Injuries in Horses With Natural Solutions

injuries in horses

Injuries in horses are common. It’s not just the fact that they move fast, that they react quickly to stress to get away from it. It’s also what we do to them.

In many situations, we make them do things they are unsuited to do, that they know they can’t do, that they are not physically equipped to do, that frighten them. However, the bits, the spurs, the whips, the constraints are a bigger deterrent.

Horses are not stupid. They can sense uneven ground and take appropriate measures when they are in control of their actions. They will avoid an aggressive animal or attack to defend if that’s the only option. They’ve evolved here for a long time and are able to look after themselves, all things being equal.

Understanding the Equine Psyche

Horses have two downfalls that humans exploit, sometimes knowingly, sometimes because of poor understanding of the equine psyche.

1 - is that they are herd animals. Herd animals are together for safety reasons as a predator will have a harder time catching someone in a herd. To be expelled from a herd is the worst thing that can happen to a herd member.

It will only happen if that member does not obey the herd rules. To that end, horses fall over themselves to be compliant to the rules of the herd. The alternative is too dangerous, although young males have to, to start their own herd. The stallion of the herd will not tolerate the growing sexuality in young males and they’re unceremoniously forced out..

2 - is that they are stoic. Every prey animal is stoic. They hide their suffering, their injuries, their ailments as much as they can because if this is obvious, they are an easy target to a predator.

This means they can suffer more injuries, more suffering on top of whatever they currently have.

It’s not uncommon for sports horses to be used in an already booked and paid-for event before they hurt themselves.

However, the dynamic reason for the timing of that injury, or whatever, may have been a perfect opportunity for us to reflect on what we are doing.

Common Injuries in Horses

An injury doesn’t just come from a fall, scrap or accident. With our constraints, we can set up tensions in the body, which adds rigidity where there should be flexibility, fluidity.

Over work, tired muscles, is a form of injury.

These soft tissue injuries, whether the skin is broken or not, are not uncommon and can’t always be seen.

Other injuries can include nerve damage and hard tissue (bone) damage especially after a bad fall or serious accident.

Using bits has been known to break jaw bones. It’s likely that all bits cause soft tissue damage.

Over straining can cause tendon and ligament damage. This can be quite a minor sprain or a serious tearing. Tendons and ligaments don’t have nerve receptors, so there is no pain, perhaps just a little discomfort. But the affected joint will be weak so lameness is evident.

The affected joint can suddenly fail without energetic healing, long after it has suppossedly healed.

Old injuries can still hold the memory in their cells, causing discomfort, if not pain, and a stiffness or lack of normal flexibility.

It’s likely that many horses are sold or killed as a result. They are no longer useful.

The Homeopathic Treatment of Injuries in Horses

The homeopathic treatment of acute injuries in horses can be swift, effective, economical and complete. When healing is complete, the cells don’t hold the memory, so the symptoms will not appear later in life or be a weak point.

Employing the services of a homeopathic vet or practitioner can be worth its weight in gold. The likelihood of needing surgery, even in a severe injury is much reduced (although essential if a bone is broken or there is a large gaping wound). Recovery from surgery can be faster with good homeopathic treatment.

The homeopathic treatment automatically reduces, and eliminates, pain, automatically treats any infection, automatically prevents the sequela that inevitably comes from the consequences of injuries.

In the chronic treatment of injuries in horses, ie old injuries that may or may not be limiting, the use of homeopathy takes longer. However, it remains effective, efficient, economical and complete.

Horses are discerning. Not only do they willingly accept a homeopathic remedy, so no need for deception, they can also tell you if the choice is appropriate or not.

Increasing our awareness of who horses are and how in tune they are with their life and environment, can be an invaluable lesson for us to grow. Shifting our focus from us to the horse can create a stunning and deep appreciation of life.
