Why Holistic Horse Works and why Equine Holistic Therapy?
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, and living conditions, as well as regular routine and activity.
April has used, endorsed and been a distributor for treeless saddles for over thirteen years and has logged over 42,000 miles in them! 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 sees in her equine partners in equine holistic therapy may be related to a build-up of toxins in their bodies, mainly the Thimerosal and other by-products currently in today’s vaccines, as well as chemical wormers. April has found a product that has worked wonders–not just in her horses, but also in herself!
It is called Natural Cellular Defense, a supplement that when ingested into the body, toxic elements are naturally drawn to it. The toxins, which can keep the body from functioning properly are then effectively flushed from the body allowing it to heal and maximize its performance. Once the body is detoxed of heavy metals and chemicals then the true nutrients can nourish the cells and replenish the body. Please check out this link for nutritional supplements for horses, humans, dogs and other companion animals.
When April is asked what she uses on her personal horses, she sends horse owners to the professional websites so they can do their own research.

What is causing Sidebone?

Sidebone has been found in horses as early as the age of 3 years old, it occurs when the body has not been loading the hoof correctly. On my YouTube channel you will see that I used Wound Balm sweats to decrease sidebone calcifications in my two horses.
Ever heard of rib/wither lift?
