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 all around Appaloosa named Cooter, was in a pretty serious wreck. There was nothing simple about his injuries or the diagnoses of what the damage had done or would continue to do to him.
For the last three years Cooter has been intermittently lame. Not three legged, head bobbing lame……….. Lock up and refuse to move forward lame. I do not know what I would do without the help of Dr. Christine. She is very helpful in seeing the subtle issues of lameness and to diagnose if joint injections or chiropractic is in order. Both Christine and Carla been helpful with referrals and suggestions. Their support has allowed me the gift of riding this fantastic athlete that otherwise would have been in enormous pain. Keeping Cooter pain free and in good health is my main goal. I cannot thank Dr Christine and Carla enough for all their help and support.
