29 of 47 SPORTALOOSA I N T E R N AT I ON A L Issue Four, 2010 www.sportaloosa.com mare than I would have liked.
I cooled her off slowly and hosed her down and she seemed fine.
We went in and had smoko,came out and ‘oh no’! Her body had blown up like a football and she was colicing bad.
Too far from any vet so what to do?? I caught her and did the emergency colic moves, followed by a full Bowen treatment.
It was like I had stuck a big needle in the football! Her muscles relaxed and shrunk to their normal size, the bellyache stopped and after only fifteen minutes she was eating grass like nothing had happened! Horses like the Bowen treatments.
Often I have had a skittery weanling in a stall that may have only been caught once.
After the first three or four Bowen moves these weanlings are starting to follow you around the stall.
By the end of the treatment you can approach them from either side without alarming them.
They have no fear,you are the nice guy that does nice things to them! One time I had a neighbour that had a quiet old chestnut mare that he used around the place to muster cattle.
She wasn’t a very good looking horse, in fact I would say she was about as ugly as a horse can be! Well,she started to bolt with her rider.
He thought she was taking fright of him on her back, so he put blinkers on her so she wouldn’t be able to see him sitting on her back.
She kept on bolting.
He also had a horrid,ill fitting saddle that was causing the problem in my opinion..but not his.
We decided to see if Bowen would fix her.
You start a Bowen from the back and then move to the front of the horse.
I had progressed to the shoulder moves on the old mare.
I did one shoulder move when she arched her neck like a stallion does to a mare and squealed like a stallion…I thought “you mad old bitch!!” I did the other shoulder and she did it again! It was like I had become the mare and she the stallion, as every move I made from then on she would arch her neck and squeal.
When I’d finished and we let the ‘old dear’ out into the paddock, you know I couldn’t believe my eyes, she suddenly looked a fairly decent type of a horse.
Her muscles had relaxed and became ‘fluffy’ and her body seemed to have realigned itself to what a horse should look like.
And after the guy threw the old saddle away she never bolted again and gave many years of good work to him.
