    Allergies in animals with Calee Dufva

    52:00

    Allergies…. A seasonal irritation for some and a constant worry for others. Allergies can present a major health challenge for our animals and ourselves. When they become severe, it can be critical to get medical intervention quickly. As humans, we can vocalize our discomforts and evaluate what factors may have been at play to cause our bodies to go into a histamine response. For our animals however, its’ not that easy to determine when they start to feel unwell and then trace it back to what factor is at play. Anyone who’s dealt with allergies in their animals can attest to how difficult a journey it can become! Today we chat with Calee Dufva. Calee is a long time InHand client who has run the gauntlet when it comes to allergies with her basset hound Mookie. We sit down with Calee (and Mookie) to hear how she was able to work through his health challenges and bring him to a healthy life. Our goal with this podcast is to continually open the conversation around equine wellness and bodywork. It is through open conversation that we can grow this industry with knowledge and understanding of our equine partners. Ever evolving along with tried and true methods of horse husbandry, it’s by learning from one another that we will elevate the care of these amazing animals and partners.

    Discipline Focus - Barrel Racing with Shaun Rathy

    35:59

    As a bodyworker, we can see a variety of horses in any given day and we likely have worked on horses from many disciplines. However, it isn’t uncommon to get in involved with having more clients based in a certain discipline. Whether that be because it’s the discipline we ourselves compete in, or because it’s the barns we’ve been working in predominantly that have a specific focus. Whatever it may be, we thought it would be fun to chat with individuals from a variety of different equine sports to discuss the ins and outs of their discipline as well as talk about what specifics we might find as bodyworkers in the horses that perform there. Today our focus is on Barrel Racing. Fast is an understatement when most races are won in under twenty seconds with mili-seconds between contestant times!! A discipline that on the outside seems simple enough, but when you add in all the elements required, one sees how in-depth and technical it truly is. Today we sit down with Shaun Rathy, manager for the rehab and breeding operations of one of Alberta’s premier facilities, the Bar None Ranch. Shaun has been involved with horses the majority of her life, she started out in the hunter/jumper world before switching to Barrel Racing. Her training and conditioning program is superb so it was fabulous to sit down with her and find out the inner workings of this sport.

    Riding for straightness with Crystal Kroetch

    41:52

    Often when we talk about riding for straightness, the image of a horse, collected and engaged, going in a straight line down the long side of the arena comes to mind. But how do you achieve straightness in the corners? Or out in the field? And why is it important to work on straightness in our horses? How do we as bodyworkers, help riders achieve success here? Today we chat with Crystal Kroetch of Carousel Stables. Crystal is a master at the art of achieving straightness in horses and has worked with and rode in a variety of disciplines from ranch work to FEI level dressage.

    52:55

    Todays guests are Tyler and Kayleigh Albrecht of Albrecht Performance Horses. Tyler is a professional trainer and Kayleigh, a non-pro in the western performance discipline of Working Cow Horse. One of the most exhilarating western sports to watch, working cow horse competitions showcase an incredibly athletic horse, versed in multiple events, all combined into one sport. With roots going back centuries to the vaqueros of Mexico working cattle on large tracks of land primarily in the state of California, it is an event that thinks about the development of a horse through the various stages of growth. A finished bridle horse is one with extraordinary talent. While Tyler started his own business only about a decade ago, he has been involved in the industry since he was a youngster, with his family showing reining horses, and has worked with some of Alberta’s top trainers, including a mentorship with Doug Reinhardt. Kayleigh as well has worked for a number of cutting horse trainers including Brad Pedersen. Together they operate Albrecht Performance Horses just outside of Trochu, Alberta.

    Discipline Focus: Chuckwagon Racing with Chad and Caitlin Fike

    41:29

    Mention Chuckwagon Racing and it is bound to get the heart pumping!! This is a fast paced, exhilarating discipline that marries the traditions of our western heritage with todays sport performance horses. It has many fans and loyal supporters that follow the wagons around the circuit of Western Canada throughout the spring and summer. The last two years have been difficult for the wagon families, as it has been for many of us, but with families to support and dozens of horses on top of all that, it has been awesome to see them able to start racing again this summer! With so many horses that go down the road with them, they require extensive care. It was great to be able to sit down with two individuals who work diligently on every aspect of their programs. From conditioning, to feed, to herd management, to pre and post care routines and more, Chad and Caitlin opened their doors to us as we sat down to talk all things Chuckwagons. Chad and Caitlin Fike of Chad Fike Chuckwagon Racing, have been living this life since they were born. Both raised in the industry, Chad as a 4th generation chuckwagon family and Caitlin as a daughter of a racehorse trainer, they take it all to heart. This is a family affair and requires everyone to pitch in to make it all happen. For more information on Chad Fike Chuckwagon Racing, check out their social media on Facebook under the same handle, or Instagram @cfikechuckwagon.

    Transitions from Spring to Summer

    50:58

    We started our discussion on acupressure with Jesse McCowan of Birch Animal Wellness and Tallgrass Canada in episode #5 on March 10 of this year. Today we are going to look specifically at the use of acupressure to help our horses transition from Spring to Summer season. Transitions are something we all experience, a process or period of changing from one state or condition to another. The transitions from one season to season can be especially difficult for a horse when they grow or shed their coats, have hormonal influx or depletion, gain or loose weight, and more. All of that within their own bodies, let alone the transitions happening around them with environment and herd mates. So it’s no wonder that these transition times are often more stressful on them. Today we will discuss transitions from spring to summer as we near the summer equinox here in the northern hemisphere. We have Jesse McCowan joining us again as well as Carol Yates, certified in acupressure for equines by the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute who works here in southern Alberta. Additionally they have given the bonus of a chart of reference for points you can use with your own horses. This will be posted on our social media sites as well as our YouTube channel. For more information on Jesse, check out her website: https://www.birchanimalwellness.com as well as https://www.tallgrasscanada.com or by email at [email protected] To connect with Carol, please email her at [email protected] Our goal with this podcast is to continually open the conversation around equine wellness and bodywork.

    42:15

    PEMF or Pulsed Electronic Magnetic Therapy, is a relatively new modality, with the majority of the studies being done in the last 20+ years.

Like many tools, it can be a beneficial addition to a bodyworkers kit when applied properly and knowledgeably.

Cassidy has been utilizing PEMF in her bodywork sessions for the past few years and has recently joined the InHand Equine Therapy team as one the professional bodyworkers.  As an avid horsewoman, rancher and university athlete herself, it was the searching for answers and subsequent use of PEMF on herself and her horses that made Cassidy want to pursue this modality for her own business.

    Discipline Focus: Show Jumping with Alex and Holly Grayton

However, it isn’t uncommon to get in involved with having more clients based in a certain discipline. Whether that be because it’s the discipline we ourselves compete in, or because it’s the barns we’ve been working in predominantly that have a specific focus. Whatever it may be, we thought it would be fun to chat with individuals from a variety of different equine sports to discuss the ins and outs of their discipline as well as talk about what specifics we might find as bodyworkers in the horses that perform there. Our next guests are Alex and Holly Grayton. Alex is a professional trainer and Holly, his wife, a competitor as well in the sport of show jumping. Jumping is a natural movement for horses, and they are well suited for clearing obstacles with their power and speed. In combination with a rider, horses have been going over objects for centuries to simply get from one point to another, by way of sport (hunting and following prey over fence lines), and through wars. Show Jumping became more popular in an arena setting for spectators, as opposed to watching the cross country events of steeplechasing and eventing through the country side. It’s history dates back to the late 1800’s and it’s a sport that is judged not only on the horse and riders ability to get around the course without knocking a jump, but also factors in time, on how quickly and effectively the course is completed. It is one of the oldest equestrian sports with it first appearing in the Olympic Games in 1900. Alex has mentored and trained with some of the industries top trainers such as Ian Millar, Emile and Paul Hendrix, Kyle King, George Morris and more. He has developed, shown and trained horses for FEI, International and Grand Prix competitions. Holly, an avid competitor herself, shows at top level in FEI and Grand Prix rings. They operate Grayton Farms from Calgary, AB with their training and sales program. Holly also runs GraytDesigns which offers private photography at show, portrait and studio shoots, print media and website design. For more information on Alex’s program, check out the website: https://www.alexandergrayton.com/ or through Facebook @Grayton Farms Ltd or Instagram @grayton_farms.

    Locomotion Pathology with Dr Chad Hewlett

    1:02:22

    We see it often, a horse that is sore, lame or simply just “off”. Recovery is often dependent on so many factors including the individual itself (age, temperament and severity of injury), environment they can recover in (large or small, controlled or just turned out?), time commitment of caregiver (are they around 24/7 or only can deal with it once a day?) and use of a team approach (including the vet, farrier and bodyworker). Sometimes not matter how well the recovery seemingly goes, underlying compensation patterns could remain. Many more factors can be in play as well but the general idea is that when a horse becomes sore and requires attention to help it heal, we are not only looking at it from this initial injury but also at preventing future injuries due to improper healing, or from overuse of other tissue from compensation that weakens other areas. So that little trip they had a month ago, you guessed it, might be the culprit of your torn ligament today! In our episode today we chat with one of Alberta’s best lameness and sport medicine veterinarians, Dr Chad Hewlett of Energy Equine. Dr Hewlett has been in practice for over two decades, specializing in equine locomotion. So we sat down with Dr Hewlett to talk all about equine locomotion pathologies. For more information on Dr Hewlett, check out the website: https://www.energyequine.ca/ and like and follow them on Facebook and instagram under @energyequine.
