What People Are Saying
Thank you Caroline for sharing all that you know and trust! I am new to horses and have been totally overwhelmed by all the advice, opinions and products from leading professionals and fellow horseman. Seems like everyone has an opinion and no one agrees! Not to mention so much of it just doesn’t make sense or feel right. After spending countless hours researching, reading and then finding you, I’ve trusted your guidance and couldn’t be happier with the results of your equine holistic horse care and wellness approach! ~ Amy, FL
Thank you Caroline! I can’t believe the difference the holistic nutrition series has made in my horses! Not only are their coats amazingly shiny and dappled, it’s completely changed their behavior around feeding. They were irritated and aggressive, worked up so much around feeding they made me and my kids feel unsafe. Since they’ve been on the new nutrition program they not only look great they are so calm. Thank you, thank you! ~ Sabrina, FL
“Wow!” I had no idea horses were that sensitive to people, environments and the feelings of other horses. It makes sense now that you’ve brought this to my attention. That’s why my mare is so over reactive at the new barn. She’s just not the same and I couldn’t figure out why. Nothing else had changed, just her environment. Since watching this series I’ve moved her to another barn where she is happier, quieter and more connected. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. You’ve not only gave me hope, you saved me countless of hours and so much money invested in the wrong remedies. ~ Theresa, PA

Why I Created This Series
Twenty-plus years ago, I used to have my horses shod. At the time I never questioned why my horse should be barefoot. I was told his hooves were too sensitive without shoes and that was that! It wasn’t until I had stepped out of the equine world and then re-emerged more than ten years later that I began questioning everything; and, with that process, I began educating myself by means of hands-on experience.
I understand the overwhelming feeling my clients have when they begin reading and learning about different perspectives and opinions. It can be a daunting and often emotionally exhausting experience educating yourself in the equine world. We equestrians can be very opinionated and it seems every horse owner is an expert about everything.
If you are a new horse owner, or one that is searching for a new or better way for you and your horse, this is what I recommend along your educational journey:
Ask questions. Ask as many “experts” or professionals as you can and look for a common thread. Meaning, it’s one thing if one “expert” claims it to be right or true and another if many are saying the same thing. I am not saying that it’s always wise to follow the masses – I sure haven’t. Listen, learn, and then decide once you have education and experience to back your decision.
I encourage you to keep probing, reading, and asking until the answer not only feels best, but it works best for you and your horse.
Follow the expert or professional that “walks the walk,” not just “talks the talk.” There are many “talkers” or intellectuals out there and very few “doers.” I want to follow the doer – the one who has learned through experience and has a reputation to back it.
