each other and to integrate this into how we work with them.
