In this section of the HorsePower Riding Academy (HPRA) website, from time to time we will show examples of horse care as they happen at HPRA.

There are many books and web articles which offer a comprehensive guide to horse care. We will not endeavour to do that here. But we do want to share with you some examples of horse care as they happen at HPRA.

There may be posts about the general work that goes into ensuring horses’ good health and wellbeing, and about keeping the property in optimal condition for horses. We will also show you the work of some of the experts who provide services at HPRA: farrier, equine dentist, chiropractor and equine presentation specialist.
