A Unique Sales Offering for Those That Can Be Bothered
Ray Hunt would say: “This works for every horse, but most people can’t be bothered”. “It’s easy to start a horse, it’s finishing them that is hard.” “You can’t believe the difference in a horse that hasn’t lost its trust in people.”
For those that desire attaining Unity with a horse under saddle (I can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t, it’s nirvana) and can be bothered to dig deep and take a journey that is fun, exhilarating, soul searching and tough . . . A very Unique Offering is available. Start with the opportunity to purchase a horse that has not lost its trust in or respect for people. These are horses that are inclined to look to humans for the answers. Join in bringing that horse along with the unique experience of Leslie Hammel-Turk. This is not about training a horse, it is about recognizing that all that we could ever want from a horse is already there, including a strong desire to get along. It is about making it the horse’s idea and communicating in a very specific way as partners.
It is not about ‘they don’t want to’ and ‘don’t lose a single battle’. It is not about robo-horse. It is about looking from the perspective of the horse, who profoundly wants to get along and is looking for a good leader. It is about discovering that the best that the horse has to offer are gifts that can only be realized through a mutually understood conversation that operates in both directions and leads to attaining the horse’s attention in a positive way.
1997 Chestnut Stallion. Pedigree. Palo is a rare individual in today’s market. He is a straight Russian stallion line bred to Nabeg through *Nariadni. Phenotypically he is very similar to Nabeg, with a huge eye and extremely powerful body. *Provodka, a Topol granddaughter, and a Nabeg granddaughter, is a beautiful example of what made the Russian Arabians so desirable. She is a big beautiful athlete and all of her offspring are highly prepotent in these traits.

2007 Bay Stallion. Pedigree. Avanyu is a straight Russian from the rare Kann sire line. Arsenal has been a superlative individual in his natural ability to carry himself in the ideal self-carriage for a high level riding horse, he also has a sweet highly trainable temperament. Even better is his ability to consistently pass these traits on to his offspring. Avanyu excels in these attributes. This cross has been very successful. Avanyu’s full siblings have all been outstanding horses and have gone on to produce even better. Beautiful head, neck, body, with incredible athleticism. Going very nicely under saddle, video.
