A selection of quotes from vets who have experienced our work
Dr Jahn of Bargteheide gives his approval of our work
"I have the greatest respect for Samsara and their work and I am convinced that their kind of work with the horses is a great addition to horse medicine." Dr. med. vet. Werner Jahn, Chief Vet, Bargteheide Horse Clinic
Vet corroborates Samsara work on KS horse
Flame was with us for 12 weeks in 2013. Having being diagnosed with KS the owner (and her vet agreed) thought that there must be alternatives to surgery and happened to see us in July's HORSE magazine article. Here's what he had to say a year later:
"I've known 'Flame' for many years when concerns of his movement and top line started to arise back in May last year . Subsequently my investigation brought to light that this lovely Thoroughbred gelding was suffering from impingement of several dorsal spinous processes ('kissing spines') throughout his thoracic and lumbar spine. As I believe that surgical removal of these processes will only lead to a significant destabilisation of the horse's back I agreed to the owner's request to try and rehabilitate him at the Samsara Equitation Centre.
Having seen him during several re-examinations a year later I am impressed with his abilities to hold his core muscles and move through his back and abdominal line. Repeat radiographs have not shown any further deterioration. The horse is again able to enjoy ridden work, thanks to the professional rehabilitation programme and his dedicated owner." Ralph Hege, DVM MRCVS, Galley Hill Equine Surgery
Gerd Heuschmann's thumbs up for our work
I took a horse to Gerd Heuschmann's riding clinic in Chipping Norton in March. Apart from being a great experience Gerd was duly impressed with the work we are doing as witnessed by the massive change in the horse I took. To quote him,"On my last visit to Mrs Emily Baker near Oxford I had the opportunity to get to know the equine rehab work of Stephen Goodridge. He had taken a horse with severe, extensive issues and turned it into a normal riding horse. Many thanks for the good work." Dr Gerd Heuschmann, Vet, Classical rider and trainer.
(The original reads, „Bei meinen letzten bei Frau Baker in der Nähe von Oxford hatte ich die Gelegenheit die Korrekturarbeit von Stephen Goodridge kennenzulernen. Er hat ein, im höchsten Maße verdorbenes Pferd zu einem ordentlich gerittenem Pferd gemacht. Vielen Dank für die gute Arbeit“.)
