This event is in three parts:
1. Holistic Hoof Care Lecture by Beccy Smith - Holistic Equine Podiatrist, Therapist and Consultant
Lameness issues caused by poor hoof health are very common and seem to be on the increase. Recognition of early signs of loss of homeostasis can prevent the onset of more serious hoof disorders and prevention is always better than cure!
In this talk we will help you recognise a healthy hoof and foot and discuss a number of methods used to support horses hoof health holistically, which in turn help return health and performance in horses and prevent problems from developing in the first instance.
• Signs of imbalance and asymmetry in the horse /hoof
• Holistic Hoof care Applied Equine Podiatry
• Holistic Nutrition and responsible management for health
• SCENAR therapy and promoting correct posture/movement
This talk will help you:
- Identify what is a healthy (and unhealthy) hoof
- Assess the horse for signs of imbalance
- promote health and performance in your own horse
2. Lecture/demo with Sandra Davies - Animal Communication and Bodywork
We all love our horses and want to have the best partnership with them, being human we are evolving and can explore and learn new ways of being with our horses.
Do you get the sense that your horse is wanting to tell you something ? Wanting you to understand something ?
Do you wonder ways the world is seen from your horses viewpoint ? What is important to them ?
Does my horse like/dislike being touched ? Why ?
Are any behaviour problems a result of pain ? Is it not just physical pain but memory and expectation of pain ?
Sometimes it can be difficult to see what is happening due to our closeness to them.
How many ways does what we do affect them both both in life enhancing or life negating ways?
These are some of the questions and dilemmas that can be answered by animal communication and bodywork. This lecture/demo will answer 3 questions:
- Animal communication and bodywork - what are they ?
- Why are they essential for every horse ?
- Can I learn techniques to help my horse ?
What is animal communication ?
Animal communication comes from closing the left brain logic side of our brain and opening more into our right brain hemisphere, feeling emotions. Using the deeper capacity of all our senses to receive information. And yes! Sandra believes we can all do this.
Horses are emotional creatures like us - what emotions are strongly present and why ?
Do our emotions affect our horses ?
What is Bodywork ?
Bodywork can be physical and energetic. There are many modalities which can help in many ways.
Often horses (and people!) have had pain and trauma and do not feel safe or connected in their bodies. Their proprioceptive senses of body awareness can be 'offline'.
Bodywork can help them feel better, releasing tension, allowing flow and relaxation which is vital for any learning to happen.
Come and learn some releasing techniques which you can use for your horse.

Sandra Davies Animal Communicator, Bodyworker and Teacher
My equine journey began with being a 'horse mad' child leading to qualifying with the BHS. This opened doors for me working in a variety of centers and privately both in the UK and abroad over 10 years. I was fortunate enough to get my own competition yard in 1995 with many different horses and clients. I realized I was becoming more interested in complementary therapies which lead to qualifications in massage, cranio-sacral therapy and ReikI in 2000. Through this I began sensing more from the horses and took courses with a number of animal communicators and have offered this to clients since 2008. This has expanded into greater interest animal and human psychology and inter-relations. This lead to furthering my teaching qualification as an FEI adult teacher.
I work intuitively being drawn with resonance to what is arising in the 'field' - that is the energy of the horse and owner currently, yet not excluding any other factors that may around and influencing. My intention is to be aware of as much as I am capable of, noticing levels - mind, body and soul/spirit connections or/and disconnections, conscious awareness, unconscious factors, mirroring. I love working with the body sensing energetic status and the awareness of this. I find it such a humbling privilege to be able to work with people and animals to hear their stories and offer what I have, the intention to bring greater understandings between species, humans and animals and body awareness, empowering each and enhancing relationships.
