Horse with muscle injury recovers quickly

A bay Welsh Cob broodmare. 11 years old.

Presentation

Tiffany had a muscle injury in her front left leg sustained when running in the paddock. She was unable to put weight on the leg, was using three legs to move around, and was in significant pain. Tiffany was in foal so it was imperative that the problem be resolved. 

Care

Equine Touch was given three days in a row, in conjunction with homeopathic remedies. Tiffany improved rapidly, and by the fourth day was galloping around the paddock bucking and kicking in play. It was plain to see she had made an excellent recovery in just three days – an outstanding and surprising result after such a significant injury.

Newborn Foal with contracted tendons

Presentation 

This foal was born with badly contracted tendons in both front and rear legs. She was unable to stand without assistance when born and once up, her rear feet collapsed forwards when she walked.

Care

The foal was given homeopathic Arnica 6C twice a day, and five milligrams of cod liver oil by mouth once daily.  This condition is caused by a lack of vitamin A & D in the mare’s diet, so she too was fed extra cod liver oil. The foal improved by the second day and presented normally by the third. 

NOTE: Since we have been using Belinda’s Premium WS Loose lick we no longer have this problem in our foals.


“It’s amazing how fast Belinda’s natural remedies helped this condition, along with correct feeding and vitamins and minerals. Since using Belinda’s Custom Loose Lick this we have had healthy foals and no more contracted tendons. Belinda can help you have happy healthy horses too.”

Billy, horse with Muscle issues

Presentation 

This gelding had poor circulation and muscle tone. He had sacroiliac and nerve pain in his back, causing him to buck when ridden. His coat was also dull and flat.

Care

The day after Billy’s Equine Touch session, the client sent me a photo, as she was so impressed with the change. Equine Touch increased circulation and released the traumatised muscles allowing Billy’s rump to recover overnight. The dramatic improvement continued over two further Equine Touch sessions until Billy was a different horse, and had stopped bucking entirely.

Princess could not pick up her legs

Grey Appaloosa mare. 28 years old and retired.

Presentation

Princess was unable to pick up either of her front feet for cleaning and trimming and could not put weight on her back legs. Her posture looked uncomfortable and she misbehaved due to pain. He body was compensating for many issues going on and she was in need of Equine Touch body work.

Care 

After just one session of the Equine Touch, Princess was able to pick up her front feet and appeared pain free. After the session, she galloped off into the paddock bucking and kicking like a 2 year old – vastly different from her usual sedate walk. After the second Equine Touch Session Princess’s posture had improved and she was much easier to handle. Happier horse and she can live a comfortable life.
