In this 9-week online program, you will learn how to develop a system to monitor your horse’s soundness and get him safely fit for your sport without feeling uncertain about the process.
You are dreaming of having a good competition season with your horse. You’ve spent time thinking about goals, mapping out your plan, and organizing your calendar so you have time to properly train. You think this might be a really good year!
Despite your optimism, you find yourself praying your horse stays sound and feels good. Some rides are great, and some are challenging. You wonder if the challenging days are due to discomfort? You hope not, but aren’t quite sure how to decide. It would be so devastating if your horse went lame! Your entire season could be affected.
I know exactly how you feel, my friend.
The truth is, when you have a performance horse, it’s not “if” your horse will have a soundness issue, but rather “when” and “how bad” the issue will be.
When I treat horses, I often have conversations with riders about best practices for keeping their horse sound. I feel like I am teaching these concepts in pieces and parts, and there just isn’t time in our treatment sessions to pull it all together.
That is why I developed The Soundness System course. I want to help you develop a therapeutic eye and learn how to catch issues early. I also want you to know how to design an effective strength and conditioning program that can drastically cut your horse’s injury risk, since many issues are due to overtraining, repetition, and fatigue.
The Soundness System launches on April 24th, and goes on sale April 10th.
