Changed my life, and my horses lives!!!!

I met Dr Audrey DeClue over 5 yrs ago through a very good friend, and a mutual veterinarian Dr Kathy Senio. They have changed my life and horses lives. I will never look at a horse in the same way again. I have ridden Dressage and trained 6 horses from 3yrs old to FEI , over the last 30 yrs... and thanks to Dr DeClue and Dr Senio, I have been educated and my eyes are wide open to “Body Lameness”. If you want to be a better horseman, and have your horse be the best it can be....listen to all these podcasts with open ears!

Exceptional Podcast...Brilliant!! More Veterinarians need to be more like Dr. DeClue!!!

This podcast series is EXCEPTIONAL!! Especially for those of us in the competition sport horse world! I am a trainer who SO appreciates Dr. DeClue's information and perspective. She is completely accurate and extremely insightful on her observations, how horses "feel" under saddle, how they ride, how their behavior is indicating their problems during competition and HOW to notice these problems myself. Dr. DeClue, your passion, dedication and position for always putting the horse first I admire greatly. It is hard to do this in the competition world of one horse show after another, but after listening to your podcasts I realized that I too need to change my attitude and start putting the horse first above the demands of winning, competition and money!! Dr. DeClue, I need you as MY Veterinarian for my client horses! Would you consider? Why are there not more Veterinarians like Dr. DeClue???

Functional medicine for horses

This podcast hit me in the heart. We lost our great show mare Lopin Lola at the age of 13 from a broken leg. I think the years and years of injecting and osphos every 6 months to mask the pain in her fusing Hocks , made her bones week.
It was never discussed perhaps the pain was coming from something different even though the injections were not really helping. Not to mention it would get much worse with a rider on her back, barely detectable on a longe line.
Thank you for the insight!
