Mentoring Program with DVM Madalyn Ward

Homeopathy Mentoring Course - Beyond Arnica

Have you ever wondered why there are so many horse foods and supplements on the market? What about the “good old days” when all you had to feed a horse was oats and hay? How did horse nutrition get so complicated? Used to be colic and laminitis were about the only diseases we associated with diet but now you have a whole alphabet of nutrition related horse illnesses, PSSM, IR, HYPP, ECD, and OCD are just a few.

Some of our horse nutrition issues can be addressed by adding nutrients that are deficient. Also, careful balancing of minerals is important, but, in my 30 + years of working with horses these approaches alone have rarely brought horses the optimum health I was seeking. I have had much more success with using whole foods to create a feeding program that fits the individual horse. Considering the temperament of the horse and the energetics of the foods takes a different type of thinking.

Our formulated horse feeds have improved over the years and I wish I could say that horse nutrition is as easy as picking the best commercial ration and feeding it according the the instructions. It is very nice, though, to have so many quality feeds to choose from and I commend the feed companies for their research and efforts to help horses.

My goal for you with this six month horse nutrition mentoring course is help you think about nutrition differently. I want you to be able to look at a horse, take a history and design a feeding program that fits that horse. Not only will you be able to evaluate a ration for nutritional content but you will also have a deep level of understanding of how temperament and food energetics come into play. You will also appreciate the complexity of the horse digestive tract and how important healthy gut bacteria are to the horse.

These are my goals for you, but even more important is what you want to get out of this course. This is a mentoring relationship so I am here to guide you on your learning path, not force you down mine. You tell me what you want to learn and how you want me to teach you. Working through actual cases is one way for us to get on the same page but discussion of new research and opposing theories can also be valuable. I will offer a framework for study and you tell me how you want to learn and where you want to focus.
