How Can We Help Our Equines?
Muscles, ligaments, fascia, and other structures that insert on the bones.
Organs which are activated by the activity of smooth muscle fibers, cardiac muscle fibers, and glands.
Membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, as well as the attached bones.
Growing up on a dairy farm, my love for animals was always present, but I inherited my passion for horses from my grandpa. My grandparents started my love for horses by putting me in riding lessons when I was six years old. I was instantly hooked! As such, my grandpa bought me my first horse when I was 10. Growing up, I participated in 4-H and moved on to competing on the local open show circuit as a young adult.

What is Equine Osteopathy?
Osteopathic medicine is based on the idea that all body systems are interconnected and influence each other. It’s a treatment method that has existed for more than 100 years.
Equine Osteopathy has been adapted from human osteopathic principles modified to the anatomy and physiology of the horse.
In the case of obstruction on any level, vital force becomes weak, creating decreased resistance to injury and disease. Through hands-on manual manipulation, mobility can be restored! Allowing the body the opportunity to heal itself and stay in balance.
Structure dictates function and function dictates structure. Over-time any loss of mobility can cause structural damage in the joint.
We can get so caught up in the anatomy of the body and overlook the mind-body-spirit integration. Our horses go through stresses that affect their bodies on many different levels.
