The efficacy of Karina's program cannot be denied. Proof after proof of horses of all ages from all different disciplines, healed!
How does she do it?
Karina is a naturally gifted horse woman with a keen understanding of the anatomy, biology and natural vital needs of the horse.
She deploys a level of skill that is not always conventional but is highly effective.
Karina specializes in hooves and teeth.
The balance between these two systems are VITAL to your horse's well being.
While dental care is often done within the first few weeks of Karina's care of your horse, the hoof health evolves over several months.
HOOFMEDIX focuses on restoring hoof health by REGROWING the hoof through an 8 - 12 month regrowth and regeneration cycle that is designed to preserve hoof wall integrity and the inner corium, and the hoof's natural, functional connections resulting in a new, fully connected, functioning hoof and better health.
HOOFMEDIX is NOT a one and done.
It is a method with a mission to heal.
There are many different options to optimum horse care.
