From 2000 to 2003 Ed Crothers watched and noted every horse he worked with and over that 3 year span Ed analyzed over 500 horses. Through his study Ed would look over every vet work up chart and chiropractor chart and he noticed that many horses that acted with the same level of disrespect also suffered from the same level of pain issues. Throughout his study of these horses and the horses he still works with every day, He is able to quickly look over a horse and add together all the past information he has seen with horses with the same disrespect symptoms and comes up with what is the root of the disrespect. Not only is Ed able to find the cause of the pain/ disrespect but he is also able to fix the problem. Ed has found that when a horse has a pain issue that fixing what is the cause of the pain is only the first step, Retraining the horses mind to know that this pain is no longer an issue is the next step and could possibly be the most important .
Ed Crothers Pain Free Horse Program starts with first identifying the pain area or areas then finding the best way to address them. After the pain is managed Ed then moves to retraining the horses mind to show them that the pain is no longer stopping or holding them back from performing certain tasks. This step can take a few hours to a few days, it is all depending on how large the mental pain is. Many horse develop bad behavior as a way to move away from or avoid painful conditions. By addressing the painful issues many horses lose their bad habits with the use of retraining their minds that the painful condition is no longer there.
