Jade Martin is a hoof care practitioner who is passionate about alternative hoof care. Her journey started as an owner wanting to know more about her horses health and wellbeing to be better equipped to make informed decisions about their management. After a few weekend learn-to-trim course, she has gone on to study the ACEHP hoof care course and is also furthering her education by attending clinics with the likes of Daisy Bicking from Daisy Haven Farm and Pete Ramey.
Kathryn McAllan has always had a passion for the health and well being of all animals. It has been through a long self discovery journey that she has found her true passion with horses. She started off learning Equine Sports Massage, going on to study Reiki, Equine Bowen Therapy, Equine Unwinding and am in the process of studying Equine Facilitated Learning. The more that she learns, the hungrier that she becomes to study horses so that she can help them and their owners. She has been lucky enough to meet some amazing people along the journey and be opened up to the requirements of keeping a horse fit, healthy and happy. These people have inspired Kathryn to heal horses and to educate owners on the health, well being and upkeep of horses to ensure they are always at their optimum.
Combining hoof care, body work, nutrition and other factors we have developed a new way of approaching whole horse wellness.
