guided Talon through our many obstacles and large open areas with hills and other natural features, including one of our ponds! I should point out that in these open areas, Joe does not use a lunge line and the horse travels mostly straight. As Talon became more comfortable on his feet in all

terrain riderless, we finally added a rider, but it didn’t make a difference because by then the horse was so confident that with or without a rider, a saddle, or a bit, he knew that there wasn’t going to be any pain. But still, we felt that Talon wasn’t as happy as he could be.

THE SECOND LAYER

Despite his vast improvement in riding, he was still

aggressive with other horses and he had a hard eye. I can’t explain it but his eye was simply not soft. He literally made the hair on the back of my neck stand up when I was in close proximity. And, his sweat had a funny odor that is hard to describe. My other horses smell pretty nice even if they are dirty or sweaty. Enter the Photonic Torch. Developed by Dr. Brian McLaren in Australia, it is acupuncture without needles

and can be used on humans, horses, even dogs and cats. I purchased my first unit in January 2004 and one year

later, after seeing the remarkable results on our horses and my own painful back and knee, we became distributors for Dr. McLaren. Because I didn’t feel comfortable around Talon I didn’t use the torch on him until we had him about a year.

I spent a lot of time on Talon’s first treatment. Because

I still didn’t trust the horse, Joe held his halter line for the treatment. Talon began to breathe harder, then he sighed, and next he started to pant when I was treating the areas on and around his hocks. I decided to spend extra time in the hock area due to his strange reaction. When I was finished, and turned to write my notes down, I heard a loud crack. I missed it, but Joe said Talon lifted and cracked his own back! Overnight the eye on that horse changed. I noticed

it, and guests and people who work here noticed it. I discussed the incredible results with Dr. McLaren and found that quite by accident I treated the “aggression” points located on the inside of his hocks. I had just solved another mystery!
