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.
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!
