Horse Care

Horse care is the most important aspect of ownership. The topics that Horse Illustrated has covered include: behavior, deworming, grooming, farriery, dentistry, adoption, welfare, charities within the industry, overall health (such as diseases and conditions), injuries, wound care, lameness, mare and foal care, nutrition, pest control, safety, seasonal management, senior care, vaccinations, and much more.

To help your equine be healthy, you will want to work with an equine veterinarian, farrier, and equine dentist. In addition, there are alternative practitioners, such as equine chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists, etc. Always review the qualifications of someone before you let them help you with your equine best friend.
