"Zoopharmacognosy interested me though I knew little about it. Carly is an expert in the field so I went to Whitethorn Farm in Sligo for a weekend of Level 1 coaching with her. Classroom and practical sessions with horses allowed us to start to understand how the essential oils, powders, clays herbs and more could be used.
About a year later I attended another weekend of Level 2 coaching. Level 2 goes deeper into the theory of zoopharmacognosy, and allows the participants to use their own ideas and suggestions when working with the horses.
Personally I love the fact that it is always the horse that choses. They are not held at all. Joining in is totally up to them.
Personally I have seen some very clear reactions and have had one owner say that without the oils she probably wouldn't still have her horse.
I am just a real novice who is fascinated. To learn properly go to one of Carly's courses "

Carly is a wealth of information and knowledge on all things zoopharmacognosy. Her passion for her work is infectious and her dedication to learning is truly admirable.
Furthermore, I find Carly's online shop a great asset as I can rest assured that the oils and herbs are of a very high standard, this takes much of the stress out of getting a zoopharmacognosy kit together.
I look forward to further study with Carly in the future
