Della in stableSarah was becoming increasingly concerned by her horse’s behaviour when she was referred to me. Sarah explains “Della got stuck in a bog in the New Forest last year and pulled the muscles in her hindquarters and back. The vet checked her over and advised she was fine. Since then her behaviour has deterioated to the point that she was bordering on dangerous”.

Sarah found it difficult to relax when she rode Della due to her unpredictable behaviour. Even Della’s farrier was putting himself at risk trying to shoe her. Sarah remarks, “The last time she was shod as soon as he (Farrier) went to lift her hind leg she took out the farrier, knocked his box over and trod on his rasp snapping it!!

Sarah reports, “After her first Bowen treatment she has really changed. She is calm to ride and stood still to be shod, which is unheard of”. Since her first session 6 months ago, Della has remained calm when ridden, more relaxed in hand and more co-operative with her farrier. Della benefits from having monthly maintanence sessions to help keep her supple and manage her behaviour. Happy Horse-Happy Rider!

    Many thanks Mariette for your feedback. It has been an absolute privilege to put these case studies together and to be able to continue and learn so much from our great teachers-the horses themselves. X
