Central Chapter News - May 2015

A Beautiful Horse

by Vicki Hodel

What is my 2014 memorable moment? This is a hard one. 2014 was a year of many highs and lows. There isn’t one WOW moment for me this year. Instead, it was a year of revelations and growth.

The year started off great. I started riding Beamer for Shelly Reichart. Beamer was amazing and I really learned some great things about how to ride him correctly. I was so excited and he was progressing so well that I finally got up the courage to attend our first show!

 

Beamer

I decided WEC (Wisconsin Equestrian Center) would be a great place to go. It was a long drive and after lots of detours we finally made it! Wow, what a beautiful facility with such friendly staff. I got unloaded, settled Beamer in and parked the truck. I quick walk around the grounds to get my bearings and I was ready.

On February 9th the Central Chapter hosted an Integrative Medicine Seminar in Westfield,Wisconsin with Dr. Michelle Weidenkopf. We had a great turn out with 18 people attending. Dr. Weidenkopf gave a wonderful presentation on how Western Medicine (regular veterinary medicine) and Holistic Medicine can be used together to take care of some of our horses medical problems. She talked about how important proper hoof balance,dental balance,and proper saddle fit is for our horses healthy body mechanics.She also uses chiropractic and acupuncture as a treatment option in her practice. We can not thank her enough for donating all of the proceeds from this seminar to our Central Chapter.
