Do you feel like you have lost the horse you once knew?

I have been there and understand that feeling. I can’t believe that is was 6 years ago my vet recommended that I euthanize my mare. All the time and money spent on endless tests and supplements got me nowhere.

What will make you cringe, is the reality that…  Horses get put down every day with solvable problems. I didn’t believe it until I experienced this for myself.

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

Fast forward to now, Pokey is healthy and thriving. It pains me to think what could have been had I listened and not found her solution.

Although, it is great that I found a way to help my mare come back to health… looking back there were tell tale signs that I missed that might have prevented her suffering!

Not all horses are at this point, but they are trying to communicate that dangerous digestive problems are present that could lead to major concerns. These signs are being shrugged off by vets and equine professionals…

That is why I designed 10 Telltale Signs That Your Horse is Suffering from Dangerous Digestive Problems, this is a free guide to help ensure you hear, what your horse might be trying to tell you.

Do You Respond or React To Horse Health Concerns?

Whether You Respond Or React… Will Impact Your Horse's Health

We have all been there where a sudden illness or problem arises with our horse and an internal panic ensues… but did you know that your stress, worry, and anxiety has the potential to make your horse's health concerns worse?

On top of that the market is full of tactics that take advantage of your concern, promising solutions with their products that often mask, treat, or suppress the problems your horse has…

Driving them deeper into the body and setting your horse up for additional, more severe health problems! Soon you feel lost not sure where to turn or how your horse got here in the first place.

Somehow, the experts and marketers get you to take comfort in the fact that it is “normal” for your horse to be experiencing health concerns as the trends reveal there are more horses that are sick or diagnosed with health concern, then those who remain healthy and sound.

You may be wondering then… What am I to do??

You must begin with YOU! Your mindset, knowledge, belief, and confidence in caring for your horse is something completely within your power.

An empowered horse owner stands prepared and ready should health challenges arise for their horse, but the best part is that they also have the skills and tools necessary to reduce their horse's risk of many of the problems a majority of horses are facing.

The worst place you can be in regards to your horse's health is in your head. One of the best questions you can ask yourself is, are you all in? Are you truly committed to doing what it takes to get the result and desired outcome you want for your horse?

You will face opposition.

People will tell you that you're wrong, crazy, and some may even call you ignorant.

There will be times it seems like it isn't working, it might look like it is getting worse, and it will take investment of both time and money…

My mentor often makes the statement that if you argue for your limitations you get to keep them. Are you arguing for either your personal limitations or maybe what you perceive to be your horse's limitations?

You are your horse's headlights and they can only see and make it as far as you are willing to go. That means that you must let go not only of the limiting beliefs that you have, but those that have been “given” to you be your friends, vet, farrier, trainer, etc.

Draw a line in the sand of what you are determined to achieve for your horse, regardless of if you know how to get there or not! For more suggestions and tips on how to respond vs react check out the audio below.

You Have To Decide & Then You MUST Take Action

With my mare Pokey I had 3 different opinions with “tests” to back why each was right and the others were wrong…

Although each professional had a different label of what Pokey suffered from, there was a shared consensus of euthanasia as the only option. I was disheartened, confused, and not sure what to do.

I decided that I would not accept this fate for Pokey and set out to change and improve her health with no earthly idea how I would do it. All my mentors and peers thought I had lost my mind and nothing good would come from my false sense of hope and determination…

If you know our story… that was back in 2001 and she is still here with me today. I make it my mission to have the tools and information available to those open and looking for a better way to care for their horses.

One of the very first steps is to spot the overlooked signs of health concern, that your horse could be sharing with you right now… My mare struggled with #3 on the list for many years and I was told it was a behavior and training issue. I created a free pdf guide that shares 10 Tell Tale Signs Your Horse May Be Suffering From Dangerous Digestive Problems.

In this day and age supporting the body to detox is very important. There are different ways in which you can detox your horse. Some people like to more aggressively detox the body and choose to utilize specific detox systems and programs….

The tips shared in this post are meant to guide you through a more moderate and lifestyle approach. With the amount of toxins our horses are combating it seems more advantageous to maintain a balanced and continual detox approach.

  1. Clean your horse's nutrition of synthetics and chemicals- many feeds on the market today actually contain the very ingredients in which you are looking to cleanse from your horse's system…
  2. Support the digestive system with prebiotics, probiotics, and digestive enzymes- if the digestive system fails to deliver the nutrition your horse's bodies needs, the body will not have the fuel it necessary to properly cleanse. Resulting in toxic build up…
  3. Filter water and ensure appropriate hydration- Utilize options like a Horse Hydrator to filter out chemicals within your water that raise the risk of health concern.
  4. Stop applying topical products that are synthetic laden and based- Feeds and supplements are not the only ingredient lists that you need to review and be aware of. Switch your fly sprays, liniment, shampoos, etc. to more organic natural choices.
  5. Utilize herbs like milk thistle, dandelion root, or dandelion leaf to support cleansing- Always be sure to review the tips above and lifestyle of the horse, adjusting and reducing the toxins where you can prior to utilizing natural remedies.

Continued toxic overload after implementing these tips is a sign of imbalance at the cell level. Check out Where does your horse's health begin? for more information on cell health.
