Life Through the Senses

services for every horse, in every discipline, from anywhere…

“Harmony with their environment and contentment with their peers, this is the natural desire of every horse, and a common thread between us. Where investing in the physical horse is essential, an investment in the emotional horse is priceless. For it is not the horse’s responsibility to understand our nature, it is our responsibility, to understand theirs.”  ~Kerry M Thomas

You may know what the horse is, but do you know who your horse is?
Should I buy this horse? 
Should I breed my horse? 
Should I retire my horse? 
Why is my horse ________?
Is my discipline choice and goal compatible with my horse’s psychological makeup?  
What kind of training program best suits my horse’s herd dynamic nature?
How good is my horse’s sensory soundness and ability to manage stress?
Does my horse have the psychological capacity to optimize their physical talent? 
If you’re not asking questions and seeking answers, you should be.

A La Carte Horse Hunter: 
Kerry has discovered some of the finest athletes and pleasure horses from around the world throughout his career. The long list includes horses for Royal Family members, elite racehorses and performance horses of all levels, therapy, and even the ideal trail horse for the casual rider. If you want Kerry to scout and approve horses for you through his vast network of trusted equestrians from around the world, in all disciplines and levels of riding or purposes, this is your option! Finding the right horse partner for whatever your goals may be is a major financial and emotional investment and responsibility. For any relationship to work there must first be compatibility between the two involved, in effect both horse and human should interview for the role they will play in one another’s lives to help make a proper determination. Kerry’s pioneering work in behavior genetics and herd dynamics puts him in a unique position to help you avoid the wrong relationship before you invest in it. For the good of the human, for the good of the horse.


Your first step is to send an email and get scheduled in for your free 30-minute consultation interview with Kerry to discuss your goals and service parameters. 
Second Step: Once Kerry has determined if he will be able to assist you, the horse hunt can begin. Because of the time involved in searching there is a one-time *$150.00 retainment of service fee. 
Third Step: When a potential horse has been located Kerry will apprise you and if you decide to pursue, Kerry will arrange to do a behavioral assessment and full sensory evaluation to determine compatibility. The profiling fee is $300.00 Flat-Rate per horse.  


*The retainment fee is non-refundable and Kerry does not guarantee he will find your dream horse. Compatibility between horse, discipline goals and human partner are all essential parts of the equation that must be considered. Unless otherwise agreed upon, it is standard that the client is responsible for additional fees associated with vetting, travel, and shipping of the horse. You will be given an estimate of any additional fees thus avoiding any surprise charges. 

 

Not just for the buyer, adding a full Behavioral & Compatibility Assessment of the horses you’re selling provides additional value to your clients and helps improve the chances of success for the horses you’re offering. It’s better the horse’s go where they fit, instead of having to fit where they go.
