Harmany Equine Clinic, Ltd has been open since 1990, bringing holistic healing to horses from all walks of life, backyard retirees to Olympic competitors. Over the years Dr. Joyce Harman has observed and adapted to the changing needs of our horses and clients. Twenty-plus years ago, no one had heard of Lyme disease or Insulin Resistance, yet today that makes up a large part of my clinical practice.
In 2001, I wrote the first paper in a peer-reviewed journal about the possibility that horses have insulin resistance (IR), and now it is part of our every day conversation. In 2004 I published the first comprehensive book on English saddle fitting since the 1800’s, with the western version of the book following in 2006. To this date, these books are the only books written by an author who is independent from a saddle company, which brings unbiased information to the horse world.
I have created this site to bring you answers to your tough medical questions and products to help solve your quest for quality ingredients and formulas that work. I research every company, and use products with human grade, organic, ethically harvested or otherwise top quality ingredients.

Insulin Resistance is a huge problem in our area, with year-round grass (except this winter :). Spring is just around the corner with that flush of rich grass that is a trigger for laminitis as well as obesity. Come join me to learn more about this condition, how it relates to Cushing’s disease, and how to manage it.
