Fit for a Queenie is named after my sadly departed elderly mare, Queenie. She started me on a journey to holistic health care for horses, which has taken me through two diplomas in Applied Zoopharmacognosy and onto a diploma in Equine Podiatry.
I currently have three barefoot horses. One of my traditional cobs is learning to pull so that he can do odd jobs around the farm where he lives, the other cob is just starting his job as a riding horse. I plan to do long distance riding with him. The Arab is just being brought back into work after a long time off due to sarcoid issues.
The horse's ability to heal itself is a constant source of amazement to me. As an Equine Podiatrist (EP), I am interested in utilising these natural healing mechanisms to help your horse produce the best hoof it can. My background in Applied Zoopharmacognosy makes me very keen to use the gentlest most natural products I can, when supplementation and hoof 'jollop' is needed.
