It is with thanks to my four legged friends that my services can be offered to the wider equine community.
From the first day, many thousands of years ago, when man decided to mount the horse in an effort to improve his ability to travel, hunt, and explore further and faster, the horse has provided more service to civilization than any other single living thing.
In the modern world of technology the horse is no longer required to perform the tasks that he used to. Superceded by computers, vehicles, and implements, his role now is more of a sporting and recreation partner. With this comes more stresses and strains on his body as we ask more athletic feats from him, and in doing so we are responsible in seeing that he suffers no discomfort or pain from his usage.
Fads and poor practices are all to quickly adopted as being “fashionable” if mooted by the “right people”. Information for horse owners in the appropriate feeding, housing, equipment, training methods, healthcare, and also mental health for the horse is readily available in books, on the internet, or through courses with professional trainers and tutors.
I hope the readers will find this site helpful, and if you have any concerns about health or performance issues with your horse, I am happy to offer advice, and/or assistance if I can.
