I began using Natalie's services when my mare was having some obscure lameness issues.  Natalie was able to isolate her sensitive areas, which pointed my vet in the right direction to find the cause.  After some changes to her feet, and with the support of ongoing bodywork, my mare is on the road to recovery and feeling better every day.  In addition to providing overall health benefits, Natalie helped prevent my horse's issue from becoming a larger, more long-term problem.  She is great for helping a horse recover, but more importantly, her routine care can help address problem areas early on.  She is an integral part of my horse's wellness team!"
