My first horse was a 26 year-­old retired gelding who was in chronic pain and cribbed every moment of every day.  No one knew what to do with him.  When I looked at him I saw a horse coping as best he could with the environment he was in.  His needs were changing as he was aging, and he was no longer a fit with the environment.  My thought was if I changed the environment and how he was managed, then his behavior and condition would change.

Eager to try my experiment, I took him into my care, which began a straight up learning curve about everything horses.  Why not cure cribbing?  Why not be rid of chronic pain?  Why can’t a senior horse be active and full of life right up until the day they die?

God’s Window Senior Horse Rehab is the compilation of everything I have learned to date from this horse, and others on how to bring about a fully alive senior horse. The results are amazing:

  • Silky soft hair coat
  • Bright and curious eyes
  • Excellent body condition
  • Increased fitness
  • Eagerness to interact with humans and other horses

I hope the information here will give you ideas on how to improve the health and well-being of your own senior horses (or any horses for that matter).  Keep learning and listening to your horses.  They will not lead you astray.
