About Our Courses

Our proactive, integrative approach to hoof care is unique and encompasses the entire horse, what influences their well-being and influence of the environment. We explore the incredible relationship between the horse and its environment and the influence we have on their resilience and longevity, their soundness and happiness.

 

This approach is reflected in the fresh and unique courses offered and is enhanced by the 29 years of training and experience Beccy has working in the industry as an Equine Body Worker, saddle fitter, a Rehabilitation Centre owner/manager, a riding instructor and Holistic Equine Podiatrist. Beccy also helps people and incorporates Meditation with Horses, Equine Facilitated Learning and HeartMath coaching and with the help from the herd at Holistic Reflections CIC.

Wellness In Horses

Perfect for all horse owners and carers as well as equine professionals seeking CPD and furthering their knowledge of what is considered wellness in horses.

Recognising wellness in horses is critical to their well-being, soundness, longevity and resilience. A sound horse = a happy owner! Horses that are not well are out of balance and this state can lead to dis-ease, and pathology. Early recognition of loss of wellness and a proactive holistic horse care approach can prevent lameness and even premature death as well as save much pain on behalf of the horse and the owner and often their family too.

In this course we will discuss

  • wellness and what this means

  • the influence of the environment on wellness

  • how to recognise wellness

  • how to recognise dis-ease

  • how to promote wellness

  • practical advice, videos, photos

  • practical advice for proactive horse care

 

Course attendees will be given the opportunity to join monthly zoom community calls to ask Beccy any questions which arise 

This course is set to launch 1st September 2022.

Anyone signing up for our newsletter BEFORE the end of August 2022 will receive a 50% off discount for purchase of this course when it launches!

This online course can be completed in your own time and access is freely available once purchased. This course is free to all VIP members upon joining, otherwise it is £88.

PRO-Active Integrative Hoof Care - Trimming the Barefoot Horse 

Designed for conscientious and diligent horse owners and carers of barefoot or shoeless horses as well as equine professionals (farriers, trimmers and equine podiatrists in particular) seeking CPD and enhancing their knowledge of trimming to maintain or create healthy hoof and posture ideals. 

We wholeheartedly recommend that suitably qualified and experienced hoof care professionals are employed to carry out trimming as a positive intervention to maintain or create healthy ideals. However, we also recognise this isn’t always possible and while this online course is not designed to replace professional assistance, it may ultimately help horse carers help their horses where professional assistance simply isn’t available or accessible, or simply appreciate more the art of trimming and integrative equine podiatry. Please also read our disclaimer.
