Inspiritus Equine, Inc. was named for the Latin, "to breathe in and be filled with the spirit, which is what it means to be alive." Literally, to be Inspired. Inspired to find solutions, to see an animal with maximal pain-free movement, to achieve both mental and physical health, to educate and create change for wellness and harmonious partnerships.

When an animal is pain-free, has a full range of motion, and is in a state of wellness, they move as if inspired. Unfortunately, due to today's husbandry methods, feeding principles, training shortcuts, gadgets, and competition demands, mental and physical stressors create pain, lameness, behavioral problems, gastrointestinal disorders, and more. Natural aging causes metabolic shifts, arthritis, and wear and tear. Traditional medicine focuses on the "part" and directs treatment to alleviate those symptoms, often providing short-term relief and masking the underlying cause. A Wholistic approach looks at the sum of all parts - the environment, diet, tack, training, shoeing, dentistry, and deficiencies and excesses...and the human element. Ultimately, the best of both Eastern and Western can be used to promote true Quality of Life. Scroll or click on the images below for more.
If your horse is biting, bucking, or bolting, cold-backed and stiff, crooked, resistant to aids, had a recent dental or surgery, is head-tossing, losing muscle, developing lumps and bumps, having problems with leads...your horse is in pain!
Have you spent thousands of dollars to diagnose and treat your horse's mystery lameness without real results? Frustrated, depressed, and just want your horse to feel well again? Tired of being told there's nothing wrong when you know in your gut your partner isn't moving or acting the way they should? Joint injections, 'Bute and Stall Rest' getting tiresome? Thinking of selling your horse because you don't know what else to do?
