Most of the common health problems affecting domestic horses are a result of man-made violations of the horse’s natural lifestyle and can be prevented through removal of the cause and a return to a species-appropriate lifestyle.
An HHP will look at a horse holistically and try to identify such cause or causes, and then establish an action plan to remove it/them. This is in contrast to symptomatic treatment, which considers the symptom as the problem and all attention is on such.
