Assessing your Horse’s Area of Concern and Promoting Individual Horse Health-
Much of the traditional horse health system, as well as the nutrition and care, tend to categorize and group horses, symptoms, and other factors into a cookie-cutter regimen. Our goal is to teach and show a better way of caring for your horse that is more individualized and specialized for your horse’s specific needs.
The more horses I work with the more this theory seems to ring true. Each horse appears to have what I like to call an area of concern. This is an organ or system that tends to be at risk more than the others. It is different and specific to each horse. Although there are people who have categorized it by breed or the horse’s personality, I prefer to look at the horse purely as an individual.
Equine Wellness History – Observe and Take Note-
To give an example, if your horse seems susceptible or prone to getting heaves when he/she is stressed. Another example is prone to hives or colic. Tracking and being aware to the horse’s tendencies can help you more effectively prepare and care for their individual needs. Take a moment and really make a timeline of your horse’s health. This can help you determine what areas of concern he/she has.
Basics of Essential Oil Selection-
Once you have established what you believe are your horse’s areas of concern, you can select essential oils based on the horse’s individual needs. Based upon the commonality or re-occurrence you can decide if the horse could benefit from continuous support or selective support of that area as the need arises.
