Whole Horse Health Chat
My Whole Horse Health Chat https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/wholehorsehealth/ offers an email forum where we discuss a wide variety of equine wellness, tack, training and management topics, and I’m an active part of the group… many experts chime in, it’s a great group, and you are welcome to join. Its free and informative!
Some situations are better assessed one-on-one, either on-line, over the phone or face to face, so I offer Whole Horse Consultations. These Consultations cover my entire area of expertise (business development, training, hoof care, hoof health, booting, finding appropriate feeds and supplements for your situation, saddle and tack fitting, stabling implementation & assessment).
My service helps you identify your needs as well as helping you determine what other expertise you need, and include helping you find the expert.
If you are purchasing a new horse, need to determine which trainer can give you or your horse specific help, are considering barefoot, want to write a book, need to revitalize on organization or equine business, need a vet, dentist or other equine specialist for a specific problem or simply are not sure what you need, I may be able to help. I would love to try!
