INTEGRATIVE NATURAL HOOFCARE NHC101

 

 The NHC101 course is an intensive course for the serious owner, trainer, vet, farrier, manager who either wants to pursue a career in hoofcare or those who wish to take control of their horse's hooves and trimming on their own. Many horseowners live in remote areas that make farrier visits difficult and many have trouble finding farriers who will commit to traveling to these remote areas. Many owners have just one or two "backyard" horses that makes finding farrier/hoofcare difficult, at best.

The student who completes this course will have an in-depth understanding of preventative hoof care, a strong knowledge of the maintainance care needed for optimal functioning and health of the hooves and how to care for the horse in such a way that will promote ultimate hoof health.  (10 module)  

  Designed For:

 Those who wish to intensify their knowledge about the Equine Hoof. Student Ages 18 to Adult.

EQUINE NATURAL NUTRITION

 

  Description:   Getting Your Horse Healthy and Keeping Healthy

At Penzance we view our horses as our friends, our partners, as members of our family. We respect them; we listen to them; we interact with them. We've spent thousands of dollars on special feeds, hays, supplements and healthcare to ensure the very best we can afford for them.

Yet, sometimes that's not even enough. Sometimes its better to simply K.I.S.S. 
(Keep It Simple, Silly!) 

This online course will help you understand the horse's digestive system, its nutritional needs and how the horse naturally utilizes his foods. What does the natural horse eat? What should be the basis of his diet? What can we do to help strengthen the immune system, keep him free from overload of parasites, illnesses, colic and even maintaining optimal hoof health through his nutrition?

Through an understanding of equine natural nutrition  you will learn how to renew your horse's health and maintain it at optimal levels. Prevention is the best medicine.

You'll find that its really very simple.  

This online course from PENZANCE Equine Solutions is based on years of studies with some of the world's most reknown horsemen and equine behaviorists as well as from the horse, himself.

Over 50 years now, of practical, hands-on experience with horses, add to the wealth of information that is offered in NUTRI101. You will be most pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to design a diet that will meet all of your horse's nutritional needs and how incredibly rewarding it is to see the positive changes that YOU can make in your horse's life simply through feed and nutrition.

HOMEOPATHIC FIRST AID FOR THE HORSE :: Emergency Remedies

  Description:   What to do while waiting for the Veterinarian? 

Your horse is off his feed, acting lethargic, sweating more than usual and kicking periodically at his gut. You KNOW he's colicking. Colic can be a life threatening situation even at best. 

You've called your vet but what to do while waiting for him? 

Many times we can administer a Homeopathic Remedy that fits the horse's symptoms and at best, you'll find that within 20 to 40 mins or so, your horse is back to normal!  All you need to do is pay your vet for his farm call and a quick look-see. 

Your horse worked hard today and seems a bit 'tired' in muscle. You know that ARNICA MONTANA is the remedy of choice for muscle strain. So, you syringe some liquid remedy into your horse's mouth and within minutes it is evident that he's doing much better. 

YOU"VE had an 'unplanned dismount' from your exuberant buddy. You know there's nothing broken in your body but you're stiff and sore. Again, ARNICA MONTANA ... you dose yourself with a strong potency and within no time the aches and stiffness are almost gone. And best, bruises are held to a minimum and disappear within just a couple of days. No palette of 'pretty skin colors' as they dissipates and goes away. They're ... gone! 

This homestudy course takes you on a descriptve journey through 50 Emergency Homeopathic Remedies with all their keynotes and uses. From nosodes to treatments of various common ailments, illnesses and traumas that can and do happen to our horses, its good to know that we have a solid understanding of how to help our horse.  

The knowledge discovered in EMERHOM101 will not only help you to help your horse but is also cross-referenced to other loved family pets and members. Homeopathy's like that, you know. 

This course is comprised of 10 modules.

 Designed For:

Ages 18 through Adult with a basic understanding on general Homeopathy. 

 Objectives:

To give you a reference for the most common dis-eases on the farm and a security knowing that YOU *CAN* HELP YOUR OWN HORSE either in lieu of veterinary care or while waiting for your vet's arrival.
