HORSE OWNERS-LEARN HOW TO SAVE MONEY Preventing Training, Behavioral or lameness issues will save you money! Training issues and gait abnormalities are usually pain related.
Ask yourself: Does your horse exhibit bad conformation? Or bad posture from being in pain? Come find out.
Is your horse stiffer to one side, awkward or just not moving right? Cause: Neck and Ribs are out of alignment.
Is your horse having difficulty collecting, argumentative on the bit and heavy on the front end? Cause: Mis-alignment of Atlas and Axis in poll area from sitting down and pulling back when tied.
Is your horse unwilling to bend or change leads? High low syndrome in front hooves? Cause: Ribs and Withers are out-thus the shoulder cannot come thru freely as it should.
Is your horse unable to fully use its hind end-collect-or stop fast? Cause: Pelvis is not in perfect alignment-the hips not able to swing freely, over stresses the hocks and stifles making them sore-which can result in the horse needing stifle or hock injections.
QUICK FIXES THAT DONT REALLY WORK: Running Martingales or Tie-Downs ~Thicker Saddle Pads ~~Anti-Inflammatory Drugs or Joint Injections. Since these don't fix the "Cause" of the problem the issues just get worse.
Introducing April Battles of Holistic Horse Works. April starts by evaluating your horse from head to tail, including hoof balance, TMJ and dental issues as well as skeletal, muscular and health issues. Then she will proceed to work on all the problem areas that have been standing in the way of your horse being able to perform comfortably and correctly. She will help you understand the origins of any issues, and give you homework to continue the healing process.
Benefits: Healthier happier horse, fewer Vet bills, more alert, more willing equine partner with fluid movement that will be able to stay sound longer and saving money on Training bills.
Many Equine Body workers only use one Therapy-leaving the horse owner having to choose between Chiropractic, Massage, Acupressure or various other modalities out there. April has spent years studying many different modalities to blend them all for the benefit of the horse and owner which saves you time and money.
