A Healthy Horse the Natural Way:
The Horse Owner's Guide to Using Herbs, Massage, Homeopathy and Other Natural Therapies

Catherine Bird

Just as more and more people are embracing a more natural approach to their health and wellbeing, many horse owners are turning to ways they can use natural therapies with their horses. A Healthy Horse the Natural Way is the complete complementary approach to horse health, covering: herbs, massage, aromatherapy, homeopath, Bach flower remedies, biochemic tissue salts, vibrational healing/energy fields and perhaps, most importantly, how and when to use a combination of these therapies and when to use them in conjunction with veterinary treatment. This practical handbook will add new dimensions to your horse's health and sense of well-being, and help you develop an increasingly harmonious relationship with your horse. (7 x 9 1/4, 240 pages, b&w photos, illustrations) Catherine Bird has led the development of equine natural therapies in Australia and is in worldwide demand as a practitioner, lecturer, and teacher. Her extensive experience is founded on many years of working with dressage, jumping, eventing, endurance, pony club, and international-level competition horses, old companion horses, and thoroughbred horses from newborn foals to all stages of track racing, mounted police horses, and balloted mounts at the 2000 Paralympic games. She is a regular contributor to magazines and lives in Australia.
