Zoolander Ready For A New Home

2nd May

Good morning this is Will Faerber from Art2Ride with my lovely wife Karen Loshbaugh on our horse Zoolander!

We just wanted to make the announcement today that Zoolander is for sale! We have rehabbed him and are selling him for only the cost to rehab him (board, etc.). He is an eleven year old Canadian sport-horse. We rescued him because he was bought by a beginner rider who was scared of him and thought about putting him to sleep. We could not let that happen, so we got him! We have been rehabbing him a little over a year, minor foot problems but mostly lack of training problems. He is looking very nice now! He is working over his back beautifully!

Anyone looking for a really nice horse that can’t afford a really expensive one, here is a really nice one that you …



Zoolander Working Trot

11th October

Good morning this is Will Faerber from Art2Ride and I am here with my wife Karen and our project horse Zoolander. Zoolander is developing quite nicely across the topline and stretching into the contact, so today we are going to show you what it’s like to bring the horse up and find how high we can develop the working trot before the horse drops it’s back.

We find the horse’s position in the stretch and then all you have to do is simply bring the poll up as high as you can without the horse losing it’s back, that is what the rider’s goal is. This will tell you what the horse is ready to do because it will drop it’s back if you bring it up too high. Then we are going to try a little sitting trot to see …



Zoolander Canter

11th October

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. That is the biggest thing that we have had to deal with for the last three months that we have had him is just getting his feet to the point where he is sound enough and comfortable enough on his feet to be able to be worked. 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 …



New Project: Zoolander 30 Days

14th July

This is Will Faerber from Art2Ride and I am here with my lovely wife Karen Loshbaugh riding our new project horse who we have named Zoolander! Thanks again to all of you who sent in names for him! We wanted to give you another update. This is 30 days in and we have corrected his shoeing and saddle fit and he has had 30 days of working over his back.

We think you will see a big difference! As Karen takes him down the long side, look how nicely this horse is beginning to swing through his back. He has a lovely big stride! Now that he is beginning to engage, we see how beautiful this horse is capable of moving. Remember folks, this was basically a rescue horse! Look how beautiful he is capable of moving!

Warmbloods are almost becoming like …




From the Blog!

Join me as I post weekly blogs covering many topics relating to Classical Foundation Training. I have intentionally left out the word "dressage" because many people have a negative association with the prevalent "crank and spank" approach or that it is a sport for only those who are afraid to jump.

Dressage as it is meant to be is an understanding of how to best optimize a horse's movement and ability to carry a rider, surely a benefit for any horse, any discipline. It is also important in maintaining your horse's safety, soundness and sanity.
