Why Choose DHF? by DHF President, Jen Truett

I was recently contacted by someone who has a horse with intermittent lameness issues wanting to know why she should choose DHF to board and train. My response seemed worth sharing .

Yes, DHF would definitely meet your needs. Our vet is the best in the area who specializes in lameness: Dr. Brian McNabb with Lebanon Equine Clinic. DHF's official farrier, Skip Miller, is a dissertation away from his Ph.D. in veterinary medicine and is fantastic with lameness issues. We have fantastic bodyworkers and chiropractors. I am one of only four accredited Ride With Your Mind (TM) coaches in the North American continent and work closely with Mary Wanless and Heather Blitz to create happy, healthy, successful dressage horses and riders using biomechanics to improve balance and core strength in both horse and rider. My apprentices are developing into ethical and kind trainers, teachers, and managers using the same principles I use. Our highly trained staff is educated and observant. I have worked very hard to put together a top notch support team for my own and my clients' horses health and well being, and am very confident that my team is the best to handle any lameness or complication. I do not believe that you will find a more holistic approach to horse health and body balance than what we provide at DHF. DHF is a top notch sport horse facility providing the best care and education possible. You will not be dissatisfied if you move to DHF.
The person who queried Jen about DHF did wind up moving her horse here.
