In this day and age, there is no reason for horse cruelty. Unfortunately to show the effectiveness of the Sierra Horse Halter in stopping really bad habits, we show horses on You Tube that are in a full state of rebellion when wearing the halter for the first time. These horses are either in full panic or are displaying their most severe rebellious behavior when wearing the halter for the first time. Anyone who has never seen a horse act like this thinks the Sierra Horse Halter is causing this to happen. It is not.
These behaviors have served these horses well for years sometimes to get them away from being handled or tied. None of these horses are being hurt in any way by the halter or handler. Some are being flagged or stimulated to move, as any good horseman knows that you cannot teach a horse much without movement. When these horses do decide to move it is usually in a way that shows how they feel at the moment. All demonstrate how they have handled their feelings in the past. By full body panic or rebellion. They want to get away and have learned a way to do it. All have shown this behavior time after time before we ever showed up. By using the Sierra Horse Halter, the horse is forced to stop and consider what they are doing.
Sorry folks, this is not cruelty. Cruelty is letting these horses continue on with these behaviors until they destroy themselves or a person handling them. A recent horse trainer who discovered the SHH told me that the halter seems to reset the horses mind and gives them a new place to start from. This is not cruelty but kindness!

Figuring out the size of Sierra Horse Halter to purchase for your horse is not hard. But there are a couple of circumstances that may change the size you need from the obvious. Ordinarily, if your horse uses a small medium or large regular nylon or rope halter, you would choose the same size of SHH. If [...]
In talking to a customer after she purchased a Sierra Horse Halter, I realized I need to clarify a few things. The Sierra Horse Halter is a great tool for correcting unwanted habits, and I have been telling people to use it all the time in place of regular halters. As horses are so smart that they [...]
A Jaquima is a traditional head gear for training, riding, and showing the Paso Fino Horse. There is essentially two kinds of Jaquimas; training and showing. The show Jaquima is usually made of finer types of leather, narrow and dainty. The biggest difference besides the fineness, is the Barbada or [...]
I have ridden horses all my life; literally! My mom and dad had horses when I was born, and I was put up on them for pictures etc as soon as possible. My dad had to sell my mom's favorite horse to get me out of the hospital when I was born, so I have [...]

Our M Lazy 5 Cattle Ranch is as real to me now as it was then. As I stare into the campfire remembering, my fire hypnotized gaze stares past one Dutch oven holding two browned and stuffed Cornish game hens and the other a pineapple upside down cake. A fresh salad with [...]
Janet graciously let me use her video to show how the Sierra Horse Halter helped her to communicate more effectively with her thoroughbred filly, Jancy. Janet called me to discuss the filly and the SHH sizing. She told me that the filly was determined to be a “free spirit” to the point of being somewhat dangerous [...]
