Digestion influences the

WHOLE horse.


Whether growing, performing, or simply being loved, horses have particular physiological needs respective to their job, life stage, and biological individuality. Understanding the role digestion plays in their overall well-being is key to optimal horse care.


You already recognize just how delicate the equine digestive system is. That’s why a deeper understanding of the intricate ways digestion impacts ALL systems within equine anatomy is critical to improving standards of care across every aspect of the equine world regardless of discipline.


"Anatomy is a living wholeness of function and should be seen as a mystery of form, not static academic structure"

– James S. Jealous DO

“Your gut has capabilities that surpass all your other organs and even rival your brain. It has its own nervous system, known in scientific literature as the enteric nervous system, or ENS, and often referred to in the media as the “second brain.” This second brain is made up of 50-100 million nerve cells, as many as are contained in your spinal cord.”
