Osteotherapy is relativly unknown in the US, contrary to chiropraxis.

It’s a gentle method to treat anatomic and clinical dysfunctions in the horse and holds a lot of possibilities.
I strongly believe in a wholistic treatment of the horse. This means in – addition to regulary osthetherapeutic treatment – no healthy horse without an equilibrated hoof, attuned training, customized feedstuff, species appropriated holding conditions and a well-balanced rider.

That’s what I’m aiming for in my practice and that’s what I want to encourage in my clinics.
As a veterinarian for over fifteen years, further educations in osteotherapy, shoeing for soundness, immunological science and a dressage rider myself I want to improve the treatment of the horse according to its biomechanic requirements.

I work together with specialists who hold the horses welfare particular dear. Gentle and extremly professional riders, physiotherapists and psychotherapists specialized in riders will accompany me, relating to the program you choose.
