We are proud to work with Vibeke in helping injured horses back into work by providing them with a correctly fitting and appropriate saddle for their rehabilitation and ongoing work. Dean first met Vibeke in 2005 after an introduction from Sandie Kjaer of Healthy Horse and initially fitted her own horses.
We also highly recommend Vibeke’s work to anyone with a horse with pelvic or lameness issues, here’s a bit of information about how Vibeke can help…
“My treatment of horses with movement issues is based on the following:
→ Acupuncture diploma from Denmark’s leading acupuncture school “Helseskolen i Søborg”, a 3-year education, that consist of the teachings of acupuncture and extensive knowledge and insight in anatomy, physiology and pathology.
→ Diploma in Equine massage
→ Courses in kinesiology – teachings about the energy bands of the body – meridians
→ Trained in physical manipulation by Håkon Lundell, an accomplished Swedish chiropractor and author of the book “Vad er det för fel på hästen?”
INJURIES HARD TO DIAGNOSE
My focus is to treat horses with injuries stemming from an imbalance or misalignment in the sacroiliac joint, but I ended up with this focus by accident!
Some years back I got a phone call from a friend, who had read the book “Vad er det för fel på hästen” (“What is wrong with the horse”) and had booked a treatment for her horse in Sweden with the Swedish equine-therapist Håkan Lundell. My friend’s horse had been lame for a long time, but reacted quickly and positively to the treatment of the sacroiliac join. I was impressed by the result and I befriended Håkon developed, who allowed me to participate, learn his technique and use it in my own treatment plans.
For the past 4 years I have had really good results with this technique, combined with the other treatment I use to help a horse’s movement apparatus.
I recommend Dean and Gini to my customers as they always find a saddle which fits both horse and rider no matter how unusual the shape or physical requirements the horse and rider have”
