Dr. Ina Gosmeier studied veterinary medicine at the University of Giessen in Germany, after which she obtained specialized certification in acupuncture, undertaking additional studies in Chinese herbology at universities in China and Switzerland. Since 2002, she has been responsible for the horses on the German national teams at championship events and in international competition, where her job is to maintain the health, well-being, and performance of the horses, using naturopathic methods."
It's fascinating stuff--and if Ingrid Klimke (who wrote the
foreword) and the German team get results with Traditional Chinese
Medicine, then I think I'll be giving it a try with my

Acupressure for Horses by Ina Gosmeier will reveal the benefits of this therapy. Chapters include an explanation of what acupressure is and why is can be a less intense method of healing than acupuncture, the different channels of energy, horse types, acupressure points and correct application to lessen effects of unsettling events such as yard move, travelling or competing. -- Wendy Parsons * The Essex Rider *
