WINTER SEMINAR SERIES
IS UNDER WAY
BALANCE AND POSTURAL ALIGNMENT
HUGE thank you to Christine Taylor for the
February seminar. It's amazing that we have
such accomplished, dedicated, knowledgeable
professionals in our area, so willing to share with
us what they know!
I think everyone left
with a greater understanding and in greater awe of
how complex and wonderfully made our horses lower
leg and hoof really are.
We look forward to
part two with Dr. Katz.
March 20th -
One of the wonderful
things about being involved with horses in the New
England area is that we have so many professional
horse people who dedicate their time, knowledge and
talents to the betterment of our horses and the
horse's owners. Christine Taylor and Steven
Katz are two such professionals.
Working together they
have been involved in continuing education necessary
to help our horses work to their optimum potential.
Which comes first? The
chicken or the egg? The unbalanced hoof or the
body discomfort? It can go both ways and it can turn
into a vicious cycle. Having both an equine body
worker and trimmer that can understand the hoof and
body and how they relate is imperative to the
horse’s overall wellbeing.
Horses that have
imbalanced hooves are holding their bodies in a
position that can be out of alignment. If a horse is
compensating due to lameness in the hoof and the
body is stiff and sore, they will not be able to
work to their fullest potential. Subconsciously, the
horse will try to align the body for optimum
potential. Alignment is the entire body, all
parts working together cohesively for optimum
efficiency. We can help horses find better alignment
for more efficiency as we support them with body
work and hoof care.
Come and enjoy this FREE
two part seminar series as we discover more about
50/50 hoof balance, mapping your horse's foot,
and how postural alignment will ultimately benefit
your horse and your ride.

EETS and see

available) or $34.99 new, and up
hard soled, heeled shoe keeps the foot in
place, so the foot stays safely in the
close fitting pants

Jeans are fine for riding, but some people
will develop chaffing from seams in
reins can cause blisters on hands, making it
uncomfortable to steer. Gloves help
keep a good grip on the reins!

chaps keep the stirrup leathers from
pinching the inside of your calf and keep
legs steady against the horses side.
At EETS, when you purchase any 4 of these
