Lisa Ross-Williams is a natural horse care consultant and host of the “Natural Horse Talk” webcast available at www.naturalhorsetalk.com. She is the Publisher/Editor-In-Chief of Natural Horse Magazine, www.naturalhorse.com as well as the creator of Equi-Spirit™ Toys & Tools, unique and durable horse play balls and horsemanship tools. Along with her husband, Kenny they share their Talking Horse Ranch with their beloved animals. Although Lisa had a childhood horse friend, upon re-entering the equine world as an adult, she was totally unprepared for what was to come, namely a spirited Arabian named Rebel. Lisa’s work with Rebel sent her on a journey that would change the path of her life and his. As she began looking for horse handling information to deal with his special issues, she realized all the normal care practices seemed so ‘unnatural’ for horses. Unable to find a solution, she began a personal quest to find a better approach. Lisa dedicated herself to extensive research, as well as an exploration of hands-on experiences which included clinics, seminars and courses covering natural horsemanship, hoof care, dentistry, bodywork, homeopathy, iridology, essential oils and nutrition. She has earned her degree in Environmental Plant Science, has completed the Basic Homeopathy Veterinary course through the British Institute of Homeopathy, completed the Reiki 1/Equine Reiki course and is an Iridology Technician. She has and has been involved with natural horsemanship since 1997. Known to colleagues and friends as one who “walks her talk,” Lisa has positively influenced thousands of horse owners and grateful horses, sharing her knowledge of natural and holistic horse care since 1998.
Kenny Williams is a natural hoof care provider and educator, equine body worker, freelance writer and the co-host & technical producer of the If Your Horse Could Talk webcast. Kenny started trimming hooves in 1998 out of necessity since the barefoot approach was still new and there wasn’t a trimmer in the area. He was a natural at not only understanding what the hoof was telling him but also had the ability to explain a natural hoof to everyday people. He utilizes natural horsemanship, essential oils and energy work to help balance horses in mind, body and spirit. He has completed the Reiki 1/Equine Reiki course and has been involved with natural horsemanship since 1997. His best teachers have been the horses themselves and he’s happy to pass that knowledge around.
