Animal Nautropathy

We understand it can be overwhelming to provide the best care for your horse, when the marketplace is full of mediocre and toxic supplements and products. Combine that with a traditional health care system of suppressing symptoms and never getting to the core of health issues. Along with an altered lifestyle and natural habitat. It is no wonder there are as many illnesses, lameness, disease, and horse waste in the industry. I know most of it is purely unintentional, but it is time to become aware, educated, and empower ourselves to make better decisions. If enough of us start doing things differently and more natural we can bring a change and improve the quality of life for our horses!

As an adult, I now see even as a child and teen, the steps and path that were leading me to where I am now. A life with horses was never a choice for me, it was just meant to be. I have tried to function and live without them in my life and it has never worked! My history and journey began viewing, practicing, and getting an education in traditional training methods and traditional horse health care. It never felt right and I always seemed to be searching out new and better ways to do things.

We all have that horse we will never forget...

Being an introvert and pleaser, it was never comfortable for me or something I wished to do. I very much like the feeling of fitting in and not rocking the boat. But the more horses I see suffer needlessly and the more frustrated and drained horse owners I saw then and continue to see now, I can not sit back and be comfortable about it.

With the support and following my blogs and services have acquired, it is clear I am not the only one that feels this way. I am here to take a stand for horse owners who are ready to get empowered and take responsibility to provide the best, most natural care possible in a balanced way for their horse.

The Audio Series Inspired by My Journey to Natural Horse Care-

We all have at least one horse that shaped our lives, one that made a huge impact and connection. For me that is my mare Pokey! In 2011, Pokey began struggling with what appeared to be a neurological disorder. Lack of balance, bouts of what seemed like dementia, temporary blindness, loss of her ability to control her hindquarters, etc.

It came on slight at first and then within a few weeks was very serious. I called multiple vets had various tests ran, medications tried, and options exhausted. It was after some large vet bills and the final answer from each vet for her was euthanasia. No horse owner wants that option, but I really had no peace about it, and it felt wrong!

I decided to lean into what I had been educated in and utilize the connections I had made in the alternative therapy industry, to find solutions to this situation. As I said that was 4 years ago and Pokey is still here with me to this day! It is not all sunshine and rainbows everyday, but she feels good and seems to very much enjoy her life.

Thinking of what her result could have been and these precious additional years (still going!) I would not have had with her has inspired me to share how I helped Pokey and changed the ending of her story. Because I want that for you and your horse too!

It is our mission here at Equine Essential Wellness to help you maintain and promote the health your horse currently has and reduce the risk of illness and disease in natural ways before they become a concern. But we are also here to help horse owners whose horse’s need to restore and rebuild health, like Pokey needed.

Are You Feeling Stuck in Your Horse’s Health Concern?

Do you ever feel like you see things differently?

When I start writing, I inevitably feel myself swallowed by fear. And it’s especially true when I notice that findings from my research are going to challenge long-held beliefs or ideas. ~Author Brené  Brown

I began with this quote as it speaks to me in the day to day of what I do and what I stand for. For many years I worked for traditional trainers, utilized integrated therapy, and even worked at a veterinary office. This time and experience was what introduced me to the desire for something more…

A passion and drive to find more harmonizing and natural ways to be with horses and provide them care. For many of you who have found my website, this desire will align with you and hopefully encourage and inspire you to step out and take the journey that is not common and sometimes scrutinized.

How do you then take courage and move forward in spite of those who misunderstand and judge you? For me, it was establishing a firm foundation of what I believe, know, and stand for. This comes from listening to your intuition and also putting in the time and effort to not just take advice from every “horse expert” blindly but to research and review information on your own.

What do you do when what everyone else is doing isn’t working for you?

Have you ever made a decision you were confident about, began down the path, only to find an endless crowd of people who suddenly appear to tell you that you are going the wrong way?

Even with over a decade of experience, comfortably and happily on my path, I come across those who feel the need to inform me on how crazy, wrong, or even uneducated I am… Many years ago that would hinder me and make me question myself and what I know regardless of what I have experienced.

Even today when I blog, do a consult or attend events where I share my viewpoints and experience, I find that I can worry about whose toes I might step on or who might get upset at me… then I think of all of the horses and horse owners I have helped and those who need someone to stand with them and look into things that no one will guide them to look at. That is what drives me to share what I do and continue to empower and guide horse owners down a natural path of health for horses, that has been lost and somehow been falsely deemed ineffective.

Finding the answers, confidence, and results.

Many of the clients I work with come to me with their minds swarming with opinions, facts, options, products, and even fears… I am here to clarify what is buzzing around in your head so you can make a clear and confident decision in your horse’s care.

Sometimes that can be through one on one consultations tailored to your horse’s current needs and situation. Other times it is through our online courses and memberships that will provide clear, no-fluff, empowering information that will serve you for years to come!

How we help you get from frustrated and overwhelmed to clear and confident is completely up to you! No more drowning in a sea of opinions or feeling like you are failing your horse. When my horse Pokey’s health began to fail and nothing I had been taught to do or was told to do helped, I felt defeated and heartbroken.

To find peace while your horse is experiencing health concerns is a process that begins by empowering yourself with information of what caused the concern, how it could have been prevented (if possible), and what can be done now. This is very different than getting a diagnosis, administering directed treatment for the rest of the horse’s life… It is also important to remember that as long as you feel overwhelmed, confused and frustrated your horse’s ability to return to health will be hindered.

If you are ready to get results, confidence, and the information you need to help support your horse’s health naturally, I invite you to get our FREE The Secrets of Equine Naturopathy PDF Guide, click here or the image below to get this guide sent to your inbox today. This is a great start to finding the peace and relief you are looking for.

Why is Educated Horse Care and Horsemanship so Important?

Understanding Why in Horse Health

Horse Care and Ham…

For many horse owners, myself included, our knowledge and understanding of horse care often was taught in 4H, pony club, or passed down from previous generations. Not saying that is bad, but here is a story that can shed insight on some issues that we may come across with this “passing down” of knowledge…

The Story of Grandma’s Ham

Excited for a holiday dinner with family, a daughter anxiously helps in the kitchen. Wanting to learn and share the traditions she has grown to love and cherish. As she watches her mother prepare her favorite ham, she is writing down the recipe and instructions meticulously so she can one day make it just like her mother, her grandmother, and great grandmother.

As her mother adds the spices, marinade, and finishing touches she cuts off two thick slices off each end of the ham.  “Mother, why do you cut off the ends of the ham?” asked the daughter.

“Because that is the what your grandmother always did.” replied the mother. The daughter wrote it in her instructions but decided when her grandmother arrived she would ask why cutting the ends of the ham was necessary, it just seemed like a waste.

After the rest of the family had arrived, and everyone was getting ready to enjoy the holiday feast the daughter asked her grandmother, “Grandma, why do we cut the ends off of our holiday ham?”

“Because that is the way I remember my mother doing it.” the grandmother replied.

With that, the daughter looked down the table to inquire to her great grandmother, who was smiling and laughingly said, “I only did that so the ham would fit in our tiny oven!”Natural Horse Health Principles

Horsemanship and Horse Care Practices

After working with horses for over a decade, I have seen many horse care and horsemanship habits that resemble the ham story. Even with my own horses, I would find myself asking why I was doing things a certain way and would often find no valid reason for many things I was taught to do over the years.

I was frustrated to learn that sometimes, I had put myself or even my horse’s safety or health at risk from silly habits and ideas that were taught to me by instructors, classes, judges, books, vets, etc.

So what is a horse owner to do? Learn it is ok to ask why… There are many horse care tips and tricks that should be respected, taught, and used on a regular basis with horses. Often when it is a truly necessary skill or practice it will have a practical reason behind it, and not a reason like the oven was too small or that is just what my trainer said, dad said, etc!

Our Mission to Share Natural Horse Health Principles

Did you know not too long ago I felt just like you…

My horses and those of my clients struggled with a long list of symptoms and health concerns. Medications, long lists of supplements and regular vet visits were normal. Although I was in the alternative therapy industry I saw little results at least that were consistent and tangible.

I was fed up and wondering what I was doing wrong. Where was the magic bullet hiding to help my horses live healthy, vibrant lives? The misery of these horses and my pocket book led me to what I know now. It is my mission to share with you what I have learned, help you on a path to a strong foundation and belief in what health is, and empower you with how to take action!
