From Rick Samuels
“I recently did a clinic and demo for a trainer where I was working. Had about 50 people show up and as I explained the differences between traditional equine dentistry and natural balance dentistry the trainer could not decide what horse he wanted done for the demo, all 30 of their horses had problems that I talked about in my clinic. I worked on 2 horses for the demo, half way thru the 2nd horse the trainer told me all his horses were done 2 months ago by the same dentist they had been using for years. Both horses made huge changes overnight and they wanted all their horses done ASAP. About a week after I left there I received a phone call from that dentist, they said that they had went to the same equine dental school that Spencer LaFlure went to and wanted to know why I took all their clients and why did I tell them that there is a difference in equine dentistry. I explained that spencer found a better way of doing dentistry that works for the horse, using no power tools, special hand instruments, and horsemanship skills that allows the horse to stand quiet and calm. I also told them if they would like to learn more about it they could come to the school or ride with me for a day. Their only comment was the education they received can’t be that wrong. Since that time I have been back to that area 3 times and have done about 70 horses, all with great results. I would also like to say thank-you Spencer for giving me the knowledge and skills to help all the horses and owners since I started this journey with you, it’s been great”.

Spencer & Judy,
As you know, I am not one for many words, they just never seem to come out right, but I just want to thank you so much for helping me on my journey to become what the horses need. It is a journey that has only just begun. It is exciting to balance the horses in a way that fits them individually and come back a year later to see how they have bloomed into an overall better being, physically & emotionally. To see the changes and how well they maintain their balance when it is done right is awsome.
Your ever challenging us to think beyond the box and keep learning is so important to the whole. It is amazing to see where we started and were we are going, the future is an exciting thing to think about! I look forward to the journey of ever growing & helping the horses be the best they can be.
Keep up the high standards & good work!

My view on equine dentistry has changed during AWHD’s program and I am very satisfied with what I have learned. What I really like is how we are taught the important connection between the teeth and the rest of the body. Small details are of great importance and we learned how to perform anatomical correct adjustments of the teeth which again restores a stability not only for the bit, but also for the whole body. I am also grateful for the positive and friendly attitude of the school; the teachers are passionate and able to convey theory and practice in an inspiring way.
