has a wonderful way in helping horses get comfortable.
We’ve watched visibly dramatic changes take place in the shape of a
horse's back/neck, a horse stops stumbling, changes in the whole look in a
horse’s face as he/she is free of pain, absence of defensiveness with farriers,
willingness to move freely. She helps dogs also.
We became convinced in the value of chiropractic care for our horses
after Dixie was cast in a tie line overnight. The rope around her neck was
wrapped around her hind foot putting her in a real bind. Despite
veterinary care and two weeks time, she was unable to raise her head any
higher than 18-24 inches off the ground. We feared cervical damage. Our
friend called in Orville Matheson a chiropractor in the central valley
area where she was being cared for. After having her neck joints adjusted one by one from her withers to her head, Dixie raised her head to a
normal level, enjoyed a good roll which she’d been unable to do without
the balance of her head and neck, and looked over the corral fence.
Three categories of horses seem to benefit from chiropractic care:
1) a maintenance
adjustment for the effects of us riding on horse’s backs, helps prevent
becoming horse #2 or #3,
2) adjustment of an area like neck/back/hip/rib
that is causing the horse to be physically effected in their performance
(like Kat hurting with cinching, or a horse not able to move as well right
3) a major adjustment that brings tears to my eyes (my emotions run over), a noticeable
change in the back shape that stops a horse’s tripping, a horse that never
stood still standing quietly, fixing Prima’s hip so she could pack a load
in the Sierras, saving Lily from being "unsafe to ride".
Horses carry us on their backs which were not designed
for the job. They tweak themselves one way or another, a slip, a fall,
getting cast. The birthing process can leave a body out of sorts for years. If Gesa checks your
horse and there is no problem to be corrected, there is no charge.
