Learn to help

Your Horse

I help horse owners become educated on natural therapies to feel confident in helping their horse when sick or injured.

Unlike information where you can’t be sure that it’s relevant or even safe for your horse, I bridge conventional veterinary care with natural medicine that offers peace of mind.

You know your horse best.

I can give you the knowledge and practical tools available thanks to modern medicine and natural, holistic therapies that could save your horse's life and help recovery from illness.

Hi, I'm Maike

I'm a passionate horse owner and Veterinarian. I love what modern medicine has to offer and the many lives it saves. And I respect and acknowledge the wisdom of natural based therapies.   

Through searching for answers over the years, I discovered the powerful synergy available today in putting to use 'the best of both worlds' - modern science and natural complementary therapies, for a truly holistic approach to health and healing for our horses.   

Working as a horse vet made me realise that YOU, as a horse owner, could be empowered by having more knowledge and confidence in what to do when your horse is sick or injured. That's how I became passionate about teaching First Aid to Horse Owners. There are so many things you can add to your 'toolbox' to help your Horse!

This is what past students have said about the course...

Maike's course has been fantastic and I would highly recommend it to anyone who owns horses no matter how much or how little experience you feel that you have in this area.

I have always agisted my horses and had plenty of people to help me if I had questions. Now that I have them at home and having never dealt with a serious emergency I felt a bit unsure of a few things. When is it an emergency? When do I need to call a vet? What information will my vet need? What can I do to help my horse whilst we wait? How can I support their healing and recovery afterwards?

This course covered all of that and I now feel a strong sense of confidence that I know what to do in an emergency.

Maike has a very clear teaching style and is very knowledgeable about both conventional medicine and herbal medicine, homeopathy and acupressure. The teaching is self paced so you can follow along in your own time.

Now that I have my horses' vitals recorded, a fully stocked first aid kit and the knowledge of what to do in an emergency I am looking forward to learning more about the holistic aspects of looking after my horse's health.

"Anyone who has horses in their lives will benefit from learning as much as they can from Maike

What I like most about learning from Maike is without a doubt, Maike's knowledge, experience and enthusiasm. Maike has an incredible scope of knowledge that spans from science through to more holistic therapies and her skills and experience are forever increasing.

Maike has spent years developing and refining her knowledge, skills and experience and she is on a continuous journey of self development. All of this means she is in a league of her own in what she offers in the form of education and advice to anyone interested in horse health and welfare. I feel incredibly privileged that she is willing to share her knowledge and enthusiasm and anyone that has horses in their lives will benefit from learning as much as they can from Maike."

"Maike shares her knowledge in an easy to understand way

Her explanations are easy to follow, even for the more complex of situations. She openly shares her holistic medical knowledge with you. You can ask any question (even the most basic) and Maike will give you an honest answer without making you feel silly.

Maike went out of her way when I requested a good first aid kit for my horses and created one suitable for my needs. Now I just top up my original first aid kit. Maike has a genuine interest ensuring horse owners have the correct tools and knowledge to offer the best care for their horses. I have done several of Maike's courses and always learn extra care tips."

"I haven't seen anything else like this

The course will give you a comprehensive introduction to all things holistic horse health and give you knowledge and tools to apply to support your horse through a first aid emergency. It will open you up to a world of knowledge you didn't realise you need and give you the confidence to support your horse with holistic treatments.

I haven't seen anything else like this which addresses holistic first aid and empowers the owner to support their horse alongside veterinary treatment. Maike is a wealth of information on all things holistic horse health!"
