Michael Markarian: Animals & Politics: The Most Dangerous Two Minutes in Sports | Barn Chatter | Scoop.it
Racehorses are impressive, and it would be hard not to be awed by their power and grace. But there’s an important power they lack: unlike other athletes, they have no control over the drugs administered to them.

The Natural Barefoot Horse Movement | KristineOakhurst.com | Barn Chatter | Scoop.it
Helyn Cornille's insight:

Believe it or not, they are calling it a movement. Barefoot, natural trimming franchises are the new hot trend in horse care. It is a beautiful scam that has been developed specifically to target the inexperienced horseman or horsewoman. The fad has swept the horse world off its shoes and into new barefoot ground where lots and lots of horses are gimping around wishing the pain would stop.

Immersion 2013

Immersion 2013 | Barn Chatter | Scoop.it
Immersion at Science Of Motion farm in GA October. Lectures,demos
Helyn Cornille's insight:

There is no limit to what can be accomplished when no one cares who gets the credit." (John Wooden) There is no limit to what can be accomplished as long as the horse’s rehabilitation is not limited to one’s beliefs. Rehabilitating a horse demands a large body of knowledge. A great part of this knowledge is about identifying and working with the right experts. The forum of the IHTC is successful because it is not about one trying to resolve every problems from a single perspective, but instead the forum allows knowledgeable riders, therapist, vets, farrier, nutritionists, barefoot trimmers to respect each other expertness, exchange ideas and broader their education.


One cannot know all, but the horse can benefit from all. This is the thought directing the special Immersion scheduled October 5 and 6 at the Science of Motion Center. Five experts are going to discuss in front of you and with you about the same subject, from their own field of expertise. One of the subjects is Navicular Syndrome. DR, Pike DVM and DR, Elliot DVM from Piedmont Equine Associates, will talk about available treatments and therapies. Patrick Roth, who, as a farrier, works closely with Dr. Pike and Dr. Elliot, will talk about his experience on trimming and shoeing. Dr. Betsy Uhl, DVM, PhD, will present her research on navicular syndrome. Betsy is also an advanced dressage rider and her double skill guided her to observe in the necropsy room, the relation between improper vertebral column mechanism and limbs kinematics abnormalities causing the development of navicular syndrome. Jean Luc Cornille will explain how in hand work and riding technique can rehabilitate the horse.
