WHITETHORN EQUINE HEALTH
Recently we undertook the first dry-run for the Level 2 workshop later this month and we are getting very excited! In the mornings there will be discussion on issues such as barriers to success, Triggers, Mind-body connections, mixing modalities, emergencies, dealing with trauma. Case studies will also be referred to along with science papers where possible. Participants are joining us from all over Ireland and the UK, many of which are experts in their field and so we look forward to some lively enriching debate! In the afternoon, small groups of students will be assigned a horse along with a kit and a breakout room on Zoom (or should that be stable? ) Participants Online will be assigned a Breakout Stable and join in with the session by suggesting extracts to offer, take the session notes etc. Also part of the plan is to have a roaming Yard-Cam going from group to group catching snippets from each session for further interest for those online. Team Vet Kerstin will assess the horses prior to the workshop and also be on hand to give valuable input. Horses in Breakout rooms is an absolute first in the Equine Educational Industry in Ireland if not in the World. We are very excited about these developments and Welcoming you all to Whitethorn Farm either physically or virtually!
Hi! My name is Carly and I head up the Whitethorn Team. I am also a lifelong lover of Dogs and Horses. When my mare was having regular episodes of Colic I looked around for a solution and found Applied Zoopharmacognosy (also called the self-selection method and free choice botanicals). I was so impressed that I trained in this fascinating effective herbal approach and have gone on now to train others. That was over a decade ago and I am now part of the Whitethorn Team and work with horses and dogs all over the world to help them restore emotional and physical health. As part of the support we offer, we also supply herbal remedies at our online shop along with providing workshops and one-to-one mentoring (Onsite & Online) on how to work with them. We truly hope that you enjoy and maybe learn a little from our blog. Carly and the Whitethorn Team, Sligo Ireland
