The main purpose of this book is to show how we can all learn to help and heal our horses. The aim is to bring healing back to where healing belongs "with everybody." Understanding behaviour and communicationis important as they are expressions of energy and are crucial to learning to understand others. In this book, you will discover natural, gentle, and supportive therapies that work in harmony with the healing system to help restore and maintain health. Healing will occur when we work with, not against, the forces of nature that exist within the body. Animals are our teachers and very often they lead us to on a path of discovery that we would not have embarked on without them in our lives. This book will help our descendants and their horses towards a better understanding and a greater mutual respect between the species. Take responsibility for your horse's health and wellbeing. You will find that they not only feel and look better; they will achieve much more and avoid disease and ailments caused by lifestyle and bad diets. Give your horses the happy, healthy, and vibrant lives they deserve Topics covered include: Herbs Essential Oils Essences Tissue Salts Materia Medica"
An informed explanation of the traditional use of plants and herbs, from those that may be oversown into pasture to those used as feed supplements and medicine.

The use of herbs and other plant material in the horse's diet has grown in popularity, largely because of perceived inadequacies in modern compound-feeds, pastures and forage, but many horse feeds and feed additives containing herbs carry no statement of their exact content or formulations. Also, they are often put together by people with either no proper training or inappropriate qualifications, using information gleaned from human herbals. Aimed at horse-owners and those who keep and care for horses in every sphere of equestrian activity, this book provides information on the traditional use of a wide spectrum of herbs and other plant material. This material ranges from plants which may be oversown into pastures, to others which may be used regularly as feed supplements or used as medicines in skilled hands.

"Herbal Horsekeeping" introduces the reader to the ins-and-outs of one of the oldest and most effective medical methods.

In the past, when horses roamed free, they instinctively maintained their health by seeking out and consuming a variety of grasses, grains, herbs, and mineral-salt deposits at specific times of the year or for specific physical needs. The lives of our modern horses are very different - they are often confined, their exercise usually consists of structured workouts for specific sports, and they are fed processed food and medicated with pharmaceutical chemicals. In an effort to live healthier, more natural lives, many people are returning to more traditional health-care methods for themselves, and now, we can do our horses the same favour. "Herbal Horsekeeping" introduces the reader to the ins-and-outs of one of the oldest and most effective medical methods. Topics covered include: understanding, growing, and preparing herbs; herbs for your horse's general health, and for the performance and breeding horse; and treatments for specific conditions and basic recipes. Included is a list of specific herbs, their identifying characteristics, and their individual actions.
