April gives a simple recipe for a vegan fat source for our older horses, horses who may be missing teeth, or horses who just can seem to put on weight. She also shares how she fed Tiki for endurance rides when he had just minutes to fuel up for the next leg of the ride. And we finish up talking about keeping weight healthy, watching for hidden sugars, and insulin resistance.

Stumbling

When horses stumble, their owners usually think the problem is in the feet. In this episode, April talks about how the stumbling is more likely caused by poor alignment in the body. Bodywork can make it easier for the horse to pick up his feet and therefore not trip.

Summer time means itchy time for many horses. In this episode April talks about natural ways to control flies, as well as ways to deal with itching problems caused by allergies. 

Sluggish Horses

Your horse may appear sluggish to you, but more likely he wants to move, he just can’t. In this episode April talks about how when the horse’s first rib is out of line, they cannot properly move the shoulder.  many riders may believe the horses is being stubborn but once they do bodywork on them, they have a lighter, looser, more free-moving mount.
