What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?
The tip I would give horse owners is 1. have your saddle checked twice a year as ill fitting saddles are the main cause of poll, shoulder, back and hip muscle pain in horses. Listen to your horse such as does your horse try to buck you off when riding him/her? It is not a sign of "naughty behavior" but your horse's way of telling you that they are in pain.
What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!
With my compassionate nature, I truly care about your horse's health and well being. In the many years of riding horses and competing, I have witnessed too many times improper training, treatment, ill fitting saddles and bits which causes tremendous muscle strain, tightness and fatigue on your horse. No longer were the horse shows important to me - my compassion and concern for horses led me to becoming an equine massage therapist. I love to dig in and get to the bottom of the problem and try to fix it. Nothing fascinates me more than the equine anatomy and biomechanics and having a healthy and happy horse at his/her optimal performance level well into their senior years!
