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.
“Down-to-Earth Natural Horse Care” has been a journey in the making, and covers an extensive array of topics including nutrition, hydration, creating a natural environment for the horse, equine dentistry, non-toxic deworming, colic, trailering and traveling, foals, senior health, hoof care, complementary therapies, natural horsemanship, toy playtime’ with horses — as well as other subjects. Lisa has spent years researching and testing everything she's included in this book, and truly wants to share her experience and knowledge with horse owners.
