Elton is a 14hh BWP. He started bucking and bolting in his lesson and the rider couldn't control him. This is a typical pain reaction when a horse has developed an osteopathic restriction. After just one session with Karen he was back jumping again a few days later.  


Facial Paralysis

Dixie suffered sudden facial paralysis affecting the left side of her face. The cause was idiopathic (unknown), although it is usually  viral or a result of a head trauma. These photos were taken after she had been discharged from the veterinary hospital, where she had spent a month being x-rayed and analysed. 

I used laser acupuncture, red light therapy, cranial sacral and mobilization techniques to aid her recovery. There were noticeable improvements during and following each session.

Rehabilitation from chronic lameness

Even the older horse with chronic lameness can be improved given the right therapy and exercise. Here are 2 photos 6 months apart.  In the first photo the horse is clearly uncomfortable with an inverted posture and small steps. In the second photo he is able to lower his head, use his topline and track up.
