Last year, I ran 2 offers for free assessments, one in March and one in October, and I was so surprised and pleased to see that people were super into it! It took me a little while to figure out why people liked it so much, and I think I get it now.
See, taking care of a horse isn’t always easy, and when it comes to the musculo-skeletal system and its dysfunctions, it becomes even worse for owners, weather they are professional or amateur. And for a good reason, it’s really hard for the untrained eye to know what’s going on inside a horse! So is this horse lazy or in pain? Or is this horse stubborn or stiff?
During the course of both offers, I got called by all sorts of owners, some wondering if there struggles during a ride could be due to pain, others looking for alternative methods of treating a lameness, and wondering if osteopathy could be the answer. And I’m not going to lie, it’s absolutely brilliant to be able to help owners understand their horse, and to give horses a voice they might not have had before!
So after a lot of thinking, I’ve decided to incorportate free assessments to my practice, for good. Every owner will have the possibility to book their horse in for a free assessment before booking a full session. I really believe that this will give people more confidence in getting their horse seen, as well as getting professional advice!
What happens during the assessment?
I will have a look and feel for each muscle, joint and organ in the body, and will need to see your horse walk and trot. After that we will discuss the reason for your call and how it might relate to your horse’s body! The assessment usual take about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the case.
How to book?
Just like you would do for a full session, all you need to do is contact me, either on Facebook, on my phone, or via email, it’s up to you. I will need certain information such as your full name, the name of your horse and the veterinary clinic he/she is registered with.
I’ll get you booked in as soon as possible, but please not that my ongoing clients will have priority, as I’m sure you understand 🙂
At the end of the 20 minutes, we will see to book your horse in for a full session if it’s necessary!
I think all the information are here, but please don’t hesitate to message me or comment below if you have a question.
As always, I wishes you and your horses the very best!
