Q-Link for Equines, Hmmmm...
I opened an email today from one of a few riding gear shops who send me their online specials. This ad baffled me. At first glance, I thought this was a free keychain with purchase offer. Then I read further and saw it's some kind of new-age energy balancing gadget - Q-Link Equine. Supposedly you put this object on your horse somewhere and it will have a calming effect and help the horse to focus by balancing his "biofield".
Uh, okay. May the Force be with you.
I went to the website to try and understand exactly how this thing is supposed to balance horsies' chi. No explanation made scientific sense to me, I even looked in the human version section. Still sounded like using crystals and astrology to me. When I saw the price of this nifty little ticket to equine sanity I nearly coughed up my coffee. $199.95!! Nearly $200.00 for this?? I have a better idea for that $200.00, how about spending it on a few more riding lessons and work with a qualified professional to address your horses' problems? How about spending it on a vet check to determine your horse has no health problems that are affecting his attitude?
Call me a skeptic but I can't believe this thing is the miracle worker they say it is. Anyone out there know of this? If you have used it, what was your take on the results? (and if you did buy it, were the results so dramatic it was worth that much money?)
