Horse owners are often left confused and unprepared when it comes to dealing with emergencies. It's not always clear what the best course of action is for treating a sick or injured horse.

Even if you're prepared, it's likely that you'll be too nervous or overwhelmed to react effectively when the worst happens. You end up feeling like:

  • “I don’t know if it’s necessary to call the vet?”
  • “How do I know if something is life threatening but not obvious to the untrained eye?”
  • “What can I use to treat my horse while I wait for the vet?"
  • “I have some natural remedies at home but I don’t know how to use them.”
  • “Can I make my horse worse if I give the wrong thing?”
  • “If only I had got around to sorting out a proper first aid kit!”

You love your horse. You do your best to look after your horse.


You know how SCARY it is when your horse get's colic or suffers an injury.

Especially when it's at night and it's hard to get hold of your vet.


You also like to take a holistic approach with your horse's health, that mirrors your own life.

You KNOW you could feel so much more confident when you know what to do in emergency situations like colic, wounds, choke or snakebite. 

Imagine what it’s going to be like when…

  • You can identify for sure if your horse is sick and what could be going on.
  • You know what you can do immediately to help your horse.
  • You know exactly if you need to call your vet and the most important information to tell them.
  • You know what to do, or NOT to do for your horse while you're waiting for your vet.
  • You have a properly stocked first aid kit and you know how to use it.
  • You’re confident to use natural remedies to help your horse and you know which ones to keep in your kit.
  • You know how to ask your vet really good questions and not just go along with treatments that you don’t understand. 
  • You know what to look out for after your vet has been.
  • You can help your horse to heal naturally.

I now feel a strong sense of confidence that I know what to do in an emergency

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.

Your Best Insurance to Keep Your Horse Healthy is


Horses are an expensive affair. It's easy to blow your budget just with the normal upkeep for your horse, let alone when a big vet bill hits you. And let's face it, horses seem to get colic or hurt themselves most commonly in the evening or on a weekend when your vet charges additional after-hours fees! 

A vet bill to treat a colic starts at around $500 and very quickly creeps into the $1000s of dollars. One way you can reduce the risk of a big vet bill is by being able to identify a problem with your horse early and immediately taking steps to apply first aid and communicate with your vet. A colic for example has a much better chance for recovery before a horse develops complications such as dehydration and shock. Knowing what to do before you call your vet (if the situation requires one), while you wait and after your vet leaves are critical to reducing complications, helping your horse heal and saving money on vet bills!

 Now of course you can find lots of information on the internet and in books about first aid for your horse. In fact, there's no shortage of information out there. The problem is, you'll find many different answers to the same question. Some advice is helpful, other advice can actually harm your horse.

It can also take hours to find the proper, relevant information. In an emergency, there's no time for that. You need to have the right information at your fingertips and importantly, you also need to have the right equipment stocked in your first aid kit and know how to use it. During a colic is not the best time to learn how to take your horse's heart rate!

You can take all that stress away by enrolling in the Holistic Equine First Aid Course.

Hey, I'm 

Dr Maike Turnbull  

BSc BVMS (Hons) 

I'm a horse lover and veterinarian. It was always my dream to become a veterinarian to help keep horses happy and healthy.  As a veterinarian, I love what modern medicine has to offer, but I also acknowledge the wisdom shared by natural based therapies. It's important to me to have a truly holistic approach to health and healing for  horses.

I have been blessed with many animals in my life who taught me important lessons about the value of expanding my knowledge and tool box to include holistic therapies.

I love sharing my knowledge to empower and inspire horse owners to help their horses in simple and very effective ways. 

Here’s what people are saying about the course instructor...

"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."

Sue Ruessmann
Horse Owner & Course Participant

"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."
