April has an amazing insight and ability to find the energetic blocks in your horse which can help your horse come back to comfort and balance.
How does this help your horse? She teaches all this in her 3 day class, to you. Unable to make it to one of her classes? Try her home study DVD.
|Why do well trained horses buck? Because they are in pain somewhere says most professional trainers. Mysterious lameness? It all starts somewhere-signs we missed, pinning ears, swish of a tail, unwilling to switch leads, girthy, tripping, or cross firing at the canter.
April has helped many horse owners help their own horses, see her free yoga for horse stretching video. Please watch this video, below, on how it is all connected…

When the first rib is out, it does not not allow the shoulder to move correctly as described by most horse chiropractors.
On this skeleton you will see under the horses’ right shoulder (left side in pic) there is no gap.
First rib was out on the right side, this can make taking the right lead uncomfortable. As well as making the left front leg work twice as hard, as you will notice by the left hoof, which has grown larger taking most of the weight of the horse. This can have stressed left tendon and suspensory. Also stress would have been thrown back to inside left hock as horses work a diagonal and right stifle-same side as the rib out. Ask any professional trainer how the horse uses their body when in work.
When horses are unwilling to take a certain lead this has been the major cause, not that they are lazy, or don’t want to, or have a weaker side.
Soft passive stretching can help the rib issue and comfort and ease returns to the horse. Yoga is good for us as well. Along with a willingness to do what we ask of them.

Why Holistic HorseWorks?
April has discovered that many things can contribute to a horse’s emotional, physical and mental well-being or distress. In fact, generally, training and behavior “problems” are pain related.
Many things that contribute to a horse’s comfort or lack thereof include, but are not limited to, saddle fit, diet, living conditions, as well as regular routine and activity.
April has used, endorsed and been a distributor of treeless saddles for over thirteen years and 42,000 miles! She recently sold her treeless saddle business to devote more time to helping horse owners help their horses. You can view saddles here as she recommends allowing the horses back to move more freely, without the restriction of a solid tree. Please click here to view treeless saddles.
Additionally, April has discovered that some of the answers to the changes she see’s in her equine partners may be related to a build up of toxins in their bodies, mainly the Thimerosal and other by products currently in today’s vaccinations as well as chemical wormers. April has found a product that has worked wonders–not just in her horses, but also in herself! Natural Cellular Defense is a supplement that goes into the body and toxic elements are naturally attracted to it so it effectively flushes the body of toxins that can keep the body from operating, healing, feeling its best. Once the body is detoxed of heavy metals and chemicals that block the receptor sites then the true nutrition can get in to feed the cells, replenish the body. Please check out this link for nutritional supplements for horses, humans, dogs etc
When April is asked what she uses on her personal horses she send horse owners to the professional websites so they can do thier own personal research.

What is causing Sidebone?

Side bone has been found in horses as early as the age of 3, when the body has not been loading the hoof correctly. On my you tube channel you will see that I used wound balm sweats to decrease sidebone calcifications in my 2 horses.
Ever heard of rib/wither lift?
