Holistic Horse Issue 113
As we head into deep, dark February, most of us have to admit that sometimes we need a little help—whether it be physical, mental, emotional, or all of the above! And why should our horses be any different?It’s no secret that the self-care industry is booming, and there’s a good reason. We’re all looking for remedies for stress, sleeplessness, overwork, and anxiety. Many of those remedies are right at our fingertips, and many of them are natural.

Mindful horsemanship, that special connection between a horse and its owner, is what we strive to bring our readers and subscribers. Through our magazine, website,
e-Newsletters and social media, we carefully select content to learn and enhance our relationships with our horses, families, friends and each other. In this issue, we examine the Native American way of healing through horse medicine; the effects of sound and music on horses; how stress affects you and your horse; leg therapy options for horses; and the links between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and insulin resistance (IR).

Holistic Horse was founded more than 20 years ago on the notion that horse owners and their animals deserve to explore the integrative remedies available, not only for themselves and their families but also for their horses, animals and pets. We are constantly encouraged when we cross paths with like-minded individuals, practitioners and organisations outside of our publishing world that are using integrative therapies and remedies and readily sharing ideas and practical solutions.
Holistic Horse Issue 109
Summer is the season we get to spend the most time with our horses and a great time to brush up on your skills with the many horsemanship clinics offered during the season. In this issue, check out the benefits of bareback riding; how our veterans are gaining new skills and a new vocation with Arabian horses; learn about Ayurveda and equine health; and the dangers, symptoms, and treatment of anhidrosis. Our Hoof Care section looks at equine canker and how to treat and heal this stubborn infection
Holistic Horse Issue 108
We featured an article on the importance of quality of our horses’ drinking water entitled, “How Safe Is Your Horse’s Water?” It’s a subject we hold close to our hearts. In February 2017, the American Horse Council (AHC) of which Holistic Horse Media is a member, sent out a press release, “Trump Administration to Rollback Clean Water Act Rule.” The 2015 rule, “Waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS), was originally opposed by the AHC and other agricultural groups, a position we admittedly were unaware of or did not pay attention to at the time.

For most of us, the health and well-being of you and your horses are the priority. In this issue, we look at related topics such as: the safety of drinking water; free-choice forage for the laminitis horses; how moisture can affect your horse’s hooves; yoga for the rider; herbal support for seasonal mares; benefits of turmeric for your horse; how fluoride can be damaging to your health; and the hidden benefits of colostrum and iron overload in horses. We also have a special commentary on holistic and conventional veterinary medicine working together to solve horse health issues.
Holistic Horse Issue 106
Horses are often improperly diagnosed during a lameness evaluation. Treatment often includes invasive treatments of the lower extremities. In this issue, we look closely at the horse’s neck as the agitator — which is far too often missed. We also look at the causes of coughing; essential oils to support our horses’ nerves and bones; and sprouted seeds to add to your horse’s diet. Our Herb Blurb section looks at the benefits of the nourishing oat. We also look at how topical iodine can be harmful.
