In early September 2020, my horse slipped and fell on wet arena footing and presented lame. After exhausting all other methods of treatment, and still no results, I received a recommendation to try chiropractic care, enter Dr. Woodford.

Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with a lot of great horses and some fantastic equine support staff. After all these years, I consider most show horses pretty easy to manage and keep in the condition physically and mentally to perform their best. That is, until the summer of 2013. My […]
