„Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it"

EQUINE ELEMENTS

Experience and training has taught me - if you want to address any problem that a horse is demonstrating, within their current domesticated environment, you need to consider all the elements that are impacting him in his day to day life.  Ultimately the issue or problem a horse presents is normally a result of the culmination of all the environmental and psychological stresses he has to deal with.

For example: if a horse has pain and incorrect movement caused by a wrongly fitting saddle, it does not matter how good the allopathic medicine, alternative medicine module or bodywork module is – the success will only be short lived.  The successful long term outcome is always reliant on the cause of the pain being removed or addressed.  In this case it would require that the saddle is correctly refitted – only then will the chosen therapy or module have any chance of success.

Equine Elements cover some of these important areas that impact our horses in their current environment.  I have provided information on hooves, teeth, saddle fit, environment and nutrition, riding and other topics in order to create awareness of how these can impact our horses’ wellbeing.

When I work with any horse I take all of theses elements into consideration. 

Please take the time to read the information provided. As you may find many books, and many differing opinions, relating to the topics I touch on, the information should not be seen as complete.  This is just a small sample of what we have to think about when caring for our horses. This information is given to create awareness and critical thought in those who read it.  It is also given in a spirit of caring for the horses we own.
