Educational Speaking Engagements

My farm, Natures Rehab, is home to my own horses as well as home to a rehab facility I built to handle the special needs of horses undergoing short and long-term rehab.

Horses are meant to move, to graze and cover ground so rehab can be a critical time with many stresses both physical and emotional. When all the parts of the horse are taken into consideration and their body, emotions and mind are taken into account you have true holistic healing taking place.

At my facility I provide a customized approach for every horse that walks in the door. I work in partnership with your vet, ferrier and other professionals to find the right course of therapies and at my facility I can often provide services that are not easily done at a boarding facility or at home.

For horses in need of full stall rest I have a specially designed stall with a closed cell foam flooring that offers even, cushioned support and a clean surface for stall rest. Horses in this stall also enjoy a view of the outside and are never far from horses grazing outside.

Other features include an indoor wash rack, and an indoor arena, paddock areas as well as pasture are available for horses that can move around freely. For those horses that cannot graze freely, I provide daily hand walking as appropriate. and for those that need individual turnout that can also be accommodated.

More than a place for Equine Rehab

As an avid horse rider I enjoy offering clinics and educational opportunities for riders of all disciplines and skill levels. Throughout the year I invite you to keep up with Natures Rehab on our Facebook page where we aim to provide education about our therapies, horses, dogs, and of course fun photos and videos and some things that are just plain fun!
