Gut Health Webinar

You know the saying “no hoof, no horse?” A equally true adage could be, “no gut, no horse.” After all, two-thrids of a horse’s immune system lies in the digestive tract. It would make sense, then, to learn as much as we can about the horse’s digestive system and how we can best care for […]



Hemp for Horses

One of the most interesting new herbal supplements to come on the market is medicinal hemp with a high Cannabinoid (CBD) content. Hemp is one of the most useful plants in the world, since over 7000 products can be made from it– everything from fuel oil to paper to food, clothing and medicine. The nutritional […]


Saddle Fit Webinar

Poor saddle fit, or the skin or muscle damage and the pain associated with it, usually shows up as performance problems, rather than overt sores. Performance problems range from a mildly “cold back” to severe bucking […]


Seasonal Saddle Fit

Ask Dr. Harman: Complementary Treatment for Snake Bites

Question: What do you use for rattlesnake bites? I was reading in Pat Coleby’s book Natural Horse Care that vitamin C injected intramuscular on both sides of the neck works. Is this true? Can you give me more details on exactly how much and how often you need to do an injection? Should you keep a […]

Our mission is to assist in training veterinarians more comprehensively in veterinary herbal medicine, to expand their herbal knowledge and experience, and to help them evolve through a process that would lead to an advanced degree (similar to a “Master’s” degree) […]


Treating Skin Disease Holistically

Horses are itchy this time of year. From biting flies and swarming gnats to allergies, some horses try to scratch themselves raw! Equine skin diseases are a significant problem in many parts of the country. Because of the humidity, the southern United States sees many forms of skin disease continue through the winter, while the […]
