Today’s topic is a very important one. Perhaps I’m preaching to the choir, but it’s a topic that I’m very passionate about…helping to empower horse caretakers to confidently step into the role of being their horse’s first line of defense in all things, including their health care. Before you jump to out of your seats…no, I’m not advocating taking on the role of your veterinarian or replacing your regular veterinary care. Just reiterating that YOU are your horse’s first line of defense…YOU will be the first one to see a problem coming before it turns into something big…YOU will be the one who makes the decision to call the vet, or the hoof care professional, etc.
In this video I present you with 3 simple steps that have helped me over the years with my own herd of horses, and it is my hope that it will help you step into that role as well, with confidence.
