Missy came to me in pretty bad shape. She had been neglected and left in a paddock along with several other horses for a long time, and wow, did she send me on a journey of discovery!

From Nutritional medicine and ulcers, extreme anxiety, laminitis and lameness, she certainly did throw up some challenges for me as a caring owner!
Already an equine health professional, I felt I was in a good position to help her, however her health issues prompted me to research and study many new equine wellness fields.
After years of study, hard work and dedication I achieved not only a healthy and calm state for her, but it also placed me in a much better position to help my clients with the many health issues their horses were facing, I am certainly grateful for this experience!
Missy was started immediately on a mineral balanced diet, along with ulcer treatment and herbal medicine. I treated her regularly with acupuncture and performed massage, groundwork and when she was stronger in her body, we started on ridden work. Progressing to low level endurance and reining training, we have enjoyed many years of companionship and activity together!

This is Breeze. Breeze was as in poor condition and had been neglected when I first picked him up. I focussed on improving his diet and he received daily minerals along with a small carrier feed and good quality grass and pasture.
Sandy came me in extremely bad shape. He had been paddocked in the same place as Missy for a long time and had not received the care he required to stay healthy. He took a little longer to respond than Missy as he was quite a bit older.
