CUPCAKES for a CAUSE

CUPCAKES for a CAUSE

Come on out to Barrow ready to celebrate Octoberfest and BRING YOUR SWEET TOOTH! Peyton Whitaker will be celebrating her 10th birthday and selling •cupcakes for a cause• to support H.E.L.P. http://www.helpcenterofaustin.org/ an organization dedicated to Equine assisted therapy. Can't wait to see you all there! HELP is a therapeutic horseback riding center which has served the Austin area since 1984. We teach horsemanship and horseback riding skills to improve life skills to people with a wide range of challenges like autism, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, cerebal palsy, vision challenges, and more! Everyone who has been around horses knows there's something special about the way they interact with us humans and our volunteers, riders, and visitors can attest to their healing effects. HELP operates on a 20 acre facility off of East Howard Lane just south of Pflugerville. We have an outdoor arena, fantastic barn for the hot days, and a 5 acre riding trail for our riders. Our special herd of horses have been screened for this line of work and are selected for their temperment and willingness to do this unique job. If you're interested in volunteering or just to visit contact us to schedule a tour today at volunteer@helpcenterofaustin.org.

Austin clients! Head up to Barrow Brewing Company in Salado on September 23rd to enjoy a beer and a cupcake (or two) in support of H.E.L.P. Center of Austin, an organization dedicated to helping others through equine assisted therapy. http://www.helpcenterofaustin.org/

Summer is here, and full of horses and owners participating in vigorous show schedules, trail rides, clinics, and other events. Often in these circumstances, we’re asking our horses to hop in the trailer and go. AAEP member Dr. Toria Waldron discusses what you should consider for the health and safety of your horse prior to transporting in hot weather.

Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM) is a debilitating neurological disease that cannot be ignored. More than half of all horses in the United States—and in some areas as high as 90 percent—have been exposed to this disease. EPM's ability to masquerade as other health issues, such as lameness or other neurologic conditions, makes it difficult to diagnose. AAEP member Dr. Sarah Reuss breaks down what horse owners need to know about this "master of disguise."

American Association of Equine Practitioners

It's National Farriers Week and today we celebrate the veterinary medicine/farrier partnership! Proper foot care is the cornerstone of maintaining a sound horse, and a good farrier is instrumental in keeping the horse’s feet balanced and well-supported. Since the foundation of the horse is everything, a good farrier is a necessity and a tremendous asset.
