From Linda Cowles, CA:
As a hoofcare provider, one of my frustrations is seeing discomfort in horses and not having all of the answers… some of the problems I struggle with are directly a result of hoof pathology, but often the root is elsewhere and manifests itself as a hoof pathology. If a horse isn’t tracking straight, favors one limb, seems tender or stumbles, it’s natural to look at feet for answers.
I watched Dr Joanna Robson’s “Recognizing The Horse In Pain” http://www.recognizingthehorseinpain.com/ DVD last night, and am very impressed with how much material she covers, clearly and crisply. I watched it once, then restarted it to watch it a second time…. I read her book cover to cover… Very, very good information. Great information!
Dr Joanna Robson’s created a one-of-a-kind video with a compelling message that explains what our horses are trying to communicate when they buck, snap, stumble, pin their ears. Dr Robson owns Inspiritus Equine in Napa CA. Joanna has worked on quite a few of my clients, incorporating traditional and holistic medicine, Chinese medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture and saddle fitting. We’ve not met personally, but we’ve talked, my clients have raved about her, and I’ve seen remarkable changes in the horses she’s worked on.
It’s a DVD I’ll watch repeatedly and recommend highly.
Joanna covers movement analysis, assessing saddle fit and construction, clearly describes the use of chiropractic & acupuncture, thermography and much more. Some of most fascinating sections involved Joanna using an equine skeleton to show how adjustments are done, and using painted horses to show how conformation and movement have to be considered when fitting English and western saddles…
Good material. Thanks, Joanna!
