Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation:
Denali is committed to providing a detailed horse specific rehab plan to address all of your horses needs. This means addressing the rehab concern but also the horses temperament, nuances, compensation concerns, gastrointestinal health and overall wellbeing. We never expect any rehab to fit within a specific program or set up. This means we often try different stall, turn out, feeding, neighbor and schedule changes to make sure each horse in our care receives the best chance of healing. Rehabs get daily grooming, injury appropriate exercise and attention as well as weekly progress exams by Dr. Workman. This intensive management allows horses to progress further in a shorter amount of time by increasing or decreasing the horses program exactly when they need and not by a pre-set plan.

Denali Equine is committed to horses getting the best care during their stay. This often includes bringing in other specialists and therapists. We are used to an open team setting and welcome your veterinarian to be a part of the plan! We would love to chat with you about the best way to get your horse back in action!

Conditioning Programs:
We believe it’s time the equestrian world treats their horses as the top athletes they are! This means we encourage a team for your horse. The rider, trainer, farrier, and vet are all parts of the team. We believe a fitness specialist should also be a part of the team. Our fitness plans are designed to help horses overcome their weak points and compensation patterns. We work with specific physical therapy exercises to improve your horses overall conditioning. Including dressage exercises, pole work, proprioception, and adaptability work. Fitness cases can be arranged as in house cases, haul ins or at your facility. Clinics are also offered. 

This never replaces the need for a trainer in your team but can help look at the horse’s movement from a different perspective. We love collaborating to help your team reach its goals!
