I will carry out procedures on your horse that will not just remove the sharp points from the buccal and lingual edges of your horses teeth. I will take away the pain and anguish caused by previous poor dentistry or neglect.
By balancing the teeth arcades we will ensure that your horse is more relaxed and comfortable in their mouth so that they can eat better and are able to work and perform better for you. I will always be calm and patient with your horse and treat them with the respect they deserve and should they have any emotional or behavioural problems we can help them and you to accept and overcome these difficulties by using Bach Flower Remedies. As an instructor and horse trainer, I will try and help you with schooling and riding problems, especially if you have any confidence issues.
I have passed the bitting analyst course with Neu Schule so I can also advise you on bitting issues and selection.
Your horse and its welfare are always going to be my first priority but I have a large client list and most of my appointments are booked 6-8 weeks in advance, but I do allow some time each week for emergencies so I hope you will not be kept waiting too long for an appointment. I will always do my best to fit in with your requirements early or late I will be there when you need me. The area I now cover is approximately 20 miles West of the A1 from the M62, East across to the coast and then North. I cover Yorkshire, County Durham and Northumberland. I travel to Scotland twice each year visiting the borders, East, Mid and West Lothian areas, so I spend a lot of time on the road visiting clients.
