How the story begins.... The Horse Sensei concept is dedicated to all the rescue horses across the country because it was among the rescue herd at the Horse Protection Society of NC that the inspiration manifested. One morning I was tending a lovely mare with the worse case of scratches I had ever encountered. The fungus scabs were over 1/2 inch long and covered both of her rear pasterns & fetlocks. Her pain was so severe that she would not let anyone touch her legs to treat her condition. It would take weeks to soften the fungus scabs enough to remove them without causing her to bleed. As I gently worked on her legs, I could not help but think how sad it was that something that was normally so simple to cure had come to this level of severity. If her owner had known how to treat scratches and had help handling the mare for her treatments, how different this mare's life would be today.
From knowledge, wisdom. From wisdom, understanding.
It is the mission of the Horse Sensei to bring both knowledge and aid to horse owners by offering classes in horse care, providing daily medical care services, vacation barn care and offering assistance to starved and rescued horses.
