Does anyone have any suggestions, links, anything?

I want to make sure if I make one it is sturdy and safe but not the weight of several elephants.

Dony, you need to use the Google advanced search function to find the many threads we've had on this topic before, that are already posted here, complete with photographs.

Go to the Google home page, enter "advanced search" in the bar, and then when the page comes up, you enter your keywords in the appropriate bar. You also then fill in our Forum address (http://esiforum.mywowbb.com) into the bar at the bottom. This will limit the search to just the material in this Forum.

You'll find quite a variety of good suggestions. -- Dr. Deb

Dr Deb, In one of these threads on pedestals you mention a video called 'The Art of the Thread' by Circus Knie, but I have googled extensively and can't find it; do you have any more information to help me track this down please? Many thanks, Ruth

Hello Dony,
This is a photo of one of my pedestals. Strong enough for two big horses and light enough to transport .
Light tubeing steel ,strong weldmesh sides, and reinforced wooden ply top ,covered with rubber for grip. Wider at the base for stabiliy.
Hope this is helpfull ,
Brenton

Brenton generously sent me dimensions for his pedestals and I had a rectangular one made up. Fascinating to see the different responses from the different horses. The 22 year old shetland marched straight up and onto it; the 12.3hh 22 year old pony marched up, looked, and jumped it clean from a standstill twice until I put his hoof up on it and he realised what it was for; three young geldings from the same mare all did exactly the same thing - stood at the pedestal and yawned repeatedly! Most interesting was my teenage daughter and her horse - I started by telling her that getting up on the pedestal wasn't the object of the exercise, it was about the process and what one learned about oneself during it. She looked at me as if I was crazy. Thirty minutes later, she flounced away in frustration and still hasn't arranged it for her horse to get up on the pedestal - the only one of the 12 horses on the place who hasn't. Needless to say, she hasn't been open to a conversation about what she learned about herself.

Loreto,

How much to make this one? I want something sturdy yet light weight to be able to easily move.

Thanks,
Kathy

Hi Kathy,

From memory this cost about $200.

Cheers

This is for Ruth, above: 'The Art of the Thread' doesn't seem to bring up anything, but go to YouTube and use keywords 'Freddy Knie' or 'Circus Knie' and you will get clips which are chunks of this film and some older films of these very great horsemen.

Thanks for providing more photos of your equipment, Brenton....it is very helpful of course.

And Loreto, yes, immature individuals do indeed 'flounce away' and avoid getting anywhere near self-examination. You just have to give them time .... sometimes this means the time to fail so badly that they hurt themselves. It's never desirable but it does have a strong tendency to improve the hearing. Cheers -- Dr. Deb

I have found available on http://www.yourhorsestuff.com/ a DVD called Circus Knie of Switzerland: Liberty Horses in the Circus Ring.
