Bridging Conventional & Natural Medicine for Horse Owners

Hi, I'm Maike

I'm a passionate horse owner and Veterinarian. I spend my time searching for better ways to keep horses happy and healthy. I love what modern medicine has to offer and the many lives it saves. And I respect and acknowledge the wisdom captured by natural based therapies.  

Through searching for answers for my animals over the years, I discovered the powerful synergy available today in putting to use 'the best of both worlds' - modern science and natural complementary therapies, for a truly holistic approach to health and healing for our horses.  

Working as a horse vet made me realise that YOU, as a horse owner, could be empowered by having more knowledge and confidence in what to do when your horse is sick or injured. That's how I became passionate about teaching First Aid to Horse Owners. There are soooo many things you can add to your 'toolbox' to help your Horse!

I've taught horse owners about equine first aid and horse health for over 10 years in my live workshops. 

Lots of people have asked me to make my information more widely available. To give you information in a way that is: 

  • Easy to understand and follow.
  • Practical to apply.
  • Useful for everyday stuff that happens to horses.

It's really important to know when you need to call your vet and what you can do yourself to help your horse. It starts with understanding the basic signs of health and how to recognise them.  

Since learning about and implementing natural therapies such as Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM), acupressure, herbal medicine, homeopathy and more, I have discovered many ways that you can use these in addition to conventional treatments to help your horse, both in emergencies and to help with long-term health conditions. 

I'm passionate about sharing this information to help you and your horse. I'm constantly learning and seeking information from experts to share with you.
